This weekend was CRAZY again.
On Friday I was supposed to take the train to Elgin to go with my cousin to a picnic her school organized. So I wake up birght and early to get to Union Station and board the 9:30 train on time. Well, I took the train on time, but the WRONG train!!! I was supposed to take the train number 11 and I took train number 9, because they leave from the same gate. Feeling stupid, I got to my destination and had to take another train to Elgin. I finally got there at noon. I missed the picnic, of course!
|in the right train, finally!|
I tried to make it up to her and we went to the mall. The mall is HUGE. I've never seen a mall that big! I don't even think we finished exploring it in it's entirity. I bought a belt, sunglasses and stockings at Charlotte Russe and drooled over all the pretty underwear at Gilly Hicks.
We ate at Subway (I still have plenty of coupons, so we'll be eating a lot os subs this days) and I had the veggie patty for the first time. I liked it! I also had the broccoli cheese soup. I love it, it's so good!
We didn't do much that day, we slept all afternoon. My legs hurted from an ellyptical session the day before and I haven't been getting enough sleep, so the nap was much needed!
On Saturday we went for a walk around Elgin. They have a beautiful lake with ducks and a lot of forest where you can actually see deer playing around. I also saw a buffalo. It was impressive! We fed the baby deer (♥) and went back home for lunch.

We left home at about 6:30 to attend the Lifehouse show at the Ravinia Festival! it was amazing! We acted sooo lady-like and drank white wine all afternoon! I loved it. We had such a great time, and the show was awesome.
On Sunday we came back to Chicago and drove a couple of hours to Indiana to go to an outlet mall. I was needing jackets, boots, scarfs, everything! I came to Chicago without any winter clothes, and rumor has it that the cold weather will start soon! I didn't buy much at the end, though, because the stores close at 6 p.m. and we got there at 5. I bought a jacket and a hat.
We also went to Simone's bar again. I love it there, but there wasn't much people and the crowd was kind of old. I might return but on Friday or Saturday!
By the way, I finally found a Trader Joe's! Yay!!!! I bought a TON of stuff, including an amazing tray of sushi I devoured last night:
How was your weekend lovepies? :)
