I flew up this Monday and arrived around 8:30 in the morning to visit one of my closest friend who moved there about three years ago. This was my second trip, so it was more relaxed, since I have already seen all the touristy sights. We headed to the "beach" for the afternoon. I put beach in quotation marks, because in order to have a beach you must have salt water and waves.

It's sold out but this is a similar one from J.Crew Factory currently on sale
|I wore overalls of course.|
The next day we visited a cute little diner in the morning, and baked (surprise, surprise) in the afternoon. I'll be sharing the recipes with you soon. Then we went to dinner at Francesca's Tavola, which was amazing. It was such a nice little restaurant and the food was delicious.

My outfit: Shirt-Anthropologie, Jeans-Paige,
After that we headed to a unique pet store with a clever name. The Corner Barkery had all sorts of fascinating treats, some of which disgusted me, but I found some souvenirs for my four legged friends back here in Texas. Then we stumbled upon the CUTEST bakery, Sweet T's. I could have moved in their. I had to be dragged out. I honestly would have sat there for hours just soaking it all in. They also make killer cinnamon rolls.

My flight Thursday evening ended up being a little delayed, but I got home in time to sleep in my own bed. As much fun as I had in Chicago, I'm so glad to be home.
