weekend review

This weekend…

Mr.C & I took a quick trip down to our hometown in Illinois.

I spent Friday afternoon with shopping and catching up with my mom+grandma (mom had to detour + stop at the side of the road to hunt for fossils). Friday afternoon I met up with friends and chatted the night away.

Mr.C took a day trip Friday to Soldier Field for the Chicago Bears’ Draft Party (his belated birthday gift). Drinks, food, tours of the stadium & locker room, meeting some of the players, throwing passes down on the field – he was in sports fan heaven!


Saturday, I went thrifting with my mom and scored this awesome chair for our bedroom. It’s a mid-century valet/dressing chair with built-in hanger, wooden train, and hidden storage in the seat. It’s in great condition and was only $12.35! In the meantime, Mr.C spent time with his family (some even came in from Indiana –ย impromptuย reunion!) and then saw his sister off to her junior prom.

Saturday night, we met back up for dinner, played cards with friends, then hit the town for a few drinks.


Sunday morning we brunched, played with the niece & nephew, and enjoyed our last few moments with the fam before driving the 6 hours back in Minnesota.

The weather all weekend was gorgeous and although we did drive through a short thunderstorm on our way home – it was thrilling to know that the weather in MN was just as warm & beautiful. In fact we slept with the windows open last night! Hurray Spring!


So that’s what we’ve been up to. Hope you all had a lovely weekend.

Wishing you a great upcoming week as well!
