Weekend Recap

Hey folks! It's rainy/snowy/slushy outside and completely miserable. I so totally wish I could be at home in my pajamas under my warm and comfortable blanket, but alas I need a paycheck so I'm at work. Blogging away because apparently none of my patients want to be out there in the miserable weather, I quite frankly don't blame them.
This past weekend was actually a beautiful (probably for the last time) weekend in Chicago. On Saturday I headed downtown in the late afternoon to check out the Mag Mile Lights Festival with my best friend. Neither of us had gone before and we thrilled to get to see Mickey & Minnie Mouse...yes I am an adult, and yes I don't care if you judge me for my love of Disney. Elsa from Frozen was also there, but the parade was too long and we were getting hangry so we high tailed it out of there to find food.

(Notice there are childrens shoulders and heads in almost every picture, thats basically what we dealt with standing on our tippy toes to see the parade)
After the parade, we grabbed food and headed to the Chriskindlemarket in Daley Plaza. I hadn't ever been there and was excited to walk through and check out all the booths and grab a bavarian pretzel! Not only did I get that, but I got hot cocoa in the most adorable snowman mug, so worth the $7!


On Sunday, it was rainy and gloomy all day so the sister and I did some damage at the stores. We went a bit Christmas/holiday decor crazy and grabbed a bunch of stuff. I've already started putting stuff up around the house and can't wait until I put up the tree!!

That evening, a few friends and I went to see Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Phew that's a long title. I really enjoyed the movie and if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. Let me just say I cannot wait until the next and final one comes out.

The sister and I got matching holiday pajamas and were so excited to try them on, well at least I was.

They're from Victoria's Secret and if you buy PJ's you get free slippers and let me tell you those bad boys aren't coming off my feet whenever I'm home, they are SO warm and cozy!
Linking up with Lisa & Bella for Weekend Recap!
