So, along with much of the country, we had some heat and did not really want to be walking around the city during the peak of it, so we decided to go to the BARBIE MOVIE just right next to our hotel. Of course, we got decked out in pink. Perfect friends to see this movie with; Jill from Doused in Pink and Laura from I DO deCLAIRE.
I absolutely loved my outfit, so much fun!
Look at the BOW in back!
As you probably have read before, my favorite hotel in Chicago is the Loews, for many reasons. This time it exceeded my expectations as they upgraded our Lakeview suite to the navy pier suite, and it was absolutely incredible. Definitely making me wish we would’ve had more time there!
After the movie, Kathrine from the Kathrine Eldridge blog joined is. She got us a coveted reservation at this Mediterranean restaurant called Ema and it did not disappoint. So far one of my favorite eateries in Chicago and I did not even get one picture but I did get a picture of dessert. Kathrine also found us the Dessert Dealer and we got our Sugar Fix with dessert tacos that were out of this world!
Next up was the rooftop Bar Avec that Mr. Nine and I had gone to in May. A thunderstorm was rolling in, but we got an opportunity for a photo, and each had a yummy cocktail. We’re headed back to our incredible suite and chitchatted before bed.
The next morning our dear Caroline from The Petite Fashionista was able to join us for brunch at The Albert. The food was absolutely delicious and not only did Caroline’s husband get some photos when he came to pick her up, but the doorman got a couple goodies as well. Already thinking about our next get together and definitely a favorite of the summer!
AND You know what else was great, non of us were on Social Media and it was grand!!

Bonus Girl’s Night
I got to come home and look forward to another fun girl’s night out with my friends who happen to be the wives of friends and coworkers of Mr. Nine’s. They were on their annual weekend golf trip.
T minus one week when all the shower festivities begin, and I cannot wait to love on these new girlies coming into our family! It’s going to be big, it’s going to be delicious, it’s going to be fun and it’s going to be grand in the only way I know how to party, lol. But I will be back on Monday with some goodness you will not want to miss!
Love to you all and Enjoy the weekend!
