See Mom Run: Chicago

Powered by Whrrl

The jet lag is beginning to set in and I still have a gazillion videos to edit, but in the meantime, I've got a great photo montage of my visit to the windy city. I literally blew into Chi-town at the crack of dawn and hit the ground running. From WGN-TV, to Eli's Cheesecake Factory, to 1-800 Baskets, a shopping diversion at the 1-800 Baskets warehouse (OMG, the deals we found), the Chicago Board of Trade, a narrated city tour by Nancy Loo, mad dash to Garrett's popcorn for some off the hook kernels and finally, our event at Comedy Sportz Theatre sponsored by Allstate's Vehicle Vibes, Dominicks and Safeway Stores and Whimsical Jewelry Designs. Over the course of the next few hours we were running all over town and enjoyed every minute of it.

I've been busy editing videos from our visit and we'll also have a more professional version available soon from our fabulous cameraman Ben, but in the meantime, check out the behind the scenes tour of Eli's Cheesecake factory.

Now that you're hungry, why not do a little holiday shopping? Check out our insider tour of the 1-800 Baskets factory. Amazing food, wine, fruits, gorgeous baskets? And we even got to shop their once a year warehouse sale for friends and family...good thing we're officially a friend!!!

Next stop...the Chicago Board of Trade, where Fox TV anchor Nancy Loo and I discovered that if you have a kid with a messy streak, he may have a future in the finance industry.
