Hi there! Happy Sunday!
I missed my photo weekend update last weekend because of the long weekend AND I’ve missed meal planning for oh, the past 2 months or so (gasp!) so I’m doing my best to get back onto the bandwagon today!
Friday included a shopping day with my friend, Nicole, at Chicago’s new Fashion Outlets of Chicago mall. I didn’t spend as much as it seems ;) And in case you’re wondering what I got, come back Tuesday for my Treat Yourself Tuesday post!
We had to stop for a little lunch to power our afternoon shopping. A glass of Sauvignon Blanc and a Greek salad did the trick!
After a full day of shopping, I got cleaned up for date night with Kyle! Dinner at Bridge House Tavern on the Chicago River made for amazing views. The food was just okay, I’d recommend going there for happy hour and soaking in the sites and sounds of the river instead.
Following dinner we strolled over to Bin 36 – a wine bar and restaurant that I have been wanted to check out FOREVER… or at least the past 4 weeks ;) Drink Wine – Live Well – Have Fun <– Heck yes! Their wine was tasty and quite affordable for being in the middle of Chicago, we will definitely be back! And look at my new bracelet, so pretty!
Saturday brought an early morning run followed by a hot walk with Mitchell to the farmers’ market. He thought the tomatoes smelled pretty good ;)
Saturday afternoon involved baking (weird!) and then a Cubs game with Kyle’s family. The Cubs lost (again, weird…) After the game we headed out to our new favorite local establishment, Jefferson Tap, to meet up with some friends for the Notre Dame – Michigan game. A margarita, some beers, a black olive pizza and a Michigan win later, we called it a night!
I haven’t meal planned in what seems like FOREVER so bear with me while I get back on track…
