Weekend Recap

Another great weekend in the books.  It definitely finally feels like fall and I was finally not too sore anymore.

Friday night we usually go straight to pajamas and order in but there is a new restaurant that we have been wanting to try so we decided to venter out and check it out.  It is called Parlor Pizza Bar and has a huge outdoor patio which will be really cool in the summer, but it is already too cold here in Chicago to sit outside.  There was a 25 minute wait when we got there but they said we could sit right away if we wanted to sit at the pizza bar which we were ok with so we sat right down.  Our seats actually ended up being really cool, because we could watch them make all of the pizzas. The inside of the restaurant was really cool and we had great service which I love.

We shared the Brussels sprout appetizer and a Sgt. Pepper pizza.  Both were very good - the pizza was a little greasy for my liking.  I don't think we would order from there to pick up but the atmosphere was very cool so I could see us going back with a group. 

Saturday morning we laid around and continued our Wonder Years obsession for a while before deciding we needed to get outside. We made our way to the new shopping area in the south loop - Nordstrom rack, tj maxx, world market.  The parking was a huge pain but it was nice to get out and do a little shopping. We didn't end up buying much, but we really weren't looking for anything in particular.  K found some nice ties at Nordstrom rack and I stocking up on some tights for the winter.
When we got back we headed to Mariano's for lunch - I love their food bar for lunch. We ran a few more errands and then spend the rest of the night relaxing before our night out.

Saturday night we had plans to meet my old coworkers for dinner. One of them is moving to DC, which makes me so sad! We had an 830 reservation at tortious club and met before for drinks. We ended up sitting at our dinner table until 1am catching up! It was so good to catch up with them - I definitely miss working with them everyday. I am going to have to plan a trip to DC next year once they are all settled!

Love this dress from Gap - I have it in two colors!
Sunday started slowly as we were feeling the effects of the night before.  We eventually got the energy to work out and grocery shop. The rest of the day was spend getting ready for the week. I swear these weekend just keep going faster and faster!
