I'm Going to See OPRAH!


Hello faithful blog readers, all 3 of you ;) Big news around here, I am going to Chicago to see Oprah at the end of October! My friend Kerry told me about the ticket lottery (she won tickets for September and got to go too). So my mom, Michelle (moms best friend), Brittney (one of my best friends, and Michelle's daughter) and myself all put our names in the ticket lottery. Low and behold, Brittney actually got tickets! The rest of us got polite emails telling us our names had not been selected :) You get 4 tickets, so the 4 of us are headed to Chicago. Our show tapes on October 22. We are headed up on the 21st and plan to come home on the 24th. Mom also is treating us all to a performance of Jersey Boys while we are there. It is supposed to be one of the best shows on Broadway right now, and she got us great seats. I have never been to Chicago, so I am looking forward to doing some shopping and eating at great restaurants. Any must see places we have to go?? Let the countdown begin!

Must see? Yes, Forever 21 & H&M. Ha! Emily told me to eat at Giordano's and it was good. :)

I'm gonna have to try that restaurant next time - b/c I'm definitely going back! Loved Chicago.

So fun! Chicago is a great city- you'll have a ball. Do you get to see one taping or two? I know at one time she would tape two shows a day so you actually got to see two shows.
