Riding the Rails to Chicago...


Last weekend,Becky and I took the train from Kansas City to Chicago to attend the Renegade Craft Fair! Becky and I became pals via our blogs a couple of years ago and then met up when Poot and I went to Florida on vacation. We instantly became friends and pretty much talk everyday:) She is seriously one of the sweetest gals I know and I soooo wish we lived closer!!


Neither of us had ever traveled by train, so we really didn't know what to expect. Well....we LOVED it and can't wait to do it again next year!! We spent almost 19 hours total traveling and talked/crocheted non-stop!!


Renegade was awesome and we meet so many talented artists and shopped until we literally couldn't shop anymore!!



My favorite thing I came home with was this beautiful necklace from Yellow Grey. It is made from sea urchins!!


Before we headed home on Sunday we did some shopping on Michigan Avenue and saw The Bean!!





We were stoked when we saw we would be traveling home on a double decker train that had a viewing cart and a dining cart! We arrived back to Kansas City in style!!




Hands down this was the best girls trip ever!!! I can't wait to visit Becky soon...because I already miss her!!
XOXO
