Busy busy busy

  So I'm pretty far behind in my blog posts but my computer was on the fritz. Luckily, Max is a super genius and after a lot of time and effort he fixed it for me. :) He's the best! I'm lucky to have such a tech savvy man. But now I have a bunch of things that I wanted to share with you guys from last week so let's get started. On the 21st I went to the city for my cousin, Christina's birthday! It was an awesome time and great to hang out with my family at bars in the city! I felt so.. like Liz. Drinking in Wrigleyville with a bunch of people. haha (Get what I'm saying Anna?)

Liz went too and she actually picked me up and we drove in together. But before we left I had her snap a few shots of my outfit and I even got her to let me take hers! :D

Shirt: F21
Skirt: Ross
Belt: F21
Shoes: Ross

Earrings: Etsy
Clutch: Target


Dress: Express
Necklace: Old Navy
Shoes: Target

So Liz drove us to the city and that was.. an adventure. haha Parking in the city was so hectic but we found one and finally got to join the party. It was really fun just bar hopping and Christina was buzzin' pretty good. There were a lot of bachelor and bachelorette parties going on that night too. Seriously saw like 10 different groups. I don't really go to the city very often for being this close but when I do it's always a good time.

And then after a few drinks here and there we tried to head home. Unfortunately, we lost the car. haha We parked and then dropped a pin on Liz's phone but it didn't actually drop it where we were so when we followed the pin it ended up being waaay off. So we were wandering around for like 45 minutes just trying to figure it out because, of course, we didn't look to see what street we parked on. Oh man. But we made it back and finally got home. PHEW!

So all in all it was a fun weekend. Liz left on sunday to go on vacation with her husband and his family so I was watching her house and her pup. It was nice because I felt like I had a home away from home. I felt like an adult making dinner with Max every night. Speaking of I have a lot of recipes to share with you guys! I found all of these on Pinterest. I don't know where I'd be right now without it! 

We got a few good ideas off with their amazing casseroles. We also had this dish one night and the next night as left overs. It was the perfect dinner for beer and chips and salsa. We also made this pie for dessert one night. Long hard process but we did that to ourselves. 

I'll space out my posts a bit so this is all for now!
