roadbound

we are in the westin hotel in downtown chicago on michigan avenue.....

julie is out getting us our morning starbucks....while me and our wonderful friend sharon andrews are laying in bed talking.....

i love me some chicago....home to the cubs, white sox, da bears, awesome shopping, awesome friends, antiques, and the best darn hotdogs....

we are making our way to valley ridge art studio .. sharon and i will be taking a class with nina bagley yesterday we spent the day with more of our wonderful friends jane and laura ..going to our favorite antique mall..jackson square mall, then to an estate sale, then to a totally cool bead store called bead heaven and then next door is a wine store where we finally got to sit down and relax with some good wine and snacks...we sat and talked for awhile and laughed ourselves silly!
then we made our way to a slice of heaven...
PORTILLOS..for chicago style hotdogs....


no visit to chicago is ever complete without a stop at portillos...yummy!!

more later as class doesnt start until friday!
