you guys, i had one of the best weekends i’ve had in awhile. i’ve told you before that i’m a “doer” when it comes to weekends, right? Mike tends to enjoy relaxing on the couch, watching movies, and the like, while i can last for maybe 2 episodes of Homeland before i’m going stir crazy. it’s a combination of spending all day, every day during the week in my apartment and wanting to get out and enjoy the benefits of living in such a beautiful city when i actually have time with Mike (which is only on the weekends). we spent a ton of time outside and out of my apartment, so it was a victory for me, for sure!
between cruising the Chicago River, attempting* a beach day, walking to a local theater for a $5 movie, and running errands on Sunday, we accomplished a lot and it was giving me life, i tell ya. it was also giving me life to be outside of my air conditioning-less apartment because #itishot #andsohumid i haven’t even attempted to style my hair in like 5 days. WHATS THE POINT WHEN IT ALL MELTS AS SOON AS I FINISH IT. (humidity and i are currently on bad terms).
so, all in all, this weekend will go down as one of my favorites. it’s just really nice to have someone to spend them with, ya know? that’s definitely the best part.
*it rained within 15 minutes of arriving at the beach. and when i say “rained”, i mean downpoured in the sort of way that a summer storm hits and quickly rolls on by. it was sorta beautiful, but also…we were pretty soaked.
