This Weekend...

This weekend I...

...accomplished exactly zero items on my to-do list. I told you, it happens every time.
...met up with my friend Jaclyn to try on bridesmaid dresses after work on Friday for a wedding we're co- maids of honor in this October. We realized earlier in the week that the store we were buying them from, Weddington Way, was shutting down (noooo!) and could see the inventory dropping for the dresses we wanted, so we basically had to buy them this weekend. We both ended up getting the last of the style and colors that we wanted in our sizes! The bonus was that since the store is closing, we ended up getting the dresses on sale.
...after dress shopping we ended up having a couple of glasses of wine at Tavern on Rush, which turned into dinner. They have the cutest little outdoor seating area with big heaters - it reminded me of being back at the cafes in Paris! So really it was the perfect choice for a chilly spring evening - we got to sit outside but also not freeze to death.
...saw that LOFT was having another sale, and ended up ordering this cute little embroidered mini skirt! I mean, how freaking adorable is it?! Not sure how I missed it during the last sale (you know, last week) but I'm glad it's making its way to me now! I also ended up ordering this cute little travel wrap I had been eyeing the last go-round, I think it'll be the perfect light layer for spring.
...drove out to Brookfield Zoo for a zoo day with my sister, niece, and mom. My niece Mae is now to the point where she's actually interested in looking at the animals, but more interested in quickly marching through each exhibit so it was a much speedier visit than I'm used to ;)
...had a date night in with Jeff and rented The Greatest Showman. I'm a musicals person so obviously I was the driving factor in that choice. I'd heard mixed reviews, and I have to say I definitely wasn't wowed but I also didn't think it was a bad movie. Fun and entertaining but I'm not going to watch it again or listen to the soundtrack nonstop.
...went out to the park to play a little tennis with Jeff! I'm sure I've mentioned this at some point, but Jeff comes from a tennis family. In case you haven't noticed, I am not a sports person - I still like to close my eyes when trying to hit or catch a ball. We're going on a trip with them this summer which always involves a lot of tennis, so I'm trying to brush up on my skills. I'm happy to report that only about a quarter of the balls I hit went flying off in a completely unexpected position!

Here's hoping you had a good one!
