A whole LOLLA anticipation...

I am super excited about this weekend for a lot of reasons, the most obvious being that it's Lollapalooza 2012!  This will be my third year in a row going all three days...let's just say I'm spending this week mentally preparing myself for what's to come - all good things of course.

I'm also excited because my best friend will be in town from New York.  She moved to NYC shortly after we graduated college and a few months before I moved to Chicago, about five years ago.  As we've grown and changed through our very different - yet satirically similar - lives and experiences, we've done a commendable job of keeping the friendship strong and intact.  Last year was her first time attending Lollapalooza and it went down in the books as one of the best weekends of our lives.  As she put it, "We have to do this every year until we're like...60!"  Now that's a challenge I could get on board with.

I'll be posting snap shots of our Lolla escapades and the in between - we're having dinner at Acadia Thursday night and I know there will be plenty of CBA morning recovery stops and Chow Town sessions along the way.

We've also been lucky enough to score VIP passes for Lolla this year.  It's a first for us & it's going to be amazing, but we do plan on spending the majority of our time out in the crowd with our peeps - come rain or shine.  This weekend is sure to be another crazy, fun adventure - so stay tuned!
