The craziest most random vacation ever!!! I’m back!


Where to begin about the coolest weekend I’ve ever had? First off I did so well on the plane that I have to pat myself on the back for it. I didn’t cry & I just kept my eyes forward & CJ was a doll & gave me his laptop to watch a movie on it so I wouldn’t be upset. Chicago…is so different from New York that I think I have a bit of a culture shock from it. I live in the mountains in NY & there is really only a few skyscrapers in the city. Chicago is a city in the sky. Unbelievable city up in the air. I apparently have vertigo because I started getting dizzy up on those high rises & nauseous. But everywhere I went I was basically on the set of a movie in more ways than one. Driving in I recognized some places from the movie The Dark Knight & Ferris Bueller’s Day off but then turned the corner & found myself on the movie set of Transformers 3. Oh yeah…let me give you a run down of what happened.

Saw Shia Lebouf & Patrick Dempsey right smack in front of the hotel filming a scene, the chase scene where the joker is running after batman, got to see the Trump Plaza, went to the Sears tower but alas the skydeck was closed, was in the longest thunderstorm ever!, I can’t belive how flat Chicago is, got to go to Wrigley Field, somehow ran into a Soul Asylum concert, went on the coolest Architecture tour on the Chicago River, got to see Lake Michigan, went to a party on a 40 story building rooftop, went to the Ferris Bueller’s day off high school & saw the water tower, got to see & ride the L in the Chicago loop like in the movie The Fugitive, got to eat Dim Sum in China town, got to spend some romantic nights with CJ, got to feel what it’s like to have a companion which has me on cloud nine, got to walk the streets of Chicago & feel the wind…and omg so much more…

There are so many differences from NYC, especially the Revolving doors. Everywhere there is revolving doors. Towards the end I started getting sick from all the twisting. I had so much fun I can’t begin to write it all down so I’ll just have to show you. Being on the set of the movie was probably one of the coolest things I’ve ever accidentally done. Here’s some shots from the trip!

Omg so many pictures!! I'll have to do a Part 2 tomorrow! I can't believe how jammed back it was with stuff to do & me getting a lil sick from the heights & boat & revolving dooors didn't help but it was still one of the best times I've ever had! Stay tuned for Part 2 tomorrow!! =) I'll be back around everyone's blogs too! I miss you guys!
