Good morning and happy Monday!

I had quite a busy weekend, but it was definitely fun! It all started out Friday when my parents arrived in town. They stopped off at my apartment to drop off a few things, and then later we all went out to dinner at a Greek restaurant up in Lakeview.

Saturday morning I headed out for my 6 mile run and decided to run south through the Gold Coast neighborhood. On my run I came across this Halloween display:

Haha pretty cool! The temperature was also pretty cool… It was the first outdoor run where I’ve had to break out the running tights and long sleeves! I’d been avoiding the cold weather by running on the treadmill, but I wanted to run outside and I’m so glad I did!

After my run I showered and got ready for book club. This month our book was Orange Is the New Black, which is now a Netflix original series. I actually liked the book more than I like the TV show because the show is much more extreme and the book was more realistic as to what prison was really like for her. Definitely give it a read, I really enjoyed it and got through it fairly quickly.

Our view from book club, hosted by Ashley, was also quite gorgeous!

After book club I headed back up to Lincoln Park to watch the Missouri football game with my brother, sister-in-law and my parents. We won’t discuss how that game went…

Sunday morning I was up early and headed downtown to meet up with my friend, Marley, from Charleston. We met this summer when we were both bridesmaids in my friend Amy Lee’s wedding and we hit it off right away! I definitely miss this girl.


I only had a little bit of time but she, her friend and I checked out the Bean and I took them up Michigan to get a look at the river.

Then I hurried back down Michigan Avenue for an architecture tour with my parents and older brother. It was pretty interesting and I really loved that we went into the lobbies of several buildings, which I had never done. This tour definitely taught me to stop for a minute and look up at all the amazing buildings in Chicago!

After the tour I went to lunch with my parents and then headed home for some R&R. I was exhausted from walking around for several hours all morning! Then it was time for cocktail hour at my apartment and dinner at an Italian restaurant in Lincoln Park with my parents! They head home this morning but it was so nice to have them come and visit!
