Fun weekend! Tim was out of town this weekend at the Weapons of Mass Creation festival in Cleveland, OH. I am COMPLETELY jealous. It just wasn't in the books for this year. I wanted to go so bad though. And to keep my mind from wandering to a typography-based jealousy world, I indulged myself in the company of my lady friends.
On Saturday we went to Ria's Bluebird in Grant Park. If you ever go there, get the breakfast burrito. Everything on the menu is delicious, but that messy, slop looking burrito is where everyone's heart is. After brunch, we took our sleepy stuffed bellies to the couch where we lounged and watched some shows (like Misfits!). I'm already caught up on Misfits, but one of my friends is still catching up.
I went back to Grant Park in the evening to meet with some other ladies friends. We ate at the charming Republic Social House. It's a dive bar with a rooftop patio that has a stunning view of the historic Oakland Cemetery. Sounds creepy, but I promise, it's just awesome.
Sunday began with brunch again, but this time at a French cafe called La Madeleine with Tim's parents. It was pretty cute that I got breakfast with them without Tim. It was the first time I've hung out with them without Tim or his brother, Mark. Niceee. I had a delicious mushroom swiss omelet.
After brunch I got some new duds. The Gap answered my craving for poppy colors, stripes, and peach khakis. Thus after my shopping, the only thing I could do was watch Downton Abbey when I got home. I'm all caught up with season 1. Season 2 needs to get on netflix soon or I might die of suspense.
Then I saw Childish Gambino (Donald Glover's music project) at Criminal Records with my lady friends, and we all made a dinner together after the show. We're talking delicious salmon, broccoli, and capri salad.
Also, I would like to say that winky faces are a tricky smiley to use. I learned my lesson last week after a simple text message went too risque. Don't ever put Sagmeister and a winky face in the same sentence in regards to his latest press release.
