This trip all started with a random text, wondering if I was free the weekend of June 4. Sure enough â€“ I am â€“ where are we going? Chicago, my friend Trisha is going up to visit a friend and go to a New Kids on the Block concert, and had an extra ticket. Now, do I like New Kids on the Block? I donâ€™t really know â€“ I wasnâ€™t allowed to listen to their music as a kid (in fact, at 27, the thought still crossed my mind as to NOT telling my mom where I was going). But, Iâ€™m always up for a trip, practically no matter where it is or what weâ€™re doing.
The plan is for me and Trisha to drive up Friday and have the afternoon to ourselves since Christen has to work. Weâ€™ll go to the concert Friday night, check out some of the Chicago neighborhoods Saturday, experience Chicago nightlife, hit a breakfast spot on Sunday, then head home.
Iâ€™m really looking forward to this trip. Itâ€™ll be the first time Trish and I have ever traveled together, even though weâ€™ve always compared travel stories and adventures, and I have high hopes that we can pull this off.
