My second work trip is complete. I left last Thursday to go to the Chicago Ski Ball- a fundraiser in Chicago to raise money for the U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding. I worked with Katie to take photos of the event and at a “photo booth” where event guests could pose like they won an event. The event went very well- I spent Thursday traveling and doing a primary setup of the supplies we needed for the event on Friday. On Friday (the day of the event), I ran errands around downtown Chicago printing out event programs and signage for the event. Later in the afternoon, I set up the “photo booth” and got dressed up in less than 15 minutes.
After the work part of the weekend, Hayden picked me up at the hotel and I stayed with her and Guy for Saturday and Sunday. She currently lives in Palatine, a suburb of Chicago. It was so relaxing staying with her, you realize how you can do anything with your best friends and still have the best time. We baked cookies, carved pumpkins, watched Gopher football, went to IKEA, went out for dinner and watched a movie. What a good weekend!
