I have had an amazing time in Chicago. It's a killer city and the weather right now is perfect. Not to mention, Melanie is a charming host. We spent an awkward amount of time quoting Friends, got manicures/pedicures (Essie's Fiji polish is out of hand good), ate great food (including fantastic cookies from here) and laughed a lot. We also kept up the "try new exercise classes" theme today and took a class at The Dailey Method.
I have been wanting to try this workout since I heard a friend from college was teaching it. She lives in Chicago and invited us to take her class this afternoon. It was intense. Similar to Bar in a lot of ways, but different enough that I know I'll be sore in the morning. Plus it was so fun to know the teacher. I'll be continuing with Bar Method once I am back in San Diego but I'm glad to have a new option up near Sacramento when I visit my parents.
So sweet! Early tomorrow morning we are flying to NYC, which at the moment, with Hurricane Irene crashing in, seems like a bad idea. We had lots of outdoor weekend plans that are going to be rained out, but we're excited regardless. As my friend Sara so eloquently emailed : "I don't care what we do!! I mean, one of the best times we've all had since college was the epic all day belaggio brunch, so whatevs."
