chicago weekend.

April 14, 2014

courtesy of my telephone.

[J] & I packed our bags, loaded up the car, and headed east on friday. destination: Chicago, IL.

we were going to spend time with [J]’s family. and so I could attend his sister’s bridal shower. but whenever we make it to chicago, we cram as much as possible into our two short days. so there were strolls through the city, late night cocktails with friends, and early brunches. let’s just say I slept like a baby last night.

on our way home, we were quite literally driving into the heart of a massive thunderstorm. dodging tornadoes. not really my cup of tea. then we woke up to snow on the ground. which tends to put a damper on your already ‘monday’ morning. but I’m two cups of coffee in, and have high hopes for this week.

hope you all had the greatest weekend.

happy monday.

      crossing my fingers the weather will be as nice for you as it was for me. (that is until we had to leave on sunday).

        Thanks, dear. I hope I don’t encounter any crazy weather as you did yesterday.

    Looks like you had a great time in Chicago! The weather was even nice. Oh, please don’t send the snow to Illinois!

      the weather was gorgeous; wandering around the city in short sleeves was the greatest. hopefully you won’t get any of our snow. it was less than an inch, but enough to put a damper on your morning.

    It was 80+ here in KC Friday and there are flurries falling from the sky now. I just don’t get it. Looks like you had a great time!

      I do not get it either. WHHY!!! hopefully we are now experiencing the last of winter. I don’t like going from a sleeveless day to a winter coat day. my body can’t adjust to that.

    Ugh, SNOW?? Isn’t winter over? I’m glad you were able to get in a good weekend before the bad weather hit!

    • #LLinaBC April 14, 2014 at 2:49 pm

      snow!!!!! I could not [nor did I want to] believe my eyeballs when I woke up this morning. I’m hoping mother nature got it completely out of her system. bring on spring!
