The weather in Chicago warmed up so fast and suddenly this weekend, that no one knew what to wear. Seriously, it’s this time of year that gets weird, and nothing in your wardrobe seems to make sense anymore. While running errands the last couple of days (basically every task we’ve put off in the last few weeks), we admired the bravery of those that wore tank tops (it wasn’t that warm!), wondered whether or not to layer our jackets, and switched from snow boots to slip-ons. I considered sticking to the comfort of wool scarves and earmuffs, but the 50-degree temperatures had me choosing only one of the two (the scarf – always the scarf).
Because today is supposed to be in the 30s again (boo!), we took advantage of the quick weather warm-up and spent our Sunday afternoon along the lakefront, followed by a celebratory treat of frozen yogurt. Extra chocolate on mine, of course.
Oh, celebratory, because no fools – we also spent our weekend over paperwork and contracts, initialing and signing our way into a new home purchase. It happened so fast! We were surprised, too. We’ve put The (Unreal) One behind us, and we’ve moved on. We’re cautiously optimistic, but we’re also holding our tongues until we’re in the clear – and we’re not there yet. Soon, though.
Please tell us you ate your weight in chocolate bunnies this weekend?
