Oh, Frank Sinatra makes Chicago sound like so much Fun!! Don’t shoot me but Chicago is not my Favorite place to hang out BUT my son loves it and lives there so being the GOOD mom I go and visit at least once a year, IN THE SUMMER LOL.

We are heading to Chicago this week. And my son,well,he is the trooper, he takes us all over the place!! We will do a baseball game, The Cubs!  We are gonna see a show at The Second City and do the Taste of Chicago festival!  Oh, and I love to go hang out at the lake, so my son indulges me and takes me down to the lake :)

Gee, talking about it,listening to Frank sing about it, well now I am getting all excited and PLUS I will be with my favorite people in the entire world.  My husband and two children, I really don’t care what city or place that happens in!!!!

Are you a fan of the City of Chicago?

P.S. My son even indulged me last year and we went to the Chicago History Museum!

    I can’t say I like or dislike Chicago. We’ve only drive through the south end of the Windy City on our way to St.Louis, MO in 2000. No more than I saw all I can say is that’s one big city! Enjoy your time. It sounds like it’s gonna be fun and like you said, you’re be with some of your favorite people in the whole wide world. ^.^

    I do not know if I ‘d like Chicago, but like you said, wherever your loved ones are, then it’s all good. Plus I’m sure they have nice spots. I don’t think I’d like to live there though.

    Thanks for the music :)

    Enjoy your time with your family.

    Unfortunately, I’ve never been to Chicago. I’d love to go one of these days, as I have online friends there that I would love to meet! And my Mom lived there once. (She didn’t much like it, either)

    One of these days I am going to plan a trip there around a music festival or soemthing!

    Well, my friend I was born & raised in Chicago, and right down the road from that ball park you’re going too. Bridgeport/Mayor Daley’s neighborhood. I now live about 45 minutes away from Chicago. I think Chicago is more of a cement jungle for me now because I live closer to the Fox River now and I love it out here. Being in Chicago all my life and the house are so close together nahhh that’s not for me anymore. I like my space and love your choice! None other than Frankie sings Chicago the best!

    I’ve only briefly been through Chicago….when I was about 12 or so and we were driving back home from Florida and my step dad wanted to come back through a more mid-western route (we did eastern on the way down.) Would love to visit now as a grown up who could truly appreciate the House of Blues!
    love me some ole blue eyes!

    I’m DEFINITELY jealous of you! I do love Chicago myself; it’s just one of those things living 2 hours away, it’s such a TREAT to go in with the girls and just live it up :)

    I totally forgot the taste was coming up! I’ve only been to it once, but I want to go back one day.

    I think your choice is very apropos for your upcoming trip! Even though you don’t like Chicago that much, I hope you have fun ^.^

    Have a musical week!

    The only time I’ve ever been to chicago it was because I had a three or four hour layover in O’Hare. That’s the biggest most confusing airport I’ve ever been in.

    I’ve never been to Chicago, but I don’t think I’d like it. I’m not really a big city kind-of girl. I hate NYC and even Jacksonville and Orlando down here where I live.
    The only cities that I’ve really liked being in were Boston (with my sister-in-law) and New Orleans (NEVER during Mardi Gras).
    However, I totally agree that wherever family is, it is perfect.
    Thanks for playing along and good luck with the giveaway.

    I’m pretending not to be offended that you don’t like Chicago. ha.

    What I’ve found is that when I travel to big cities, when I try to pack in all the touristy things into one trip, I tend to get overwhelmed, exhausted and can easily feel blah about a trip. I love balancing “seeing the sites” with exploring neighborhoods and doing things I’d do in my own home city. That includes staying in apartments, rather than hotels, and not staying IN the city center, rather I stay where the locals live. Hope you get a good balance while you’re here this week.

    My daughter has a stop over in Chicago next week when she heads on over to New Jersey to visit friends. I think on the way back home, she will be waiting six hours in the Chicago train station. She is going to just stay put, and wait it out.
