Pink Luggage Set & Another Chicago Trip

This week surely went fast. I am going home tomorrow. And I am so tired from shopping. Did you ever think I would ever get tired shopping? LOL! My 72 year old sister outlasts me for sure. I cannot believe her energy, she never gets tired. Anyway, for Sightseeing Saturday, I will show you a little bit of my trip to Chicago.


I am linking with Laurie to show you a few of my favorite things at

Go visit them to see more.



Can you imagine how much I bought? I am sure you will after you see my new favorite set and it's pink! We shopped everyday I was here. Boy! Will John be surprised to see me leave with 1 checked in luggage and 1 hand carry and then come back with 4 check ins and 2 hand carries with 2 more luggage and a tote packed inside the 2 big luggage? LOL!


And here's my new favorite! I bought 2 full size pink luggage, 1 slightly smaller and another even smaller, and a tote, so it was a set of 5 bags altogether. You know we are only allowed 2 free checked in luggage with Southwest so I had to put the others inside the bigger ones.


That "lightweight" sticker outside sold me to them. If you are a traveler, I am sure you would understand.




I took pictures while flying before landing to Milwaukee. Isn't that a gorgeous sunset? It rained in Orlando as soon as we boarded so we sat inside the plane for 2 hours waiting for the rain to stop before we took off. I did not mind that at all because I was relaxed just playing Scrabble on my i Phone while waiting, unlike my trip to California when I was sweating and trembling while running between gates in the airport, to catch my flight and still was left behind.



We used to live here in Illinois when the kids were small. They were all born in this area. My baby Angelino was buried here so naturally, the first thing I wanted to do was visit him.




We visited some friends. That's my sister and my 92 year old mom.



This is in our friend's neighborhood. I had to let my sister stop the car so I could get out and take pictures. It looked so pretty and relaxing.




My mom at 92 still plays mahjong and she loves doing it so we played for hours. We went to Chicago the next day.
Summer is always a fun time to come here, it is much cooler that where I came from. John said it was 104 degrees when I called him.





The lamp posts with the hanging planters downtown Chicago are so pretty.






I just love the old buildings there.




We saw the Millenium Park.


I had to attend to some official business at the Philippine Embassy.








And then we went to Macy's to shop till we dropped.



That's the story of my trip to Chicago. I am almost all packed and ready to go home now. I hope you all have a nice weekend. Thanks for coming by and thanks to our gracious hostesses for hosting these fun memes.
