Well, that was a crazy-fun trip. Kate & I drove to Chicago in the wee hours of the morning to catch our 9 a.m. flight. It's about a 3.5-hour drive and we like to be early, so you can do the calculations (yep, it was very early). The great thing, though, was that it was an early non-stop flight (also a great fare) so we had time to actually do stuff when we arrived! We also bought advance tickets for almost everything, and that really helped to maximize "doing" time. The Soho Grand Hotel was fantastic (thank you, hotwire!), but not really in the best area for all the shows; we got around by taxi on Friday afternoon & Saturday morning, then on foot after that. We lucked out in the weather department, and it felt great to be outside!
Window shopping near our hotel... the CUTEST, but $150 for a pair of kiddo jeans. Um, nope.
On Monday, Tribeca Bagels and return flight!
We never made it, as hoped, to the High Line, Central Park (proper), the Whitney Museum of American Art or MoMA -- we were in visiting distance of each, though. There's only so much time (and energy) in a day!!
Trust me, there are tiny green buds on those trees!
There may have been 8" of snow a couple of days before we arrived, but spring is springing in NYC! I'll be back with more now that I've sort of figured out how...
Meanwhile, I found this #throwbackthursday playlist on Spotify this morning and had to share:
SISTERS ARE SINGIN' IT!
