The holiday season is upon us! Downtown Chicago turns into a magical place at this time of year. The illuminated trees and beautiful storefront windows instantly put me in a good mood. My roommates and I kicked-off the holiday season this weekend with a few fun activities.

IMG_0834-0.JPGEmily’s mom and sister came in for the Michigan Avenue lighting ceremony and parade. It was almost 50 degrees! (Warmest holiday parade I have ever attended.) After the parade, there were fireworks a few blocks away at the Chicago River. Scarlett loved the fireworks! It was so fun to have a little one along. She made everything 10x more exciting.

IMG_0832.JPGEmily, Alana and I hosted a Friendsgiving over the weekend. I am so thankful for all the girls at that table. We stuffed our faces with untraditional Thanksgiving food and played a few intense rounds of catch phrase. Fights always seem to break out during that game…

Now, off to Minnesota!

Ps. Sorry for the bad image quality..
