Mile Stones: Birthday's & Bachelorettes

Nicole, Lauren, and Carly (on the far right, she was our bachelorette) 

Saturday morning I packed my bags and boarded the train to Chicago with my good friend Lauren. Chicago has always been the place where the four of us reunite. We all met playing volleyball in college and thankfully haven't lost touch. This group of girls means a lot me, we've all been through a lot together and somehow we always come out stronger! This weekend was a little different. We were celebrating a bachelorette party for Carly who is getting married in April. It was great to get a chance to see her, she recently moved out East. We also celebrated a milestone birthday for Lauren, the big 25!! Our trip was short and sweet, but jam packed!

Sunday, Nicole and I went to Lincoln Park and did a little shopping. We stopped at this great little tapas bar, Ba Ba Rambo. I really recommend it, they had great service and the food was delicious! For those of you who don't know what tapas is, it is variety of Spanish inspired appetizers. Normally you choose a couple different ones for your meal. I choose chicken and sausage skewers and scallops with spaghetti squash and cranberries!


  1. Those scallops look awesome - I'll have to keep that place in mind. Sounds like you had a great time with the girls this weekend@
