So we got all packed up checked the train schedule and started our day in the city. We had no plan or agenda just saw where the day was going to take us...
After we arrived in the city we started to head towards the lake and walk along Michigan Ave. Yes I know very touristy but we thought why not check out the stores and maybe get some good ideas for Christmas.
Along the way we stopped and looked a the famous window display of Macy's for Christmas. I have to say Marshall Field's was much better. While the window displays weren't that whimsical and magical as I remember the outside looked nice.
We then just started walking down to Millennium Park. Here are a couple of photos along the way...
We then finally arrived at Millennium Park. Great photo ops there!
After we looked around and spent some time in the park we headed down Michigan Ave.
I had told my husband there was no way I came all the way down to the city without getting some Sprinkle Cupcakes. They are TO DIE for!! So my lovely husband lead the way all the way up to the North Shore so I could fulfill my desire for some Sprinkle cupcakes.
We walked out with 7 mouth watering cupcakes (red velvet is my personal fav) and carried them all the way home to enjoy as a treat.
All and all I couldn't have asked for a better day off. Got to spend time with my family and enjoy the beautiful city I live in.
