i was so looking forward to this day! i couldn’t wait to celebrate with dana!
i love this gal. i know i tend to say this about a lot of my friends…but hey, shouldn’t friends be this awesome?!! she is so stinkin’ sweet, kind, loving, fashionable, and soooooo flippin’ funny!! i love her quirky nature, her love for sharks and rainbows. her lighthearted take on life. she’s a gem.
well, this babe is getting married this july. i am crossing my fingers this little lady in my belly stays put until after dana and scott’s wedding! do you hear that little baby girl? i must go to their wedding!!! you can come on out anytime after that!
as soon as i received dana’s shower invite, i perused her registry and snatched up a few pretties for this bride to be. her shower was in lincoln park at mon ami gabi and i have never ever been there! maybe it is because i have eaten at the one in the ‘burbs and have tried it, so i never had the need to eat there in the city but for some reason, i always thought it was closer to armitage near cafe babareeba but nope. it’s near lincoln park zoo!
i arrived a bit late, naturally, but the party had just started! i was super psyched that dana was sitting at our table. i was able to catch up with her and her other friends. can i just say she was wearing the most beautiful skirt! i was in love! it was so pretty, romantic, and beautiful. i love dana and her fashion choices…she’s always so vibrant and eclectic!
we ate, chit chatted, and had a lot of laughs! after lunch was served, the men came bouncing in. dana’s dad, scott, uncle, etc. came to join the party! they played a fun game and then the gift unwrapping began and the fun ensued! i was quite surprised how fast they went through everything because, let me tell ya, there was huge mound of gifts! more like a mountain of gifts!
after all the gifts were opened, everyone started to say their goodbyes. it was such a fun afternoon! i had a swell time seeing everyone in dana’s life and i had the best time seeing dana! i seriously can’t wait to celebrate their marriage this summer…right baby girl?!! haha!
