Girlfriends are the BEST!

A few weeks ago, I had the extreme pleasure of taking a really quick trip to Chicago for a bit of a "Girls' Weekend!" We had an absolutely amazing time! Funny story ... my friend Sarah & I got on the long term parking bus at the airport and were chatting with the (female) bus driver. We told her that we were going on a girls' weekend, and how excited we were. The bus driver says "That's great, that will be a lot of fun, if it's done right, you know, no infidelity or anything." What?? Infidelity?? It was just so funny since that had never crossed our minds! I think our biggest worry was spending too much money on yummy food and shopping!!

Anyway, the weekend was a blast! We ate here, and here, and here, and here (OMG, the cinnamon rolls were amazing!!) and drank lots of yummy red wine!! There was much laughing, talking and fun had by all! We talked about doing some crafting, but we really didn't have enough time!! Aura, the super-organized one, did have these beautiful handmade photo albums and note card sets waiting for us when we got to the hotel!! Aren't they beautiful!! She does amazing work!! Here are some pics from the weekend, as well as Aura's gorgeous goodies!!
