I did some exploring around Chicago over the past few days (perks of having odd hours now and having a few days free to spend quality time with me, myself and I) and was lucky enough to attend the wedding of a high school friend. We met in choir and she asked all of us to sing in her wedding, including our old choir teacher! It was a serious blast from the past, and was just one of the reasons that this was such a beautiful weekend! I’ve never participated in Marvelous in my Monday via Healthy Diva Eats, but today I knew would be a great week to start.
- What was the best part of your weekend?
- Do you ever wander around where you live just to explore?
- Best thing you ate this weekend?
Love that green dress on you! Ahh you are making me miss Chicago!
Aw thanks! It was a sunny and bright dress for a sunny and bright weekend 🙂
How nice that she asked you all it sing at her wedding 🙂
I love the idea of the date night ideas jar too!
I know I loved it! Such an inexpensive but special way to decorate at the reception. We all had a blast with our suggestions 🙂
OMG is that chicken shaped like a heart on purpose? Because that’s the best wedding chicken I’ve ever seen. I love all the little details (and the something blue cocktail? BRILLIANT!) Great photos, friend!
Best eats from the weekend was definitely the crab feast food. It was only the second time this summer I’ve been able to enjoy them and it was SO GOOD.
I don’t think it was on purpose but I noticed that too! So adorable 🙂
You are sooo adorable!! You look gorgeous!! Your feet are very cute, too!! XOXO!! Happy Monday!! Have a fabulous week!!
You are TOO kind! Happy Monday 🙂
haha I just wrote a piece for my work blog (that is posting tomorrow, actually) about the art of the Staycation! Glad you got out and enjoyed Chicago some–and YAY for weddings. Weddings with your friends (as opposed to family) are just the best. And that green dress is top freaking notch.
You can live in Chicago and still feel like you’re on vacation every weekend – there’s always something new to do/discover!
the sig cocktail being “something blue” and the date night idea popsicle sticks are such cute touches. best part of my wknd was seeing the fam and the boy upstate. 🙂
They were perfect ideas for sure – glad you had a good weekend!
Great shots! I always enjoy exploring new areas AND my hometown while on runs. The wedding looks fabulous too!
Yeah running is even better because you get to see so much so fast !
Aw, how cool that you all got to sing in your friend’s wedding! That’s awesome that you got to be a part of her and her husband’s day in that way 🙂
Yeah I was so nervous but it ended up being an awesome, unforgettable experience
So fun! Weddings are the best. They always have great food and cake of course!
The cake OMG – best frosting of my life!
Awesome, weddings are so much fun!!
It was my first time going to a full wedding – ceremony and reception – and I loved it! Such a cool experience
Ahhh the perks of having flexible hours! That is such a neat idea for a wedding- I’m impressed you guys were all able to be grouped at the same time!
I know right? It was close to me luckily but some people flew in!
Beautiful pictures! And you look so lovely!
I love wondering around Glasgow and exploring, always find something new and amazing, this city is just full of surprises!
I know! Stumbling upon that lily pond made my day and I Never even knew it was there
I just love photos and should take far more than I do! They truly make you appreciate the little things in life 🙂
I usually take just food photos but man there were just so many beautiful things in nature to photograph this weekend and I’m so glad I did 🙂
