It wasn’t all Work

In addition to yesterday’s post featuring our new floors, I alluded to a bigger project that I tackled at the cottage.  Well, it was such a painful experience that I cannot yet place it in a post.  You will have to wait another day for me to relive the craziness of it all.

So you know our spring break was not all work, I wanted to share some highlights that made us happy!

We stayed in a fabulous hotel – The Fairmont – Millennium Park.  We had an amazing view out our suite windows.

We hit Navy Pier, Hancock Building and dined at Gino’s East, all on our first evening.

We had to eat at Gino’s East because Lady Gaga had been there recently.  I must say, New York pizza is so much better!

Views from the John Hancock Building.

We hit Shedd Aquarium and then the girls and I hit some stores.

Dinner at the original Morton’s (in the basement) was a nice end to the day.

On our final day, we spent the morning at the Art Museum.

There were amazing art collections featured here.  Unfortunately, I saw this and could only think of the tv show.  Tells you what kind of art enthusiast I am!

Just to drive my point home.  I spied this beautiful piece and all I could do was think of painting it.

Perhaps Heirloom White would bring her back to life?  I’m sure that would go over well with the art community!

When I look through our photos I am reminded of our wonderful visit to Chicago.

From Chicago our cottage is 2 hours toward home.  We planned to stay a few days open it up for the season and catch up with friends.

It was a shock when we opened the front door to the cottage.

I will fill you in tomorrow!
