Big City, Little Lady Part I


It has been a fabulous time in the big city of Chicago! Even though I live in the same state, it is a big deal to go up into the congestion of major-city traffic and the circus-like hussle and bussle.

First stop: Navy Pier

     Since this is Spring Break, and the snow hasn't completely melted yet in Chicago, most of the rides were closed for the season. The Ferris Wheel was happily open though, and it is a fabulous (though somewhat nightmarish for those of us with acrophobia)  view from the top. We also went inside the Crystal Gardens and admired the tropical flora and fauna- and I mean REALLY admired, considering the only plants outside were the ones that could survive 30-40 degree weather- and then went downstairs for some Auntie Anne's and souvenir-shopping. Now, the whole catalyst for the trip for me was getting a picture with Bob Newhart. Not the real Bob Newhart, of course, but his statue on the couch that resides at Navy Pier. And even though it took us about 20 minutes of searching and 4 or 5 people of inquiring, we could not find that Bob Newhart anywhere; he had apparently been moved for the Pier renovations, and no one seemed to know where he was relocated to. :(
     We did manage to find the Crack the Whip statues and the Captain statue (pictured above), so it wasn't a complete loss, but my Chicago experience won't be complete until I've had my picture taken on Bob Newhart's couch. Even if it means putting it on my bucket list, because I WILL do it if I have too. :)

And thus ends Part I of Chick-ago. Sniff. Good memories.

Goodbye, Winter Blues


 Well, Spring Break has finally sprung! I am so happy to have even a week of relaxation from the hubbub of the school life, and I suspect I am not alone in that regard. Not only does today signify the first day of spring break, it is also the first day of Spring!!!! HOORAY!!! And even better news for part of America is that all of the snow is now completely melted, which means no more wet feet, freezing temperatures, or heavy coats. We even had a day in the 70s! Of course, then it seems really cold when it drops back into the 40s for a couple days, but I guess we really have no room for complaints here.

     Not only am I excited about spring break, but I also have a surprise for Ladyhood readers coming up that we have never done here before, so stay tuned! (Hint: It involves someone winning something). Also next week will bring about an exciting post as I travel north, and that will be a new experience as well. Spring has a way of making things happen- je t'aime Spring!

     Be sure to come back next week to get a piece of all the excitement! What is your favorite part about the season?
