Buy Buy Baby

While on one of our many visits into Chicago, I took T to this cozy pizza restaurant that I went to while back in high school. I believe the only time I've been was after my high school prom and I remember the pizza being very unique and delicious. The restaurant is in the Lincoln Park neighborhood with $8.00 valet but we managed to snag a spot close to the restaurant- score!
We started off with a Mediterranean thin naan style bread covered in different spices- it was salty and delicious!
Here's our giant salad we split- I swear I could only eat a couple bites of each appetizer because I wanted to save room for the main event.
The pizza pot pie had all my favorite ingredients: meat sauce, mushrooms, and a thick layer of mozzerella cheese- yuum!!!

Some more eats:
We stopped by Yu's Chinese restaurant on our way back from Chicago on Wednesday (T had ANOTHER  interview) and I ordered the always amazing and tasty seafood noodles.
After lunch, we stopped by Buy Buy Baby in Schaumburg and managed to snag most of our nursery furniture and bedding. The furniture looks so much better in person but here's a small sneak peak. I can't wait to put all our cute bedding in it!! We also found Buy Buy Baby to be a much better shopping experience than Babies R Us so we're nixing Babies and going with Buy Buy for all our baby purchases. Not only can you use as many 20% coupons you can find (Bed, Bath & Beyond, text coupons, AND in store coupons), the customer service is top notch; the sales rep really know their stuff and are eager to help you find everything you need and you practically don't have to ask because they'll come up to you!!

Who knew a squirrel could be so fascinating for all!! 
patiently waiting while T negotiates our furniture package
On Friday, we spent the morning @ The Room Place and bought most of our furniture for our new apartment- couches, coffee table, kitchen table, bedroom set, entertainment stand, and lamps. I didn't take a picture of all the stuff we got but I was really pleased with everything, especially our marble kitchen table!!
this color?
After we had finished furniture shopping, we went to the Hyundai dealership to check out some SUV's and test drove the Sante Fe, Veracruz, and the Kia Sorento.  I liked the leg room of the Veracruz but since it was a bigger model, it didn't drive as smoothly as the Sante Fe or Sorento. Ultimately, the Sorento won out because of the three seat row option and what I thought was better handling.
or that color?

Coldstone Creamery for dessert

we're one step closer to buying a car..
