Chicago-lovin’

This past week I spent a few days in Chicago for work.  I actually enjoy going to Chicago because I think it’s a fantastic city – and if you get to explore the town on the company-dime…even better!

Unfortunately, this recent trip I was riddled with the cough of death – which led to absolute sleep deprivation.  So even though outside was a good 80+ degrees and amazing sunny weather, I was in my hotel room either working or trying to sleep and eventually giving up and doing more work.

But…this trip was still a success!  Here are three awesome things from my Chicago trip:

1. Stumbling upon Coconut Twix at the nearby drugstore

Hello lover!  Yeah, Twix is my FAVORITE candy bar and this just happens to be a new flavor.  It’s really tasty.  And, it’s not available everywhere yet (I’ve looked).  Booooo!

2. A super awesome M&M wall dispenser

This thing is so cool (it happened to be hanging on the wall at the focus group facility I happened to be doing work at).  It lays flat against the wall, but turn the crank and pull the lid open a little bit, and plop, plop, plop – out come the goodies!  I was very entertained by this – and in sugar shock by the end of the night Smile

3. Delectable lunch at Wow Bao

Wow Bao is an AWESOME chain (only found in Chicago) that has these AMAZING (and super cute) steamed bao aka bun that comes with delicious meat filling.  They are soft and pillowy, and…yum, yum, yum.  A location just happened to be right across from my hotel.  It was meant to be. (This is my second time to Wow Bao as my first time was with a trip with Micah and Tera – we were on a mission to find this place!!)

If it weren’t for the blistering cold, bitterly awful winters – I’d totally want to move to Chicago.  Who wouldn’t with all this awesome stuff they have there!!?
