For those with kids they bring this bear which is about 8 feet tall in your room with toys, candy.. etc, Maddox was a little young so we didn’t bother to do it – but I can see my niece and nephew who are a little older (4 & 7) who would love something like this!

nespresso machine
We’re new to using a Nespresso machine and all I can say is – life changing!

bloomingdales in chicago
Not only was it the Bloomy’s & Neiman’s Friends & Family sale, it was the Nordstorm Half Yearly sale as well! Needless to say – we did a fair share of shopping!

Of course a trip to the Art Institute of Chicago is a must when visiting! It is one of my favorite museums!

He was less impressed with ‘The Bean’ than I was..

This was our first trip on the Airplane with M and He passed with flying colors!! He flew like a champ and didn’t even cry once (here’s to hoping this wasn’t beginners luck and he continues to fly great)! We have another trip coming up in the beginning of July, a little bit longer than this past trip. I definitely picked up a few tips which you can read about in my upcoming post ‘Trains, Planes, Automobiles & Babies: Traveling Tips’.

Maddox and I had a great time in the Windy City. We went for walks every morning, did some shopping in the afternoon – even had a little bit of time to relax and get some sun one day (at least I did)!
