thai food anybody? yes, thai indeed!!

i suffered another craving...again.

one of my favorite places to eat in chicago was silver spoon, a delish thai-restaurant downtown just off of rush street. lately, i've been craving me-self some pad thai. i mentioned this to my parents at the dinner table one day, and dad recommended checking out thai-indeed, which apparently is a popular thai place here in town. it was perfect since ryan was taking me out to dinner for my birthday over the weekend so i needed to find a place for us to celebrate!

and once again, craving satisfied. told you, i love food.

then after thai-indeed, of course we needed some dessert so ryan took me to one of my favorite southern dessert places. SONIC! i'm seriously obsessed with this place - probably because we never had one close to us in chicago. you would think that with all of the places that we had to eat at chicago, sonic would not be on my list...but oh, baby it is! i always order the medium strawberry limeade with extra strawberries. if i'm hungry, i order a side of cheesticks and when i have an icecream craving, i love the oreo blasts. oh, so good.

we brought our sonic treats back to my house. ryan even brought back treats for mom, dad and ashley - isn't he great?! but they weren't the ones to come running to the door, ready for some icecream. oh, peyton, we love this dog like crazy. he is so stinkin' adorable and such a good boy! lovelovelove him.

(and yes, he is named after peyton manning, the football player. he is ashley's dog and when she first got peyton for christmas, she was obsessed with peyton manning the fb-played. good thing she didn't get peyton this christmas...or else, he probably would be named justin bieber. greeaaaaat.)

see? how can you resist these puppy dog eyes?
oh, so presh. we heart him like crazy.

btw, i'm feeling so much better! thanks for all the get-well wishes sent. i got some good rest today, crashed on the couch mostly and took cat naps and caught up on tv shows and blogs, but i think the rest helped out a ton 'cause im not coughing as much and i was able to finish up a huge shop order that needs to go out before the weekend. i still have a little bit of a cold left but its def. not as bad as last night. ick. i'm just happy to have some energy back for the weekend! i'm looking forward to...

georgia. pumpkin patches. road trip (a short 5 hr. one). starbucks. new Taylor Swift song. columbus day sales. sewing. brand new issue of Instyle. hanging out with the Butlers. pumpkin spice latte. spending time with Ryan.

what are you looking forward to this weekend, friend?
