Lately


Last week felt like one of the busiest/longest weeks of my life. Here's a little recap.

Went to CrossFit 4x. I wanted to go a 5th time on Sat but listened to my doc and am keeping it to 4x for now. I've been overdoing it a little bit–my body needs some rest.

I organized my apartment and finally got started on my gallery wall last week. I still plan on switching a few things out, but it's coming along. Next on the list: new pillows, new rug (?), styling my mantle, new bedside tables and lamps, and a little table or cabinet for my hallway. Determined to have this place finished by the end of November.

Alaina and I were featured in Chicago Home and Garden Magazine.

Photo shoot for The Everygirl. A special thanks to Boutique Bites, Stoffer Photography, and our amazing interns for making the shoot possible.

Nate Berkus book signing at Jayson Home and Garden. We did not become BFFs as planned, but he did sign my book.

Gilt Groupe warehouse sale with Alaina, Kat, Jenn Lake (read her Everygirl feature here), Lauren, Jena, January, and for the second time that day–Elaina of Boutique Bites.

Dinner at RPM Italian with Amanda. After dinner, I turned myself into a cat (or mouse–verdict is still out on that one) in the bathroom and went to a Halloween party. I spent $15 on ears and a tail and wore those with and wore black leggings, a tank, and over the knee boots.

Lady date at the Joffrey Ballet with Gina. It was beautiful!

Caitlin is sharing her story on The Everygirl today. You do not want to miss this one. That girl holds such a special place in my heart. I am so proud of her!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. And it's Monday. Here we go...
