It’s Cold in Chicago

I have been stuck in the house for the past 4 days and started to come down with a little bit of cabin fever. If you haven’t heard, the city of Chicago was in the grip of the polar vortex. Temperatures reached lows of -20 degrees with windchills of -50 degrees. As of today the vortex has passed and it’s a balmy 20 degrees out.

Since I was basically stuck in my apartment for most of the week, I decided that I was going to be super productive with my travel plans.

  • I managed to book a hotel for my friends wedding in October (I will definitely write about getting a Ritz Carlton reservations to show up on my Marriott account)
  • I booked a trip for my birthday
  • I managed to fulfill one of my financial New Years resolution and earned some ultimate rewards points in the process
  • I made some headway on booking a trip to Germany for my parents

I’m actually anxious to share these experiences our the next couple of day. Until then stay warm.
