Weekend Recap


Spring finally seems to have arrived here in Chicago, but I hesitate to say it because I don't want to jinx it.  The weather was sunny and warm throughout the weekend, which prompted me to be outside as much as possible.  Instead of being a tourist in our own city, we ended up walking around our neighborhood and then heading up north for a random visit to Evanston.  The Museum of Science and Industry will have to wait a bit, I believe.  

How were your weekends?  Relaxing, sunny and pleasant? I sure hope so.  President Obama's surprise announcement really put the cherry on top of a pretty lovely weekend.  Some highlights include ::

  • Post-work cocktails and wedding rehash with my favourite Brit!
  • Black Swan! Finally we got around to seeing it - it was every bit as good as I hoped it would be
  • Lunch at Rewster's Cafe - great tea and sandwiches
  • Visit to Evanston - The Spice House, Happy Husky Bakery (I got to pet some pretty huskies!) and randomly running into some people we know
  • Saturday night r&r - much needed for the mister
  • Sunday brunch with girls, followed by a random trip to Target! Did anyone score anything good from the Calypso St. Barth collaboration? 
  • Getting the mister to exercise with me outside
  • Wine on our back porch followed by watching Close Encounters of the Third Kind 

Be sure to check back here in a little bit - I've got a wonderful surprise for all of you!

Post-work cocktails are the best. I'm so jealous that you live in Chi! I love that city.

Hurray for spring weather! It sounds like you had a great weekend. It's so nice to be getting outdoors more, don't you think?
