I'm a traveling gal... Part 2

Back to my adventures in the 'burbs of Chicago... but before I continue, I must show you the rental car I wound up with.

Yes, that's a rental car, the car that would be referred to as the "pimped out PT Cruiser!"

Wednesday, June 28th--More training. Lunch in the cafeteria. Here's the view outside the cafeteria at the office.

That night we went to Tuscany, a great italian restaurant in Wheeling. Look at the yummy desserts we had!

Tiramisu and White Chocolate Mousse Cake (l. to r.)

Later that night a wicked storm, which included hail, moved through the area. I've never seen hail before.

Thursday, June 29th--All training. No pictures.

Friday, June 30th--We got done with our final meetings early, saw another deer outside the office, had authentic Chicago deep-dish pizza for lunch, and since we had quite a bit of time before our scheduled flights (and the possible earlier flights were sold out) we decided to take a little road trip...

Why Wisconsin? Because it was there (and only 30 miles north of the office). Got off the interstate at the first exit in Wisonsin and would up at an outlet mall. Did a little shopping and then headed south for the airports. Dropped my coworker off at O'Hare, and then continued on to Midway for my flight. Traffic was unbelievably heavy, so I had plenty of time to look at the Chicago skyline.

From Midway I flew back to Hartford and went home to my sweetheart! And we got to watch the town's July 4th fireworks display--my first of what I hope with be many.

Forgive me for being so late, but I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
