Weekend Recap: Shopping Fails, Brunch & Chicago Fire

This past weekend was a good one!

I started off the weekend with a little bit of shopping.  And quickly remembered why I rarely shop in stores anymore.  The selection online is just so much better.  After a flop of a shopping trip, I headed home and settled in the for the evening.  I started watching Chicago Fire, and quickly was hooked the whole evening!

I was super excited for Saturday, because it was my favorite antique mall's warehouse sale.  You never know what goodies you will find!  Before that, though, I got in a quick Peloton ride.  I knew if I didn't do it first thing, it probably would not happen.  Unfortunately, the warehouse sale was a bit of a bust.  I was looking for a few specific things, but nothing caught my eye.  I was in and out, before heading to Target.  My nephew's first birthday is coming up, and I was on the hunt for some warm weather clothes.  I tell you what, I just love shopping for my two favorite little guys!  The picture below is one I sent my mom for her opinion, and I ended up with both those little outfits, and a shorts onesie.  

We had another break in at church over the weekend, but thankfully this time, they didn't get away with anything, and the police were on it.  They didn't catch the person, but they were at least able to keep him from taking any items.  It just blows my mind that this has been an issue.  Given the neighborhood, and the fact that it is a church!  I mean, come on.  Just really sad.

I had brunch plans with a friend after church, and we tried out Boundary.  It's a neat restaurant, that has a really cool atmosphere.  It's kind of dark and moody, and they had a fire going which was neat.  

Granted, it turned out to be 50+ degrees outside Sunday, but it worked for the restaurant setting!  The food is good, but I wouldn't say it's the best.  I forgot to grab pictures, but we had the cinnamon rolls to start, and then I had the frittata.  Again, both were good, but not something I will necessarily be going back for.
 I could not get over the weather on the way home, and opened the sunroof and the windows.  It sure felt like spring!

I was off on Monday, which was so nice.  I spent the day taking it easy, alternating between getting stuff done around the house, and watching Chicago Fire.

It was a nice and easy weekend - just what was needed before some upcoming busyness!

Linking up with Penny.

  1. It just blows my mind how someone could ever break into a church. I mean, I'd love to know what they're even looking for in there! There's not much to steal in our church! We, of course, take in money in the weekly offering but it's not like they just store a pile of cash in there. So weird. I'm glad they were able to get him out before he got away with anything.
