Jim and I ventured to Chicago this past weekend for an extra-long weekend getaway for the wedding of our friends Alexa & Matt!
Once again, I think it’s best if the pictures tell the story!
caught brunch with suz and jon! They were in town for a cubs/tigers game.
did the tourist thang.. started at the bean!
museum of science & industry fun!
met up with the ladayys and their guys for pizza at homeslice! Fun atmosphere and fun people. 🙂 Loud, as the train was right above us, but otherwise great time!
started with 7 sweaty miles on the lakeshore! But the cool breeze coming off the lake was amazing
treat yo self
dinner at tango sur (not pictured), fun in the garage with games and a dance party, then an even bigger dance party at 90s night..
Wedding day!! It took a while to get from Wrigleyville to Park Ridge due to Comicon happening across the street from our hotel (I kid you not), but it was so much fun once we were there! Beautiful ceremony, great reception with awesome service, yummy food, good company and a great DJ!
on our way to the ceremony!
Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Cowie!
found a last minute dress I ended up loving..
with Shelly & Jenn!
the good eats!
Our 6am flight was rough. I do not do well with motion, lack of sleep, and alcohol prior.
