Stephanie’s Bachelorette weekend!!!

To start I can say that the weekend was a success! After checking into the Hyatt, we headed to Blowtique. I had never been before but my sisters Jen and Christina swear by this place and I can see why. An hour after our arrival we had fifteen girls with volumized tresses! There is truly nothing better than having great hair. Nothing I tell you.

Afterwards we went to rock bottom for a few afternoon cocktails and lunch. We continued to get to know all of Stephanie’s friends and hear their stories of her. It was awesome. Getting to know someone who you adore’s friends is pretty cool. They were awesome ladies and I am even more excited for the wedding now!

After our lunches the girls did a little shopping on Michigan Ave while Christine, mom, Jen and I got to work! It was decoration time! We opened the bags of decorations and turned their suite into a pink bachlorette dream!

Once the girls changed into their LBD’s and steph into her white hot party dress we were ready. On the agenda? Champs and presents to start. Always a fun time at a bachlorette. We ate appetizers and laughed at the goofy items the girls presented Steph.

Before long, we were in Little Market Brasserie for dinner. This place is great if you are planning a Chicago bachlorette or even another event. We had Steph select items for a five course meal. It was perfect.

After dinner my mom headed out and the rest of the party headed to Rock It where we had a table for waiting for us. After many drinks were poured we went to El Hefe! It was a memorable bachlorette that made for an unproductive Sunday:) all in all it went off without a hitch!

Happy Thursday! This has been a long week full of work and adult obligations.  I am ready for Steph’s bachelorette party weekend to start! Pass the Courvoisier. 

(Unrelated photo of Doug and I taken by someone with a magical camera. I like to think that this is what we look like all the time.)

Another gratuitous photo of my man and I for smile Friday! We had just gotten off the plane and checked in at the Venetian. What was the first stop? The pool of course! Take me back to the sunshine! 

This weekend is for straight up relaxation. Vegas was amazing don’t get me wrong but it’s not a place you can relax. There is way too much to do! 

Long runs and naps will be the centerfold to a laid back next few days. I hope to catch up on DVR and check out a few new restaurants in our neck of the woods. 

What about you guys?
