Chi-town


















When I said my weekend was busy, I mean it was busy. 

After coming home from the wedding on Saturday I met up with Bri and Meta to head down to Chicago for the weekend.

First we went down to Ikea to pick up some things for our apartments. I crossed a lot of stuff off my apartment list. M left with only one thing...self-control like I've never seen before.

When we finally had our fill of Swedish goods we dropped off our cars and finds at our friend Dave's house in Park Ridge so we could take the train into the city. 
There were many a shenanigan in the train as you can see above.

We walked to meet our friends at Pizzeria Due for some pie. 
Uno's opened Due as an extension when the original building became too small for the business they were getting.

After dinner we roamed around the city to the water and then back to the train station. Needless to say, we were wiped when we got back to Park Ridge.

I guess that means it was a goooood day. ;)
