I blinked and it's basically May. I mean honestly, how has that happened?
April was spent mostly relaxing but with some roadtrippin' at the beginning of the month. We traveled down to Nashville and Florida to see my family and hang out at the beach for the weekend. My sister got engaged the day we arrived in Fort Walton which was AWESOME and planning is already well under way!
Nashville turned out to be incredibly fun and a post on the bars, restaurants and hotels we stayed at will be coming soon!
So... I thought it would be fun to start a little 'weekending series' on here every Friday about the week just gone and the weekend coming so here goes....
Saturday night we've got dinner booked with all the guys who came over to Chicago from London. We're heading to the West Loop for dinner at Green Street Local and drinks after at The Allis. Here's to hoping I can stay awake past 10pm to enjoy it! Sunday we have no plans so depending on the weather we might go for a walk or just relax at home watching films, doing some restorative yoga and knitting.. ah the perfect Sunday!
Chi-town is looking so pretty at the moment with the planters full of tulips. The weather is temperamental as usual (boiling one day, chilly the next) but spring feels right around the corner and I can't wait!
Must Watch show
The Haidmaids Tail on Hulu! It's freaky and messed up but oh so good.
Favourite thing this week
I hosted Book Club on Monday and it was so fun. We read 'Pretty Girls' by Karin Slaughter and it was equal parts horrifying and addictive - definitely not a book for the fainthearted. This month we're branching out and listening to a pod-cast instead; 'S-TOWN'. I've actually listened to it already but it's so good i'm happy to listen again. I need more people to talk to about it.
Song of the week
Anything by Ben Howard. I don't think i've ever listened to an album more than I have 'Every Kingdom'. Apart from Florence of course.
Propping up in bed to take a drink the other night, only to have what seemed like a gallon of water fall right out the side of your mouth.
Being able to watch the prettiest sunsets right from the comfort of our bed. It never gets boring.
