Well Hello, Chicago!

Let the wild fun begin!

First of all, this city is gorgeous.

The jury’s still out on whether or not Midwesterners know how to party, but they sure know how to keep it clean. This city is pristine. At least the 10 blocks I’ve seen so far.

Jenny and I grabbed dinner with Gabrielle last night at Bice and consumed an entire year’s allotted carb intake. Then we wandered around in a simple sugar coma for the rest of the night.

And then Jenny repeatedly insulted my baggage to 15,000 people on Twitter.
Dudes. It’s not THAT big.

Or, well, I mean, it’s kinda big.

A grown woman can stick website stickers all over it, like her own personal billboard, and then climb inside of it. Clutching the entire contents of a mini bar.

This trip will probably get interesting.

    How much do I love that photo of Jenny in your bag? Words cannot describe…

    It IS like a canoe! Don't worry, mine would be the same way. You can't pack light for Chicago :) I really do love the Sheraton towers there…especially the bar way in the back. Only problem with that hotel is a lack of good, inexpensive breakfast options.

    Well, it sounds like a ton of fun!…and just think—maybe she can fly for free on your next trip—just tuck her neatly inside the canoe. …with the liquor.

    I'm still trying to figure out how she got in and out of your suitcase in the middle of a panic attack with the minibar in her lap. That must be some kind of new standard for traveling. Do you get charged extra if the crew can fit in your bag?

    Hi! I came to your blog b/c I saw you on the Pioneer Woman Blog, and I really enjoyed reading. I tried to subscribe (via google reader), but it only gave me a redirect link that circled back to your blog! Please fix your subscription links! Thanks! HAVE FUN!!!!PS – Your suitcase really isn't that big :) You should see the one I'm packing right now to head to Atlantic Beach!

    I see absolutely nothing wrong with the size of your bag! A girl needs what a girl needs!
