weekend recap: sweet home chicago

Happy Monday!

I hope all of you had a fantastic weekend. I've been home in Chicago since Thursday, and have been doing all of my favorite things.

I spent the day downtown on Friday meeting with people, and visiting my Dad/Brother at work. Love the "Sears" Tower (I refuse to call it anything else...Willis what?)

Saturday I went out with some of my best girlfriends. I miss them terribly when I'm in NYC. 

Fun fact: I was a figure skater when I was younger. 
Seriously. So when I discovered the Kristi Yamaguchi was going to be at the local bookstore yesterday, I just HAD to go.

She read her new Children's book, and then did some Q&A. My favorite question/answer:

Question: What are your thoughts on practice makes perfect?
Kristi: I think that practice makes pretty good. If it made perfect, we would stop trying. You should always be striving for something better, and always working on your craft.

Carly and I had brunch yesterday. She is as sweet in person, as on her blog. Seriously love her. If it weren't for her coming to my town, I would have never seen that Kristi was coming. Thanks Carly! 

And of course, I was with my little noodle Penny Lane all weekend. She's such a doll. 

And I leave you with possibly the greatest song right now. And the video is the best. 

Selena Gomez + Justin Beiber + Ashley Tisdale = perfection (the Disney kid in me is VERY happy)

Perfection. SO SO SO GREAT meeting you! Had such a blast. I'm just so sad I missed Kristi. Um, I wrote about this song too today in my post. We were meant to be friends, and we shall listen to it every morning in NYC. You're the best! xo

It sounds like you had a great weekend. How awesome is it that you got to meet Kristi?! And I have a sad obsession with that song as well- it's been on repeat for about 2 weeks.
