How I Spent My New Years Eve
We did our own self guided and much researched John Hughes tour which included the Curly Sue school.
The school used in Sixteen Candles and Weird Science exterior shots.
A visit wouldn't be complete without seeing the McAlister home from Home Alone!
Or seeing Cameron's dad's garage from Ferris Bueller.
Or relaxing on the bench where Cameron had his freak out after getting the Ferrari back.
Paying our respects to the man who gave us such great movies.
Heading to Millenium Park.
Thankfully the rain kept people away from the Bean/ Cloud gate.
I HATED standing on the ledge the hangs out from the side of the building. Took my pic and left!
We went on a fireworks cruise that opened up last minute to ring in the new year. It was amazing and amazingly cold! (Sorry it's blurry, we're on a boat, yo)
Bought my purse at Bloomingdales, it only took 2 years to find one I like!
I LOVED seeing snow our last day coating the Christmas greens!
I'm going to miss seeing the festive decor and beautiful architecture!
I share the same sentiments Chicago Theater!
I wish you all a wonderful 2012 and will have some Chicago oriented posts this week. Right now I'm just plain pooped and am hitting the hay! We never celebrate but this year we are SO glad we did!
How did you ring in the new year?
