Oops! I’ve been a little MIA since my last post. I was going to blog earlier this week about my own thoughts on SXSW, having once been an Austinite and experienced the fest firsthand, but I couldn’t really bring myself to write about it. Honestly, I’ve just been busy enjoying Chicago’s oh so fabulous weather since last week. It’s practically spring here!
The picture above is of Sue the T-Rex at the Field Museum. Alex and I had last Monday off together, so we decided to go on a little adventure that involved going to Kuma’s for lunch and heading to the museum for fun.
Things that have been making me happy this week include: spontaneous plans with Alex that resulted in us having dinner and beer in an outdoor patio, bonding with my roommates over dinner and sangria (are you sensing a pattern here?), girls’ night in with baking, wine, and Mad Men, doing a little bit of spring shopping (H&M was having a sale, you can’t really blame me), and planning for St. Patrick’s Day shenanigans tomorrow.
I’m looking forward to taking it easy tonight. Doing some laundry and hitting the gym are on my to-do list for when I get home from work. I’m getting up bright and early to take part in some festivities, which include a bloody mary bar (a brilliant idea by my friend Angela, who’s also hosting). I’m gonna need a good night’s rest. :)
Hope everyone has a really lovely weekend!
