Every chance that I get to travel, I take it by the horns. Traveling is one of those things that really helps me ease my mind and relax me from the daily hustle.
Ever since I was a little girl I was very intrigued with Chicago. My parents actually worked there many years before I was born and the stories they told/tell me always intrigued me. It sounded so beautiful and like the perfect hub for all cultures. I especially used to love the fact that Lithuanians have a whole part of town where they group in order to keep our culture and customs alive, which can be hard when you move to a different country.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to travel to Chicago. I am blessed to say the least. The weather was beyond beautiful and the activities were beyond exciting! The fall season is here so technically Chicago residents have a few weeks left of the superb weather which I was lucky enough to experience. It was right in the middle, low 70’s which is perfect (it was nice to get away from the humid weather of Florida).
I actually attended a fabulous wedding there but made sure to explore a little bit of the city. I actually have visited Chicago numerous times and each time I go, I try to get a different taste of the city.
Here are some glimpses of my trip!
The first thing on the agenda as soon as we got off of the airplane was to get Chicago style hotdogs….which to a hotdog enthusiast was HEAVEN!!
The wedding rehearsal dinner was at Gibson’s which is actually a pretty famous restaurant in the downtown area! Fancy to say the least! The steak there was without a doubt the best I have ever had. If you’re in the city and you want to spend some moola, stop on it! You wont be disappointed.
The wedding was held at a stunning golf course country club. We ate, we drank wine and we danced the night away. It was beyond perfect!
This by far was my favorite day. We spend the whole day in the city. I started the day off with seeing my amazing friend Mona. We had brunch at Ann Sather’s and let me tell you, their pancakes are killer!
After brunch Peter and I attended my first Cub’s and overall my first baseball game. It was full of hotdogs, ciders and cheering! They lost haha but all is well because I had an awesome time. We closed off the trip with a nice dinner in Greek Town at a place called Greek Islands. I was quite pleasantly surprised at how authentic this restaurant was! Really close to the food I have had in Greece! Yum!
And lastly, can’t leave this out! Here are two of my makeup looks from the trip!
This trip was full of fun and good food. I had an amazing time and I can’t wait to go back! Hope you enjoyed the pictures and my little run down of the activities!
