Joe and I are about to have our 4th year anniversary and we decided to pick out our own gifts this time around. It's just easier! Joe is getting a watch and I picked these shoes by Jeffrey Campbell. I am in love! I know, I know...they look a lot like the clogs from a few posts ago but I neeeeed these!

It is officially weekend time! I first just want to say that, while I know it may sound silly, I am so excited about already having 4 followers! I will always remember you guys as my first and your support means more than you know. It took me a long time to get up the courage to start this blog and you have no idea what it means to see that you guys like what you see so far! Thanks!! I'll try and keep it up.

There was another boat ride offered called the "Architecture Tour" and that was an hour cruise down the river. I really wanted to switch our tickets to that because there is a scene in My Best Friend's Wedding when the characters are on a boat ride just like that on the river in the middle of the city! Anyone know the scene I'm talking about? See the title of the post for a hint at what happens during that scene. Anyway...we obviously had to ride the Ferris wheel before leaving. We are such tourists. Oh, well.
As you can see in this next picture, I wore sandals on this particular day and it was the biggest mistake ever. I was regretting it all day! After we left Navy Pier we walked up and down Michigan Avenue all afternoon and I couldn't wait to get home and put big, comfy socks on. It was the only day we took cabs instead of the train! I guess I should wear uncomfortable shoes more often so we can take cabs..hmm....

Friday night in Chicago we ate at a tapas restaurant called Cafe Ba Ba Reeba. My cousin told us its very "trendy" to eat tapas so we gave it a shot. It ended up being really fun, and cheap, and good! I will definitely be going back!
Can you tell I was excited that my shirt matched the color on the pole here? haha....This station is by my sisters school and they have a contest that students can enter to get their haiku poems put up on the poles. How cool is that? She entered for next year so you may see another one of these pictures one day.

The shirt I'm wearing here was only like $12 from Forever 21. Don't you just love good deals? I wanted to wear it on its own but the Chicago weather stopped me. Can't wait for summer temperatures!

The inevitable first post. Let's skip the intro and go straight for the good stuff, shall we? This past weekend my boyfriend and I drove to Chicago to visit my little sister, Darbee, who you will probably meet very soon.
We went for lunch at Earwax Cafe (really cool place if you are ever in Chicago), walked around for a few hours, and took the train back to get ready for dinner.
