He's kind of a big deal. :)
Anyways, the trip that he won didn't exactly involve me, but he insisted I come along and that we go a couple days early so I could experience the city, too.
Some of the things we did were...
We researched some of the best places to eat and found famous deep-dish pizza, tasty Chicago hot dogs, a juicy steak house, cinnamon-roll french toast, chocolate chip french toast, strawberry waffles, and bananas crepes. We're beginning to consider ourselves "foodies". ;) And the pizza by the way was the best I've ever had. SO. GOOD.
We met up with one of Brandon's long lost friends, Seth, and spent the morning visiting and laughing with him.We entered the wicket lottery and WON! When Brandon's name was called we both yelled and made a little bit of a scene, but we are huge Wicked fans and were ecstatic to have front row seats. Yes, I said front row. There was nothing but the stage in front of us and we could peek over and see the orchestra work their magic. We could even see spit flying. It was glorious.
We spent one evening walking around Millennium Park enjoying the architecture and recently hung Christmas lights.
I am so grateful for such a wonderful husband who works incredibly hard but still makes his family his first priority. He is absolutely wonderful.
