Whirl Wind Recap

I am coming off of one of the best weekends I have had in a long time. Non stop fun, lots of visits with old and new friends, and many many laughs.

We arrived in Chicago late Friday morning, checked into our hotel, met up with our friends for lunch, did a little shopping, then I was off. I got a chance to spend a couple of hours with Heather on Friday and celebrate her birthday. Heather and I actually met because of our blogs, but I knew from the first time she left me a comment that we would have to meet in person and that we would be great friends!
I got back to the hotel, did a quick outfit change then it was time to celebrate another birthday with this fabulous group of friends. Steak dinner at Joe's...
then off to the bars.... we travel in style

late night cocktails at the rooftop bar at the The Witt Hotel.

One last time together Saturday morning.

After a late brunch it was time to head home, we had friends coming into town and a party to throw. We made it home by 4 with not much time to spare, the shower started at 7....and at 3 am we were still going strong having a "dance off" in my family room.

My sweet friend Katie, and my roommate years ago when I moved back to St. Louis, came to town for the shower. Katie and her family spent the night Saturday, we joked it was like the good old days when we were roommates. I am so sad I did not take many pictures Saturday night, that wine can be so distracting!!

My weekend was good times with good friends, but I am still paying the price today!!

  5. It was soooo good to see you! I'm glad the rest of your weekend was fun. I was worried you'd have problems with your flight being delayed.

    Love the Witt hotel! The limo was a good idea (esp with a group that large and the weather!)
