But first, I wanted to show you all these super cute Japanese lucky dolls that my mom bought me for my birthday. I saw a couple of these while in China Town but they didn't have this particular design and colors. My mom bought these in a little store that specialized in Oriental goods at Gurnee Mills in Gurnee, IL. We stopped at this outlet mall before we came back home. The big one was around $7 and the smaller one was around $4.

Then my mom also bought me a bamboo poster with a beautiful hand stitched Thai lady on it. This was $19.99 at the same store. I hung this up next to my ClosetMaid.
And now, here are some sightseeing pictures that I took while I was in Chicago.

We had such a great time. I would love to go again. I love the hustle and bustle of the big city-and all of the city lights. Next time though, more shopping and less sight seeing. lol.
