Hello from Evansville, Indiana!
I’m out of town for an audit this week and spending a couple nights in this glamorous hotel room. We arrived late yesterday afternoon and had dinner at a local German restaurant called Gerst Haus. Unfortunately, dinner was followed by homework back at the hotel room.
The final for my Economics class takes place next Thursday and has completely snuck up on me. I haven’t prepared one bit so I’m scrambling to fit in any studying I can throughout the next week and a half. Not fun!
Enough of the boring homework talk, let’s chat about the Bridal Expo I went to with these lovely ladies on Sunday.
Darcy, Ashley and I met for brunch at Egg Harbor before attending the Bridal Expo in Downers Grove.
I fell in love with their coffee mugs and just had to buy one! I later found out the mugs are all handmade by a potter in St. Paul, MN and are then engraved with the restaurant’s name and specific location.
With full bellies, we made it over to the expo to look around. None of us knew what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised.
Vendors lined the banquet hall and were giving away lots of free trips and services. I especially enjoyed looking at the centerpieces to get ideas on the different styles I liked or didn’t care for.
Other vendors included tuxedo rental companies, DJs, limo services, florists, travel agencies, bridal registry stores, bakeries, wedding gown shops, etc.
One of our favorite tables was a bakery in Elmhurst giving away mini cupcakes which were to die for! The other favorite had to be the french fry bar sponsored by a local hotel promoting its food. They served both regular and sweet potato fries, cheese sauce and lots of different seasonings and sauces for dipping! Delish!
Finally before rolling out of the expo absolutely stuffed, we pitstopped to snap a few glamour shots! I’ve certainly had my fair share of photo booths this weekend!
Sunday Funday!! 🙂
