I hope you all had a great weekend. The weather here was beautiful and I feel a little redundant saying that after the past couple weekends. It looks like the temperatures may drop soon enough, so the longer I can go without a jacket, the better. The weekend wasn’t crazy, but there were some adventures.
Saturday Neil and I woke up and wandered around the city. Like last week, we found a new coffeehouse, Citygrounds, in Lincoln Park.
I wanted to wander around the Green City farmer’s market, but we made a quick stop in Hotel Lincoln to reminisce my very first visit to Chicago last year before we moved here. It happened to be the same weekend as the Chicago Marathon and it was incredible to be so close to it. Wishing everyone running it this year all the luck!
SO MANY PEPPERS. I loved it, but am still recovering from that donut at Glazed and Infused.
We decided to walk back home since it was such a nice day and made a stop at a second farmer’s market on Division Street. Like I mentioned a couple days ago, I have been back on the kombucha train lately, so we stopped off at work so I could grab one on our way.
I whipped up a quick lunch of chile lime burgers from Trader Joe’s as well as one of their superfood pilafs. Super fast.
Sunday we grabbed some groceries and a piece of art that we are planning on adding to the living room. We have a contractor coming this weekend to do lots of work, so I will be sure to share with you some before and after pictures. Since moving here, we still haven’t hung anything on the walls or settled more into our place. Since it’s time to be adults and all that fun stuff, we decided to finally get a move on.
It looked colder outside than it actually was, so I started craving warm noodles. Warm noodles in our adult house turns out to be ramen, which we specifically went out to buy. We did add in some steak tips though, so that makes it a little fancier, right?
After lunch we watched movies and football and had another relaxing Sunday afternoon. Next weekend we will be out of town, so there will be many more adventures to share with you upon my return!
