Chicago in two days.... GO!

So my crazy friends and I decided to visit Chicago (8 hours away, mind you) in one weekend. I didn't actually think we'd do it--just one of those times I thought we'd talk about it but never get around to it, but I was wrong. We picked a date about three weeks ago and went for it hard core this weekend. boy am I sleepy (and sore!). I'll save you all the torture of looking through lots of pics, but I will plug my flickr site for you to see them (see link top left corner).

Anyway-- to make a long weekend fit into this tiny blog-- we got there at 11:30pm and immediately hit the town of Wrigleyville which is PACKED with 20-somethings all out for a drunk time. Went to some bar below Amanda Swink's place, then promptly to a quieter (not Brittney and Michael Jackson songs BLARING from the speakers right by our heads) place next to Improv Olympic. Saturday Jeff and I hit up Millennium Park, the Cubs game (LOVE Wrigley field! LOVE), and then to, sadly, Navy Pier with the other million visitors of the city that weekend. I have to say, the whole day was great until I ordered the "big green salad" at this restaurant we were at at Navy Pier and it came out a giant bowl of iceberg lettuce. I was pissed... but I digress... Sunday we went to brunch (Chicago people are obsessed with the not-breakfast not-lunch thing, and they'll wait an hour and a half to get it, dang-it!) and then my favorite, H&M. Oh god how i love that place... sigh.

anyway, in other news, returning to work was good today because we hired someone for the position I lost under me last week. Also, Mara finished my LOGOS for Mitch and Winnie! Do you like? Does it express my "style" well?

Chicago? Ugh, I'm 210% jealous. Once, when I had just got to college, some friends of mine and I decided to go to Chicago...right then, at 8 pm! We drove there, stayed for four hours, then drove home. 16 hours round-trip, for 4 hours in the greatest city I've ever been to--It was fantastic!
Anyway, that logo is rad! I like...
