This weekend I...
...Checked out the Art Institute After Dark with a bunch of friends. It's an event in the modern wing at the Art Institute with a DJ, live art, cocktails, and access to their current special exhibit. It was a fun change-up from our normal friend routine of dinner + drinks (+ usually more drinks) and a great excuse to dress up a little.
...Packed and packed and packed. We're moving next weekend, and oh my gosh do we have a lot of stuff. My mom and mother in law came by Saturday to help and it seems like we still barely made a dent in everything. Fingers crossed that we make it through the next week.
...After packing and packing and packing, we took our moms out to dinner at Mercat a la Planxa, our favorite tapas place. We ate all of the things, including some amazing braised rabbit pasta and our favorite, the padron peppers.
...Went to a big Friendsgiving party on Sunday afternoon. I made my mashed cauliflower again (the secret ingredient is TURNIP) and then proceeded to eat all of the things. I guess that's the theme of this weekend. Also, there are kids at our parties now. Adult life is weird.
Also, unrelated, but have you seen the new little badge in my sidebar for Dealspotr? I'm an ambassador for them, and post all of the sale codes I see around the web (mainly for the stores I love like Ann Taylor, LOFT, J. Crew Factory, Banana Republic, etc.). If you ever want to see what sales are going on, be sure to check out my page on the site: https://dealspotr.com/@kristinadoes.
