The Long Awaited Trip

It's been a few weeks since I have been on here. Sorry for ignoring you guys! Anyway, we got back from Illinois about a week ago. The trip was a lot of fun! The talent part didn't go as well as I hoped, but I won't get into that.

My favorite part of the trip was on Wednesday. We spent the whole day shopping in Chicago, which was AWESOME!!! We went to a bunch of stores. Puma, Apple, Disney, Lego, and of course, American Girl. But before I tell you what I got there, let's start at the beginning.

We left for the trip at about 6:30am. We stopped a few times to stretch our legs, and eat lunch, so we didn't get there until about 10:00am (11:00est) We went to our apartment first, to unpack our stuff. The apartment is amazing! It is right down town Chicago! I wish we lived there all year long!

This is a picture of the bedroom my brother and I shared. (My bed is the one with the junk on it)

And this is right outside my window. :) Awesome, isn't it?

Their is a lot more the the apartment than just the one bedroom. Their is a master bedroom, three bathrooms, a kitchen, and a living room. So we all had a little space. :)

So, after getting unpacked, we started shopping! We first went to American Girl. This was my fifth time going to an American Girl Place. It was really nice this time because it was empty, since we went on a school day. There was probably a total of 20 people in that store. And that's counting employees!

The mall that American Girl is in was very smart to put it right next to a Lego store. My brother's and dad we entertained the whole time my mom and I shopped!

I still had no idea which doll I wanted. I walked through the whole store about three times. I finally narrowed it down to two...Kit, and Josefina. 

I loved Kit! She is one of those that it seems everyone has. Many of my friends were surprised to learn that I didn't have Kit. The reason I always turned her down, was because of her hair. It is very cute, but I like to style hair, and with really short hair, it is hard to do that.

Josefina was my other choice. I always thought she was cute, but I heard that her hair gets frizzy, and like I said, I want to be able to style the hair. 

It was a very hard choice but I finally decided. I was getting......Both!

I know, I know. I sound spoiled. When I can't decided, I get them both. But I will let you know that the ONLY reason I got both was because my mom loved Kit. She would not let me get two doll if I didn't get Kit. So, that made the decision easier. Also, I DO have to pay for both dolls. I am not getting them for free. I have to work for the dolls. And all my allowance for the next few months are going to pay them off. I really only have to pay one off, because I had the money for one doll when we went on the trip.

Anyway, I am very happy with my decision. And to my pleasure, Kit's hair is very fun to play with, and Josefina's hair isn't frizzy! (Yet)

Anyway, that was the hilight of my trip. I also got to hold the world's largest Hershey Bar. $40.00 and 12,000 calories worth of the best chocolate ever. :)

So...that was the long awaited trip to Chicago. I can't wait to go back! Hopefully next year we will do the same thing again.

Have you ever been to Chicago? What was your favorite attraction? 

Thank you all for reading!

Kit and Josefina are adorable! :) I've been to Chicago twice, and my absolute favorite part, I have to say I'm a little biased to, is American Girl. :)
