Starbucks and city sidewalks.

Earlier this month, I had one of the best weekends of my life. A few of my college friends met in Chicago for my friend’s birthday. What a beautiful and vibrant city. Any ways, the group of us all lived in the same dorm freshman year of college, on same floor, and just four consecutive doors down from each other.  Cool, right??

So in Chicago, we packed everything we could into a three-day weekend. We went shopping, visited coffee shops, ate dinner at TGIF’s, tried a few brews at a beer house, ate brunch a local hot spot, and explored downtown Chicago. We stayed one night downtown (Can I add that I’d love to live in that hotel room forever??) and went to our friend’s improv show (hilarious!), followed by karaoke and then over to a dancing bar.

All dolled up and ready to hit downtown.

This dancing bar was awesome, unlike any place I’ve ever been to. There were three dance floors and non-stop music. We ended up dancing for four hours to “Wedding Music” or “Dad Music” as I like to call it. All the good stuff from ’60s, ’70s, ’80s and so on from Michael Jackson to classic rock to a bunch of other stuff I’m blanking out on. Believe me, in the four hours we were there, there were only two songs I didn’t recognize. Two! And since we were there for so long, we made friends with other friend groups on the dance floor, which made it feel like our own party. We owned that dance floor. 🙂

As you know, maintaining and keeping long-distance friendships is hard, so getting together is always exciting and much-appreciated. Within the first few hours of being there, my sides already hurt from laughing my head off. We shared stories and talked about things I’ve completely forgotten about. I love when you can pick up right where you left off with friends. I’m already looking forward to seeing these girls again next winter! Until then, I’m happy we have our Bachelor Fantasy League gossip about and keep us connected.
