Min lille pige ... my little girl

Jeg kender at hun bliver en ung kvinde... og i dag jeg indså netop hvor meget hurtig tid er flyvende! Efter jeg købte vores billeter til Chicago, planlagde jeg en tur af Northwestern University under vores tid her. Det kunne være ligesom vores egen personlig episode af Gilmore Girls!

I know that she is becoming a young woman...and today I realized just how fast tid is flying! After I bought our tickets to Chicago, I booked a tour of Northwestern University during our time here. It could be our own personal episode of Gilmore Girls!

Så i går, kørte til Northwestern! Og selvfølgelig, Jess var lidt flov fordi jeg tog billeder den hele tid!! LOL

So yesterday, we headed to Northwestern! And of course, Jess was a little embarrassed because I took pics the whole time! LOL

Efter hun spiste i den "Student Union" hvor alle den "store børn" spiser!
After she ate in the "Student Union" where all the "big kids" eat!



Jess skal ikke flytte til Chicago på universitie fordi hun vælger en universitie i Texas, men det var endelig en sjov oplevelse!

Jess is not going to Chicago for college because she is choosing a school in Texas, but it was definitely a fun experience!


Sidst aften havde vi aftensmad i vores favorit restaurant i verden...The Grand Lux i Chicago. Vi opdagede The Grand Lux i Chicago sammen mange år siden, før det kom til Texas, og nu, hver tid vi kommer til Chicago, planlægger vi en aftensmad der. Sædvanligvis vi prøver at spiser sundhed mad, men min svigerfar gav os penge for en dejlig aftensmad "på ham", så havde vi vores FAVORITE DISHES, inklusive DESSERT!

Last night we had dinner in our favorite restaurant in the world...The Grand Lux in Chicago. We discovered the Grand Lux together many years ago, before it even came to Texas, and now, every time we come to Chicago, we plan a dinner there. Usually we try to eat healthy, but my father-in-law gave us money for a nice dinner "on him", so we had our FAVORITE DISHES, including DESSERT!



Peach Bellini...Jeg savner frossen drikker i Danmark!
Peach Bellini...I miss frozen drinks in Denmark!


Kylling quesadillas uden kylling...min Højste FAVORIT!
Chicken quesadillas without chicken...my ULTIMATE FAVORITE!


og "MOLTEN CHOKALADE KAGE"
and MOLTEN CHOCOLATE CAKE



Og nu, i dag... Vi indkøb Michigan Avenue!
And now, today...We shop Michigan Avenue!

Isn't that Northwestern campus just absolutely GORGEOUS?

Sure wish I could have gone there back in 1970.

Hey, at least you're Gilmoring the Lorelai/Rory visit to Harvard and not the Richard/Emily/Lorelai Rory visit to Yale where Rory gets shanghaied into an interview with the dean.

And those quesadillas look like Jackson Pollock made them!!

Miss you.............

Beautiful pictures from Northwestern. Awww, I ate there last time I was in Chicago. You are making my mouth water for yummy chocolate molten cake. I'll have to try and make some in DK.

Yeah...I get the Gilmore Girl reference now....I feel so much like I'm on the inside loop now! Did you make her go into a random girl's dorm room and sit at the desk?
