We had a wonderful weekend that went by way too fast. Friday night, the drinking began as soon as I got home from work. Traffic on Friday is brutal, especially in the summer (aka construction season) and you just need something to take the edge off when you get home!
TGIF, for real
After dinner, we headed next door to check out the rooftop bar at the Little Goat. It was pretty crowded so we only stayed for one drink -- but we did manage to catch an impromptu fireworks show while on the rooftop. We headed to one more bar afterwards and then called it a night.
Nick and I had plans to check out the farmers market on Saturday morning but those quickly went out the window when we slept in until 10am. Sometimes you just need to sleep. Other than Nick's hockey game in the afternoon, we were lazy all day until it was time to get ready for our friends wedding!
The wedding was right downtown Chicago at the Ivy Room and it was so much fun. The ceremony and cocktail hour were held outside in a little courtyard and it was a gorgeous setting -- you almost didn't feel like you were in the city, despite the cabbies honking in the background ;) It was super hot, 90 degrees, and right at the end of the cocktail hour, it started downpouring! Summer storms roll in fast but we made it inside without getting too wet.
Sunday was another lazy day filled with hockey, errands and OITNB. Just the way a Sunday should be :) Hope you all had a fabulous weekend, too!
