On Christkindlmarket...a Winter to-do

Is it technically winter yet? I mean its snowing so I am just going to say yes. I wanted to share one of the many things I love to do in the winter here in Chicago.

The Christkindlmarket! 
Wondering what the heck it is?
It is an outdoor market with international (mainly European) items and foods. They sell yummy foods like brats, crepes, potato pancakes, nuts and drinks like spiced wine, hot cider, and beer. 
They sell commemorative mugs that you can buy with your wine and they are often shaped like a boot (I used to have a collection, till I lost them in the custody battle)  
They were using regular mugs for a few years but they brought back the mug this year!! 

The Boyfriend and I joined my the chef and her boyfriend and walked around. I, of course, had to have a potato pancake that I had to eat super fast before it froze. I had a some wine in my boot cup because...why not? and we shared some nuts. I didn't buy anything this time since I plan to go back with another friend before it ends. 

I feel like someone has a cuter picture of me and that mug?! 

Told you guys I would finally take more pics now that I have a fancy phone! 
I wont tell you guys we went back twice for him to have more fried cheese...

My friend the chef! 

Usually the tree is there in Daley plaza but this year they moved it so we walked over to check it out in Milennium park. 

Its so pretty in all its giant lightbulby glory!

LOOK AT HIS BEAUTIFUL HAWKEYE HAT! I love the mart, I'm going tomorrow. At 11 a.m. because that's the acceptable time to start drinking German beer on a Friday morning, yes indeed.
