New Years Eve 2014

January 1st, 2015 · No Comments

This year’s New Years Eve looked very different than previous years, as you can see. Makai’s daycare had the popular children’s performer, Mary Macaroni, in to perform and do a countdown to the new year at noon. Then the kids were all released early.

Later on we went to Jen and Chad’s house and stuck it out as long as Makai could make it (until about 9:30 p.m.). Maybe next year he’ll make it longer (or we’ll get a babysitter). This was the 9th year we’ve spent New Years Eve at Jen and Chad’s house!

Josh & Liz’s Wedding Weekend

Sign of a good wedding weekend: I’m STILL tired!

Dallas was a groomsman in Josh and Liz’s wedding and it all kicked off with rehearsal on Friday night. I didn’t actually go to the rehearsal, but met up a bit later at the top of the Tribune Tower at The Crown for cocktails (many) and appetizers. Though it was chilly outside, everyone braved it to go outside and take a look around. The views are amazing and so is the architecture. I used to work across Michigan Avenue from the Tribune Tower and it was really interesting to see the opposite view and to see the Trib Tower architecture from the inside out.

The wedding was at The Ivy Room. The ceremony was short and beautiful. The bride and the bridesmaids all wore white. The groom and the groomsmen were all tuxed up. I could not get over how adorable Liz’s niece, the flower girl was! And especially later on when all she wanted to do for hours was dance and twirl in her dress. I loved the part of the ceremony where the officiant revealed to Josh some things Liz said and vice versa.

The dinner was good, the dancing was great. After the wedding we kept going and it was quite a late night. I’ll leave it at that! Congratulations to Josh and Liz (and Konrad)!
