link love.

Happy Friday!! It's going to be warm this weekend (YAHHH!). Tonight H and I have a netflix date night - we're watching The Best Man Holiday (obviously my pick but I'm making dinner so that makes it ok, right?!) On Saturday I have a brunch date with the girls and a haircut appointment (I am long overdue for a trim). And Mad Men is back this Sunday!! I'm also hoping to fit in some yoga and if it's warm enough a bike ride!

Here's a little weekend reading: 

-I have a bad case of #babyfever -- so it was refreshing to read about The No Kids Club


I have lived in Chicago for seven years (and grew up an hour from the city) sooo I think can admit that our city has a few problems. I laughed/cringed when I saw The 99 problems with Chicago.... but these ones really hit home:

3. That one nice day in March that gives you false hope
8. The coldest four months ever on record
22. Polar vortexes/vortices
28. The city’s segregated like a TV dinner
30. Sleepy train conductors
36. “Was that gunshots or fireworks?”
42. CTA platform heaters getting turned off two months too soon
52. 9.25% sales tax
59. People standing left on the escalator
72. The war between taxis and bikers
73. Our killer crime rates
75. Unannounced express trains
87. Clothes stained from street salt

-Okay, fine. I am a little OCD

-I am in love with these sandals + swim suit + cover-up! #SUMMER

-Have you taken the buzzfeed Mad Men Quiz? What character are you? I got Roger Sterling --ha! Love him but I'm a little surprised the quiz didn't make you choose your gender.

-If Jurassic Park had a Yelp page....

Thank you for all of your comments on my budget post

I loved reading all of your tips.

What are you up to this weekend?
xo,

  5. That sounds like a perfect to-do list! I've had an insane week so I'm hoping to relax a little. Tonight I'm checking out the opening night of a local brewery, that is conveniently in walking distance from my house. Saturday it's supposed to be 80 degrees here so I plan to be outside, all day! These legs of mine need some sun!
