Chicago Trip - Oprah

We just returned from Chicago ... it was a quick trip - but worth it and nice to get out of town! My wonderful husband somehow got us tickets to the Oprah show ... but I don't think reality hit him until later that he would have to attend with me - hahaha, JK! It was an amazing experience. She walked into the studio about 5 feet from me and talked with the audience afterwards for about 20 mins. She's definately a very nice and laid-back woman in real life! On the negative side (from Chad's point of view...) we didn't walk away with a free car or vacation to Hawaii :( The show topic was on addictions and doesn't have an air date yet. Anyway, we also did some quick sight-seeing before we had to leave...

Macy's.... 9 stories tall .... where we spent most of the day shopping!!!

They have already decorated for Christmas. It reminded me of the Macy's in NYC :)

Our little girl is famous, yet again ...

And again ....

Bricks that surrounded Wrigley Field

At our hotel .... I've never been put together this early in the morning in a really long time!

Looks like you had a great trip. What a sweet husband he is for getting you O tickets! We need to get together for a playdate with Laura before she goes back to work.
