Sometimes getting away for just a couple days is all you need. We flew out on Thursday at 4ish in the afternoon (almost missing our flight because we just HAD to stop for Chipotle) and got in to Chicago around 8ish. Luckily, D is broken so he got wheeled around the airport, we got to skip all the security lines and we got to sit on the very front row of the plane, woot woot! Once we got there we went to get our rental car (which was awesome) and I had a minor melt down about how huge the city was and how much traffic there was and how I was sure we would die or be lost for days. To which my husband responded, "get it together Beverley". Classic. Anyway we made it to the hotel which was beautiful dropped our bags off and you guessed it went straight to get some deep dish pizza.
Giordano's is the best. It is super atmospheric especially during game six of the world series at the bottom of the 8th. Ya, I think it was Danny's dream come true. We ordered a 12 inch deep dish pizza that was ridiculous. When Danny saw it come out his face fell and he looked so sad. I asked him what was wrong and in the sulkiest voice said, "we should have ordered the 14 inch". haha crazy boy. But it was so fun to just be away, eating pizza, watching the world series and haning out with my boy.
The next morning was the big med school interview. D just got a new suit and he looked amazing! The picture did not do it justice. I dropped him off on campus and he was gone from 8-2. I went back to the hotel
and read my textbook, finished my quiz and got a great start on my paper and took a nap and hung out in the "business lounge" and a read a book. It was so relaxing.
D's interview went really, really well and he loved teh campus and the university. It was pretty funny when everyone found out he was from Utah. One kid asked him about Jimmer, another about non caffeine and two about that "kid that got kicked off the team for having sex with his girlfriend". Then we went and just explored the city. There was so many amazing stores and restaurants and it was just gorgeous. It seemed like a place we would actually really love to live.
We stopped and got a Christmas ornament for our collection (a total of three so far). I love that we are starting to collect things from places we have gone together. Danny gave me his heart, or just a really cheesy foam anatomy heart he got from the school, but I liked it either way.
So there is one option for our future life. Many more to come we hope!!
