The big bonus was when MARY SAID SHE WAS GOING TO BE IN TOWN...and she offered to actually spend the day with us. AND PLAN THE WHOLE THING...
To review, Mary met us at our hotel at Noon, and we took the City Bus to the Art Institute, then we had High Tea a the Russian Tea Room,
|Then she put us in a cab and we are headed -- where??|
|TO HER VERY OWN CONDO..!!|
|She and Lilly picked up her mail.|
|Then, went up an elevator, down a hall, and opened the door.|
|If you are a fan of Paper Girl (Mary's wonderful blog) -- you'll recognize this dresser!|
|Lilly loved her eclectic furniture.|
|We even got a tour OF HER CLOSET (and all those high heels!)|
|We even got a picture with Pendennis!!|
|My favorite picture of the entire weekend...|
|Lilly took this picture of a mouse on top of a mouse.|
|And, yes, people, THIS IS WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS...|
Lilly doesn't even know how lucky she was on this most perfect day...but, when she is older -- it will hit her.
And -- hey -- OUR MOST PERFECT DAY IN THE BIG CITY ISN'T OVER YET!!
