Man, it's funny how you look forward to something for months then it flies by. I can't believe the weekend went so fast. It's like I blinked my eyes and I was back on a plane to NYC. The trip was a the perfect little get away from the city and work that I needed. I got incredibly lucky with the weather in Chicago over the weekend. It was so perfect. My best friend Ariel had a couple of surprises for me on Friday which included a boat tour on the lake of downtown Chicago then later on a day was a yummy yummy chocolate tour which included Glazed and Infused, MORE, and Vosges. So many yummy treats!! We also hit up the BHLDN store. Which I have been dyeing to go till since I booked this trip in April. By the way, if you don't follow me on instagram, I stalked BHLDN bride & groom riding around the city promoting their Pop Up Shop in NYC (which is happening this week!) last Wednesday and won a $200 gift card!! What total blessed luck! I ended up buying my beautiful headband that I have been eyeing forever. I wish I could share the photos with me and the headband but I don't want my fiancee to see it. I wish there was a BHLDN here in the city. The girls that worked there were SUPER sweet. Anyway, then we had a much needed girls night at her friend's place which including deep dish pizza, cupcakes from MORE, and facials. Saturday we totally chilled went to a yummy brunch spot then sat out on the lake for a bit. Sunday before I left I ended up running around with her to cheer on her friend, Kara, at the Chicago Marathon. It was a neat way to see parts of Chicago I probably would never get to see. I do need to get out to Chicago during the summer, the lake is so beautiful! And their beaches are so beautiful. The last and only time I was out there was in January where the City was covered in snow so I didn't get to see how beautiful their lake front really was. She's really lucky to live so close to the lake. Hopefully I'll get back out there soon.

How was your weekend?

  3. Honestly I've never been to Chicago but it's way up on my list! I'm surprised it's still so sunny though, it's freezing here in Germany!
