Bon Jovi Concert & Day Eighteen

photoYesterday I spent the day in the Windy City.  It was a gloomy day, but those are some of my favorite days.  They are good days to lay in bed and watch lifetime movies all day to.  They are even better for the picture perfect background for a photoshoot.  And yesterday, it was a perfect day to spend with my older sister and mom.  My older sister lives in Chicago and since we would be out that way for a concert later that night, we decided to make a day of it.

I found a new route, I-55 from our house is amazingly fast and traffic was not so bad in the late morning hours and late evening on our way home.  Anyone who is traveling from Yorkville area to Chicago should take that route.

Once in Chicago, we had fun scoping out the new decor my sister has added to her cozy 1 bedroom apartment.  She has made it her own!!  Can I saw the girl has amazing style.  We all love out flea market and thrift store finds.

(How Amazing is this Chandelier?  She works at Anthropologie and gets amazing deals on amazing things like this!!)

We headed to The Boundary for a late lunch.  It was very quite at this time in the afternoon, but it was a perfect atmosphere for us to catch up on girl stuff.  We sat in a cozy booth next to a fire.  I recommend this place if your ever in the city and craving some spicy fish tacos.

We had to end things up with Liz, so we could make it to the Bon Jovi concert.  My best friend, Adrienne's mom had helped me get a pair of tickets for the concert.  I have always loved his music but never been to one of his concerts.  I can honestly say it is one of the best I have been to.  His energy and voice are out of this world. 

Here are some pictures and the Setlist from last night.  The pictures go with the song above it.
