That's what friends are for...

I had such a blast this weekend in Chicago with my friends. I have not laughed this hard in a long time. My friends were just absolutely hysterical! The trip started off with five of us flying out Friday afternoon from Cleveland to Chicago. We arrived around 4:30 and headed to "The W" where the girls were staying. I was staying with my friend Megan, however, she was still returning from Boca Raton. I hung out with the girls until we all met up later. That night we went to Lynne's to all help out with the shower preparations. We all helped out in making the appetizer and desserts. I must say for the first time, I tried Texas sheet cake. Yum! I guess it's a household tradition at Lynne's, and it was quite appropriate as the dessert since Lynne will be moving to Texas with her new husband after the wedding.
Saturday was a crazy day, Megan and I woke up at the crack of dawn to run more errands for Lynne. The shower was held at the party room in Lynne's high rise condo building in downtown Chicago. Was I able to watch the Buckeyes game you ask? Sara and I were shamelessly texting our hubby's and my sister to try to get score updates. Next door to our party room, was a theater room where a group of Michigan alumni had rented out to watch the game. Every now and then you would hear screams and shouts coming from their room. It was driving me crazy not knowing what was going on! Finally after the gifts were open, they put the game on in our room as well. Thank god! Saturday night we are went out and had a fabulous time. Megan and I could only make it to midnight, we were exhausted. The others went to another bar and stayed out until 3am! Needless to say, I had to fly back with several hung over friends the following morning. It was the best time, I was literally in tears listening to Anne and Liberty's crazy antics from the night before. I honestly think they were still drunk on the flight home! Gotta love'em though. Enjoy the pics!
