Wow guys. Life is crazy right now, but I wanted to give you an update on what I’m up to!


One thing you probably know about me: I’m crazy into baseball. I’m a diehard Giants fan. A couple of weeks ago when I realized there was a possibility of the Giants playing in Chicago, I decided that if we made it that far I would go. I also realized with the timing of the wildcard game, I’d have less than 2 days notice. I didn’t mention anything on the blog because I’m also really superstitious. I was not willing to jinx that. I bought a hat today to wear; I wasn’t willing to get it before Wednesday because I didn’t want to jinx anything!

The game was really stressful. Apparently the luckiest position was curled up in the fetal position, with my hand on Yoyo. Oh, the things we do for baseball.


^Yoyo during the game. Exactly NOT how I was feeling. So many nerves.

And then we won! OMG. I immediately went online to try to buy tickets, and they were selling out while I bought them! I feel like this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Giants in the playoffs. Tickets in SF are crazy expensive! Plus, this is my year without crazy commitments. I can drop everything for a few days and drive to Chicago.


I put some measures in place to make this possible before Wednesday (got work off Friday, got a spin sub) but it’s still quite the whirlwind.


I’m figuring out what to do, what to eat, what to wear.


On top of that, I found out I’m going to need to take another trip out of town in a few weeks. Again, WHIRLWIND.


The next few weeks will be crazy, but hopefully totally worth it.

What should I do/see/eat in Chicago?
