On Mondays...

Ahhh no Monday off this week. It is going to be a long one!

This weekend was good, I got to relax on Friday night and then go go go the rest of the weekend.

- Friday- Was all about catching up on couch time. Last week was the first week of the semester so I spent a lot of time just figuring out the new schedule and when I would be getting home everyday.

-Saturday- I spent the day shopping with my roommate. I got a couple cute new dresses and a top. There were some nice sales going on at Express & Banana Republic. Then I got home and got rid of at least one thing in my closet for every new one I bought. I need to replace my old worn out wardrobe but I don't need to add to it.

Then The Boyfriend and I headed to dinner and out to Kings for bowling/drinks with some friends. We decided to try a new tapas place on the way to the bowling place. Ummm bad idea. The food was definitely subpar and our waitress showed up twice in the entire time we were there..didn't even bring our check after we waited 30 minutes for it. It was  not a good experience and I am going to be adding a review on Yelp today. 

I wish I had gotten a better picture of this dress because it was super cute and I got it $8!! 

- Sunday The Boyfriend made/brought breakfast in bed (pancakes!!) and then I headed off to go ice skating with my family. We had a great time skating and my nephew was so much better this time around! My mom hasn't skated in years and she didn't fall once! 

Trying to avoid a serious pile up! 
We were all starving so we headed to Jim's on Maxwell St for hot dogs & polishes. If you ever come to Chicago and want an authentic Chicago Style Hot Dog this is the place to go. Its no frills, not fancy at all but delicious! They wanted to eat in the car but since they hadn't been there in years I told them they had to get the full experience of eating it outside!

My sister whined that it was cold but its our job to torture her so it worked out! 

And then...homework. Because there was no way I was going to get away with a whole weekend without it. 

How was your weekend?

Looks like a fun, and chilly, weekend!! And love that you give one away when you bring a new piece of clothing in - I need to do that myself! Glad everyone made it off the ice safely! :-)
