Chicken In The Car And the Car Won’t Go: The Live Action Version & Giveaway!

Today is a very, very exciting day: one of my BFFs, Momofali, is coming to town with her daughter, let’s call her Daughterofmomo, for a girls’ weekend. I haven’t seen Momo since we were in New York City together for BlogHer last August, and I can barely contain myself regarding the fact that not only is she staying with me through Sunday, but I get to see her AGAIN in just a couple weeks, in San Diego (roomies!).

In preparation for their visit, I asked Momo to have her daughter go through my book and jot down various attractions that she really wanted to see. What they came up with, in addition to what I added to the list, resulted in quite an ambitious itinerary considering we have two days in which to conquer the city. (No surprise, if you know me: I tend to pack a day with activity like nobody you’ve ever seen before!)

I wonder if you can venture a guess as to how many Chicago attractions Momofali, Daughterofmomo, and I can hit this weekend. Wanna try? (Sure you do.)

Let’s have some fun with this, shall we? I will be picking up a few Chicago souvenirs this weekend that will make up a small prize pack for one “winner” (even though you’re all winners!). Here are two ways to enter:

1. Leave a comment with your guess. How many Chicago attractions can I drag Momo and her daughter to in one weekend?

2. Send out the following tweet:

“Giveaway! How many Chicago attractions can @melisalw & @momofali see in 1 weekend? http://bit.ly/qcNlAD #MelisaSkydeck”

(You’ll notice I’m killing two birds with one stone here, having you use my Skydeck Chicago hashtag and all…) Then, after you tweet, come back here and leave another comment with the tweet url.

The winner will be chosen randomly from all valid comments on Monday, July 11. Good luck!

(and Good Luck to us, too!)

    What fun! Having had the pleasure of touring Chicago with you during BlogHer 09 and remembering what a fast walker you are (heh and OUCH!) I’m guessing a cool dozen. Have fun!

    Oh my goodness. This is going to be fun! And, exhausting.

    I will guess 7. I am sure you and Momo could pack in 12 if motivated (by a cool margarita at the end), but since you with her daughter, I have to lessen the number. Have fun and give her a hug for me 🙂

    My guess is 14 and have a great time, I know you will really enjoy the weekend.

    I’m going to guess the unlucky, but super fun, 13 things. Sounds like an awesome time!

    My guess is eight. I hope you all have a great ‘Momo meets Chicago’ adventure.

    I’ll say 13, but that’s only if y’all stop for an extended lunch at Chez Quis 🙂

  • megryansmom July 9, 2011, 10:18 am

    I’m guessing 37, which is the combined birthdates of my grandbabies and also the age at which I was last at my ideal weight.

  • megryansmom July 9, 2011, 10:19 am

    and! I tweeted 🙂

    I was soooo excited I forgot the url http://twitter.com/#!/Megryansmom/status/89715093419462656

    It took me forever to figure out how to get the url for a single tweet but here it is:


    I can’t wait to see the final # if we’re all guessing too low. I’m scared for @Momofali.
