The Bells of the Windy City

Last weekend my mom and I spent the week end in Chicago to attend the Randolph Street Market. I planned on taking lots of pictures, but when we go to Chicago I decided not to worry about pictures and to just have fun. :)

This is what I wore Friday - though these pictures aren't from in the city - and even though the rest of the trip was a blast too, I have to say that Friday was my favorite day.  My mom and I took the train into Chicago, got some coffee from Lavaza (the only coffee I like) and then, after putting our things in the hotel room, walked to the Italian Village for dinner - which was actually my favorite part of the whole trip. It was such a nice place for dinner, the appetizer was delicious (I love bread dipped in olive oil and Parmesan cheese!) and my mom and I had a really, really lovely talk. Then we picked up some chocolate and nail polish on the way back to the hotel and spent the night talking more, doing our nails, and watching creepy crime shows. It was a really lovely night. ♥

  5. "The bells of New York City tell me not to go. Stay with me, away with me, a shelter from these broken dreams. Wait right here, away right here, on silent, snow filled streets. Sing to me one song for joy and one for redemption. And whatevers in between that I call mine. With the street lamp light, to illuminate the gray and the Bells of New York City calling me to stay."

    And I did that all without looking. Me thinks I listen to his songs a lot.

    A Bit Unlikely,
