My Fantasy...

Last night Kody and I were watching something on TV...not sure what...and a commercial for Atlantis in the Bahamas came on on the screen. They have water slides, dolphin coves, sunshine and more. I look at Kody and declare, "I want to go there!" Thank you advertising agency of Atlantis. Kody remarks, "Before residency starts??" with a huge grin on his face. Well, no silly. Of course not. That requires money and planning and you can't just decide to go on vacation and go one month later...right?

WRONG!

OK, so I'm not planning a spur of the moment trip to Atlantis because it is uber expensive and I have to buy a new house, move and find a new job in the next three months. However, I started thinking that a spur of the moment trip to NYC, Washington D.C. or Chicago might be in order for me and the Mr.! All I need to do is find a flight and hotel and then we can just tour the city for a couple days! I would love to go to any three of those places, just the two of us! Take in a few shows on Broadway or stroll through the Smithsonian in D.C. or even go to a Cubs game in Chi town!

I don't know know if this will happen, but when I put my mind to something it gets done. I'm pretty sure I can talk Kody into doing anything as long as it has the word "vacation" in it. If you had to pick, where would you go? NYC, Chicago, or D.C.?

I saw that commercial, too. I told J he owes me a babymoon before residency begins, lol. Personally, if you're into history / patriotism / LOTS of walking, I recommend D.C. (my last trip, I walked 12 miles in one day - no joke). This is a great time to go while the weather is nice & before "tourist" season. Most stuff is free, but you have to get tickets the day of for the capitol / washington monument, & mint by waiting in line - it's much easier in the off season. Awesome smithsonian museums - all free, no tickets. If you love sightseeing / big city / fashion / TOYS R US / Broadway (and don't mind spending more) then NYC is the way to go! Either way you can't go wrong. Unfortunately, I've never done Chicago except for business, so I wasn't really impressed...

Never been to NYC but I think DC is way cooler than Chicago!!

oh dear. I am totally biased, having lived near DC almost all my life. Go to Chicago! I hear it's awesome. Not such a fan of DC. But like I said, I'm biased.

We went to NYC in September & really loved it. Michael & Katie went to Chicago the same month & they just got back from D.C. last night! My pick is NYC but I've never been to the other places! You should pick their brains about the others.
