Chicago Mini-cation!

About six months ago, my best friend moved to Chicago because she just couldn't stand to hang out with me for another second. Okay, just kidding. She moved there with her boyfriend because of his semi-swanky magazine job. So I've been telling her for months now that I'd come visit and I finally made good on that promise this past weekend. Boyfriend got a day off work and we set out on a mini-cation! Of course, if you follow me on Instagram you're seeing these photos for the second time.... So SORRY! ;) 

We walked a lot, rode the train, played free games at an arcade bar, caught up with old high school friends, took touristy photos in "The Bean," had a delicious breakfast feast, and went to the zoo! I have the blisters to prove it. They're really gross. I'm like, embarrassed at how disgusting my toes are right now. I'm just hoping they heal before I'll be sporting my sandals on the beaches of Hawaii! 

I have one more week of classes and then I'm off to the islands. I'm hoping to get some serious crafting done this weekend for y'all. I've been having blogging withdrawals with all this homework and whatnot taking priority lately... All I wanna do is make pretty things and tell you all about it! ;) 

What have you been up to, readers? Anything crafty or fun? I'd love to hear about it!

  1. Oh, how I love Chicago! Such a neat place! Where in Hawaii are you going? I went to Waikiki last year and I loved it!

    1. Riiiight? So fun!!

      I'm staying with a friend in Honolulu, but I'll be there for about 10 days and I'll definitely be checking out Waikiki! I'm super excited :) Any recommendations for fun stuff to do?!

  2. Are you originally from here? Chicago that is, not the weird internet-o-sphere. Glad you had a good time in my fair city!

    1. Haha, nope, I'm from southeast Michigan, but Chicago isn't too far away! It makes for a fun weekend getaway. :)

  3. Sounds like you had fun!

    You're going to Hawaii?
    I'm a bit jealous now!:)
