Friday links

28 Feb


This weekend, we’re finishing up watching the rest of the Best Picture nominees before a friend’s Oscar party on Sunday. Other than that, should be fairly relaxing. Have a great one!

Happy Friday friends!

This weekend, I’m continuing on my journey to see all 9 films nominated for Best Picture before the Oscars. So far I’ve seen Dallas Buyers Club and Captain Phillips. Tomorrow I’m knocking out 12 Years a Slave and possibly Her. And now for the links…

Happy Friday! St. Paddy’s Day is a big deal in Chicago, so this weekend we’ll be partaking in the festivities, including going downtown to see the river dyed green and consuming a few pints of Guinness. Hope you all have a great weekend!

How were y’all’s weeks? Tyler and I had a delicious dinner at Telegraph in Logan Square  last night (we ordered the lamb meatballs, mushroom tartine, and heublumen cheese – all delish). I love going out to eat. This weekend is the last without something planned for quite some time. Max relaxing going on fa sha.

Have a wonderful weekend!

12 Jan


Well, so much for my “be a better blogger” resolution. However, I have a somewhat legit reason for not posting Friday links yesterday. My plan was to post them once I got home from work, but Tyler and I went to see Lincoln (so good) and when we got home, discovered something that had me screaming like the girl that I am, standing on our dining room table and taking an 11pm trip to Walgreens. More on that later…
