I made it to the HLS!
I am exhausted, so this post is gonna be a quick one. Need to catch those zzz’s. Here’s a rundown of my first day in Chi-town:
Woke up extra early this morning (hello 4:45am) to give myself plenty of time to get to the airport. Subsequently missed the exit for the airport on the turnpike, which added 20 minutes to the drive. Woops! Then I parked in thee farthest spot in the parking lot, only to tote my two over packed bags to the furthest terminal (Cleveland Hopkins seriously needs a shuttle!).
1 luna bar, 1 subway egg-white English muffin, and 3 cups of coffee later I arrived in Chicago!
After some help from the waiter, I went with the shitake mushroom quesadilla:
It was DELICIOUS. Definitely check this place out next time you’re in Chicago! I also want to mention how cool it was to be sitting at a table of awesome ladies and ALL of us were snapping photos of the food! Usually it’s just me being the “weird” one. Kind of liberating 🙂
After lunch, we took an Architect Boat tour. I’m not super in to architecture, but I DO love boats, sunshine, and taking pictures 🙂
Here’s a few of the pics for your viewing pleasure 😀
After the boat tour & some much-needed showering, we headed to the LaSalle Power co for a cocktail party:

On that happy note, goodnight friends!
