my weekend: Chicago, soccer game, and awesomeness

STOP! Enter this giveaway!!
(there's only a few days left)


I'm back!! Many of you know that  I spent my weekend in Chicago with Chris and his brother and his brother's girlfriend. It was a fabulous weekend and I have a huge place in my heart for the big city now. During the 6 hour car ride we took there, I was bitter about paying the 5 tolls to drive on the Illinois highways, but they have some damn nice highways in that state. You got me there Illinois. I also learned that Illinois residents don't give two shits about the speed limit, especially the mini vans. I was glad Chris was driving. 

Saturday we woke up early and drove straight into the city. Sabrina, Andrew's girlfriend and also a professional Illinois driver, gave us a quick tour around before we parked. It made me dizzy to look out the window up at the skyscrapers, but I loved looking at the beautiful buildings, wishing I owned a condo in one of them. We parked the car and walked along the shore before going to the Field Museum. I found out where Oprah lived (she's got a pretty nice place). After that we walked to the silver bean and also the fountain. I instantly fell in love with the city while walking around it. If I wasn't such a baby about needing to stay close to my mom, I would live there. 

Saturday night we went to the Chicago Fire soccer game. Chris was as excited as a 5 year old on Christmas and I finally got into when I got pissed off at one of the opposing players. The douche lord pushed over the camera man's television camera just because it was in his way. I don't know why I got so upset about this, but I was giving the dude the mental finger all throughout the game. The Fire won the game (woop!) and we went home. Sunday was a lazy morning, because we all pooped. Sabrina and Andrew took us out to breakfast and then sent us on the road. A great end to a short weekend. :)

And for those of you who don't like reading or don't know how, these pictures are for you. I stole a couple of Andrew's photos, because he snapped a few good ones. His are the better quality ones. Enjoy!

I love Chicago. It's about time for me to make another trip back up there. I visit at least two or three times a year. So glad that it's only a few hours ride on the MegaBus.
