Here is a quick rundown of some of the things we have been up to lately. An update is clearly needed. This post will be really random just fyi.

This last weekend the boys took Saturday night off early so we could spend a night in the city.  We took the train from where we live into Union Station where we planned on walking through the city and finding a good place to chow down.

Tate :)

Turns out everything was closed because we were in the financial district.  We really didn't think on a Saturday night that it would be completely dead.  But it was.  Not to mention it was pouring down rain and we were running around trying to find food to feed our empty bellies.  The rain was so bad we took a taxi to drive like 3 blocks.  Ridiculous how much those things cost.  Finally we came across Giordano's which is a famous stuffed pizza restaurant.  Eh.  It was alright.  We had it last year too and it just didn't do it for me.  My favorite Chicago pizza by far is Lou Malnatis.  If you come to Chicago this place is a must!

 Brit and Cody soaked after running around in the rain.

My computer died early on so sadly this is all I have of that night.  Even though it didn't go as planned, it was still such a fun/random night.

Since Branson and the other boys are out working all day, the girls have been spending a lot of time together!  Brittany and Kenz have introduced me to Prison Break.

I'm hooked.  We have watched 7 episodes in like 2 days.  May or may not be because we get to stare at Wentworth Miller the whole time... Who knows.

There is also a dollar theater close by so we have decided to make a weekly trip to watch a good flick.  Last week we saw Never Say Never.  It was a first for all of us and I have to say we were all pretty pleased.  He is just adorable.

Branson and I also had a date night a couple weekends ago and we saw Something Borrowed.  We loved it!  However, I am not a good movie critic.  I pretty much love any good chick flick.  Cheesy or not.  Even if I know the ending before it has even started.  But i'd recommend it.

One of my new favorite ways to pass the time is on Pinterest.  If you haven't made an account I would highly recommend it.  It's amazing and I can't believe I didn't think of this myself.  I have SO many folders on my computer of pictures that I have saved over time and this is a much easier and more organized way to do it.  I'm in love.  You can follow me HERE!

Aaaaand this is all I have for now folks.
