Good morning, friends! How was your weekend? We had a pretty low key weekend that was full of errands. We were pretty productive but didn’t quite get everything we wanted to accomplished. Here is what we were up to:
Friday was a gorgeous day so Kevin and I decided to walk around the West Loop after work. We stopped in at De Cero on Randolph St. to grab some tacos for dinner. I had a black bean taco, a potato and roasted pepper taco, and a shrimp taco which I ended up giving to Kevin. I thought the tacos were just ok, but Kevin liked his and said he would go back.
We started our day with some coffee and more car research. Before heading out for the day, we also got out all of our sweaters and boots out of storage and did a little cleaning around the condo. We cleaned out our current car and took it get appraised for a trade in value. We spent all afternoon at CarMax looking at different options, but ended up not buying anything that day. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks we will find something we want.
After car shopping, we headed to downtown Naperville (we were out that way) to check out the new J. Crew store. We stopped in David’s Tea and did a little shopping.
Saturday was Kevin’s dad’s birthday so we met his parents for dinner at Texas Roadhouse. I can’t even remember the last time I had eaten there and now that I am not eating meat, I was a little concerned what I would order. Luckily, they had a veg plate where you could just pick four different sides so I had a side salad, baked sweet potato, broccoli, and carrots. Pretty random, but it worked! Oh and don’t forget the rolls!
We started our morning at church and then headed to Blue Door Farm Stand for lunch. Blue Door is one of my favorite lunch spots! I ordered the kale and brussels salad with a cup of the cauliflower and squash bisque – the perfect fall day lunch!
We headed home after lunch and I did some grocery shopping while Kevin did homework. I watched a couple episodes of Brothers and Sisters on Netflix and finished the night with the season premiere of The Good Wife.
How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
