It's been an exhausting weekend from a baby shower, to a wedding, to a funeral, and a Halloween & Chili Cook-Off party. The Mister and I sat on the couch last night after the little Man was asleep and all the dishes put away and just savored a few quiet moments with our feet up and not having anything to do, that was until the dog needed to be walked. Sunday was particularly rough as we stood by a friend as he said goodbye to his dad. Words can't express how difficult a situation that must be, but he spoke at his father's funeral and promised his mom that she would never be as sad as she is today ever again. Needless to say, I went home and hugged my little Man.
Our weekend started off with a surprise baby shower for a co-worker at Vosges Haut Chocolat in Lincoln Park. It was such a fun way to spoil the mommy-to-be, and indulge in delicious truffles paired with champagne. Our Halloween and chili cook-off party last night was a success, and I'll be sharing that with you soon. In the meantime, you can check out the inspiration for the party here. As for our Halloween costumes, we went as a family of Mad Scientists. Happy Monday!
