Chicago Trip

Last week, my parents and I flew up to Chicago to visit my Grandparents and celebrate Christmas. I love going there to visit my family, eat some of my favorite food and go to all the great shopping spots! I also love when it snows when I visit because we don't get too much snow down in North Carolina, so it makes it a fun treat :)

My parents and I headed downtown to do some shopping one day. We usually go to Water Tower Place and Michigan Avenue but we went over to see the window displays at Macy's and do some shopping there. While we didn't end up buying anything it was a fun way to get in the holiday spirit.

We braved the cold and rain and walked over to Millennium Park to see the ice rink and take a typical tourist photo in front of the bean. After that we warmed up with some hot chocolate at Le Pain Quotidien.

See the outfit I wore downtown in this post.

A trip to Chicago is not complete without a visit to Portillo's. I got my usual Italian beef sandwich and tried the chocolate cake shake (highly recommend)!

After mass on Christmas morning, my Grandma made her famous apple pancakes. They're my favorite and I always look forward to having them during the holidays! 
(Also how cute is my Grandma's navy and white striped backsplash)

Hope you all had a great Christmas!
