Monday morning I was driving past DPA in West Chicago, Il and first saw the DirectTV blimp tied down and then I thought I saw a B737 parked near the main building there. After I dropped my grandmother off I backtracked to DPA to get a closer look and sure enough, it was a B737, a BBJ registered N888TY which I later found out is owned by the toy company TY, which makes the Beanie Babies. I know they are based in Chicago, but I have never seen this aircraft here before. It was impressive looking and impressive to see a B737 at DPA in real life, last one I saw there was in the default traffic in FS2004. Do they usually keep the aircraft there or elsewhere like MDW or GYY?

I wish I could have seen it land and take off

I have to say that this a/c has a very nice paint job:

Unfortunately, this a/c is blocked from the flight tracking sites, so it's a bit harder to track its' movements.
