This past week, while in Chicago, my mom, sister, and friend Sam all went wedding dress shopping! Lauren is getting married next July and I’m so glad that I was able to be here for the very first dress try-on experience!
She looked absolutely beautiful in every dress, as I expected, and I think she may have actually found the one! I’m so excited for her!
It’s absolutely freezing here in Chicagoland. I mean, mind-numbing cold. More snow/ice and even colder temperatures are blowing in this weekend so the boys and I had to reschedule our flight. We hope to make it out tomorrow because we miss Justin!
When we were downtown, I noticed that almost every woman was wearing the same exact outfit. It was a black puffer jacket with fur around the hood, a hat with a pouf on top, and serious winter boots. I’m not even kidding, I didn’t see any single person wearing an outfit different than that. I mean, I was only outside for a grand total of 10 minutes but still.
My sister gave David a sweet little Ice Cream Shop toy that he LOVES! He serves everyone ice cream cones, and actually set the price of each cone at $1,000.00. The set comes with paper money, which are $1, but David decided his cones cost more. It’s so cute seeing him take it so seriously and pretend to be an actual Ice Cream Shop worker!
My sister and I go to Las Fuentes downtown Chicago every time I visit. It’s the best Mexican food I’ve ever had!
There is no way to transition smoothly into this subject, but I’m sure you’ve been keep up with the news coming from Syria. As a mother, I’m quite literally nauseated with the thought of what the innocent civilians are enduring day in and day out, and heartbroken that so many children are seeing and experiencing such horrifying circumstances. I usually can’t google it too much because I become too upset, but I did find a resource listing out ways to help, if you feel compelled.
And there is no real way to transition back into my normal light-heartedness that you find on the blog, so I’m going to wrap up this links + loves post here.
Thanks for reading, checking in on my posts, and I hope you have a restful and restorative weekend in this busy season.
