Steph, Nikki, Alicia and I checked into a hotel Saturday night with plans of cocktails, shopping, and a wonderful grown-up dinner. All went well until poor Alicia sliced open the tip of her finger on my picnic knife. So off to the ER she went. Once everyone was back in the room, we sat up until well past 1am visiting, telling stories, and cracking each other up. Injuries aside, it was a perfect little getaway.
The next day we hit Oakbrook Mall and I found these wonderful new goodies:
Baby Will can’t be the great-grandson of one of our nation’s first wave of aviators, the grandson of a pilot and the nephew of an aerospace engineer and NOT have some aviation inspiration over his crib! That just wouldn’t be right.
So I picked up those goodies along with a few little things for the kids and wrapped things up after a lovely lunch with the ladies. I can’t wait to do it again soon.
