The weather took a little turn on Saturday, and suddenly Chicago became very foggy! This seemed a perfect day to take a bus tour and explore the city properly! We stopped off at Magnolia Bakery which is famous in New York, and I had the most incredible banana pudding! It was so yummy! On our way out of the mall we entered a competition to win tickets to see Wicked as well – but we will come back to this later. It was back onto the bus – Sophie wanted to sit on top which was a little cold!!
We decided to have lunch at the coolest place in Chicago – the Rainforest Cafe! Where the food is awesome and there are thunderstorms every 22 minutes! We were thoroughly fed after this, so headed to Macy’s to see the Christmas tree and relax a little.
At 6pm we headed back to the Mall to hear about the competition we had entered, and I am happy to tell you I WON!! TWO TICKETS TO SEE WICKED THAT NIGHT IN THE FRONT ROW!!!
I was over the moon, nothing like this ever happens to me! As Sophie and I had been singing along to Wicked the day before, I felt like she was the perfect choice to come with me. So at 8pm I was sitting in the front row, about to see the most amazing show of all time. And it did not disappoint…I may have gotten a little emotional when Defying Gravity came on.

I thought the first day in Chicago had been great, but this managed to top it!
