CHICAGO! A woo hoo!!! We are SO EXCITED about yesterday’s news and are just beside ourselves that we are moving to the Windy City. A huge congrats to my fabulous, handsome, and smart husband who got his first pick of internships. We visited Chicago in March 2008 and again this past January and just fell in love with the city. (See the post from our January trip here.) I feel so blessed to have had support from such wonderful friends, family, and blogger friends. You all are incredible, and we are so appreciative for all your thoughts, prayers, and warm wishes.
I’ve included a few pictures below from our “match party” on Friday. Though we didn’t know where we were headed at that point, we knew we were headed somewhere, and that in itself was a reason to celebrate!
Me and two of my BFFs, Norma and Natalia. (Please excuse the ponytail, I had to get ready in 15 minutes which is close to impossible for me.)
Congrats Matt! I am so proud of you :)
BFFs and new interns. I am going to bawl my eyes out when we say goodbye to Miguel, and I’m pretty sure Matt will be crying harder than me. Life won’t be the same without this guy around everyday.
I love my friends :)
Hahhahahha, so one Miguel’s guy friends had these ridiculously oversized glass (which I personally thought were so super precious on him) and I decided to try them on halfway through the night. Posing for a picture, everyone decided I looked like Taylor Swift from the “You Belong with Me” video. See below.
Glad to know I look like a country/pop star portraying a nerdy teen. I scare myself sometimes :)
This picture makes me laugh one due to my dorkiness, and two, because of why we took this picture. I won’t go into too much detail here, but let’s just say we had to work at 8:00 am the next morning, someone offered to buy Norma a drink, and she turned it down. I was a very proud mama :)
We are moving to Chicago, I can’t stop saying it, woo hoo! I am so excited to share this journey with my best friend.
So there you have it, the next year of our life has a firm direction, and we could not be more thrilled! If any of yall know anything about Chicago, available housing, shopping hotspots, local restaurants, etc. let me know. I’m already planning for the fun that we are about to have. Thanks again for your fabulous support, it means so much to me! Chicago here we come!
