This Weekend...

This weekend I...

...ran to Nordstrom to return a few things (basically the story of my life) and realized it was the release day for the Gal Meets Glam collection, so I decided to try on a few. Most of the dresses are not my style (a little too girly and southern) but there are a few that are really cute. I had heard mixed things about the sizing, but I found them to be true to size for your regular dress size (typically larger than other clothing which can use vanity sizing). I ended up ordering this ruffled maxi and this casual gingham dress - excited for them to come in the mail this week!!
...carpooled up to the suburbs with my friend Katie for our high school friend Sarah's baby shower - I can't believe that little lady is expecting!! Sarah and her husband have moved all over the place since getting married so I hadn't seen her in what seems like forever, so it was so fun to catch up! The shower was at Milwalky Taco in Libertyville, and if you ever find yourself in Libertyville for some reason, you should definitely go. The tacos were phenomenal (I went for a chorizo/egg and crispy pork belly - yum!!) and they had a really fun brunch menu, plus a patio for when the weather ever accepts that it's spring.
...went out for a big group dinner to Las Tablas for a little Colombian food (and lots of sangria ;) on Saturday night, and you guys, the steak was so freaking good!! A bunch of us got combination plates, but I wouldn't even mess with that if I went again - all steak, all the way. We followed up dinner with a dive bar, and then I'm pretty sure I complained that I wanted a cocktail and somehow got the whole group to head to Kite String, which has a bunch of really good cocktails that come out of "bubblers" which is not a term I've ever heard before, but they're basically on tap - I loved the passion fruit punch!
...finished reading Brain on Fire, and you guys, it was so good and so freaky at the same time. It's about a young woman who gets a disease that includes mental health symptoms, and the fight to get a diagnosis and heal. The part that really freaked me out was that people with her disease can exhibit symptoms like the little girl in The Exorcist!! Well, you know, minus the head spinning all the way around and the levitating stuff.
...thought I was going to have a lazy Sunday, but ended up realizing at the last minute that we had a reservation at Summer House. It's such a great place to go to pretend it's warm outside - the decor and giant sunlight make you feel like you're at the beach! We followed up lunch with a little shopping on Armitage, and our lunch drinks convinced us to basically buy Jeff a whole new wardrobe at Bonobos. It was a fun role reversal for us ;)
