my {birthday} weekend in photos

so i turned the big 2-7 last friday and had a positively fabulous birthday weekend! my parents came into town on friday after i got off of work, and we met my sister sarah, her bf bradley, my friends dana & kristin, and chester in arlington heights for some fabulous sushi. it was yummy! after dinner we met a few more friends at finn mccools for a few drinks :) buuuuut i didn't get photos of that, whoops.

on saturday we got all dressed up and headed downtown for a par-tay! we hung out at sarah's for a drink before heading over to vertigo sky lounge. i had never been there before, it was so cool! we had a table near the back of the lounge with an incredible view of downtown. the weather was gorgeous, and we were able to hang outside on the rooftop for a while, which was pretty awesome. it was such a blast, and i was happy that everyone had a great time. 

thank you to my incredible family and my wonderful friends for making my 27th birthday better than i could have imagined! and a BIG thank you to chester for making everything possible! he was so great about planning everything for saturday, and i couldn't be more greatful! thanks so much hunnie! :D x 100, haha.
