I’ve never been more happy to see Friday! It always seems that the weeks following an extended weekend are the longest! It was a pretty low key week around here. Kevin had his final week off before he starts school again next week so we enjoyed the nights home together after work. We are headed on a little trip this weekend too so I am excited about that! Whatever you are up to this weekend, I hope it’s a great one!
Like I said, Kevin and I are getting away this weekend. We will be heading out west to Seattle! This will be my first trip to a western state that isn’t California. I’m excited to explore a new city! Besides the obvious places (Pike Place Market, Space Needle, etc.), any recommendations of things to see?
Thanks to my friend, Beth, I discovered a new food truck I love – Chicago Cupcake. Their cupcakes aren’t just ordinary cupcakes, they are more like cheesecake cupcakes! Each flavor has a graham cracker crust on the bottom and the cupcake is made from cream cheese with flour being the last ingredient. If you see their red truck around the city, you must stop! They are seriously so good! My favorite flavors so far have been Birthday Cake and Salted Caramel.
I picked up some pretty new baubles during the J Crew sale last weekend and I am so excited to wear them!
Knowing that we only have a few more weeks of warm weather left, I’ve been trying to be outside as much as possible. One of my favorite spots to eat lunch during the week is at the Art Institute gardens. It’s so beautiful and a nice little oasis in the middle of a busy city.
My sister bought me this awesome new Purdue shirt (after eyeing hers) and I can’t wait to wear it this football season!
So there you have it – my random five on Friday! Check back on Monday for pictures from our Seattle trip!
