Weekend Recap: The Weekend I Forgot to Take Pictures

Good morning and happy Monday! It’s officially my LAST week at my current job, and while it’s going to be a trying week, I’m excited it’s finally here. I celebrated by waking up late, forgetting to put on makeup and buying myself an overpriced coffee – woohoo!

Also, apologies for the lack of blogs lately. I promise I will get back on track!

So, last Thursday I worked downtown with my client for the last time. 🙁 It was also my friend’s last day with the company as well, so after work we headed over to a bar for a drink or two to celebrate. She’s the girl that somehow takes incredible candids of me … like this:

Friday I ended up working from home. It ended up being a slightly busy day, even though Fridays are usually pretty dead. I got in an upper body workout with Ben …

Boomerangin’ into the weekend 💁🏼💁🏼‍♂️

I spent the rest of the afternoon working and then logged off around 5:30. We made some last minute plans with Ben’s friends to get Korean BBQ (I don’t remember the name of the place) and then proceeded to eat about 500 lbs of protein each. 😉

Saturday morning started off pretty early and we took off to the Fit Expo in one of the suburbs to watch Ben’s cousin compete in a power lifting competition. It ended up being an all day adventure (and Andrew won – woo!) before we took off for home to quickly throw together an outfit to get BACK in the car to head to Milwaukee.

Once in MKE, we hung out with my friend Saige & Joel, then met up with Heather & Josh (#tripledate) at Wolf Peach – an amazing restaurant in Milwaukee. HIGHLY recommend. After dinner we headed over to Comedy Sportz, an improv comedy show that’s only $10 – soooo worth it! Then back to Saige’s for house.

On Sunday, Joel, Saige, Ben & I headed over to a brunch spot called Story Hill BKC and it was spectacular. I didn’t take any pictures, but Ben did.

After brunch, Ben and I headed back to Chicago for the rest of the day. I had a killer headache, so we chilled out at my apartment for the night – made spaghetti, watched Harry Potter and went to bed later than we should have. BUT the puppy breeder did send me a new picture! 🙂

And now it’s Monday! Thursday is my last day this week, so the rest of the week I’ll basically be passing things off to other people! And celebrating come Thursday at 5 p.m. – woohoo!

How was your weekend?
