back from C-Town...

Hey y'all! I'm back from Chicago. It was a very short but fun-packed trip! I got in to town Friday night and all of the girls rushed off to Sepia for a dinner for Paige. It was a lovely restaurant with delicious food (Elaine and I ate baby octopus! YuM - tasted like chicken, LoL). I got to know Kelly's friends Rox and Elaine, and Elaine's daughters, Emma and Charlotte as well as some of Paige's friends. As Kelly suspected, Rox, Elaine and I hit it off in a big way! I felt like we had been friends forever. We shared dinner and great wine and then we were all pooped (bunch of old broads!) so Rox made some prank phone calls in the car on the way back to the hotel and then we all crashed.

Saturday I hung out with Kelly as we caught up on everything, talked and talked and ironed tablecloths for the reception!

The wedding was at A New Leaf in downtown Chicago which is actually a floral shop attatched to a banquet facility. It was so perfect, simple and unique. It was simply decorated with candles EVERYWHERE! My favorite part of the place was the courtyard.

My inlaws are in town and my Mother In Law wants to take me shopping today (FUN!) so I'm just going to to post a few pics of the STUNNING bride, Paige and the man of her dreams, Chris:

Hey Little Girl,
You didn't mention that you had everyone cracing up with your Nanny
(Fran Drescher) impression. Thanks for posting about the wedding. I thought I would wait for a few more pictures and post tomorrow. We had so, so, so much fun. Thanks for all the great comments about Paige looking beautiful. It was exactly what they wanted. Talk to you soon.
bfffffffffffffffffffffffffff
p.s. Rox was putting away Stephen's suitcase and found the photobooth picture of you and Stephen...she said they were crack'in up girl!
