I'm a happy RN married to a hardworking resident. We have recently become Carolina fans and are adding the color "carolina" blue to our wardrobe and home. I love the east coast and couldn't be happier living in hot, sticky climate. I was raised on a farm/ranch with two wonderful parents and three fun loving older sisters. I went to a one room country school house down the dusty dirt road with grand total of three in my class. Life in the country was rich, meaningful, and simple, just the way I like it. So from country farmgirl to coastal bell, here I am, living life and loving it!

This post is a little late but I wanted to share some pictures from our trip to Chicago.  Tim had the wonderful opportunity to present a poster at the ASA this year in Chicago, in case you are wondering the ASA is the American Society of Anesthesiologists!  All this medical professional jargon.  I am so proud of Tim and the hard work he puts in everyday as a resident.  He puts in some VERY long hours and works so hard to provide for our family of three!  I think you can explain to people all day long what is like working as doctor/resident and they will never understand the true sacrifice that doctors make everyday to keep everyone living and healthy.  Tim wakes up around 5 or 5:30 every morning for work and usually works at least 6 days a week, is on call at least one night a week which means he goes in at 6 in the morning and does not come home until 7 the next morning, he takes care of very sick and unhealthy people in some very hard cases, and never complains.  Ok so I am very proud of him, but I want to give a shout out to him because he deserves it.  He is an amazing worker, husband, and friend.  Just a little side note there!:) 

Right before we got on the plane!  He was such a sweet boy and good little traveler.

A little bit of Chicago

Our FAVORITE place we found to eat breakfast.  We ate here almost every morning.

A park which of course I can't remember the name.  That is why you blog right after your trip so you don't forget these things!

A cool "kidney shaped bean" thingy.

Where are we?  Yep Wildberry pancake restaurant.

The Museum of Life and Science.  A very COOL museum, so big and so many things to see.  And I love Museums so this was right up my ally! 

The outside of the museum, such a neat old building. 

Just another view of the beautiful city.

So this pictures is a little creepy because that white ghost thing got in every picture we took.  I was kind of annoyed,  because I wanted a good family photo, but oh well I guess.

Looking out to Lake Michigan from Navy Pier.

Navy Pier

Maybe someday I will get my bod back?!

I just loved all the old buildings and beautiful flowers. They had huge flower pots all over the city filled with mums, cabbage, kale, and so many more fall flowers and plants.  I was in love!

Yikes! Look at the crazy bridge!

My sweet boy

All bundled up.  Jonah loved the city!  He was perfectly happy in his stroller people watching and then would catch a few zzz's along the way!

The John Hancock Observatory.  We were on the 94th floor!  It was cool, but kinda scary!

Another view from the 94th floor!

On the way home Jonah sat with Irena and Kate, a couple of Tim's co-workers who are in love with him.  He is a ladies man I am afraid.  He smiled and flirted with them most the flight home.
And thats a wrap.  A all expense paid trip to Chicago, great food, and family fun, can't beat that!  See you next time.
