3. Chicago: in case you missed it my sister and I went out to Chicago for a long weekend to visit our brother. We went last year and decided to do a reunion trip this year. If we can continue with this, I have a feeling each year will continue to be better than the last. I don’t know how I forgot to mention this in my post early this week (more Chicago fun there), but can I just tell you how small this world is…
We went to an awesome rooftop spot in the city and after our cocktail waitress got us our drinks, she came back over to talk to us. She was so incredibly sweet and said she didn’t want to sound creepy but she thought my sister and brother looked really familiar. She then tells us that she knows our other brother from instagram! We started cracking up because anyone that knows our other brother knows he is something else with his social media. He lives in NJ and has no connection to Chicago, but I guess this social media world is something else. Anyway, she also mentioned she remembered seeing pics of these two really cute kids and I couldn’t help but brag that they were mine 🙂 We all took a pic with her and sent it to our brother and she hooked us up with an amazing discount.
4. Birthday theme: I mentioned little nugget will be two next week so we are have a small family and friends party planned for him. Since he is obsessed with anything and everything that has to do with balls, we are having a beach ball themed party for him. I guess this isn’t a very popular theme so I feel like the inspiration on Pinterest is lacking for me which just means I have to put my creative juices to work. I did think this idea for a photo backdrop was cute.
5. Nordstrom sale: this thing is still going on? Yup, you won’t stop hearing about it until after the 6th so there is still time to try and get the deals that are left over. Lizzie posted about these sneakers a few weeks ago and I have always wanted to get a pair of converse for the boys so I jumped at these. I had to return little nuggets original pair that were too small and then ordered him the next size up. These came incredibly fast though and were at my door within two days.
I am also enjoying the finds I got too. These leggings I’m sure I will be wearing on repeat this fall and winter. I also have a few things in mind that I’m still on the fence if I want to pull the trigger on them.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! Here’s where you can find me linking up for all the link up fun. Also a little reminder that our girl chat link up will be on Thursday and this month we’ll be talking about our dream vacations. We hope to see you there!
