Hi friends! How was your weekend?! You know how they say “A Sunday well spent brings a week of content?” Hmmm. Yeahhhh. That wasn’t my weekend. Because I basically didn’t do anything productive, hence the one day late Weekend Wrap-Up! I’m not kidding, I had every intention to post this on Monday, but I woke up and my house was SO messy and gross and I just had this overwhelming urge to clean. At 6 AM.
Then after work I had to cook dinner, run a billion errands, and meal prep. FUN STUFF.
I totally remembered why I’m always a granny on Sundays.
This weekend actually turned out to be so much fun! Here’s what we were up to…
Started the weekend off with a little wine tasting at the cutest little wine shop by our apartment, Craft. I love this place because they carry so many unique & tasty wines but most are under $20. And they do free tastings on Fridays. HELLO!?
Tasted some tapas at a new tapas place down the street called Spanish Square. This place is SO good. And they actually have a smaller menu which I kind of love, because usually when I go to tapas I’m so overwhelmed by the menu. Every one we tried was amazing.
Brunched with the girls at LOKaL in Wicker Park. I was super weird and ordered steak & eggs minus the eggs (lol) but it was actually really delicious. And they offer unlimited mimosas for just $12!
Sipped a couple of cocktails (aka I drank red wine at a bar) and watched UK beat Alabama for a full 5 minutes at Bottled Blonde. I left at 9 PM like a grandma and laid in bed and watched Bridget Jones’ Diary. Hehe. (You can find my super comfy boyfriend jeans ever here)
Drove up to Wisconsin for some APPLE PICKING at Apple Holler! This was definitely the highlight of the weekend because it ended up being so freakin’ fun. We went super early (like, got there at 10 AM) so it wasn’t too crowded (hate crowds) and the orchards were pretty much wide open. I ate SO many apples, omg. It’s just $20 to go out into the fields and pick anything you want (and taste test!).
A lot of people asked me if I liked this orchard or County Line orchard better, and I liked this one better just because the orchards weren’t as picked over and there are so many more types of apples. Plus, I know this is petty, but at Apple Holler you pay $20 at the entry and you can pick as many as you want. At County Line you pay per pound, which is fine, but the lines to pay are SO LONG, so you’re standing there holding 10 pounds of apples, sweating, with 8 kids knocking into you.
I was also asked a couple of times about my sweater and it’s from H&M – I linked it here. It’s SO comfy and long enough that you can wear it with leggings. I’m also obsessed with this one, I think it would be SO cute for apple picking!!
Finished the weekend with a totally non-30 approved plate of Udon at Tanuki. You guys – our favorite restaurant in the city, Namo Thai, closed down. We’re SO upset. This was always our Sunday tradition. So if you have any suggestions for AMAZING Thai food, we’re now taking suggestions so we can find a replacement. (WAHHHH!!!!)
So tell me… What did you do this weekend? Anything fun? Do you plan on apple picking this year? Do you have any favorite Thai spots in the city to share?! (PLZ!) Tell me everything! I have new posts lined up for EVERY day the rest of this week! So get excited. I’ll see you tomorrow with the easiest Whole 30 recipe basically EVER. Xo.
