Weekend Schmeekend

Happy Monday (or not) everyone! I hope everyone had a nice weekend and for those of you who are off on this lovely Monday, know I envy you. I unfortunately have to work and knowing that people are off, means a busy day for me, guess I'll load up on my Starbucks today. Well here is a little recap of my lovely but short weekend. 

Friday my younger sister drove back up from school and after work and class, my mom, sister and I headed out for our favorite Mexican restaurant. It was a long overdue birthday dinner and as always, a great time, just us girls! Afterwards, we rented What to expect when you're expecting and I thought it was a nice lighthearted comedy, definitely glad I waited until it came out on DVD to rent it and not pay movie theater price for it, but still a great movie to watch.

Saturday my sister and I headed to the movies to watch Pitch Perfect. Now if you have a chance to go watch this, GO!! It is such a funny movie and the actors are so perfectly cast. Anna Kendrick is a great lead actress and Rebel Wilson is such a hilarious addition to the cast. If you want some laughs, singing, and a little romance thrown in, this is the movie for you! Afterwards, I ran a few errands, grocery shopped, and we had a pizza night at home.

Sunday I headed to brunch with some of my girlfriends at the best brunch place around us, Wildberry. If you are from the Chicago area, I definitely recommend going and checking it out. Amazing omelettes, so many different and yummy pancakes to choose from, and a variety of lunch options as well. I opted for the southwest veggie wrap with blackened chicken and some sweet potato fries....yum! 

After brunch I headed over to the mall to stock back up on my makeup that's running out from Sephora and then did a little detour shopping at Target. I picked up a really cute teal sweater for only $17.99!! For dinner, the family headed over to my cousins for dinner and it was such a nice way to end my weekend. After getting home I did go a little nuts and completely did a little room makeover, getting rid of all the crap that has been collecting dust. It was nice to look back at my room and see a nice, clean and organized room! 

p.s. A bunch of us Chicago bloggers are planning on meeting up on November 4th {Sunday}. If you are in the Chicagoland area and would like to join us, just send me an email and I'll gladly add you onto the list!!
