I love Chicago.  I do.  I know there are a lot of people not on board with that statement, but I don't care.  I love it!  Everytime Zac and I go we have fun together and is worth the cost of a hotel always.  Our anniversary trip was great.  We got in late on Friday night and headed first to Zac's favorite pizza place, Lou Malnati's for some deep dish pizza.  It was super delicious.  Always is!  To make things even better, our waitress gave our pizza to a different couple and we had to wait a little longer, but they gave us our pizza free for the mistake.  It was awesome.  Just look at that pizza, and they really do look like that at the restaurant, not just in advertisements.  I know that makes you hungry!

We went from Malnati's to our hotel.  Priceline hooks us up everytime and we got to stay at the Palmer House for supercheap.  We were pumped!  They gave us a king room instead of a room with two double beds and charged us nothing for the switch in reservation.  We also got a corner room, so we had views of the city on both sides from the 19th floor and the room was huge.
Our second day there we first stopped at a record store cause we can't go anywhere without searching for great old vinyls.  It's one of Zac's new favorite things.  Shockingly enough, it was 2 blocks away from the hotel.  After that we jumped on the train and headed over to meet my friend Megan for lunch at a delicious tapas place.  It's called Cafe Ba Ba Reeba and it was also great.  It was in a trendy part of town so we walked and wandered and window shopped for a while before heading back to take a nap at the hotel.  Unfortunately, we realized about 3 hours before our dinner reservation that the place was "business casual" attire and we had jeans.  So we were off again.  The hotel sits right on State Streets and there is tons of shopping.  There was Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Old Navy, a thousand different shoe stores.  We found new outfits for ourselves in a little over an hour then had some down time before dinner.  We decided to do something special, so we had reservations at Mortons (it had great reviews).  It was wonderful!  The food was amazing, the service was great.  We would recommend it a thousand times.  This is Zac looking too cute before our dinner.

The next day we packed up and headed out.  Took us three tries to find the entrance to our parking garage, but we finally figured it out.  We got home early enough we still had some time to hang out before bed.  It was a  great trip.  Zac even says we should do it every year.  About that I'm not sure, but for 5 years, it was totally worth it!
