Chicago Weekend Wrap Up: Part 2

I am back with part 2 of our weekend!
(you can catch up on part 1 here)

Saturday morning began with a surprise baby shower for our friend Sarah at Prasino.
Sarah and her husband Mitch are expecting their first little guy in October 
and we all could not be happier about it.
He will be the first babe in our group of friends and he is sure to be spoiled by all of us!
We decided to help Sarah and Mitch build their nursery library and
everyone gave them a copy of their favorite childhood books!

The rest of the day Saturday with spent girl talking.
No joke we spent HOURS just lounging around, gossiping,
reading magazines and catching up on each others lives.
It was just like Saturdays in college and it was perfect.

Saturday night it was time for the big BOAT party for Laura's birthday.
We rented a boat that took us out on the the lake, down the Chicago river (through downtown-so beautiful) and back out into the lake for the Navy Pier fireworks.
It was the most beautiful evening and we had the great.est time. 
Like, ever.
Ready for the photo dump??



There is a large possibility that we hailed a stretch limo for the ride home...
and by possibility I mean a 100% chance
(sadly it all happened so fast I didn't get a chance to take any pictures)

And now it's Wednesday and I am already counting down the hours days until this weekend!
