Golden Weekend

We took an "us" weekend. 

A college friend was celebrating his golden birthday on Saturday night and we decided to make the trip to Chicago to join in on the fun!


It was mid afternoon by the time we checked into our hotel. We took a cab to a quirky neighborhood bar. We sipped thick dark beers and ate fried cheese curds. We talked and we laughed. 

We laughed a lot. 

We met up with a group of our friends for a pre-party feast. We ate at my favorite restaurant to visit in the city and enjoyed small plates Italian, wine, and more laughter.

We went to a bar and bought $30 wristbands that I swore would be a waste because there was no way I could drink $30 worth of alcohol in 3 hours. I was wrong... I was so wrong. 


We were the first to have to bail on the party. It may have only been 12:30, but in Michigan it was 1:30 and we had to be lame and call it a night. 


We drunkenly ate the BEST chicken shawarma I have ever had. Ever. 

We slept in. 
We. Slept. In. 

We left earlier than expected. Running away from what my husband called, "ice death". We pouted the whole way home, frantically trying to find the MSU basketball game on the radio. 

We were reunited with our sweet angel baby toddler who I missed incomprehensible amounts. 

It was a good weekend.

Sometimes it's good to know you can still just be a couple. Be husband and wife. Just that and nothing else.

You're totally inspiring me! I've never ever left V alone, except for 1 night with a babysitter, and we were home by 9. My friend is getting married in April, and I MAYYY be leaving V alone with my sister for TWO nights. Eeeep! I'm excited, yet scared. But if you can do it, I just gotta put on my big girl panties and do it, already
