E&E Take on the Windy City!!

archive, life

hey hey hey!!

So, Ella came to Chicago for 5 nights last week! She came for my bday 🙂 !!


It was super fun because I got to take her places that I go to frequently, that she doesn’t have back home in the big TX.

Here’s what us BFFs did

  • Libertyville
  • Around Libertyville – Area (way far/not far…just not l’ville)
    • Superdawgs – where Ella could try my ABSOLUTE favorite Chicago-style hotdogs 🙂
    • Sushi Thai – YUMMY! I wanted to take E to my FAV sushi place. I think she LOVED it!! We even ended din din w/ some mochi & bubble tea.
  • The WINDY CITY!!
    • ICE SKATING @ Maggie Daley Park – hahah… thinking about Ella ice skating is just hilarious! When she would fall (…which was about every minute) then I would fall because I’m laughing so hard! **HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO DO WITH YOUR BFF**
    • Bombobar – Very yummy (lol & hot) HOT COCO place! I never have been previous to this trip but I been following them on Instagram (← click that link to checkout their page) and I was sure it would be fun to take E there! And we both LOVED it 🙂
    • The Bean – Haha of course! I think this may have been the highlight of Ella’s trip 😉
    • Art of Pizza – A taste of Chicago Pizza! … from Chicago’s #1 deep dish …whoops… we got thin crust;)
    • Bites Asian Tapas – A yummy asian food place that is SO good! TRY the Cookie Dough Chopsticks for dessert!

I have picked up the Chicago accent… I just said “you guys” instead of “y’all”. — Ella
