A Day Downtown

Today my friend Emillie and I went downtown for a day of fun. :) Once we made it there, we went straight to the Skydeck of the SEARS Tower. (It is NOT Willis. No. NO!) Neither of us had been there before, so it was super fun!

The front of the building.
Emillie and John Hancock. :)
Me and the same.
Some pics from the amazing-view windows.

It's a LONG way down...
Really long. I had to not think about it. :P
Sitting in "The Ledge."

We ate at Ed Debevic's, where the waiters are bratty and treat you like dirt. As soon as we walked in, the hostess girl yelled, "Hey weirdos. How many in your party?" And when we left: "Bye! Thanks for leaving!" :P This time I didn't get shorted on my change. :P
Blurry picture, but I liked this sign.
My first time to The Bean. It was really impossible to get good pics as it was crowded, and we both were in skirts meaning we couldn't do the usual feet-up-on-the-Bean pics. :(
Some theater.
I loved all the red seats. :)
After walking around Millennium Park, Em and I walked the Magnificent Mile and looked into a few shops. I just had to get a pic of these gorgeous blue plates I drooled over in Crate & Barrel. I might buy just one somewhere. That blue is perfect.
This was one of three windows full of Singer machines. Pretty neat. :)
"Anything you're looking for, miss?" "Yes. Something red and Blackhawks." {The Blackhawks Store, naturally. :P}
And the one-day-over-full moon. It was spectacular tonight. Still is, in fact. :P
So very fun day, and many thanks to Emillie for kind of putting it together and driving. It was great! :)


  1. You two are VERY brave to sit on that glass ledge thingee. My hubby saw the pic and said "Nope, I could never do that! I would totally lose my lunch." lol! He doesn't like heights and I'm not too crazy about them, either. More power to ya :)

  2. It will always be the Sears tower to me :)

  3. Oh no. A pro photographer found my blog. ;P Have you ever shot a wedding in Chicago, Evy?
