This weekend...

This weekend I...

...Went to Ravinia on Friday night to celebrate my dad's birthday.  Unlike the last time we went, my mom was in charge, which means instead of a blanket and some sammies from French Market, we had chairs, a table, tons of snacks, and even a candle for ambiance.
...And then got stuck on the train coming home for an extra hour because a semi hit one of the bridges we were supposed to go over.  Yuck.
...Finally got some work done on our wedding website!  Our photographer let us know that we should have our engagement photos back in about a week, so it's time to actually get moving.  I just need to do a little more to make the site responsive and pop in the new pictures, and it'll be done.
...Had some friends over for dinner, lots of wine, and Cards Against Humanity.  We grilled some flank steak (using this marinade) and it was freaking amazing.  Seriously.  Sorry Jeff, but flank steak may just be the love of my life.
...Cooked breakfast at home for the first time in a couple of months.  When I first moved in with Jeff we made breakfast at least once a weekend, but that's fallen by the wayside lately.  It was nice to bring the tradition back.
...Hit up our favorite neighborhood pizza spot for a little sausage, onion, and green pepper.

I hope you had a good one!

  1. Looks like such a nice weekend! Cooking breakfast is so nice to do on the weekends - but I don't always do it either.

  2. Sounds like a winning weekend! (minus the train mishap. Glad everything was okay!)

  3. Your weekend sounds fun! (um and that pizza sounds delicious!)

  4. I love being able to cross things off the list, definitely my motivator!

  5. For real, luckily we're coming up on another weekend soon!

  6. Ugg the train thing was not my favorite way to end the night, but the rest of the weekend definitely made up for it!

  7. Yeah I need to take the time to do it more often!
