I got home at 1am. So much for sleeping on the plane.
Anyway, I was on my way home from a weekend in Iowa for my friend Annie's wedding. Several friends and I had flown into Chicago, spent some time there, and road-tripped to Iowa City for the weekend.
It was my first trip to the Windy City, and despite only spending 20 hours there (six of them asleep), it was a great little trip, complete with amazing food, a boat ride, and a hilarious show at The Second City.
