Weekend Recap

It was quite the relaxing weekend for us.  Friday night I hit the gym straight from work.  I got in 4 miles on the treadmill and a 45 minute class called total body blast.  It was a different instructor than I usually take so the format wasn't what I am used to, but either way great workout.  That has to be a record for me for a Friday night.  Usually I take my Friday's off, but my Thursday was weak so I thought I could use one more good sweat before the week was over.  Friday night we stayed in and watched stand up comedy on Netflix. Netflix has a lot of great comedy shows and they always seem to keep in updated.

Saturday morning was walked to our favorite West Loop breakfast place, Wishbone.  It was a gorgeous day and we got to sit out on their patio so that was perfect.  There happened to be an art show right outside Wishbone so we checked that out afterwards too.  A lot of really cool art, but a bit out of our price range, at least for now.  There was a really cool place called Then & Now which merged together prints for 1905 and then the same Chicago location in 2014; I think that one was my favorite.  We ran a bunch of errands all day on Saturday which was really productive.  Dentist, West Elm, Sephora, Banana, Nordstroms, Froyo, Anthopology, JCrew, Target, Nordstrom Rack -- I think that might be a record for me!  We even ended up going to the grocery store late Saturday night to avoid the crazy crowds that are there are Sundays.  I wasn't kidding when I said we were productive.  We took the bus up to North Ave, because the traffic was just insane that we didn't feel like fighting it all day.

Nike's waiting on the bus!
Late lunch/early dinner at Nando's PERi PERi - we are officially regulars there!

You can take the girl out of Iowa, but you can't take the Iowa out of the girl!

New used bookstore opened right around the corner from us! 

Look how packed City Winery was on a Saturday night! 

The weather in Chicago this weekend was amazing!
Our Sunday was a much more relaxing day than Saturday.  It was a gloomy morning with some scattered thunderstorms on Sunday morning so it was a good excuse to lay around and relax.  We went on quick run in the afternoon when the sun came out, but otherwise really didn't leave the apartment!  We ordered our favorite Roots Pizza, as we do most Sundays and watched golf and preseason football - I'm surprised I didn't fall asleep.  A Sunday well spent brings a week of content!

Rainy Sunday morning in Chicago.

I have some new posts I'm hoping to get up this week so stay tuned!
