Hi everyone! This is Adrian. My wife asked me to write something about last weekend. Maybe many of you don't know that I work most weekends, but once every five or six weeks, I am able to take the weekend off. So it's kind of a big deal for us and we have to plan what we're going to do to make most the most of it.
This last weekend was different because one of my coworkers asked me to switch weekends. So even though we had planned for this coming weekend, I changed it to help him out. But that worked out really well since last weekend was the Chicago Blues Festival.
Let's backtrack. We started our weekend Friday evening by going to my brother's house. We hung out with him and his family Friday night and stayed over. That night I had the opportunity to try Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Mmmmm doughnuts. The best ever.
Saturday morning, I woke up and I started making breakfast with my nephew. We made stuffed french toast, potatoes, eggs, and bacon, which was awesome.
Later that day, my brother and I put together a bicycle that he had bought for my youngest nephew Lalo.
As soon as we finished putting the bike together, Lalo was so excited to jump on it and start riding. My brother had to teach him how to get on the bike. And let me tell you something, Lalo is a fast learner!
Saturday afternoon, we said bye to my brother and invited his oldest son to hang out with us in the city. We grabbed dinner at Panera and we went to Grant Park to enjoy the Blues Festival.
I love Blues so it was awesome to relax in the grass and listen to some good blues music.
The next morning, we slept in a bit then we got up, made some coffee and walked to the bakery down the street to get some conchas.
We had breakfast, got ready and headed out to the Vintage Bazaar on the north side of the city. It was awesome. They had food trucks, drink booths and lots of vintage treasures. We bought some goodies for the apartment and we tried Korean tacos. It was kind of strange, but good.
(Emily note: I will have an upcoming post sharing our purchases!!)
(Adrian note: Em, I'm blogging, not you!)
Since my nephew was with us, we took him to one of my favorite places in Chicago, Skylark bar, where you can have the best tater tots in the world and the second best burgers in the world. Sorry Skylark, but the best burgers are in Mexico.
Even though I went back to work on Monday, our "weekend" continued Monday evening with a boat ride through the rivers downtown with some good friends, guacamole, sangria and a beautiful night.
So people, I have spoken. I hope you didn't get bored reading my blog but I just had to share that I had a great unplanned weekend with my wife and family! Hasta luego, peeps!
Thanks to that one guy, Adrian, for doing the hard work for me. He would also like you all to know that he took the picture of the conchas.
What do you think? Should we let him share more around here??
