Mid-west Knottie G2G

So, Ely and I finally figured out our G2G. We are meeting in Chicago on February 18th. Anyone else want to join us? :)

    That would be awesome if all of you could make it!! I think we might be doing a double date type thing, bringing the guys. I'm not sure if plans for that have changed or not.

    Yup, I'm still planning on bringing the BF... We can send all the men to play in Nike Town or something while we all shop! ;)

    Ok - it's way more likely that the BF and I would go together and make a getaway weekend of it! Let me seriously think about this. I do get my bonus in February after all...and with Presiden't day that Monday it may be possible!

    I think we need to get Audgie to create a G2G sticky so that we can keep track of things like this all in one place.  That way if we do find a "slamming sale on flights" we can try to make it to meetings not in our area.

    I love this idea Elle! The only reason Becunning is making it to our Denver g2g is because she happens to be attending a conference here this weekend. It would be so nice to check the sticky when traveling to see if others will be in the same place! I love the idea of sharing flight sales and hotel deals too!!

    I'm guessing he's not going to be in for a shopping trip, lol. The only thing I remember is Shedd Aquarium and also there's a Medieval Times Theater there if anyone likes those. Other than that, I got nothing.
