our anniversary getaway.
Last weekend we headed up to Chicago for the weekend for a much needed escape from reality. We liked to use the excuse that it was our anniversary, which it was, but we needed to just get away for a couple days.
We had been wanting to do this for a while and I'm glad we finally got to do it.
Chicago's about a 5 hour drive north of here and although I've lived in Illinois my whole life, I had never really been there. People from the south really don't like to claim Chicago so it's like being in a whole other state when you're there.
It was a good time.
We took a bus up there, which I was hoping to have taken the train but waited too long for tickets, so I stumbled across the megabus. It was less than $80 for both of us round trip, plus it is a double decker bus and it was so neat!
We ate well, walked miles daily looking at all sites and stores, took a boat tour, watched fireworks, and just enjoyed being with each other away from here.
Weekend getaways are so nice, but damn can they be expensive! Definitely worth it though and I'm already planning my next one (:
