What a wild weekend. I'm sorry for all the pictures but I have to warn you, there will be more! :)
It all started Thursday when I drove to St Louis to pick up Dianna at the airport. We then headed to The Mills Mall to meet up with Amy, one of our bloggy buddies. She is an absolute doll and I just loved her. We ate lunch at Tony Roma's and then hit Archiver's. It was such a quick afternoon, I would have loved to have spent more time with her. Hopefully we can meet up again sometime soon. Thanks Amy for the adorable gift bag you made up for us, that was so thoughtful and I loved it!!! I'm so excited that we got to meet!
Friday morning, Dianna, Jen, Erica and me headed for the Windy City to meet up with Julie for our wonderful wild weekend. We did not act like 35 year old married mommies. We were just a bunch of girlfriends having the time of our lives. We got an awesome room on Priceline at the Hilton Chicago on Michigan Avenue. We had TWO bathrooms in our room which was awesome for 5 girls. Friday night we headed out to Rosemont for the New Kids on the Block concert. Now before I hear any groans, only a true New Kids fan can get the excitement and craziness of it. It was like being reunited with our first loves. They played the perfect mix of their old hits and their new music and put on a fantastic show--it was amazing. We had the best time ever. There were people there dressed in 80's clothes, people wearing old New Kids shirts, pins etc. It was hilarious. The excitement was overwhelming.
The next day we headed to Millenium Park to take pictures and walk around. Then we walked around downtown and shopped. It was a beautiful sunny day and while it could have been warmer, it wasn't too bad.
Here's a picture of our reflection in the bean. I love the girl off to the side making fish lips. What's up with that??
This is Roy, our waiter for the night. He was such a cool guy. He got a bouncer to stand by our table because we had a couple of old stalker guys bugging us. He then got us a round of shots later to make up for the creepy guys. He was awesome!
"Tonight" when they were at the back of the arena by us.
And just to show how insanely awesome this concert was, Erica and I are going to see them again in St Louis on November 10th. Anyone want to come with us???? :)
