chi town.

this past weekend i was lucky enough to travel to chicago for my cousins bachelorette party and it was amazing!

if you have never been you have to add it to your list of places to visit. it actually reminded me a lot of seattle just on a bigger scale. they have the best food. cute little neighborhoods. a river that flows through downtown. amazing shopping. beautiful buildings and a ton of history.

there was twelve of us girls and we stayed in the cutest little brick brownstone. the MOH did the best job planning our entire weekend. we had goodie bags when we arrived with matching shirts that we wore to the beach. the house was decorated so cute and even had a photo booth with props for us to take endless pictures with!

we did an architecture tour {this is an absolute must when you visit chicago} where we learned all about the amazing history of some of the oldest buildings along the river and downtown. after the tour we made our way to millennium park and took obligatory selfies in front of the bean. we then walked along michigan ave where all of the best shopping is and had brunch on rush street {again rush street is another must when visiting}

it was also fleet week while we were there, so on saturday we posted up at a beach bar all in our matching shirts and watched the blue angels put on an incredible show and swam in lake michigan.

it was super hot and humid {typical midwest weather} but we all had the best time and i cant wait to celebrate her in a month on her big day!

but until then its detox time...
