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 – impromptu 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!
