Total Basset Case: Summer in the City

Jul 15, 2014

Summer in the City

As I mentioned, this is the spring/summer/fall of weddings for us.
This past weekend we were in Chicago for a fabulous one!
One of our college girlfriends got married and it was so so fun.
The weekend was jammed packed with events, love, fun and laughter and it couldn't have been better.

This weekend was our first experiences with airbnb and it worked out really well.  
I highly suggest looking into it next time your travel! 
We were blocks from other friends that rented one as well and close to our friends that live in Chicago.  It was a win and helped 10 people not have to share one bathroom.  
That didn't stop all of us girls snuggling like puppies in a basket in our friend Laura's bed though and laughing our heads off.  It happens 100% of the time we all see each other so it was no surprise to anyone.

Friday night we had a low country boil at The Southern for our girl Maria's birthday.
Talk about deliciousness.  
 Rooftop bars, besties and perfect weather.
I was one happy camper.
And ready to move to Chicago.
Dress here

Saturday we lounged around got ready for the wedding.
But not before we popped into Eataly
But I was so in love with that place it's getting a blog post all on it's own. 

The wedding and reception were held at the Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier.
Talk about beautifulness!
Complete with fireworks at the end of the night, it was all so so pretty!
This was the first time all of us girls and guys from college had been together in a very, very long time and to say we had fun and danced our faces off would be a gross understatement.  
I'll spare you the video of us dancing...you can thank me later. 

The amount of laughter we shared far outweighs the lack of sleep we had.

I think that every time I'm in Chicago - why don't I live here?! Luckily my sister does, so I think I need to use a visit to her as an excuse to check out Eataly.

Sounds like a great weekend, and I love your pink dress!

Love both of those dresses!! Is the necklace on the second dress attached??? (if not, I applaud you on finding the perfect necklace for that outfit!) :)

I traveled to Chicago last Summer for work and would love to go back again for fun. There are so many great restaurants. And I love that dress you wore to the wedding! That color looks great on you! Now I need to know where it's from...ha!

Glad AirBNB worked out for you. I've yet to try it. I see a lot of baby shower's in your future. : )

Can't tell which dress I love more-- your black or pink one! I want to hear more details about the AIRBnB, please. :)
