Pimm's Cups and Cucumber Sandwiches

Some photos from an evening spent outside watching the sunset from a Chicago rooftop, complete with Pimm's Cup cocktails, cucumber sandwiches, and a stunning view of the skyline.

To make the Pimm's Cup: 1 1/2 oz Pimms, 1/2 oz gin, stir, top with ginger beer, garnish with a cucumber.
For the cucumber sandwiches: mix a variety of herbs with cream cheese (we used oregano, chives, basil, and parsley).  Layer the cream cheese and thinly sliced cucumber between slices of white bread.


Randolph Street Market

This weekend I visited the Randolph Street Market, a weekend event that hosts tons of vintage, antique, jewelry, art, and clothing vendors.  There was so much eye candy! I managed to leave with a few beautiful old vases that will perfectly suit the last of summer gladiolas.  Check out the scene... 


Lollapalooza 2013

We had an awesome weekend at Lollapalooza - 23 performances, 1 great trip. Ryan and I had a great trip visiting S & P & Theresa.  Our favorite shows include Family of the Year, St. Lucia, Local Natives, The Lumineers, The Killers, Atlas Genius, Tegan & Sarah, Two Door Cinema Club, Vampire Weekend, and Phoenix.  And of course, it's always the best to visit family in Chicago.  And we got a gif made!  One of our best Lolla's yet :)
