This weekend I...
...Went on a little day trip with my niece Mae and the family to the Brookfield Zoo. My mom had a long-standing tradition while we were growing up of always going to the zoo during spring break, and about 90% of the time it was freezing. This year was no exception! It still was really fun to see all of the animals and pretend that Mae was the reason we were at the zoo, even though she's a little too little and mostly just liked looking at the colorful tropical fish. I guess next time we'll just take her to the pet store ;)
...Grabbed dinner with Jeff at O'Shaughnessy's Public House, and oh.my.gee. So good. It had been recommended to us by a couple of people, including my Irish co-worker so we decided to swing by on Saturday night. It was packed and we waited a loooong time for our food, so the extra drink or two I ingested may be partially speaking here, but it was seriously one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Flank steak, gouda, and jalepeno aioli? Please feed me that and only that for the rest of my life.
...Got my new bedding in the mail, and oh my gosh you guys, it is the best thing ever. After hating and returning a set from West Elm last weekend I decided to spring on this pretty watercolor print duvet and tasseled quilt. I almost stayed in bed all day on Sunday haha.
...Met up with some friends at Southport Lanes to play a little pool, and very quickly remembered that I am absolutely terrible at pool. It turns out Jeff is pretty bad too (which is surprising because he's usually pretty athletic!) so we made a pretty fun team.
...Got completely obsessed with watching brush calligraphy videos on Instagram (it's mesmerizing to watch!). I've been trying it myself with a set of Crayola markers and it may be my new favorite thing.
...Remembered it was our dating anniversary, and decided to celebrate even though we have a *new* anniversary now. I'm typing this as I get ready for dinner at Bistro Campagne, so fingers crossed it's good!
I hope you had a good one!
