We had a fun weekend celebrating Billy’s 9th birthday mixed in with a little St. Patricks Day celebration.  We tried to convince Billy that they dyed the river green for him since it’s his favorite color but I don’t think he cared what the reason was, he thought it was pretty great.  Downtown Chicago is one of my favorite places, I don’t think you can run out of new places to explore, there’s so much to do!  I love that the weather is warming up and we can get outside and explore this new place we call home.

While we were downtown we went to The Doughnut Vault.  Billy’s obsessed with donuts and is determined to try all the donut shops in Chicago, it’s going to take a while!  We’ve heard that The Doughnut Vault has the best donuts in Chicago so we thought we’d give it a go.  The line was long, super long, like wrapped around the block long but we were determined to try it and see if it lives up to the hype.  They didn’t disappoint, they were delish!  So if you’re in Chicago and craving donuts look them up and try them out.  We also love Stan’s Donuts and I think Firecakes Donuts is my favorite but they have an ice cream donut so that’s almost cheating!  Do-Rite Donuts will be our next donut stop.

I’ve linked what we’re all wearing here…

I’m so ready for the weekend!!  It’s been a busy week at our house and next week will be just as crazy but I’m ready to spend some much needed time with my family.

I’m keeping it casual today, it’s all about comfort!  Tonight I’ll swap out the sweater for a cute jacket and the flats for some leopard heels to make it work for a little date night.

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you have a great weekend!!

This outfit is inspired by my son Billy, he’s obsessed with everything Military.  He’d dress head to toe camo if I let him, thank goodness I still have a say when it comes to what he wears to school (after school is another story).  When I saw this t-shirt at Target it made me think of him and I had to get it.  I added a cute cardigan and a statement necklace to glam it up a bit.  And can we talk about these booties?  I saw these on the Nine West website and had to have them, I’m obsessed!

Be sure to check back later this week, I’m going to start sharing little gifts I give and this week it’s what I give the hostess when invited for dinner (hint… I don’t drink so it’s not wine).  Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great week!
