The husband (whoa!) and I took a whirlwind trip to Chicago a few days ago- drove in one day, spent one night, drove out the next. Not enough time to see everyone/do everything we wanted to do, but fun nonetheless. Of course, I only brought my crappy iphone camera.

In other news, my hair is dark teal now, and very hard to photograph accurately.
