Since I've Been Gone...
Oh hey there, welcome to the new year! I've had a very chill last couple of weeks, thanks in part to a nasty cold I came down with after Christmas, and thanks to a relaxing schedule. We did get down to a few things besides hanging out with family and watching all of the Christmas movies we own over and over and over, including...
...Taking Jeff's siblings & sig others out to dinner at Ombra, and holy brussels sprouts! I order those little guys maybe too often, and these took the cake as the best I've ever had. Thanks to our waiter for making an error and giving us a second order on the house ;)
...Doing tons of post-Christmas shopping and returning, and somehow only managing to buy one pair of knee socks from the clearance rack. Le sigh.
...Going on a little dinner date with Jeff to Siena Tavern thanks to a gift card we got as a wedding gift, and errrrmygerrrrrrrd the gnocchi!! I seriously considered licking my plate ;)
...Finally going to see Star Wars! Now I'm not a super fan, but my brother made me watch the original three quite a few times back in the day. I know there are some mixed opinions out there, but I loved it - the perfect mix of nostalgia plus a new story.
...Entertaining up a storm at the new place, including hosting drinks with Jeff's family, lunch with my family, and a little NYE party (for which I couldn't help wearing my new sequined dress ;).
...Discovering that every restaurant in Logan Square closed for the holidays. After trying and failing at several places we wanted to try, we wandered into Dunlays, and let me tell you, that was an excellent accident. Afterwards we met up with a bunch of friends next door at Billy Sundays and enjoyed a few very fancy cocktails.
I hope you had a good one!
