Weekending: The Best One


You know it was a good weekend when you can barely bring yourself to look at your computer on Sunday night.  Writing a weekend recap would mean that the weekend was over... and I did not want this weekend to end!

The fun started on Friday evening with dinner at a new pizza spot, Stella Barra.  We went out with our friends who just got married in June and it was great to catch up with them about newlywed life and hear all about their honeymoon.  The food was fabulous and we sat in the back courtyard and dined under twinkle lights... the perfect summer evening.  Of course I totally failed to take pictures except for this one in which it looks like there is an eyeball in my drink (just a cherry)!


Saturday brought Chicago's Air & Water Show and I could barely contain my excitement.  The Blue Angels were practicing in the city on Thursday and Friday and I had been able to catch a few glimpses from the apartment so I was ready to see the actual show.  We had a late start to the morning (thanks to a few more after dinner drinks the night before) and headed down to the beach around lunch time.  We had a great viewing spot and there was the perfect amount of cloud cover so that we weren't baking in the sun.




After the show, we met up with a few friends for lunch at American Junkie.  And this is where the unplanned bar crawl began!  We skipped around to quite a few bars and it was a day full of complete shenanigans.  Nick and I ended up back home around 10pm, with just enough time to make a quick pizza for dinner and to catch an episode of Dexter (our newest obsession) before crashing hard.




On Sunday morning, we met back up with two of our friends and headed out for donuts at Glazed & Infused.  If you're in Chicago, living or visiting, you have to check this little shop out.  Best.donuts.ever.  We tried 5 different flavors -- Old Fashioned, Oreo M&M, Blueberry Lemon, Sprinkles and an Apple Fritter -- and every single one was so soft and delicious.  After consuming enough sugar to send us into a food coma, we headed to church.  We love our church here in Chicago and it is one of the things I'm most sad about leaving behind.


The rest of the day was spent taking a glorious nap, grocery shopping, grilling cheeseburgers and completely 100% avoiding packing, ha.  But we've got all week to work on packing... weekends are for fun, right? :)  Hope you had a great one, too!
Ps. make sure to stop by tomorrow for an awesome giveaway!!

  5. Sounds like a great weekend!! Off the top of your head can you think of any festivals or anything big that happens in Chicago the first weekend of April? We're trying to get a room that weekend for the Blues/Blackhawks, which I know is big in its own, but there's not much available. Any clues?

  11. I'll have to check out that pizza place! I just checked out their website, looks great! You know last weekend I mentioned Glazed & Confused when we were going to Big Star. But we went to Stan's Doughnuts instead. Those doughnuts look pretty delicious though. I haven't been to American Junkie either, but at some point I'm sure that I will. I really sound like I don't go anywhere don't I? Haha. Hope that you have a great day! :-)
