Lexie, Kathryn, Ben, and Some Big Bowls of Ramen

Lexie and Kathryn arrived in Chicago yesterday! After work Ben and I went to my place, freshened up, and we drank some Dark & Stormies as we began to catch up on the last 6-ish months with L and K. Boy there was so much good girl talk between the four of us! After little persuasion we decided to go to Urban Belly for some delicious bowls of Ramen. K and L had both read about my Urban Belly obsession over here on my blog, and it made perfect sense to go there and nosh on the real thing. There was a twenty minute wait when we got there, but knowing that UB is BYOB, we decided to wander around the neighborhood in search of libations, which turned out to be a major fail. But after we were seated and settling into our soups, a friendly guy at our communal table offered us two bottles of his already opened wine!! What a wonderful surprise!

The food was great, the company was even better. We talked blogs, boyz, school, jobs, shopping, basically a little bit of everything. Oh and when we got home, we put on an episode of The OC, and us ladies painted our nails.

SO EXCITED TO GET INTO SOME GOOD GRUB AND ADVENTURE TODAY.
