Guess who took the whole weekend off?

Monday, July 09, 2012

Aside from answering a few emails, I took the whole weekend off and it was magical. Game night, shopping, painting, bars, brunch, a long walk, and dinner with a friend. One of the best weekends I've had in a long time. Let's talk about it.

It started with game night at Alaina's apartment followed by pool and shuffleboard at a bar.

Spent a little time online while I had my bedroom repainted. Here's a peek at my new office. I love the view.

Farrow and Ball's Cabbage White. Isn't it beauuuutiful?! Goodbye sea foam/nursery green. That was an epic fail. 

Shopping with Lauren. Sales are fun. Spent $50. Saved over $100.

Cheated on Paleo at Hub 51. So worth it. Annnnd...I'll be going to CrossFit every day this week.

Stopped into Nordstrom for my favorite moisturizer and picked up this Cosmic Raspberry lipstick
Nail polish - Color Club Jackie Oh! Thank you, Katia!

Walking and talking with my friend Jess Constable.

Can I just take a minute to say how lucky I am to have Jess as a friend? She is one of the sweetest and most genuine people I know, and she happens to be one of my favorite people to talk to. Best advice giver ever.  I love that girl. And are you seeing this view? I love Chicago and can't believe I live here. 

And let us not forget that I have an IL license, so it's official. I'm practically from Chicago now.

  12. From one Chicagoan to another, I'm so glad you are loving this city! And I had to laugh... Is that a bar cart next to your desk in your office? On most days, I would find that to be a pleasantly convenient place for my cocktails;-) And it is rather Mad Men!
