fave friday

We went into the city last weekend for a little getaway.  And well, isn’t that what we all need sometimes, to get-away?  Amazing how getting out of the house melts away all of the to do’s, should do’s and would do’s.  Out of sight, really is out of mind.  At least for me it was.  We had a really fun time just being together, eating great food, going to the beach, seeing old friends and just feeling the energy of being in the city.

+ this week +

+ La La took a walk in the clouds
+ We were modern day explorers at the Field Museum
+ Went to the beach by way of the city
+ Brightened our days with neon
+ Indulged in room service, chocolate bars + cupcakes (so much so that El + L may or may not have puked at the fancy hotel – it was quite the night).

+ a few places we went to +

+ Bandera’s
+ Milk and Honey Cafe / killer orange zest brioche french toast
+ Montrose Beach
+ Jaipur / really great Indian food
+ Maude / best chocolate mousse I’ve had + super cute decor
Sprinkles Cupcakes  / yes they are as good as everyone says they are

Have you been to Chicago?  Do you have any favorite places you like to visit there?
