the sis in chicago.

My sister flew in to Chicago on Wednesday afternoon. We had a great time. Here’s a little recap of her trip to the Chi.

Michigan Avenue. Lunch at Bandera and coffee in the lounge at RL. Wine with Sarah + Melissa at my place followed by drinks at Citizen.

Breakfast at Orange where we sat outside until it rained for maybe 3 minutes. We took the food to go just in case and in typical chicago fashion, it did not rain the rest of the day. I love this city but it’s just a little fickle when it comes to the weather. Also on the agenda for the day…italian ice at Mario’s Italian Lemonade, architectural tour, Navy Pier, and dinner with C at Scoozi.

Margaritas at Big Star, drinks at Public House.

Green City Market, lunch + grocery shopping at Whole Foods, the bean, Lurie gardens, Buckingham fountain, catching up with my friend Jason, fireworks at Trump and finally…Garden State with Melissa.

Millennium Park. The flowers are in bloom everywhere. So beautiful!

Brunch with Sarah, Melissa, Brian + the dogs at the Original Pancake House followed by a walk through the Gold Coast. Jess left and Melissa and I lounged around my apt for a few hours with the dogs and then grabbed dinner at Japonais. I had never been to the patio outside. So, so pretty! I love Chicago when it isn’t 20 degrees outside!

It was a packed few days! So fun! Back to my regular work schedule {which explains the late post today}. Hope your Monday is off to a great start!

How was your weekend?
