Traveling (part 5)

Wow! Today was a long, fun day. We decided to drive when we found out that the train ride was early and had very many confusing stops. Our trip took off at ten in the morning with nice sunny weather. After about a half an hour, it started to sprinkle…then POUR. It was raining cats and dogs! I could barely see the cars in front of me. Once we drove across the bridge and parked in the parking garage, it was still raining. We ran across the street as fast as we could under a roof. We planned where we were going to eat lunch – a famous deep-dish pizza place! We finally made it and ordered our food. 40 minutes later… Our cheesy deep dish pizza finally arrived! It was the best pizza I had ever eaten. It was so cheesy and yummy beyond belief. Once we were finished, it had stopped rainy and it was beginning to clear up. We started to walk on the Magnificent Mile and shopped on Michigan Avenue. We stopped at a Starbucks to get a few refreshments and I tried another drink from the secret menu! This time I tried the Turtle frap, a chocolate delicious drink. When we were finished, we stopped by a few more stores such as Forever 21, H&M, Hollister, Victoria’s Secret, etc. Our last stop was Sephora, and surprisingly I didn’t find anything there! I love their little travel sized product bins placed where you check out, but it was really overpriced. I could’ve sworn that I saw the same thing at Ulta for a much lower price! I was disappointed in that – I prefer Ulta because they carry high end and drugstore products. Chicago was full of skyscrapers! It was really fun and I enjoyed it! I’ll post a separate Chicago OOTD up soon. Here are some pictures below!

Traveling (part 1)

Hey guys! As of right now, I’m sitting in a lounge at the airport. So far, I’ve had five doughnut holes and found the free wifi. I’m writing this post on my iPad mini and it’s hard to type, so excuse spellers. I’m going to land in Chicago and then my family and I are driving to South Bend.
This morning was hectic! I set my alarm for 3:30 am, only to lay in bed for another half hour. Everyone was rushing and doing last minute packing. At last, the van arrived and picked us up. We drove to the airport, went through security in under five minutes, and hopped right into the lounge. I’m going to board in ten minutes, so I’m trying to finish this up! I don’t want to leave with an uncompleted blog post.
I’ll have more photos when I land and share a more detailed experience. The flight isn’t very long, only five hours, well I guess you could consider that long if you don’t fly often! I’m used to 12-13 hour flights to Germany and it’s pretty long!
Here is a photo below of the plane. I’ll check in a few hours! Have a great day!
