Although Chicago gave me a run for my money. Ugh. DED.

So Friday morning, the family left our driveway at 9:00 to head out to the LP of Michigan for a wedding. It was fun. So much family togetherness.

That and getting stuck in Chicago traffic! Because that was REALLY FUN!!!! Both Friday and today, we were stuck in Chicago traffic for over two hours. Downtown Chicago was ridiculous. Friday I spent a lot of my time pointing out expensive cars. "BMW.... Mercedes Benz.... another BMW ...." and don't forget "HOLY SHIT A LAMBO!!" Today I saw a vintage Rolls Royce near the Wisconsin-Illinois border. We were complaining that this Bug was going like... 55 in a 65 zone. Then when we passed it, we noticed the Royce in front of the Bug.

HOLY SHIT THAT'S A PRETTY CAR.

Getting there was an adventure and a huge rush after we got out of Chicagoland. (Chicagoland when driving is Gurnee, IL to Gary, IN) The wedding started at 6:00 and we got to the hotel at 5:05 since we lost an hour switching time zones. So fun getting ready, I had zero time doing my hair since I spent most of my time doing my makeup and getting my face degrossified from traveling all day.

ANYWAY. The wedding: It was cool and weird.

Cutest guy:
Looked like Tom Felton. SERIOUSLY LOOKED LIKE TOM FELTON WHEN I FIRST GLANCED HIS WAY. I HAD TO DO A DOUBLE TAKE. I called him "Draco Malfoy Manip" in my head all night. Which made me laugh. I kind of wanted him to dance with me, but he had a girlfriend. First wedding in a looooooong time that some random guy didn't ask me to dance. I'm losing my touch!

Interesting point: We spent more time on the road than we did conscious at the wedding venue city. Whoo-hoo!

Also, listening to Sufjan Steven's song "Chicago" in Chicago is very gratifying. I would suggest doing it if ever traveling through Chicago.

Also Mark 2, I'm looking into studying at the AI in Chicago since I've heard from several people that the job market for my area is very tough and one girl I know couldn't get her required internship. I'm gonna try to get my Bachelor's degree and be super awesome.
