the second city.

What better way to ring in the new year than by spending it up in the air?

That’s right. Jordan and I will be greeting 2010 Chicago-style. Thanks to an anniversary gift (my husband is so clever), we’ll be spending the first few days of the new year climbing Sears Tower, eating deep dish pizza, channeling our inner Barack Obama, and staring longingly into stores along the Magnificent Mile.

Of course, our newly cemented resolutions of patience and simplicity will be tested by Nigerian terrorists, lengthy security lines, risqué patdowns, and, according to Jordan’s mom, uncooked airport food, but who’s counting?

So, here’s your chance: any place I need to hit up while I’m in Chi-town? Restaurant and shop recommendations? Ideas for staying warm? (The high while we’re there will be in the 20s. THE HIGH.) Indoor adventures in case our Southern bodies can’t adjust to the drastic change in temperature?

Seriously, let us know. We’re so excited for this trip, but with our holiday schedules, we’ve barely had the time to plan, leaving us very open to any suggestions you might have.

Post your comments (or email me: to help us complete our bare itinerary!

Windy City… I think I just might love you!

well, it looks like you are just going to miss Nick Jonas on the 17th. what a bummer.

sears tower has a new thing on the top floor with a glass floor sticking out of the building. It looks terrifying and awesome at the same time.

Please don't channel too much of your inner Barack Obama and you can always bring me back Michael Jordan/ Dennis Rodman stuff.

I'd like to channel my inner Barack Obama to lead this nation back to godly values. ;)

Seriously, though, I'm looking forward to it too. :)
