A Christmas Surprise!

So my wonderful over the top boyfriend had told me to clear my schedule for Saturday, December 20th because he had put together a surprise evening for me! Leading up to this day I guessed constantly what we would be doing because those who know me know I love guessing what something is. I guessed everything under the sun secretly hoping we were going to the Celine Dion concert because I knew she was in town around that time but didn't know exactly when, lucky for him that was not the surprise because he would for sure have jumped out the window.

On the 20th I went to my kickboxing class, came home and was told to pack my bag because we were staying downtown at the Intercontinental Hotel on Michigan Avenue, having lunch at Bandero (which is the best place ever!) then going to a nice dinner and to the play "A Christmas Carol" at the Goodman Theater! Funny enough a few weeks prior we had been behind a CTA bus in traffic and there was a Christmas Carol ad for the play on the back of the bus and I turned to him and said "OH! Are we going to that play?" at the time he told me no and to please for the love of god stop guessing.
The whole day was wonderful!!!! The dinner was awesome and oddly enough I ran into an EBC friend and her boyfriend at dinner and they were going to the same play and sat across the aisle from us! The play was SOOOOOO good! Afterward we had a few drinks and then were back to the hotel. VERY nice hotel and decked out in all Christmas in the lobby! A pic below of us in front of the Christmas tree in the lobby before we left to go to dinner.
