True Confession Tuesday: The IRL Edition

All I'm confessing this week is that I finally got to meet one of my "cyber" friends in real life this week! On Sunday, I drove over to Chicago and picked Kirsten

up at the airport. We walked all over the city on Sunday (holy cow my feet were tired). I introduced her to Chicago-Style Deep Dish pizza. We visited "The Bean":

We went to Navy Pier, rode the ferris wheel, and had drinks:

We had yummy Indian food for dinner:

We went to the bar on the 96th floor of the John Hancock Building for more drinks and beautiful views:

There was also some sangria Sunday night. Monday found us running 3 miles along the lakeshore between the water and skyscrapers:

There was shopping and more eating and before long it was time to say, "Goodbye". Hopefully the running and walking helped counteract some of the Chicago debauchery, but if not, spending time and getting to know someone IRL that I have considered a friend for quite some time was worth it.
