Made it to the Windy City

Hotel wireless...gotta love it! I can be on vacation and still blog!

In the last 36 hours we have driven 500+ miles, been swimming twice and have eaten more meals out than should be legal! Tomorrow we are headed to brunch at the American Girl Place Cafe, the Science and Industry Museum and then Aaron and I are going out to eat with my high school friend, Dustin. Busy times, but we're having fun.

After 33 years with my curly hair, I actually have a cut that will allow me to wash and air dry and have decent hair. The hairdresser spent an hour cutting and showing me how to deal with my hair - who knew there was somebody on the planet that knows that a haircut that looks adorable on a straight haired person doesn't always work on curly hair. I think when my hair grows about 6 more inches, I'll have the hair I have always wanted. I know it sounds corny, but it is so exciting I could just about cry!

Off to bed - our fun starts early tomorrow!

Glad to hear you all arrived safe and sound! I almost didn't pop over, knowing you were on vacation...ahhh the wonders of technology, huh? (Just don't ask me to understand it.)

Sounds like you all are having fun so far. And it sounds like you've got lots of fun stuff coming up, too! Can't wait to see some photos!

How are your grandparents doing?

Enjoy the rest of your mini-vacation! Can't wait to hear more about it!

Sounds like fun! And a good haircut is just always one of the best feelings in the world I think.
Believe I heard on tv that there was a new American Girl doll coming out.

I'm so jealous! Chicago is one of my all time favorite vacation spots!! Enjoy the museum! Would love to see a picture of your new haircut! I am ALWAYS interested in something that can be washed and left to do it's own thing!!! Have a great trip!

Yay, you made it ... and safely! I hope y'alla re having a wonderful time. I had to laugh when you mentioned that you were in bed on your laptop the other day in your note to me, LOL. Your laptop goes everywhere!

I'm so glad you're lovin' your new haircut. I have super straight hair and would kill for a few curls!
