well, it’s the end of another great summer weekend in chicago. adam and i got to spend the weekend with my dad {scott} and brother {kevin}.

the weekend started off on friday night with our one hope united event {read about it here}. after the event i headed back home {adam had to stay at the event a little longer} and met up with my dad and kevin. they had left my hometown {raleigh, nc} earlier that morning and drove all the way to chicago! {yes, i said drove!!} when i got back they had headed out to a local mexican restaurant to grab some dinner {mi tierra} so i went over and hung out with them.

on saturday morning we woke up and went to one of my favorite brunch spots {tre kronor}. since my family is swedish we always try to hit this spot when they come and this weekend was no exception. the food is great and the atmosphere even better. there’s a shop across the street {the sweden shop} that sells all types of scandinavian goods {it sucks me in every time and i can never leave there without buying something}.

after running errands all day we decided that we deserved something really special for dinner. my dad had never been to little goat {read about our last visit here} so we thought this would be the perfect place to go. and we were right – he loved it! of course dinner had to be followed up by sweet mandy b’s. adam was star struck when we walked in and he saw one of the chicago bears players {corey wooten}.

on sunday morning, kevin and i were supposed to do the color in motion 5k, however, it was rainy and cold so we decided coffee and brunch were a better option. for coffee we went to adam’s favorite place, asado. asado is a great chicago coffee company owned by a some really awesome people. if you haven’t been yet, you are missing out!

for brunch we took my dad to southport grocery. southport grocery is very close to adam and i so we go there quite often. when the weather is warm we usually walk over there with gruber {he loves the toast}.

unfortunately, after brunch it was time to say goodbye to my dad. but, fortunately, kevin is up here for good {well, until december}! i can’t wait to spend the summer with my favorite brother {ok, so he’s my only one, but what does that really matter}!

hope you guys had a great weekend! we are off to spain tomorrow and i’ll be updating the blog as i can! see you when we get back!
