girls weekend!!!!

I have been meaning to post about this all last week, and finally I am here to share!

Last weekend {Valentines/Presidents Day weekend} I hopped a bus and headed to Chicago to spend time with my besties!

It was seriously such a blessing that Greg was able to take off work and STAY with the babies…you heard that right folks…he willingly stayed a weekend alone with the kids. Not that they aren’t fun or anything…they are…but they are also a lot of work..and being on duty for 3 days straight is a lot. I even dread those long stretches when Greg has to travel for work. Anyway, all that to say…I am fully aware that not all husbands/dads would be up for that…so to say I was so blessed by this time away is an understatement!

I was in Chicago Friday afternoon till super late on Sunday night {took midnight bus home} and spent the weekend walking, lounging, eating, talking, shopping, laughing, and connecting with my soul sisters!

Friday Beth and I decided to have a low key “mama” day…we grabbed lunch at a sweet little cafe near our hotel…shopped a bit…took a nap…and then had dinner {PIZZA!} in bed! It was seriously so beautiful to connect with Beth who is also a mama and talk about life as a wife and a mother and just being encouraged all around! I am pretty sure we fell asleep at 9:00 pm…we sure know how to live it up in the Windy City!


Saturday was lazy in the morning and we lounged, grabbed a late breakfast at the same cafe {we wanted to feel like “regulars”} and then we heard from Darcy that she would be arriving soon! And then there were three….


Darcy is one of my favorite people to explore with…she is so laid back, up for anything {except karaoke…thank goodness!} and just loves to have fun all while being up for discussing life, love, and other mysteries!

I won’t bore you with every detail of or day so I will let the pics do the talking!







Fun day ended with a stop at a dualing piano bar. We had a blast and stayed out way past my normal bedtime…wild woman over here!

Sunday morning Beth left super early, and I really couldn’t sleep so off to the lobby to check in with these cuties via FaceTime….


A little crazy how much I missed them all! After a slow morning Darcy and I stopped for food and off we went for the day…we went all over town it felt like and ended up in Millenium Park, and Lincoln Park to name a few…






We rolled into our hotel room Sunday evening with just enough time to pack up and take an hour nap before catching a cab and hopping on the bus to take the overnight trip home!

I didn’t sleep much, if any, so when we rolled into town around 6 am, I rolled down the windows and got home as fast as possible! I crawled into bed and woke up 1.5 hours later to sweet baby snuggles!!!!

So thankful this weeked happened {we have been planning this weekend since last June!}….so refreshing and so wonderful to come back to my husband and kids….right where I belong!
