The Weekend

The weeks seem like they are just flying by, but for some reason (and I'm not at all complaining) the weekends seem to last long! On Friday night, the Mr. and I headed to Happy Hour at Wildfire. We sampled a few apps and drinks and then met our friend before settling down at Public House to watch the Phillies vs. Cardinals game. While the game was a MAJOR disappointment (really, Phillies?), we did enjoy the night out.

Saturday morning was spent at the Green City Market. We purchased Michigan apples and a whole corn cob that you stick in the microwave to make popcorn. The weather was sunny and really warm on Saturday, and we actually ended up flipping the AC back on. It feels so strange for October! After the market, we headed outside the city in search of a good winter coat for the Mr. and some wellies for me. Saturday fun continued with a concert at Lincoln Hall that night. We saw Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers and Jon McLaughlin. Both were amazing, and the small venue made it to much more fun! I picked up the new Jon McLaughlin album, and the new Stephen Kellogg album will be out in a few days.

On Sunday morning, I met my friend from high school for a morning Barre Bee Fit class in Lincoln Park. It's such a great workout, and my body is feeling much better since starting 2 weeks ago. We stopped by the Apple store at North/Clybourn in the afternoon to check out the iPhone 4, and ultimately decided to wait for the 4S in just a few days. We both have the 3GS now, and are due for an upgrade. We met up with my high school friend again for some food at Burger Bar afterwards.

We did so much this weekend, so perhaps that is why it felt so long! I'm swamped with work this week, but will be taking some time out on Tuesday afternoon to meet up with Danielle. I think the weather is supposed to stay unseasonably warm, but I'm wishing for those crisp autumn mornings to return!

What are you up to this week?
