Where I was - and where I am going...

Went to McCords for lunch for the past view Fridays. It is a 50's candy store and diner downtown Lafayette. They even have an old fashioned soda fountain. And on Christmas time it turns into a magical place. You can find the best peppermint bark there.

We are going to Chicago tomorrow, one of our favorite cities. So much to see and do there. Will be stopping at Lincoln Square, Chinatown, and of course I have to stop at Ikea. Too bad, we don't have an Ikea in Indiana.

I love Yvonne's blog!

Enjoy your weekend!

What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer,
 the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months,
 and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

  1. Heidi, I hope you have a fabulous trip Chicago. It is also one of my favorite cities. I love the Art Institue. I must say we are fading a bit here in the mid south. Have a wonderful trip. I know you will be sharing some great photos with us. Bonnie

  2. I wish we had a candy store like that!

  3. Ein toller Laden. So etwas gibt es hier kaum mehr zu sehen. Ich war noch nie in Amerika deshalb freue ich mich auf Fotos von Chicago liebes Heidi.

    Gute Reise und herzliche Grüsse aus der Schweiz

    One of my favorite things to do is eat at quaint little 50's diners. There's something so special about them. I hope you have fun in Chicago.
