hello chicago!

as i depart for my favorite city, let me take you on a bit of a tour of where i'll be and what i'll be doing.... for fun that is. 

(i'm really going for work!) 

 lunch at frankie's on the 5th floor of the bloomingdale's building
the best chopped salad and tomato soup!

and did i mention it's in the bloomie's buidling?
(i was a bloomie's girl for a short first real job in chicago, and my motivation for moving there...a job AND a discount!)

a friend is hosting this event, so i thought it'd be fun to stop by for a little celeb schmoozing!

followed by a little shopping down michigan ave!
have to bring muffy home a little presie!

 seeing the broadway musical and tony-nominated show

dinner at spiaggia --- ahhhhhhh

the best breakfast in town at the west egg cafe, hidden away on a little side street

a trip to oak street beach if it's and magazines are ready!

or the architectural boat tour down the chicago river

dinner at the famed italian rosebud

chicago is definitely my kind of town!

i'll be back on tuesday...have a fabulous weekend!


  1. You have quite the agenda for your time in Chicago.
    The West Egg is a good eatery.

  2. Oh you will have so much fun! And, yes of course sweet Muffy needs a present from AG! My parents had to take me there many times when we were in Chicago!

  3. Love Chicago - the best shopping! The last time I was there for a conference, a group of us went to West Egg. Yum!

  4. Have a wonderful time in Chicago and it sounds like it’s going to be a wonderful weekend! The restaurant in Bloomingdale’s sounds fantastic and it should be really fun to attend the Giuliana Rancic event.

    The meals, shopping and musical all sound like a blast. Is that really a beach in downtown Chicago? If so, that is very cool. I really need a weekend away with the husband in Chi-town ;)

    Have a blast!

  5. Have a wonderful trip! I would love to go to Chicago sometime.

    Can't wait to hear all about it!

  6. Such a fabulous itinerary! CANNOT wait to hear all about it and your day at Bloomies! Safe travels, doll! XO

  7. What fun! Thanks for a great post. Chicago looks amazing!

  8. You have such wonderful things planned, I can't wait to hear all about it! Take lots of pictures! Have a great time and safe travels!

  9. I want to come in your suitcase if only for the fabulous MEALS! YUMMM! I am starving now! :)

    Safe travels beautiful, have a blast, we'll miss you lots!! xoxoxoxoxo

  10. Hope you are having a fab trip! I've never been to Chicago...don't get up North much:) I'm sure I'd find lots a of great shopping, food, and fun there!
