Before you ask, the house will NOT be empty.

Normally when we're heading out of town, I don't say anything on Facebook or my blog until we're home. However, in this case, it's just me going. Nathan and Sarah will still be at home so someone is almost always there, day and night. As such, I'm going to share my excitement!

I'm going to Chicago!

I've been planning this trip for months but didn't commit until the last minute, because as with everything else, I'm always hopeful that I'll be pregnant soon and miserably nauseous, so I don't like to plan in advance. I'm meeting up with a group of friends. It's a central location for us, as we're spread out throughout the U.S.

Amtrak ticket purchased

Return flight ticket purchased

CityPass purchased

Hotel booked

T-shirt printed - not yet, better hurry!

I'm super excited! I've been wanting to go on a long train ride, and the scenery is supposed to be beautiful. I'm going to get a hot dog with everything on it and try authentic deep-dish pizza. Not to mention seeing fireworks at the Navy Pier, looking out at the city from what used to be Sears Tower, and more! I promise to take lots of pictures and have lots of fun!

Have fun!!

I am super excited for you!! I love road trips. I love Amtrack too, although I have only been to Portland on the train, it's still a five hour trip. Anyhow, have a blast and take tons of pics and be sure to eat tons of random food and be careful girl!! Love ya!
