What happens in Chicago...

A couple weekends ago, I had the great pleasure of meeting up with a few of the bestest D~peeps around. Where did we go??? CHI-CA-GO!!!

Let me just say that I was SO excited! My head needed this rest and I am so glad that I did it.
Here we are... Heather, Misty, ME, Bobbie, Marc, Johnathan & Alex.

**There were suppose to be more of us, but due to "life" they couldn't make it... no worries... I don't hold grudges long :)

I wont bore you with all the details; I just plan on giving you the Juicy ones...

Friday night started out with a cold beverage before dinner to "lighten the mood". I wont name names... but I WILL show a picture.
Way to get it started... "nameless D Mama"!

On Saturday... we had snow!!!
That was a little added excitement for this born and raised Cracker.

Once we got down town... there was a sight that you wouldn't believe unless you saw it yourself... there were NAKED SANTAS EVERYWHERE!!

No kidding!! It was such a sight to see that I forgot to take a picture, so I found one off the Internet... enjoy!

HELLOO!!! Bow chicka wow wow...

Now keep in mind that it was snowing (not sure where these pics were from)... I'm thinking there were a whole lot of frozen nipples in Chicago that day :)
With all the hotness and ass cheeks around... we were inspired to stop into somewhere a little naughty. Hey! Santa was doin it!!

Besides naked Santa... the naughtiest we could find was Victoria Secret.

I will just say that SOMEBODY did purchase one of those frilly little get ups and SOMEBODY was planning on getting a little frisky with the hubby when they got home.

We will never tell... but that is ONE HELL OF A WAY to say Thank you! Or Merry Christmas! Or Happy HoHoHo! Just sayin!!

In true girly fashion... we spent all of Saturday shopping.
 Saturday night we met back up with Marc and his fam for some of Chicago's best... PIZZA!

Well... AFTER we took a few minutes to check our Facebooks that is...
The wait was plenty, but it was dang good stuff :)

Here are Marc and his family again. Their kiddos are so sweet and pretty dang patient I might add.

Sadly, as quick as the weekend snuck up on me... it was over.
I wish I would have had more time to hang out with these amazing peeps.

Sunday, as I sat in the back of the shuttle watching the city fade away into the distance...

 I couldn't help but think about how amazing it is to hang out for the weekend with people you have never met I.R.L... Yet, it was like we had been friends forever. At least for me... there was no awkwardness. No reason to feel reserved or shy. I was among friends... a family of sorts. And I am grateful that I had the opportunity to hang out with them.

Love you guys!!!

BTW Misty... the caffeine addict took care of the rest of your soda for you :)

 Thank.you.very.much... I needed that "fix".

**I need to start taking pics om myself in the mirror more often... I look damn SKIN-NEY!  Right on!!!
