Today began our Oprah adventure! My mom, Janet (our family friend) and I left Minneapolis at 10am and finally arrived in Chicago at 7pm. That did include a few pit stops, lunch, and a huge traffic jam. Sadly the hotel ‘The Crowne Plaza’ is not as nice as one would expect from the webpage or the expensive prices, plus it cost $36 a day to park the car! Tomorrow is Oprah Wednesday and we have to be at the studio at 7am!
