Weekend Recap: I’ll be back soon, Chicago!

Hi friends!

Weekend recap time – only two days late. πŸ˜‰ I’ve actually been waiting on discount codes from a sponsored post, otherwise this would’ve been up yesterday. I’m also going to write a post on all three of my events last week, so stay tuned for that!

So let’s start with last Friday. I got up, worked out in the hotel fitness room …

Hotel Workout

Pretty good little room for a crazy hotel (you know if you’re a part of my Snapchat fam) πŸ™‚

After my workout, I got my last free breakfast buffet with my colleague and then we got all packed up and ready to go. We drove to Naperville for a meeting with three of my alumni boar members, did a venue check and had a wonderful lunch with them. No pics. πŸ˜‰

After a long afternoon of that (that’s what happens when you have four talkers in one room ha!) my colleague drove me downtown to stay with Ben for the weekend.

And that’s my weekend …


(I’m just getting ready for the comments)

Ben is a guy I’ve been seeing whenever possible for the last couple of months and, after this weekend, is my boyfriend. WHOA GIRL. I know. πŸ™‚ I’ll tell you more about him later. Maybe. Probably. So, now at least you have the basics.

Chicago weekend

So, Friday night I spent with Ben and his friends out at a taco bar (which I forget the name of) and then we went to a bar to play pool afterwards (or for me to watch everyone play pool because I suck).

Saturday morning Ben had to work (he’s a personal trainer so Saturday morning clients!) so I went with him and sat at a Starbucks to get some work done. I did get to meet up with Marette that morning! So we were able to chat about all things life, but of course we forgot to take a picture. πŸ™‚

Around 1, I went over to the gym and checked out his space. We were both starving, so we hit up a sushi place as you can see in the picture above and then went back to his place and hung out. He had some work to do and I was basically still in a coma from my week of events so we sat on the couch watching too many episodesΒ of New Girl. Later that night he had a hockey game, so I went with him and a few of his family members to watch the game. So basically a pretty amazing Saturday. πŸ™‚

Sunday we hit up a brunch place (DO YOU SEE THE FRENCH TOAST WE GOT?!) and then got a little bit of work done before I had to take the train back to Milwaukee where my sister picked me up to take me back to Green Bay!

The rest of the night I watched the Packers lose (boo) and got a few things done around the house. Wonderful weekend!

I had both Monday and Tuesday off this week, so basically all I did was workout and clean. See?

It’s weird working out when the sun is up.

So that was my weekend! Probably the best one I’ve had in a long, long time! πŸ™‚ I work tonight until 7 p.m. and tomorrow I work 8-11 a.m. before I head up to my parent’s house for dinner with the fam. Friday I head to MKE to pick up some boy to come with me to a wedding this weekend. πŸ˜‰

How was your weekend? Ready for a short week?

      Yes, definitely! I guess it just shows we’re actually having a conversation instead of worrying about telling people on social. πŸ˜‰
