After a pretty crazy week (mainly due to my inability to handle change) I took this weekend to decompress. Today that meant finishing House of Cards season 2, ordering in groceries, lunch and now catching up on GIRLS. Pretty friggin great. Does Monday really have to come so soon?!
Tiny tacos FTW. Chicken, pineapple & avocado. Biscuit tortillas. Perfection. #fatkid
Really nailing this wrap-up thing. February went by waaaay too fast. I don’t even know what happened, between work, Junior League and my own inability to break this winter funk, my life has been meh and not a lot I can write home about (re: share on the interwebs). A few lows, including how much friggin’ snow we still are getting, but there were a few highlights:
- Wonderful First Look at the Auto Show again (minus the late arrival and my near-meltdown)
- The most laid-back and fat kid Valentines Day ever at AAs- Champs! Pizza! Souffles!
- Great dinners at: The Dawson, Kinmont, Stout, Stella Barra and my new favorite- Green Street Smoked Meats.
- Wrapped up with a super fun concert night to see our faves, Royal Teeth. Love.
In March I’m hoping for more basketball, more working out, less anxiety and warmer weather! Oh yeah, and that little thing called St. Patty’s Day…
Yup. Loved it. #chicagobbq #fatkid (at Green Street Smoked Meats)
Let’s hope this is true… on all fronts!
Don’t let the filters fool you, we’re modernizing #JLChicago with new social media accounts tonight at the winter general meeting! #myotherjob (at Union League Club of Chicago)
No time to post fun things, so I thought I’d share this little clip of Sammy staring me down last night while I was trying to work. After several minutes, I caught him when he got frustrated and gave up. Too cute, especially his little growls. Such a funny guy! Who can resist that face?!
Someone really didn’t want to get out of bed this morning. It seems he’s even over this weather and depressed. He didn’t even care if I took pictures while judging him. I had to beg him to eat breakfast so I could get out the door… luckily for him he can sleep all day whereas I’m at work still battling this cold. Happy Monday!
Yum. Had one of our winter dinner reservations last night at the new sustainable seafood restaurant, Kinmont. I went last week and tried some cocktails and apps, but last night we did the whole thing- crab dip, steak tartare, parker house rolls (made with duck fat!) I had the salmon in brown butter sauce, while others dined on more raw items, then we wrapped up with apple pie with a cheddar caramel sauce and chocolate chip cookies with an ovaltine dipping sauce. Everything was really flavorful and the service was pretty entertaining. Oh, and cocktails are strong! Definitely a must try! #fatkid #chicagoeats
Happy birthday to the BEST best friend a girl could ask for! Love you Keek! #tbt #apparentlywehavesides
I am okay. I may not seem okay. And I may not be okay now. But I am, like, okay.
I always knew I was Marnie.
