This Weekend...

Oh hey guys!  I took an unexpected long weekend from the blog when I forgot to post on Friday morning.  You know, things happen.  Like going out to celebrate a friend's birthday, and then somehow tricking her into dancing on the bar.  Totally acceptable excuse for not posting.  So here's what's been going on since I saw you last:

This weekend I...

...Consumed what some might consider an inappropriate number of cupcakes.  I still go to the salon in my old neighborhood to get my hair cut, which conveniently allows me to pick up some of my favorite treats from Molly's on the way home.
...Celebrated with Jeff because he finally took part two of the CFA exam on Saturday (he's been studying for it for six months!!).  We went out to Zapatista and sat on the patio, where Jeff proceeded to drink an entire pitcher of sangria by himself and I somehow managed to order almost all cheese.  Totally normal.
...Went on a lady date to The Purple Pig, where we somehow managed to score a table with no wait despite the fact that it was super crowded, and ate pig tripe, feet, and ears.  Surprisingly good!
...Totally conquered child themes in Wordpress, turns out it's so much easier the second time around.
...Finally got to the point in my return to run program where I run more than I walk, and somehow managed to shave almost a minute off of my mile time from when I used to run regularly.  Or maybe Map My Run is just a dirty, dirty liar.
...Went out to brunch to Chicago Firehouse.  I don't normally do alcohol with brunch (that whole "hair of the dog" thing is not real for me) but they had strawberry belinis on the menu, so what was a girl to do?
...Read about half of The Lowland after realizing it's due back to the library this week.  Does this book ever start to get happy?
...Had dinner out in Oak Park with my family and Jeff's family.  Apparently everything I did this weekend involved food.  So, it was pretty successful, I'd say.

I hope you had a good one!
