We love traveling to see friends and boy do we have some great friends in Chicago! On a recent marketing trip we were able to gather come of our blogging friends for a lunch at the Flagship American Girl store in Chicago. We gathered to see what's new in store and to celebrate friendship, the American Girl way.

We were so happy to meet up with friends from Alison and Susan from SoChic, Betsy and Kristen from LilStyleFile, folks we've admired for a while. We got to catch up with new friends like Jessica from StyleMeet Life, Agnes from Diaryofasahm, Bonnie from ChiilMom, Sarah from ToddlingAroundChicago--plus a real bonus--Susan from 5MinutesforMom was able to attend all the way from Vancouver. And the American Girl fun isn't just for moms, RaiJean took it all in for her goddaughter.
