weekend good things.

Happy Monday! My weekend flew by but it was a fun one with sunny weather and lots of good eats!!

- I was able to ditch my heavy winter boots + coat this weekend and wear lighter shoes. HOORAY let's hope the warmer weather is here to stay. 

-On Friday night we watched Dallas Buyers Club (or DBC according to comments on Friday's post -- you guys are so cute). I was really impressed with the acting and I think Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto both deserved their Oscars. It was an interesting story but not something I see myself watching more than once. 

-Saturday H and I went out to the burbs to have lunch with our friends in downtown St. Charles. The city has the cutest little downtown full of shops and restaurants (and about 20 minutes away from where I grew up). We ate at Town House Books -- a cafe/book store combo -- SUCH a great idea especially with the disappearance of book shops. It was fun to browse through books while we waited for our table.

-On Sunday I met friends for brunch at Kingsbury Street Cafe and ordered lemon blueberry pancakes. OMG. I want another stack now! They were so fluffy and refreshing...I'll defiantly be back again. 

- After brunch we went shopping at Nordstrom Rack, Gap, Express, Jcrew, Crate & Barrel and Land of Nod (just to browse!). I found a BKR bottle and bought another GapFit breathe racerback workout tank. I love those tanks -- they are super comfortable to workout in. I also bought the stripe tank I had my eye on at Express. And picked up a salt grinder from Crate & Barrel (it matches the pepper mill that we got for the wedding). 

- I spent the rest of the afternoon doing some yoga (still loving it!) and working on my April Houzz ideabook (I'll share that later this week). I made Pasta Fagioli for dinner - it was a great light meal to end the weekend.

How was your weekend?
xo,

  14. Ahhhh, I've been eyeing a similar striped tank at J.Crew, but it was a bit out of my price range. I hope the Express version is a little more reasonable. I need that tank!
