chi-town

August 15, 2013



last weekend brought me to the lovely windy city for a girls weekend!!  we had a college reunion with my purdue roommates and friends.  since our college days we have called different places home for 3 years and i think that is why it makes our get togethers so special.  i love getting all together and our conversations, laughs, and everything seem like nothing has changed.  it is fun to reminisce over every single crazy purdue story... dance parties, halloweens, football games and everthing in between. 


we started the weekend off by kayaking down the chicago river.  we went on a tour (which i am so happy we did) it was so interesting to learn about the history, the old time gangs and the architecture.  it was a perfect sunny day!!  excuse my somewhat blurry pictures... i took them through a zip-lock on my phone since we got pretty splashed on!! 











friday night we went to this new mexican place (fancy mexican i call it..) called mecadito.  yum!! it was delicious!!  we each got a margarita, chips & homemade guacamole then split the tacos.  we each got to sample the beef,  pork belly, chicken and mahi mahi.  the beef was unanimously the favorite!!!







saturday was a pretty lazy day!!! brunch and laying out by the pool.  i think i could get used to the pool view... it was pretty amazing!!  





our last night together we did what we love the most... being wine-os! haha.  we drank some wine on the roof top and then moved to a wine bar called bin 36 for wine flights & dinner.  the food was not our favorite but the wine & company made up for it because we had a great time.  after lots of laughs we moved back to laura's apartment to hang out for the rest of the night.    





such a fun weekend together!!! i am sad it is over!!!  until the next adventure...
