Thursday night we were just chilling watching New Girl (the usual) when I get an email on my phone from Mirhad. I was super confused and I see at the top it says, “Get ready for your trip coming up on…” and it cut off. So I open up the email and he booked a night for us to go to Chicago on Saturday!!! I was surprised and he had the biggest smile on his face after I opened it. I worked on Friday and we packed Saturday morning before we left, it was super quick since we only needed like one outfit and our PJ’s. We got there around 12pm and started exploring right away. He said he wanted to take me to Chicago to look at Christmas lights and go ice-skating (which I’ve been saying I wanted to do all Winter long) so it was so sweet of him to surprise me like that! We didn’t get to go ice-skating because the line was 2+ hours long, so we said another time. We still had fun though and I got to cross something off of my winter bucket list!
I have some awesome pictures I took, but also some cute pictures he took of me 🙂
Overall, Chicago was cold, but not as cold as I expected it to be. Like you could still go outside as long as you’re bundled up, kind of like STL too. Pics below!
Happy Labor Day, do I even say that? Don’t know, but I said it anyways! A lot of people are off today and I am one of those people (thankfully). Feels nice to not have to go to work today and to have a shorter week. This week will be a rough one and I will be so happy on Friday when it’s all over lol. At least I get to work from home a lot of the days so that’s nice.
Have to clean the house today, this weekend has been crazy so everything is a mess, but until then I just want to chill out and relax a bit. We have to go grocery shopping today too.
22 more days until the trip!!! I even made a little widget that has a countdown for me, not that I need another one or anything 😀 I cannot wait to get out of here for a little bit, get away from all work related stress and just enjoy my time where I love to be the most with the person I love the most ❤ Since this is a trip that requires a bit more planning, I need to write a to do list + things I need to buy + things I need to pack. Thinking I may do that today or sometime this week if I have time.
This weekend was good, went out with my friends Saturday night and it was really fun. The bridal shower + wedding were fun, too. I am just so tired from this weekend lol. I need like a weekend to recover.
Going to go start writing those lists, see ya! 🙂
