Strums in Chi

What an amazing weekend. SO sad it has already come and gone!!! This past weekend was spent in Chicago with my dearest friends -- Molly & Kate, aka "Strums." What didn't we do this weekend!?

Friday: The day started with grabbing lunch at Au Cheval -- that cheeseburger really is the best. Afterwards we headed up to Lincoln Park to the J. Parker to catch up over a bottle of rose and take in the pretty view. We figured out we hadn't been together just the 3 of us since COLLEGE. How!? Needless to say this weekend was long overdue! After some downtime at home, which included champagne + Sprinkles cupcakes (asking these two to be a part of our wedding!), we headed for drinks at Billy Sunday. We finished our night up at Girl & the Goat, immediately followed by bed!

Saturday: Wanting to get out on the "Mile of Gold" aka the Magnificent Mile -- we headed to Tavern on Rush for brunch. Majority of our day was spent shopping and calling "beer" of course! Our final stop while we were out was The Terrace at Trump -- my first time here and a great rec from E! We couldn't NOT get the seafood platter... took us right back to our favorite nights at Jax in Boulder. Dinner on Saturday was spent at Maude's, perfect pre-Kingston Mines. Such a great last night!!

Sunday: CBA & Glazed and Infused, waterside, is how we spent our morning. The lily pools and Lincoln Park Zoo followed -- what a beautiful day! Sadly we had to say goodbye to Kate after that :( The rest of our day was spent showing Mugs some of our favorite shops, then taking her to Big Star. A perfect Sunday treat.

So sad to see them go. Anxiously awaiting our next trip!!!
