My Weekend In The Windy City

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Hello all you beautiful people!! So, this past weekend I took a trip to where I am from, back to Chicago, Illinois. It was a bit impulsive, my dad and I bought tickets on tuesday, then on thursday we hopped on an airtran plane and flew to a place we both call home. We are the only people in our family to live in a different state so it's interesting to go home and see everyone and everything.

My outfit was so plane comfy it's not even funny. ( I wore legginings and big polka dot sweater and ugg boots!)  I read most of the plane ride there and played Pokemon on the way back.

When we got into the city on Thursday I was so excited about how cold the weather was *not kidding*, I am aching for some chilly weahter so I can drink my hot Starbucks (yes its a big deal when an addict can switch from hot to cold drinks). So anyways, there wasn't much fun to be had on Thursday minus the plane ride and the weather update. We had a pretty late flight (it left at 10:30 Atlanta time and arrived at 11:15 Chicago time). Needless to say I was ready for some beauty sleep when we got to my grandparents house.

Friday my Dad, Grandparents and I took a trip to see fall colors at a park. It was so beautiful and calming. The tree colors don't last too long up there so we were lucky enough to see some beautiful tree colors. And of course I grabbed a Pumpkin Spice Latte for an afternoon pick-me-up!

So, if you didn't know I am a hockey enthusiast *addict*. The Chicago Blackhawks are my boys. (yes, I call them my boys). I love the sport more than you can imagine, it doesn't mater who is playing I love watching. So, needless to say when I found out we were going to see my boys play I actually went a bit hysterical for a second *dramatic*. So my dad and I made our way down to the stadium about 2 hours early to have dinner (hello Italian Beef Sandwich!!) and watch warm ups. I was going a bit insane, I kid you not it was like I was home. Finally with other people who understand my obsession because they are equally obsessed. (In the south I utter hockey and people look at me funny).

I got a little loud, and yelled all the things. However, when we started to realize we were going to lose we decided that maybe we should take a "selfie". Though I have come to the conclusion you can't take my dad anywhere nice.

Sunday my cousin and I went out to celebrate my 21st birthday *a second time, because once was not enough ;)*. It was a blast, I rarely get to see her so it was a lot of fun going around singing kareoke and drinking fun drinks! 

I had a fabulous weekend away from reality, however, sadly I must return to reality *wah*. So, now I must study for a test I have on Wednesday and I must get organized for the rest of the semester ahead! So time to paint nails, and get back to the grind of studying and lack of sleep! 
What did you do this weekend? 

Keep Calm and Carry On
