Starbucks & Evening Stroll

Happy Monday everyone!

We hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend! We had a relaxing weekend more so indoors since Spring is moody and the temperature dropped to 40 degrees on Friday–what a disappointment! Regardless, everyday can be a good day with Starbucks in hand and a romantic stroll with the husband at the park.

Sunday at the Chicago Theatre

Happy Tuesday everyone!

This past Sunday Umair and I went to the Russell Peters show which we had been looking forward to for quite some time. Umair and I saw an ad for the show last year one day when we were walking past the Chicago theatre and we knew we couldn’t miss it. The show was as hilarious as we expected and there wasn’t a dull moment even the opening act was quite funny.  Sunday became a wonderful date night out and a nice ending to our weekend.  I’m not sure of the schedule of the show or where the next performance will be but we highly recommend checking it out!

Iron Man 3 review & HOOTD deets

Hello everyone! Our usual Friday consists of going out for our date night however this week we decided to order in and catch a late showing of Iron Man 3 in 3D.  We both loved the movie (myself especially since I can’t resist Robert Downey Jr. in the Iron Man).  Following in our K.I.S.S review which we will do for movies we watch which mostly include action thrillers since Umair is a self-proclaimed geeky movie buff.

Beautiful Spring Day

Hi everyone!

I’m loving May! Yesterday was the perfect Spring day with the sun shining, 80 degrees, flowers, shopping & a great lunch date with the husband to top it off!

April Showers Bring May Flowers (& warmer weather please!)

Hi you!

I can’t believe it’s April and I have yet to update this blog! Where is the year going?

There really isn’t much to update since Spring aka warmer weather this year seems to have skipped over! I’ve been looking forward for nicer weather since the end of February which was about the time my fascination for Winter was diminishing.  Basically, the past few months I’ve been shopping away for Spring/Summer outfits and sandals hoping to wear them soon but I’m still stepping out with my lighter winter coats! Anywhoo….I’ll do a quick recap of our life since December.

-Mid December my sister came to visit us during her Winter break.  We had a lot of fun with her even though it was pretty cold! We managed to check out the Shedd aquarium, Lincoln Park zoo, Willis Tower, Grant & Millennium Park, Navy Pier (saw the fireworks there during New Years Eve which turned out to be a great experience), shopping on Michigan ave, Devon (ate at Sabri Nihari–though my sister refused to try the nihari *smh*), and of course introduced her to the famous deep dish pizza & Chicago style hot dog! It was quite an eventful few weeks where we even gave her a taste of public transportation.

-January was pretty cold! I don’t remember doing anything worth noting.

-February was fun despite the frigid cold weather.  There were a few birthdays *ahem ahem* and of course Valentines day.  For my birthday the husband surprised me by taking me to RPM, a restaurant I’ve been dying to go for many months and after several not-so-subtle hints we finally had dinner there.  I loved the food and especially the ambiance at RPM but would not recommend for families with kids.  Valentines day we didn’t go out because I decided to surprise the husband with a romantic dinner.

-March has also been fairly cold for this time of year, or as everyone has been telling me.  There have been a few weekends with amazing weather and thus we have taken advantage by going out and doing our usual shopping, dining, and exploring.

-April has lately been filled with shopping and outings at Devon since I’m helping my family prep for my brother’s wedding in the Summer.  We are all looking forward to all the exciting festivities and of course the family reunion!

For the future, my goal is to come up a with a weekly schedule to update or have some special weekly features for this blog that will help me stay on top of blogging.  We’ll at least that is the hope for now.  Until then see ya’.

xoxo
