Chicago Weekend!

First and foremost, thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes! You all are fabulous and I love you to pieces! :)

And I started my 26th 21st year off with a bang! I had not one, but two wonderful birthday celebrations, and my birthday week [yes, i have a week] was naturally filled with a lot of shopping, fine dining and other fabulousness.

So, hopefully you all can forgive me for not posting in almost a week.
But I did not forget about those Chicago pictures I promised. Our long weekend away was truly wonderful! We did a lot of sight seeing, of course, because they are some beautiful sights to be seen in this pretty city! And I had a blast being an annoying tourist playing with my camera. We also loosened our belts a couple notches indulged in some mouthwatering food and beverages, including the best deep-dish pizza ever and some pretty tasty beer at the Goose Island Brewery! And to top off our action-filled weekend, we also saw the Blue Man group (awesome show) and went out dancing at a super cool South American restaurant called Natcionale 27. Not to mention that I also got to spend the entire weekend with our fabulous host and one of my besties, Jen!

So, all in all the trip was a huge success! Here are just a few of the 300 photos I took! And I will be back tomorrow to post pictures of my birthday celebration #2.

Happy Monday!
