This Weekend...


This weekend I...

...Had one of my college roommates in town for the weekend so we did some typical Chicago-y things, like a walk down the Mag Mile and drinks at Trump Tower.
...Went on a little dinner date at Kai Sushi where Jeff went a little overboard with his order. I'd only been there before with my friend Sarah (who goes alllll the time), and put it at about 50/50 odds that she would be eating dinner there too. We hadn't been seated more than five minutes before she walked in.
...Finally went to RM Champagne Salon, which is so adorable inside and had some really yummy cocktails. I want to go back in the summer though, when we can sit outside on their patio, rather than being crowded in to their tiny bar area.
...Went on a little makeup trying on binge in Sephora and considered buying everything in the gift section, you know, for myself.
...Had dinner at Three Aces with a couple of my college roommates, where we did a lot of gossiping and ordered an obnoxious amount of food - the ricotta gnocchi was amazing!!
...Did a little more wedding crafting and had a wedding decision date night where we knocked a lot of things off of the list.
...Went to get my hair cut and of course had to stop in to Molly's Cupcakes for a little fix. Oh chocolate chip cookie dough, I have dreams about you...
...Stopped in to Target to pick up a prescription and accidentally walked out with about half of the Christmas decor section...
...Had brunch at Dusek's, and determined I really should have just gotten about four orders of the breakfast potatoes - so. freaking. good.

I hope you had a good one!

  1. That's too funny that your friend walked into the restaurant after five minutes! Same problem when ordering sushi, never know how much will be enough/too much. It sounds like you had such a lovely weekend. This post really makes me want to hop on a plane and explore / eat and drink my way through Chicago!

  5. I feel like such a bad Chicagoan because I've never had drinks at the Trump- like wut. I need to get my fancy on and fix that asap. Also, Mollys Cupcakes is definitely THE best cupcakes in the city- though have you ever been to Bang Bang Bakery in Logan Square? I'd live there if they'd let me, haha. I love that you included links to all the fun restaurants and bars you've been to- I haven't been to half of them and definitely want to check them out!

    Awesome meeting another Chicago blogger :)
