A Day at the Botanic Gardens

IMG_1075What are you up to this weekend? Last night Dan and I went to the newly opened Soho House for drinks after work, and then I got home and my throat started hurting. Hopefully with some rest today (along with some Emergen-C) it’ll go away. Since I’m just hanging out watching The Mindy Project, I thought I’d share these photos from two weekends ago when Dan and I jetted out of this town for a glorious fall afternoon at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. It was a beautiful day and we were lucky to have a car loaned to us for the weekend! (We also used it to see Guardians of Galaxy, which was so good! Funny and cute, action-packed, plus Chris Pratt is adorable. Also, good soundtrack.)

Anyhow, the Botanic Gardens are insanely pretty and someone I know needs to get married there stat (actually not sure if they allow weddings but that would be so good).  Get ready for a feast for the eyes:

^Flowers every where.  Dahlias are the best. Especially the Bahama Mama variety…IMG_1087 IMG_1088 IMG_1089 IMG_1100 IMG_1103 IMG_5268 IMG_5276 IMG_5281 IMG_5290

So pretty! Now, go enjoy the rest of your weekend! xoxo
