It’s finally here! It’s Christmas week! Only two more days of work stand between me and vacation through the New Year! I am so ready for Christmas break and can’t wait to hang out with my family next week. Until then, here is a little look at our weekend.
FRIDAY | Kevin and I grabbed Indian food for dinner at Khyber Pass before going to a movie. I had the Chicken Tikka which was pretty good. I am new to Indian food so I’m starting with the basics. 😉
We saw the movie Sisters with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler which definitely had some laugh out loud funny parts but I think could have been better.
Our town was hosting its “Home for the Holidays” event downtown so there were free horse drawn sleigh rides, a hot chocolate tent, and Santa was out for kids to visit as well. Kevin and I went on one of the sleigh rides and walked around for a while in the afternoon. It was a fun little event!
Our downtown is decorated really cute for Christmas so I always like walking around and seeing all of the festive decor.
We watched the first half of the Purdue basketball game before heading downtown Chicago for the evening. Every year we go to a Christmas musical with Kevin’s parents. This year we had dinner at Cochon Volant before going to see Straight No Chaser at the Civic Opera House. They sang a lot of Christmas songs during the second act which was great.
SUNDAY | We went to church in the morning and then had breakfast at Blue Max Coffee. This has recently become one of our favorite places and I ordered my usual veggie scramble.
We were seated right next to the fireplace which continued our cozy weekend theme.
It was actually beautiful outside on Sunday so we spent the afternoon running a few errands and made a stop at Oak Brook Center for some shopping. We visited their Christkindlmarket which is the same as the one downtown Chicago just on a smaller scale.
We bought some cinnamon roasted cashews and snacked on those while walking around the mall.
Once we got home we watched the Bears game which we had recorded from earlier. We ended our night by watching Love Actually. 🙂
Hope you all had a good weekend as well!
