Random Wrap Up

Last week was such a roller coaster. I had some of the best and the worst days of 2011 in one week’s time.

No one wants to hear about the worst, so let’s jump into the good stuff.
On Friday, my boss took all of the managers out to lunch and then let us head home early from work. A few of the girls stayed back after lunch and ordered a bottle of wine. Which then, made me promptly fall asleep on the couch at home around 3pm. I’m pretty sure I’m not capable of being a “lady who lunches”.

Friday night was spectacular. Every year in Chicago, the free, Lincoln Park Zoo, puts on a light show around Christmas time. It’s no typical light show – it is a zoo that is transformed into a happy, winter wonderland. The offer spiced wine and beer, and you can walk around the zoo, check out the animals, listen to Christmas music, observe ice sculptures, and take in the sweeping views of the skyline.

It takes about an hour or two to walk around the zoo, so at 8:30, we walked right across the street to the Belden-Stratford and had dinner at Mon Ami Gabi.

It was honestly a perfect night.

We headed home on Saturday morning to celebrate Christmas with my family. Sunday morning, we all woke up early and had our own “Christmas morning”. After exchanging presents we had a big brunch and had my grandparents and cousins over for an early dinner.

It was such a fun weekend and filled me to the brim with the holiday spirit.

Just in time to head out of dodge this week and head to Mexico!

I have SO much to do in order to get ready for Mexico, but that’s a whole other post in itself.


Here is what I wore last week….

Gap pants, TB wedges, Nordstrom jacket, F21 necklace
Juicy Couture blazer, Paige jeans, BCBG shoes, Gap blouse

Gap button down, Paige jeans, Cole Haan boots

  1. Is it weird that I want to get in my car and drive 4 hours north just to see the zoo? Didn't think so.
