There comes a time when every girl needs to live her princess dream. While Diana and I had not been traveling for an extended period of time, it had been over two years since Shaun or I had been in anything remotely resembling the lap of luxury. We were on super budget mode during our trip through Central and South America and didn’t spend any money on pampering or nice hotels. Hell, we were stoked just to have air conditioning in some of our hostels.
We were tired. We were cranky. We felt gross. After driving from Keystone, Colorado and through Omaha, Nebraska, we arrived at the gloriousness of the Chicago Hyatt Regency. We had been through the cornfields and rolling hills of America and drove smack dab into the middle of modern civilization.
Oh how I love you Chicago.
And while we had hoped to walk around a bit, Diana and I did what we needed most:
Had a girls evening out – we are Winos of the Road!
And recovered from our long road trip in our lovely hotel room with a PHENOMENAL VIEW.
There is nothing in the world like returning to an ice cold room, taking a hot shower, and wrapping yourself up in a comforter burrito after stuffing your face with amazing food and loving every moment of it.
Lets just say we conked out quite quickly and took even longer to get up in the morning.
It was a good night/day.
