I took the morning off today to head downtown with Fella's mom, aunt and a family friend to watch a live taping of Chicago's new local morning show, Windy City Live. Watching a live TV show was pretty cool! Fella's mom, a regular TCC reader, offered to snap some outfit photos of me on the set, which I couldn't pass up.
After the show, we went out for a quick lunch and did some browsing at the big Macy's (formerly Marshall Field's) downtown on State Street. Thanks to a surprise express train home, which passed my stop by a few, I enjoyed a long walk home, complete with a stroll through the neighborhood Farmer's Market and a stop for ice cream, on a beautiful summer day.
I love taking actual vacations, but I have to say, when summer rolls around here, I love me a staycation. Chicago's such a cool city anyway, but we have so many things going on in the summer. And taking some time to enjoy my city was just what I needed after a pretty busy couple of months. Moving, packing, unpacking, entertaining (welcome and totally wanted) out-of-town guests, friend's weddings and various parties have kept me busy since the beginning of May. But finally getting some time to window shop and walk around on a sunny day was awesome. Do you Staycation?
