This Weekend...

This weekend I...

...Went out with Jeff for date night at Due Lire in Lincoln Square. It was hot all weekend, but we still decided to sit out on their little patio because it's so cute. I never used to want to go out for Italian food, I think because it didn't seem exciting enough and I was poor and made a lot of spaghetti at home, but now I love it for dates. Really, I'm not sure what was wrong with younger Kristina, because really, is there anything better than a glass of wine and some fresh pasta?! 
...Put some serious hours into reading A Little Life, which honestly is one of the best books I've read in a long time. It's a novel about the lives of four friends from college, and it's really real and raw and emotional - so much better than all of the summer fluff novels I've been reading recently. Just know that the read time on my Kindle said 15 hours (!) so it's really a commitment.
...Had a few friends over with the intention of grilling and hanging out on the roof, but it was so hot out we ended up hiding inside and watching football until the sun went down! Seriously, I know it's only 90 degrees, but after a couple of weeks of fall weather I cannot handle the heat anymore. We still grilled, I've been working all summer on perfecting my barbecue chicken (I use this recipe) and I have to say, it's so good - especially now that I figured out how to stop setting the chicken on fire during the sear haha. I'm also a fantastic hostess because I forgot to plan for anything besides snacks and the chicken, but ended up making this zoodle recipe I've been having for lunch a lot recently and then a box of Kraft mac and cheese at the request of the guys!
...Put in a big order with J.Crew Factory for fall - super excited for this dress, this scarf and this flannel shirt to come in the mail! Oh and the 40 other things I ordered ;)

I hope you had a good one!!
