Happy summer Fridays! I can’t believe summer is starting to wind down already and summer Fridays are coming to an end. It’s like I blinked and she was gone. Or nearly gone. I will admit that I’m looking forward to turning off our AC units and letting in some fresh air. However, I am 1000% not ready for what the winter months will bring.
What have you got going on this weekend?
EATING & DRINKING
I’m utterly obsessed with my Chicken Enchiladas Verdes for obvious reasons. They’re easy, quick to whip up, and so-freakin-delicious.
Matt and I went golfing with my parents about a week ago and my stepmom, Lynn, told my dad to order Matt “one of those fancy beers” at the turn. Matt ended up with this delicious locally-brewed beer by Ravinia Brewing Company. OMG. It is delicious. We need to make a trip out to Logan Square or Highland Park for tacos and beer.
I’ve been buying bananas like crazy lately. And we haven’t been eating them before they go bad so I obviously have to make banana bread. (Side note: has anyone else noticed the price of bananas has gone up like, 20 cents in the last 2 years? It’s the one item that I always knew the price of because it was the same since I started grocery shopping.)
My sister Megan’s bachelorette party is coming up in a couple weeks! A couple of her friends took the planning reigns since I didn’t have the time to plan this time around (after her first was cancelled due to COVID) and they’ve done such a good job. I’m currently on the hunt for 90s and space disco cowboy inspired looks.
After Megan’s bachelorette, literally the next day, Matt and I are heading off to Utah for a few days! We’re looking forward to some good ol’ fashioned nature at Zion National Park. If you’ve got any tips for us, lay ‘em on me in the comments.
I bought an exercise dress from Amazon a couple months ago and only recently started wearing it. And now I won’t take it off! It’s so comfy and easy for post-shower chilling, running errands, or walking the dog. It has pockets in the built-in shorts, too, for keys, your phone, or golf/tennis balls! Speaking of exercise dresses, how cute is this Outdoor Voices Polo Dress?!?! Preppy dreams.
I’m also obsessed with my new all-white New Balance sneaks… so much so that I’m thinking of getting a second pair (in a different color-way, obviously)!
How freakin’ cute is this powder blue rain jacket from Athleta?! It’s an absolute necessity. And whether you like it or not – masks are back! At least in Illinois. Huge fan of my Athleta gym masks – they don’t hold on to a ton of moisture and the straps are adjustable! I semi-successfully completed a Barry’s class in one the other day. (I say semi-successfully because holycrap it was hard.)
