My Weekend in Pictures

  Exhausted is the only word I can think of to describe how I feel right now.  I woke up at 4:30 AM today to say goodbye to my bf before he headed back to DC.  I can't keep my eyes open but it was well worth it because we had an amazing weekend!  And obviously an amazing weekend calls for an amazing new dress.  I picked up this minty number at Zara
 and wore it to date night at the Pump Room. 
 While there I decided that the lobby of the Public Hotel would be my ideal wedding location.  I'm not usually one for hotel weddings but this space is perfection.  Just look at those intricate moldings and antique mirror filled arches.  le sigh.
 On Saturday we celebrated St. Patty's Day and, well, that's all I'm going to say about that.
 Sunday was spent enjoying the ridiculously warm weather.  Is anyone else freaked out by the 80+ degree temps that Chicago is experiencing? 
I feel like something bad is going to happen...but until then, I'm going to keep enjoying wearing sandals and taking walks along the lake!
(I can't wait to read this post next March!)
After the walk my mom stopped by and gave me this brass bird she found while sorting through my grandparent's house...
then we went to Whole Foods (my favorite Sunday pastime) and made a little feast to celebrate a great weekend and Paulie's 'last supper' before heading back to DC.

How was your weekend? This week I plan on wrapping up my Ikea Malm table (posted about on Friday)...if all goes well I'll post a tutorial later in the week so be sure to check back!
