Monday Mayhem - Chicago Trip

We had a fabulous time in Chicago this weekend! My mom, sisters and I spent two days in Chicago, shopping Michigan Avenue, eating dinner at Lawry's, sleeping at the Ritz Carlton, and eating breakfast in their Cafe! It was incredible. We had a relaxing, productive, memorable time! It was short, but sweet! Here are some pictures of what we did...

Walking down to start our afternoon shopping on Michigan Avenue

Our fabulous dinner at Lawry's! We had their famous spin salad, prime rib, mashed potatoes, whipped horseradish, and yorkshire pudding. Y-U-M!!!

When you order your meal, you just say you want Prime Rib. Then when the Chef arrives with his cart, you tell him what cut and how done you want it

Our Sunday Morning breakfast at the Ritz Carlton Cafe! The G's treated us to this wonderful meal

The Bento Box breakfast I ordered...a little bit of everything! I bet you can't tell, but the muffin the lower right hand corner was tofu ;)

The big, huge, comfy king size bed that three of us ladies shared. Kendall got the cot...

What?! No mention of the trio of shoe shopping?! Two pinks and a red! Yes, I too, had a most fabulous time! I am still feasting on every morsel of fabulous fun!!! It was short and sweet and perfectly amazing! I would not change a thing...not even the down pour of rain or our side trips in the car...it made for Victorious Memories! I love you so much and am so thankful that you came up from L-ville, as second weekend in a row, just to share in this awesome experience! Thanks for posting the pics! I love it!
