Weekend Recap | spring, donuts + bikes

Happy April! I just hugged goodbye this weekend's company and have a short hour to recap the past two weeks. This month is full of hosting + celebration with friends. Sadly, that means typing out posts gets put on the back burner. Here's a short + sweet recap of last weekend with my Twin City girlies.

Saturday the skies were the bluest + friends were the sweetest.  
Instead of road tripping to St. Paul for our usual springtime meet-up. Victoria + Meghan spent the weekend in my part of the Midwest. Whoop whoop! 
We started Saturday morning as the locals do by walking to the nearest coffee shop for caffeine, cake donuts + catching-up.
Since the weather was in our favor, we ditched a pricey Uber to downtown and did a half bike, half walk from Lakeview to the Navy Pier. Such a fantastic idea! We got to see the neighborhood at our pace and had no trouble with traffic.
This April 1st weather was flawless. Even the wind went unnoticed along the Lakefront. Our morning totaled in walking 6.5 miles!
The pier has seriously stepped it up. The Ferris wheel is new + improved with the very best views of the city. We also enjoyed some Garretts popcorn + relived our childhood on a seesaw exhibit before leaving the pier.
We had lunch up in Lakeview at Left Coast. Left Coast has the most delicious healthy food. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. 
Emily joined us late Saturday for a sushi night (her first!), and before going to church on Sunday we did what I love most- donuts + coffee from Stan's Donuts!
