Cubs and Chick-fil-A

Finally downloaded my photos from Labor Day weekend and thought I would share a little bit of what we did in the lovely city of Chicago.  A little shopping, some delicious chicken sandwiches, and a bit of Cubs were in the mix.  We headed to Michigan Avenue and our first stop was one of my favorite fast food places, Chick-fil-A!  Since it has opened this summer I’ve gone three times, not exactly diet friendly food, but it is so delicious I can’t avoid it when I’m on Michigan Avenue.  We did a little bit of shopping, but I’m saving my energy for the Topshop shopping preview tomorrow!

Saturday we spend the day at the Cubs game and as you see, I dressed casually to support the team!  I am not a huge sports fan, but I’ve got to say going to a Cubs game is something anyone visiting or living in Chicago has to do.  The stadium is the perfect size; you can see from any seat and it’s smaller than the new fields, and the fans here are dedicated.  After downing a hot dog, nachos and a beer I wasn’t feeling too well, but you can’t go to a game without eating the food.

I’ve come across some fantastic blogs through my comments and excited to have some new followers! Blogging has been such a great way to stay creative and meet friends everywhere.  Thanks for the support and lovely comments.  By the way, if you are on twitter, connect with me, I love keeping up to date with peeps daily.

A final share of my weekend, my living room needed artwork and I took the plunge and did my first piece.  Taking in colors from our home, I just gave it a go.  I love it!  I’m sure not the most artistic but makes me happy when I see it.

    I love the greys and texture in your living room – and my personal take is that the Chick is probably better than some of the other fast food places out there, and if you've got a craving why fight it?

    I really love your sofa! Can i ask where it's from? We just bought a new bed and I was this close to getting a grey velvet upholstered bed in similar style. We ended up getting a mid century style instead, mostly because it was a much better deal. Now I have my eye on your couch though!! And I love chick fil a!!

    Aww, you're such a cute couple! And your hair looks fantastic in the first set of pix. Those soft waves are beautiful on you. I agree with you on sports… they aren't so exciting, but attending games is fun. The energy in the ballpark is invigorating.

    Just wanted to comment that I love your hair! Do you mind sharing how to get the color and what products you use to style it? I love how it looks black in some pictures and some show the brown. It really shows off the layers in your hair.

    Jen you look fabulous as always-and I love that this post is about Chick-fil-A (my favorite are the nuggets with bbq sauce)-but I really adore your painting! It looks wonderfully professional and it's inspiring me to make a piece of artwork for my place instead of buying something (like I was planning on doing).xxErin @ http://www.trufflesnruffles.com/
