Sunday we woke up far too early, but managed to drag ourselves out of bed to have a gorgeous lunch at Gino's, an amazing pizza place where you can write on the walls and with the nicest pizza in the world (probably).
That afternoon we went to Navy Pier and took a lot of photos of the boats and the skyline as we walked up. We came back down through the fun shops and gardens, went on the carousel, ferris wheel and played miniature golf. I also got a very pretty tattoo of a swan on my wrist. Sadly it's just paint so it won't be there in a week, but I love it. If I didn't think it would hurt like hell I'd get it done properly.
After dinner we went to the cinema. ( Star Trek Spoilers )
On Monday we walked down to the The Bean and visited the art museum. It was a lovely relaxing morning and we saw a lot of fantastic paintings. The Bean was incredible and we got some good photos there. After lunch at the Rainforest Cafe (sat next to the elephants) we drove up to the TV studio where Fall Out Boy were going to perform. We sat outside with a great group of people and a fab security guard who thought Patrick looked like a Randy and couldn't be convinced that wasn't his name.
We got inside the studio at 6.30pm and because we'd being waiting so long, the floor manager let us stand up front. We were in the second row, right between Patrick and Pete. It was the closest I've ever been to them and truly one of the best things I've ever done. Patrick and Pete both smiled at me (shut up, they totally did) and Pete looked a lot happier than he did on Saturday (possibly because Ashlee was there with him). It was so cool to have them talking between the songs and while they changed the tapes. The whole experience was such fun, even though it does mean I will be on TV in July.
The taping finished at 9.30 and we drove up to Milwaukee.... More on that later.
