Mimosas and Cat Naps

This weekend was an absolute BLAST!!!! Pheew, I am exhausted but would do it all over in a heartbeat!

Like I mentioned Friday, one of my great friends from California was in town. Saturday morning I picked him up and off to brunch we went....quite a few mimosas were consumed while waiting for our table!! Hey, when in Rome! After brunch we met up with the Hubs at a local...ahem... bar and umm...talked! :) After a few more rounds, we headed home for a quick nap and then started fresh for one amazing night out!

We ate an amazing meal at de Cero, outdoors nonetheless - in October in Chicago (yes that all needed to be bold and italic! This is major!) - It was the perfect evening, temps around 75-80...after some great conversation and plenty of laughs we continued the fun and walked to a near by rooftop bar! Some more friends met up with us here, we had a great time, the view of the city skyline was perfect....I had too many that day to even remember my camera - so I will have to wait to have some emailed to me to share! (Will need to recreate the look to share - it was the perfect outfit for the night!)

After leaving the rooftop and hitting up another bar, then more drinks back at our loft we all stumbled to bed....lets just say it was practically sunrise! When we finally woke, and after some quick showers, and a grocery store run we all (Hubs, Friend and myself) spent the rest of the day huddled on the couch laughing about the night before (nursing hangovers, multiple cat naps) and glued to the football channels!

All in all one of the best weekends I've had in a while! I miss my bud already!

But right now all I can think about is being here......still a bit sleepy today!
