weekend good things.

HAPPY MONDAY! What a great weekend - it was beautiful in Chicago and I got to spend lots of time outdoors (no boots or heavy coats required!)

On Friday night h surprised me with a trip to the outlet mall. I was determined to find some summery dresses and tops but I left with a pair of flip flops. He found polos, pants AND swim trunks! That's usually how it goes for us, it's rare that we both have a successful shopping trip. Ah well, better for the budget I suppose.
On Saturday we walked around our neighborhood -- I was ecstatic it was finally feeling like Spring and I could wear my favorite ballet flats. Since the sun was shining, I convinced H to take a few photos for my sidebar :) Later that day, H met up with a friend to watch a game and I had our place to myself. I indulged in a few of my favorite activities: Jillian Michael's yoga meltdown, a good book, a few magazines and a bright pink pedicureI made steak fajitas for dinner and we watched Twelve Years a Slave. It was such a moving story and really beautifully shot. And yes --- I cried and cringed quite at few scenes. 
On Sunday we went out to the burbs for Easter at my Aunt's house. It was really wonderful to see my family, play with my cousins and talk with my older brother and my future sister-in-law about their July wedding in the Bahamas. 

How was your weekend?
xo,

  10. So glad you had some nice weather finally! Charleston didn't get the nice weather memo but we also haven't been covered in snow for 3 months like you! I was going to get a pair of those Tieks before our trip, now I'm wishing I had because it was a good excuse to spend the money on them.. haha!

  11. Those Tieks remind me of the Lucky brand Emme flats. I have a few pairs and they're so comfy. Love the pale pink!
