To say I had a blast in Chicago for my birthday weekend was an understatement! I woke up Friday, had breakfast with my family and caught a plane to Chicago to meet up with my girls. Now, you wont get too much of the weekend details, but I’ll let you in on a few. Dubbed the 40 & Foine weekend….haaaaaa my friend Tina made up that theme…smh
Friday started with dinner at TAO (if you are ever near one, GO!) the food was amazing, drinks were phenomenal (from what I heard…lol) and the list goes on, it was an amazing experience I wont soon forget. We then headed over to the museum for another party that was taking place where we danced the night away to house music and lots of line dancing. We had a blast!
The weekend continued with food, food, food, fun, shopping, and more food. I stopped and weighed myself Sunday night and I promise you I gained 5 pounds this past weekend. To know me is to know that I love to eat! And my friends made sure I didnt miss a meal…lol
I did have my daughter with me to help me celebrate my weekend and so she kept me on my best behavior, but listen, that baby is like her mother, food, dancing, and drinks (well drinks for me) and we are good to go. Taking her with me was like taking my best friend, we had a blast, at least at the places she could go…lol
All in all, Chicago owes me NOTHING! All I wanted to do was bring in my 40’s with my friends and family and they all made sure that happened the week leading up to my birthday. I have the best circle of friends. The older I’m getting, the more I’m cherishing family and friendship. When you’re able to have both, count it as a blessing and thank God everyday for it.
