Happy Monday everyone! It was a lovely long weekend in Chicago with stunning weather and a to do list a mile long on my kitchen table.
Seriously, I use these long weekends to get a lot done and check things off my list so I don’t have to worry about it during the week when things are crazy.
Yeah…turns out I only got about half of the things I wanted to done because I was too busy…relaxin’ or hanging out with friends.
But it wasn’t a total wash, I got the following things done: dust, clean the bathroom, pay bills, balance the checkbook, upgrade to iLife ’09, contemplate getting the new iPhone 4, buy Oberon, shop with TC (who is a bad influence in the best way), return items to the Gap and…BREAK IN THE ROOMBA. OMG, I can’t wait to tell you all more about that later this week.
I also saw two movies, Going the Distance (review is up!) and The Other Guys (review forthcoming). I love being back at the movies :)
What didn’t get done: Plan my trip to Denver which is NEXT WEEK OMG, actually upgrade to iPhone 4, clean the kitchen, recycle old magazines, start reading my new book, “My Hollywood.”
So…I’ll say it’s a partial win for this weekend.
I also dined out a few nights this weekend too as a little treat and of course, I have some photos to share :)
Tableside presentation of Peking duck at Sun Wah BBQ (yes, I went back for more, I’m obsessed and it was amazing)
Kamikaze roll at Sushi Toro (I LOVE sushi)
Pork belly with potato chips and sesame spinach at Chilam Balam (a new-ish Mexican restaurant that I’m in love with)
So yes, I didn’t get everything productive done that I wanted to, but it felt good to have a few days off, and well, isn’t Labor Day supposed to be a bit more relaxing? Maybe?
How about everyone else? Did you have a lazy or productive weekend? Did you get everything done you wanted to?
