Lessons learned in Chicago

June 21, 2012

Two weeks ago, I made a little weekend trip to Chi-town to meet up with some friends I have met around the internets. Pictures will be coming soon, but in the mean time... here's this:

1. This is awesome, but ONLY if it's served on ice. Warm is no bueno.

2. If I drink red wine (or anything dark for that matter), I WILL spill it on myself and all over the place. Maybe on someone else too :P

3. Larry Byrd will not give up his reserved table to a group of great looking women. No matter how awesome they are.

4. The bean is a really, really, disgustingly dirty piece of art. They need to scrub that thing down.

5. There are many, many people in Chicago. This Texas girl was a little overwhelmed by that.

6. Trader Joe's- there are just no words to describe this place. I cannot wait until they arrive in Austin!

7. Red velvet pancakes are as good as they sound.

8. I (not surprisingly) am continually amazed by the incredible women that are a part of this group. I am so blessed that I have been able to meet you and call you my friends :) Miss y'all! + can't wait for next year!

I did NOT touch the bean. You're right it was really gross :-/

Miss you too!
