There is nothing that brings me more joy than throwing things away. I love getting rid of clutter! It is the very, very best feeling. We live in such a small space that I always try to not let things just accumulate. Recently, we went through our apartment and moved a bunch of books and all of my old law school notes out of our apartment. I also got rid of a ton of clothes that I had not worn in the past year. It is slightly embarrassing how much clutter we had accumulated over the past two years. We packed up everything we wanted to save, packed it into our Enterprise Car and drove it back to my sweet mom’s basement. I love using Enterprise CarShare because it allows us city kids to rent a car for a few hours and not have to worry about the hassle of actually owning one! Go here to sign up for Enterprise CarShare and the first year’s fees are waived! We wanted to make sure that we cleaned out our apartment because we are not going to be there most of this summer, which is a whole different blog post 🙂

^^ Sunday nights call for Chinese takeout 🙂

^^ I love going back to Hinsdale for the day and riding bikes through the town. It is so fun to bike ride in the suburbs and not have to worry about a million cars!

Is anyone else watching Chef’s Table on Netflix?! It is so good and we just cannot stop watching! I absolutely LOVED the sweet Italian chef from the first episode! He just completely adored his wife and it felt like he had a much better work life balance than all the other chefs we have watched so far. The other chefs are so intense and so quirky .. it is such good TV! We also binge watched all of the Abstract original series which was ALSO amazing. I cannot believe how many talented people there are in the world. I love how shows like Chef’s Table and Abstract give you an inside look into these super star creative’s lives. It is so fun to see how these super star creative people are so passionate about their work. Netflix is creating such amazing new content and I just cannot stop watching! I cannot believe how fast this weekend flew by! Gah! I know it is not Memorial Day weekend but I had to wear these white pants because a person can only wear the same jeans for so long! Black and white is such a classic easy combo.

Growing up in my childhood home, my bedroom overlooked a magnolia tree. Whenever the sun shone on the magnolia tree’s pink flowers my bedroom would be flooded with the most gorgeous soft pink light. It was total and complete heaven. Magnolia trees are fickle creatures. One big storm and their pink flowers are washed away never to return for the rest of the season. I used to pray that it would not rain so that I could enjoy those gorgeous flowers as long as possible. Magnolia trees have always had such a special place in my heart and someday I hope that we will have one wherever Matt and I end up living. I wore this dress from Tobi.com for Easter and it can so easily be worn out for drinks or for a family gathering with a great cashmere sweater. I love the nude color. All of the Magnolia trees are in full bloom in the suburbs and it was almost too much for my magnolia tree loving heart! Get outside and in the midst of these blooming trees as soon as you possibly can!

You know it is finally spring in Chicago when the trees finally begin blooming with beautiful white and pink flowers. My complete obsession with flower trees begins once again and everything is right in the world. It felt like all the flowers bloomed this weekend! Matt always knows that I will demand that we stop everything that we might be doing to take a picture of tree that is spilling over with flowers. We spent this past weekend running from one fun friend and family even to the next. I love weekends that are filled good food and friends. I love this romper from Tobi.com because it is perfect for spring days. It has the best floaty sleeves and light enough to spend all day in the sun. I love rompers because they are an instant outfit that contain shorts! There is nothing better than an instant outfit when you are short on time and heading out for a fun Saturday afternoon.

It is finally starting to feel like spring again in Chicago! Praise the Lawd! This past weekend we rented a a car from Enterprise CarShare and drove out to Rockford, where Matt was playing for the weekend. Rockford is about an hour and half outside of Chicago. It was so fun to get the chance to get out of the city even just for a little bit and we could not have done it without a car! We had the first glimpse of sun in about a week and we made a run for the outdoors!  Whenever we drive anywhere for any extended period of time, we always stop at Dairy Queen. There are few things I love more than a chocolate dipped cone from DQ. I love getting uninterrupted weekend time with Matt. We always have so much fun exploring new places together and this weekend was no different. Because I have not owned a car in the past 10 years, Matt refuses to let me drive because he thinks my driving skills are a little rusty. I would beg differ 🙂 We love Enterprise CarShare and use their cars all the time and always have the best experience. Sign up here and the first year’s membership fees are waived!
