The Ultimate Weekend Update

This past weekend the three Weekend Update hosts met in real life! I traveled from LA, and Sami from Denver, to Chicago to stay with the amazing hostess, Dana. Such.a.blast.

Dana was the most gracious of hosts. She's seriously the sweetest and planned a great weekend. And Sami is really is full of shenanigans. Girlfrand busted out in song and dance during a boat ride we took! These ladies are amazing.

We were lucky enough to have Chris of Chubbette Tales with us all weekend as well. Chris in two words: hilarious and fabulous. It was great having her and Dana show us around all weekend! And because the trip was above and beyond we also got to hang out with Paige of Little Nostalgia all day Friday and Mary of Little Bit of Class Little Bit of Sass for dinner Saturday.

Sami, me, Chris, Dana, Paige!


The Bean |  Famous Chicago sign | Me in front of the Wrigley Field


Dinner at RPM (Giuliana and Bill Rancic's restaurant) | lobster caprese salad | Sami & me | Me, Chris & Sami


The Chicago skyline during the day, at sunset, and at night


Unfortunately I didn't get any great pictures of the three of the Weekend Update hosts together, or even a decent one of Dana and me. I think Dana did though so I'll have to steal her photos ;)

Thanks for coming to visit. I have some cute pictures that I'll email you. I hope your toes have defrosted even though it was a total heat wave in Chicago. (Going to be in the high 60s today!) I had such a fun weekend with everyone!

So glad you had an awesome time in Chicago. It is absolutely time for me to find time to fly there and experience this marvelous city for myself. Love the picture where you are sitting in the glass elevator (possibly?!). Scary and cool at the same time.

How fun! The picture of you sitting on the glass floor makes me dizzy just looking at it haha. Looks like you had a blast.

Mree said...

Sounds like a fun time! The picture of you sitting on the glass makes me weak...I would be WAY to afraid to do that, a little afraid of heights.

Chelsea Grey said...

Looks like you had SO much fun! That pic of you sitting on the skydeck is super super cute. New fb profile pic??

I am so ABSOLUTELY jealous of your incredible weekend! Oh, how I would LOVE to hang out with each one of you lovely ladies! Looks like a great time!! :)

Christina said...

What an awesome weekend. So many bloggers! You all look so cute. Though I don't know how you were all so bundled up in 50 degrees! I still love that skydeck picture so much. And it still freaks me out! I love that you went to RPM! My brother was there last weekend too for the Seahawks game. He said he loves Chicago and was surprised by how much there was to see and do. I'm adding it to my travel bucket list!

Nicole Marie said...

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

I'm totally jealous of your weekend! My uncles use to live in Chicago when I was teenager and we would go up there and visit them all the time. I haven't been there since college though and I have been dying to go back!!!!!!!! This post made me want to go even more!
