weekend recap {anniversary & a concert}

this past weekend was a really great one (i know, i always say that. but this was really really was).

saturday we hit the beach to take advantage of the gorgeous weather. it wasn’t beach weather per se, but it was nice to be outdoors. that night we checked out the new top shop store and spent the gift cards we spent a saturday stuffing into bags, and then headed to our old ‘hood to celebrate our anniversary with dinner at mexique (it was tasty, but not enough that we would go back with all the other restaurant options there are).

sunday we packed two coolers of food and beer, a table, four chairs, seven bottles of wine and a bag and had an amazing time at ravinia with my parents, listening to the tunes of big head todd and the monsters and john hiatt. the weather was perfection, the music was great, the food was aplenty and the wine was flowing. ravinia is such a great time and highly recommended if you’ve never been!

i took monday off work (i planned ahead for my hangover, thank goodness) and spent the day going out to breakfast, hitting up montrose beach (beck loved it) and spraypainting (though i need another can and it’s not sold in the city. ugh).
