I love Chicago for plenty of reasons -- weather isn't one of them.
This weekend passed far too quickly, per usual. With dinner parties Friday and Saturday night, and great brunches on Saturday and Sunday morning, the weekend revolved largely around food, family, and friends.
I introduced J to a small fragment of my big, loud, and (often) obnoxious Italian family on Saturday night. He fit right in (despite not being obnoxious himself) and seemed to particularly enjoy my cousin's impersonations of the family's patriarchs. I even learned something new about one of my uncles' and dad's favorite Italian curses, di cornuto, which means a man's wife is screwing around on him (and he knows it!). Apparently this is a very effective Sicilian insult -- feel free to borrow it if you're so inclined.
We also made a quick stop at the Shedd Aquarium this weekend to do some Chicago exploration. Unfortunately the magnitude of children there led to our rapid exit, but it was nothing a bloody mary afterwards couldn't fix.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
