Gaudi: December 21st, 2011

Event: Day w/Sarah, night w/Andrea & Laura in Chicgo

Outfit: Dress: MissMe via Flirt; Boots: Diba via DSW; Hat: H&M

After walking Maria to the train Wednesday morning, Sarah and I indulged in some nice napping. We then enjoyed a delicious brunch at Southport Grocery. The grilled coffee cake? Heaven. The hash browns were not bad either (and the coffee was much-needed and tasty). Even found a couple of gifts in the “shop” area.

Sarah and I spent the afternoon making homemade marshmallows (yum!), doing a very intense OnDemand workout video, and lounging with books and Christmas movies. I later met up with study abroad friends Laura & Andrea for a delicious dinner at Quartino (site of my first blogger meet-up). We split two yummy pizzas, a litre of Chianti, and then could not resist ordering tiramisu and Italian donuts. WINNING.

We ended the night with a beer at Fado’ (an Irish pub I’ve always liked) and I got to share a smidgen of my Metra ride home with Andrea. Here’s to a little mini-vacation in Chicago with a lot of my favorite ladies!

P.S. Post is entitled “Gaudi” as Laura, Andrea, and I originally came together to see this film. It still looked awesome but, um, we decided a long dinner with lots of catching up was more the ticket for tonight. 😉
