The Weekend is FINALLY Over!


It started off with a friendly reunion on Friday night. At about 9:00 Katie Daniel came over to my apartment and we hit the streets of Burlington, to start things off. I forgot how much I love that girl!! There has always been such a connection between the two of us. That type of connection where no matter how much time has passed between us both, we can just pick up right where we left off, laughing and talking as if it were only yesterday we had seen each other. The goofiness on both our parts came out immidiatley and we found ourselve immersed in laughter and dancing for the rest of the night. We started things off with a few drinks at Johns Main Event and were able to catch up over a few Coronas (for me) and Wiskey sours (for her). Katie Daniel learned how to drink...who would have thought?! We started to tire of the scene at John's quickly and decided to bar hop through Burlington, in hopes of some fun.

No such luck.

We wandered to The Brickyard where as can be expected nothing was happening, then wandered towards Palm Gardens where again...nothing. Katie and I then looked at each other and almost simultaneously said "Lets go to Lake Geneva".

I was in heaven! Katie Daniel wanted to party..with me. Pretty sure I told her she needed to move back home =) I can't express enough how excited I was about the evening, how excited we both were to be the "Dynamic Duo" again. (Just go with it...an old work nickname).

We drove to Champs, had a few jaeger bombs (my weakness), a few more beers, and danced our little butts off. Dave showed up a while later and we were able to catch up with another face from our past. The night was great! But after being mauled by men, we tired of Champs quickly and decided to wander to Hogs and Kisses to finish up the night with a few more drinks, and some more dancing.

At about 1:00 the three of us drove back to B-Town, headed up the old White Fox Den for some early morning eats, then parted ways. I sure do miss that girl.

The rest of my weekend was spent in Chicago, at the Bridal Trade Show at the Merchandise Mart. For three days I woke at 7, arrived home at 7 and shopped for everything under the bridal sun: bridal gowns, bridesmaids, mother of the bride, accessories, evening wear, tuxedos, flower girls and our largest purchase, PROM! Uy. Seriously, I went to bed last night dreaming of bridal gowns and seeing fashion show after fashion show running through my head!! I'm a little sick of it all. I'm glad to be back to where things can chill out for a while, although we nowhave about 200 different stock items to enter into our system. Welcome to my Tuesday.

Heather, I didn't know anything about brunch this saturday but I wouldn't be able to make it anyways...I'll be in New York this weekend.

And yes I can't believe how long it's been since I've seen her either. You wouldn't recognize her seriously. She cut her hair (looks adorable) and isn't so....katie'ish (if that makes any sense). She's laid back, and funny, and doesn't take shit anymore. IT'S GREAT! haha Katie F'n Daniel.

Next time I talk to her I'll def. tell her you say hi.

Brunch soon girls!
