Chicago Does Easter

Sunday, April 20, 2014

Chicago did good this weekend. The weather was so nice it almost made me forget the winter hell we've been living in for the past six months. Almost... Chicago has a lot of making up to do yet. 


Chris and I decided to spend Saturday at Wrigley watching the Cubs. I guess I should say he was watching the Cubs, I spent a majority of the afternoon thinking about my next snack. For some reason food just tastes better in a stadium. 




(This was only Chris's third hot dog of the day...)




After the game we decided to celebrate the Cubs victory with a little barbecue from one the oldest and best restaurants in the city, Twin Anchors. Take my word, if you ever come to Chicago you're going to want to eat at this place. It's like walking into a time warp and it's amazing. There's a reason it was one of Frank Sinatra's Chicago go-tos back in the day.



And then of course we did a little Easter brunching on Sunday at my favorite neighborhood spot, Dunlays on Clark.







And the last part of Easter was spent grilling on the patio enjoying our cute little side yard for the last two weeks before we move to our new home. Even just typing the word "move" makes me exhausted... I love decorating a new place and reorganizing, but it's all of that other stuff that I don't love. Let's just say moving is hard on a relationship... at least for a few hours. You know, those hours when you're trying to move an awkwardly heavy mattress but someone is walking too fast and someone is walking too slow and suddenly you run into a corner and jam your head and why are you so damn inconsiderate all the time?

Moving is fun.

And now it's time to get ready for another crazy week. Happy Monday, friends.

  8. Ahh cute pics! And I feel your pain on moving- we're about to move and I'm dreading the fact that we live on the top floor in a building with stairs... Oh well! The organizing tips on Pinterest are keeping me sane in the meantime. GOOD LUCK with your move!

  9. Glad you had a great Easter and it was finally nice out! It was so nice in Kansas City, too. I find that I'm surprised each spring when the trees and flowers actually bloom again and the weather is warm enough for me to break out the shorts and bare my pasty legs to the world! Moving sucks, but soon you'll be in an awesome new place!

  12. Oh my god, I totally get the moving being hard on a relationship for those few hours. Theres just too many annoyances that can come about. I know I hate bringing large items of home furnishings up and down the stairs with my boyfriend for the same reason you described. But Chicago is totally beautiful right now compared to how its been!
