Madhouse on Madison

Dave and I had a little Sunday Funday yesterday!  We began our morning with some engagement pictures, courtesy of my dad and his lovely assistant (my mom), and then headed downtown Chicago.

Our first stop was Roots, one of our very favorite restaurants down the street from where we used to live.  We usually would have dinner at least one night a week there, so we’ve been missing it like crazy since we moved!

I, of course, ordered my usual creation from the “Build A Salad” menu.

Baby mixed greens, roasted red peppers, red onions, tomatoes, pistachios, goat cheese, grilled chicken and cilantro vinaigrette.  Oh, how I’ve missed this salad! 😉

After hanging out at Roots for a couple hours, we headed over to the “madhouse” (aka United Center).

We met up with our friends, Will and Julie, and Julie’s sister and mom, and also ran into several other familiar faces.

The Hawks played great!  Upon arriving at the stadium, everyone was handed red Stanley Cup Playoff towels and every time the Hawks scored, the crowd went wild!
