We went into the city Laurann's first night there and ate at Grand Lux. We were starving and it was yummy!
Outside Wicked. It was amazing and I loved it just as much the second time.
We ate so much on this trip-hersheys, pizza, popcorn, ice cream, and lots more.

Laurann's flip flops broke in the airport. She found these pink slippers at a newstand for $5. It was a perfectly funny ending to our trip.

I went to Chicago back in May for the Autism One conference for work. My friend Laurann came along to take advantage of the free hotel and see the city. I didn't get the chance to do many touristy things, but we did venture into the city a couple times and got to see Wicked. I saw it in NY in the fall and loved seeing it for the second time. I love that show and the music! I've done my fair share of traveling the past few years, but I did learn a few things on my trip.

*Even when you're only gone for 3 days, take an extra pair of jeans
*Make sure to arrive at the airport in plenty of time (If you don't check in 40 minutes before the flight, they won't let you check in)
*Try to find some way to take a carry on only-haven't figured out how with the liquid restrictions but I'm open to suggestions
*American Airlines has the worst customer service. Do NOT fly that airline
*Ipods work wonders for loud people on airplanes
*I still LOVE Wicked!
*Chicago is a fun city and I would love to go back when I can spend more time


  1. I loved your tips when taking trips.. I hope you are having fun in Mexico. I miss you!

  2. I love that you get to travel so much! And I am incredibly jealous that you have gotten to see Wicked TWICE!!! I'm still dying to see it once!!! Maybe someday! I love the music!
