last week winn told me he was going to plan a mystery weekend to celebrate my birthday. he wouldn't tell me where we were going, only what to pack and how long we would be gone. well, on friday afternoon we got in the car and ended up in chicago that evening! we spent saturday atop the sears tower, strolling through millennium park, eating lunch at elephant & castle, braving the crowds at navy pier, slurping a chocolate malt at ed debevic's, and just meandering around downtown. on saturday night he surprised me with tickets to see the blue men group, an excellent production that's definitely worth seeing! i got to have my picture taken with one of them after the show. then on sunday morning before heading home, we were able to visit willow creek church. it was a fun weekend. what a nice surprise! i'll post an album below and a couple videos to the right of the screen under "my videos."
