How in the world is the weekend already over? I spent more time in Chicago this past weekend to celebrate the birthdays of both of my amazing parents!
On Friday, we went out to dinner for my Dad’s birthday. We got to sit outside and it was so beautiful out. Chicago summers are fantastic. Besides the fact that I ordered a martini at dinner that tasted like a cough drop, the dinner was fabulous! It was a roasted chicken, veggies and mashed potatoes kinda night for me.
Then I got to give my dad all the cool presents I got him 🙂 He always gives us funny gifts so I thought I’d have my fun with it too. I got him the books: How To Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting To Kill You and The Economics Book. He also got some Astronaut ice cream. I didn’t get to try that stuff but it looked pretty crazy! Gotta love Urban Outfitters and all their fun gifts. I love that store!
Saturday we spent the afternoon lounging at the pool. It was so nice to finally just relax and soak up the sun!
Say hello to sweet little Parker! I hope he’s not plotting to kill anyone like it says in that book 😉
Then Saturday we went to the Burger Festival in Chicago. We LOVE street fests. They are so much fun!
Saturday night we drove to spend time with my mom for her birthday. We went out to a Mexican restaurant and I devoured a chicken burrito. YUM!
My mom got some yummy IsaLean Pro since she was almost out and a cute scarf organizer for the bazillion scarfs she has in her closet!
On Sunday we ate once again and then made the trip back home. Overall it was a weekend filled with great family, delicious eats and fun in the sun. It was the perfect weekend for me!!! Now back to reality and time to tune in on my diet and gym time!
