What a fabulous weekend we had! The weather seriously feels like fall & it's such a nice break from that ridiculous heat we had. It makes me want to go to Boggio's for pumpkins and apple cider already!
Friday was GNO with two of my J's, Jessica and Jen. We went to Brandy's and indulged in too many martini's and some yummy appetizers and entree's. We all have so much going on in our lives right now, it was great to catch up. We've already planned a triple date for this coming weekend to the new burger & sushi joint B.A.S.H. in Ottawa. Us girls are such great planners :)
Saturday was the big day for Matt & Lizzy. We headed to Chicago around noon, grabbed a drink as soon as we got to the hotel, visited for a bit, then got ready. We stayed at the Westin on the River. We stayed at a Westin in Boston too, seriously beautiful hotels for pretty reasonable prices. It's right across the street from the House of Blues, Bar Louie, & Harry Caray's.
The wedding ceremony and reception were at Fulton's on the River. Known for their steaks & located on Chicago's River Walk. Everything turned out perfect. Seriously, they are the cutest couple. One of their readings was the song The Power of Love by Huey Lewis and the News. How stinkin' cute is that! We had a great time catching up with some old high school pals, lots of laughs, & lots of dancing, & fun.

house of blues!
We decided about 10 PM that we were getting pretty tired, but we still wanted to check out the House of Blues for a bit so we stopped there for one drink & then called it a night. There is so much to do and see in the city, I wish we would've had more time to spend there, but we were tired, & little hung over in the morning & ready to get home to our pug. As much as Chicago fascinates me, I still love nothing more than my small town surrounded by cornfields, & open road. Another weekend for the books! And so many more to go still as we enter into August. Brantley Gilbert concert this weekend, Mike Milligan & Steam Shovel the following, bike trip to Minnesota for a wedding, then practically Labor Day weekend & September right around the corner!
