Chicago Survey Trip - 2007
We flew in to Chicago on Friday Night. We got a SWEET rental car, a Nissan , Morano - AWD :o) We are loving it! Friday and Saturday night we stayed with some friends of Jamie and Stacie Potts. They were really very helpful!
Saturday, the 17th , we went into Deerfield to see the Tinity International University. We met Jeremy and Sarah Brown who drove out for the " Taste of Trinity" Days.
** After lunch, Tim and I drove around until about 5pm Apartment searching in the Deerfield and surrounding areas.
Lastly, we went into the city of Chicago, and walked around on the city on Rush street and Milwaukee Ave.
** We went to dinner at the "Grande Lux Cafe"- It was amazing! We ate dinner in the second floor rotunda, overlooking the city. It was gorgeous! I had a signature shrimp scampi and Tim had a shrimp, chicken, and rice meal. It was so fabulous! I don't have pics, because the camera ran out of batteries, but here is the website if you want to see what it was like :o) Click here on www.grandluxcafe.com
Following will be some apartments that we looked at in the area. I will be specifically posting these for family, and friends who are interested :o)
This one is my favorite so far... a bit pricey, but they all are in Chicagoland! It has one bedroom with a nook for Tim's office. It's very spacious and nice looking!
Very much like a hotel entrance and lobby and hallways.
laundary facilities on second and third floors
There is the nook for Tim's office :o)
You can't see it, but we can fit a small table over in the right of the kitchen
The sink is outside of the bathroom .
Hope you enjoyed! Let me know what you think! Tomorrow is job hunting. I have put together my portfolio and I am dropping it off and meeting with administrators all day tomorrw :o) Pray all goes well!
See you all VA Beachers soon!
Here are some fun pics of tim and I at lake michigan :o)
