Photo Friday: Weekend Away

Photos from last month & our trip to Chicago to see Luke Bryan play at Wrigley Field.  It was also the first time we left little miss overnight, necessary but still more difficult than I thought.  I cannot believe this was a month ago already, time is seriously flying...

Gearing up for another road trip… (mug via Starbucks)
New. new, & more new :)
Celebrating a weekend away
Mini bar crawl before the concert
312, my favorite Goose Island brew

Bar Louie helped fund my college, so I always like to visit when I can...
Dick's Last Resort (they serve 40's)
Spent the night at The W
Souvenirs from the concert
Morty's for wings once we got back into town...

Happy Weekend!

Good Morning Fall

My absolute favorite time of the year, hands down.  Our house is on pumpkin overload & I've been adding little touches to the decor every time I set foot in a store…oops! It's ok, we're gearing up for Canadian Thanksgiving so there's the justification...

Why can't you sell this creamer, Canada?!
Fall arrivals are almost all here...
The bin-o-fall-decor has been emptied & stored away until the Christmas decor comes out...
Chilly weather = casserole weather… tried a new mac n cheese recipe :)
Cozy sweaters & finishing up the last of the summer ale (sweater: free people)
Putting our fire pit to use after the babe goes to bed
Farmers market flowers are always the prettiest (& cheapest)
Matching headbands with my girl :)
Pumpkin coffee station (mug & coffee: home sense, Sugar bowl: Zehr's, syrup: target).
Added some lights to the mantle this year….

My Kinda Floral

This floral print has been a staple over the summer…from wedding receptions to birthday parties, it really proved versatile.  The mornings have been getting chilly, but I'm not storing this one away just yet.  My only regret? I didn't get the white version of this dress too...

Earrings (H&M)/ All Else (F21)

Photo Friday: First Girls Getaway (Part 2)

How I missed a whole week again, I'll never know.  This week has flown by & been pretty eventful.  I had a bunch of extra time this morning (that never happens) to work on posts for next week.  Until then, enjoy these from last month...
