I was looking through the piles and piles of plaid shirts in my closet the other day, and realized I'd been ignoring all of my perfectly nice blue and white blouses that I wore on repeat last spring. It's February now and I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel of winter, so light and bright is exactly the direction I want to go! Pairing a white sweater with an (almost) white button-down is the perfect way to start working in my favorite spring tops without freezing to death. A frozen Kristina on the el wouldn't be cute. 

This week has been particularly crazy for me, both at work and at home, but I'm powering through it because it's also been really fun! It's restaurant week here in Chicago, which I decided to give a try this year. Let me tell you, I'm hooked! So basically, just about every great restaurant in Chicago is offering prix fixe meals with either three courses for $33 or four courses for $44 (and some places offer lunch specials too!). I've known about restaurant for years but I always heard it was busy and crazy and impossible to get reservations, so I just ignored it. Um, wrong! We went to Nico Osteria for dinner on Monday and it was like a normal Monday night out. No crowds, fast service, and really great food! I think as long as you avoid an 8pm reservation on a Friday or Saturday it's just like any other night out. 

Nico Osteria was freaking amazing, by the way. I had a sweet onion ravioli for one course and a breaded whitefish for another and both were so good. I also snagged a few bites off of Jeff's plate and his was all great too! Jeff's dad actually bought a house a few blocks away and is in the process of renovating it, and once he moves in that's definitely where we'll be meeting up with him for dinner! As opposed to the Original Pancake House that's across the street, which is what Jeff suggested ;) 

We're continuing our restaurant week with dinner tomorrow night at Tanta. I've never been before and I've heard great things, so wish us luck!
