I went to Chicago during the first half of the week for a 2 day training for work. I arrived Monday evening around 9, too late to really do much with an early morning the next day. One of my coworkers from Houston also attended the training so I had a buddy to do some sightseeing with, which we did Tuesday night. I had been to Chicago a couple times before, but I never gone to Millennium Park to do the touristy pictures in front of the Bean and Buckingham Fountain. So that's exactly what we did. :)
The inside of the bean was trippy.
The very next day I headed to San Antonio with my friend Carly and her adorable 5 month old baby, to meet up with our bestie Melissa for a girls weekend and to celebrate her birthday. On Saturday we checked out the different missions in the city. It was neat learning about the history and how they lived back then and the old buildings were beautiful. The weather was ridiculously hot, but that's Texas for you in the summer! Carly's baby was a trooper and was so well behaved despite the heat. We finished up the afternoon with a late lunch on the Riverwalk. It was a fun day.
We headed back to Houston Sunday afternoon after a delicious brunch of red velvet pancakes. It was a fun weekend, but I was happy to get home and relax after being away for so much of the past week.
Has anyone been following the World Cup? That tie was such a heart breaker for the USA in the last minute of the game on Sunday. Luckily we will still be able to advance if we beat or tie Germany on Thursday. I'm excited to watch the game! :)
