Weekend Away

We headed to Chicago this past weekend for a little shopping, and some r & r.  I love!  We booked a nice hotel near Schaumburg for $45 a night!

One of the reasons for our trip to Chicago was to meet up with our friends Sara & Don Jones (7500 miles blog).  Scott and I went to high school with Sara and they are also adopting from Ethiopia.  We were able to catch up with them over a delicious dinner.  It was great to be able to share stories and see how our experiences have been similar and different.  They are currently on the waiting list and are hoping to get a referral soon.

We headed downtown for the day on Sunday to walk around and do a little more shopping.  

And of course a trip to the Windy City would not be complete without a piece of the thick and cheesy goodness of Chicago style pizza:)

Looks like you had fun! I ran into your mom and Jill last week...I think your mom got all excited seeing little Mimi and imagining what her newest grandchild is going to look like. :) Hope you get that finished homestudy soon so you can get the rest of your paperwork gathered and over to ET!
