cku chicago.

our crazy whirlwind day! i had a blast. but man oh man, am i exhausted today!
monica and carmen got in around 11pm tuesday night. of course, we stayed up late chatting! finally went to bed around 2ish, i think! a 630 am alarm clock was not my friend! we were on our way to the hotel by 730ish.
met some lovely ladies when we got there! and can i say i love accents!!!
we tried to fit all 6 of in one car. that was so not possible. so two cars it was. crazy times. wilder rides. just ask the girls! :)
went to navy pier. ate chicago dogs! rode the ferris wheel, well some of us. headed to scrap stores. i think we hit 5 total! one was stumbled upon by total accident! gotta love that. i wasn't the winner of this spree. i think alison had us all beat but i'm not for sure!
took everyone to giordano's for dinner. yummy deep dish pizzas!
made it back to the hotel around 11pm. i think margaret and i left a short time after. and after a little {ahem} detour i was home by 1230am. i so shouldn't have gone to work today.
can't wait to hear their stories and see their pictures. i am so glad i was able to meet up with everyone. they were all wonderful!

Love the group pic, and I agree it's fun to hear what everyone's accents are like in person!
