I LOVE the Weekends!

Happy Monday!

I seriously love the weekends!!

It’s an even happier Monday because we are all off from work/school today and headed to China Town… Sara’s choice since she is studying China in school and asked to go. We had an awesome weekend!  Let me break it down with some pictures!!

There was the amazing run that I had outside!


The wonderful date night that included seeing Gone Girl and an amazing dinner with the Hubs!  We stuffed ourselves with incredible courses and food from an amazing italian restaurant in the city.


This was just a small sampling of some the food we had.  The shredded brussels sprouts salad as amazing and so was the parmesan and mushroom risotto.  Dessert rocked too!!

By the way, have you seen Gone Girl?  It was awesome!  Very very similar to the book!  Loved it and Ben Affleck was outstanding!!  It was over 2 hours but the movie flew!!

And…. look what came in the mail!!


I leave Saturday for Austin where it’s supposed to be sunny and in the 80’s!  I can’t wait for a girls getaway and lots of yummy eats and laughs!!

We had perfect fall weather on Sunday which made me happy for all the amazing runners who ran the Chicago Marathon yesterday!  One day I’ll do it again!  My last time was 10/10/10…just after my 30th birthday.  Perhaps I will do it in 2020!  One never knows! Special congrats to all those who ran!

Our Sunday was filled with friends and family time!  We enjoyed being outside!


I also got this in the mail!


So excited it’s finally here!  I need to find a night to sit down and watching it!  Has anyone seen it?

That’s it for now– time to enjoy Homeland and hopefully I can stay away to watch the new show on Showtime called The Affair!  Sunday night TV is the best!!  Who’s with me?

  3. gone girl was great wasn’t it? I did a review of Fed Up a few weeks ago. Eye opening for sure and gave me a lot to think about.

    One of Chris’ sisters was an extra in Gone Girl – it was filmed in the town she lives in (Cape Girardeau, MO).
    And, Austin is one of my favorite cities ever!!! Hook ’em Horns!!

    We both ran Chi on 10/10/10! Yesterday was so gorgeous it tempted me to consider a 3rd running of the Chi. We’ll see.
    The kids’ dentist recommended Gone Girl to me. Maybe I should read the book first.
