chi town // chicago shopping trip

yesterday morning we left the house at 6:15 am to horseshoe the lake michigan coast over to chicago. i have now lived in michigan for 2 years and yet to make the 2 and a half hour trip to this amazing city. chicago is my most favorite city that i have visited {so far...} and i was so pumped to be hitting the pavement for a shopping trip! we took the bus, which made the drive time a little longer, but i did like the convenience of "just being along for the ride" and no one having pressure to drive. we started the day at Garretts to get some popcorn to beat the rush and avoid a very long line. we shopped all day and even hit up a few high end stores for the fun of it. {side note; every time i walk through free people, i fall in love with pretty much everything, then i check the price on the pair of $98 leggings and my brain just about explodes. still love their style though...} the picture of the guy drumming on the plastic bucket? i love his sign: "be prudent, help out a student. giving is living". so...i wonder if he makes more sitting on the street all day rather than working? anyway, we ended the night at cheesecake factory, hence that big bowl of pasta above. love that place! i didnt even get a picture of my cheesecake because i was so excited for that first bite! if you have never tried "adam's peanut butter cup fudge ripple" get it next time your there. seriously. as you can see in the last picture, we hit the beginnings of another november snow on the way home. needless to say, 22 hours later, it is still snowing outside! all together a great trip, and there were even some christmas decorations that snuck in!
