Weekend Happenings

Its Thursday and I'm just now posting about my weekend.  Ugh, yes, its been one of those weeks.  And to top it off, Matt and I found out our rent is increasing by $100 per month.  Which means, you guessed it, we're moving.  Again.  More boxes, more packing, more lifting, more cramming to get all of our stuff to fit in a small place.  Oh how I love being a nomad :)  But on the brighter side, here's what I've been up to the past several days...

Brunch{we heart it}

The yummiest Saturday brunch at Yolk...
(Voted the best Eggs Benedict in Chicago!)
A Friday night sleepover with my friend Christie...
(Sometimes I still feel like we're back in third grade.)
Wine, cheese, and champagne flights at Whole Foods...
(Some people go for the organic produce, I go for the wine.)
Enjoying the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio tour with Matt...
(I think its cool how to me a wall is just a normal part of a room, but to an architect, its so much more.)
A delicious meal of Mexican food in Pilson...
(A Yelp success by Matt!)
A Sunday evening nap...
(Which made for a 2 am bedtime Sunday night, oops!)
Movie night with Matt
(Lincoln Lawyer = so good.)
A healthy homemade meal via Gina's Skinny Recipes...
(Who can say no to coconut crusted chicken?)
Loving the Top Chef finale...
(Even though I saw a FB spoiler, grrr.)
Enjoying a few sunny days in Chicago...
(and desperately wishing this city would get the whole SPRING memo!)

So that's whats new here, what's new with you?  I've missed you!

Good luck with your move! I know moving can be a real pain. I've just been hanging out with the baby, planning a retreat and working :D

Have a great weekend with Matt!

oh no, $100 more a month in rent is so not cool. it's too bad they didn't opt to have you stay. i feel like it's only going to be more work for not only you, but them! having to find a new tenant. bummer. happy apartment hunting though! and it sounds like you had a great weekend otherwise :)

Sorry about moving again! What a pain :\
P.S.
I just watched the 'Till The World Ends" vid and thought "Oh, I see why Allison loves her" (great song). I've always thought this, but I noticed how you two look alike and thought: "I don't think Brit's got anything on Allison. She's much prettier."

Just thought I'd let you know about my rambling thought process, haha!
