I am SO tired today but it was so worth it! Chicago was amazing and in case you weren't already sure, @audrewuh @minskat30 @speakeasy14 @TwoDimes @AlPacina @caseface5
are absolutely awesome!
On Friday, H picked me up from work early and dropped me off at the airport. I had a couple hours to kill so I had a few drinks and then was on my way! I met @caseface5
when I landed and we headed to our rental to meet everyone else! We spent the whole night talking and laughing and boozing.
Saturday, we all got up and sent @minskat30
to the store so we could put our secret plan into motion. We had a surprise baby shower for her!
Foods = salad with craisins, feta, walnuts and raspberry vinaigrette, egg bake with peppers, cheddar, and garlic chicken sausage, guac, pickle dip, and gluten free brownies and cupcakes:
We each brought a onesie for Baby Ani and used them to decorate the living room. Mine is the elephant wearing sunnies on the far left: @minskat30
;was so surprised and she cried (twice!). Proof:
It says 'R is for Rajah'.
Then we made headbands for Ani. Here's mine:
Later that afternoon we headed out and did an Architecture Boat Tour which was a really cool way to see Chicago!
Here's the Sears Tower (or whatever it's called now?):
After that, we grabbed Chicago-style hotdogs (OMG SO GOOD) and walked to Millennium Park to see the Bean!
We took a ton of pictures in front of it but the ones on my phone aren't great so I'll let someone else post those.
We headed back to the house to relax for a little, went out for a delicious Italian dinner, and then headed home to play CAH and laugh our butts off.
Yesterday was sad because we all had to head home. I left around 10am and my flight was delayed a couple times but it was perfect for me to have a bloody mary, a couple mimosas, and grab some deep-dish pizza.
I got home, showered, and immediately napped for 2 hours. H and I caught up on Shameless last night and then I had a really hard time falling and staying asleep for some reason so I'm really dragging today!
I miss everyone so much and can't wait to plan another weekend away!
