How’s your weekend been going? I’ve been having an absolutely wonderful one! Yesterday was Mitch’s birthday, and his parents drove up to Chicago to surprise him. He knew I’d made reservations at a restaurant, but he didn’t know where and he certainly didn’t think his parents were joining us! Seriously: cutest thing ever. The guy is a family man through-and-through (one of the many reasons I married him!), and I loved watching his reaction when the waitress led us to our table. :)
I should mention that Mitch did this for me last year (awww), and I just copied his idea. Couldn’t help myself!
We’ve been spending our time watching the Cubs and the Bears, and eating and drinking our way through Chicago. ;) OH! And enjoying our new farmhouse table, which my in-laws brought up. (Thank you, guys!) Mitch and his dad built it down at his parents’ house in September, and it’s everything. I can’t wait to share photos this week.
Let’s just say it’s been the perfect weekend. The October weather has been cool and crisp, and it finally feels like fall is upon us. It’s time for football, pumpkin-flavored coffee, and of course, fall premieres! (Don’t you just love snuggling up on the couch for a good TV show in the fall?)

I’m most excited about Chicago Fire, which I’d never really watched before, but have LOVED catching up on. (I mean, hey! I’m a Windy City Girl now, right?!) I’ve been watching it at Jess‘ place (where these photos were taken) between work sessions, and I’ve loved having it on while working on projects. XFINITY On Demand has been awesome for bringing me up to date… I love that we can record old and new episodes episodes while watching other shows.
