Well, we're taking a road trip to Chicago! Not entirely excited about the 12 hour drive, but definitely looking forward to some Chicago time with my sister-in-law and her family. We don't get to see our nephews often (haven't even met the newest one yet!), but when we do, it's always a great time.
If you're from the Chicago area and have some suggestions of things we should see, leave me a comment, I like tips from insiders :) We only have really one day to spend IN the city, but I don't think we have actually planned anything yet...just going with the flow. And I've already had the Oprah suggestion be shot down by my husband. Bummer.
Books for the car ride are always an interesting discussion topic. I've picked a few different ones, not too many, because I'm really attempting to not over pack, but 4 longer ones that will keep me busy. So far, I'm bringing:
The Dead Tossed Waves, a birthday present to myself that I still haven't picked up...trying to make it last longer!
The Truth About Forever-a Sarah Dessen book I still haven't gotten to. Bad Amanda, bad!
For Keeps by Natasha Friend- an ARC I've been wanting to get to
My Boyfriends' Dogs by Dandi Daley Mackell-another ARC I need to get to
Will I read them all? Probably not. 12 hours is a long time in the car each way, but I'll be helping drive and we have the audiobooks of all the Percy Jackson books to listen to (yay for finally convincing my husband to give them a shot) and once we're actually in Illinois we probably won't be having a whole lot of quiet time.
We'll be gone tomorrow through Monday, but I have posts setup for the weekend. Have a good one!! Chat with you all when I get back :)
