Being home so much and working from home has actually made me like cooking less. I feel like I am always having to make food or clean up from the meal prior. From what I have seen on social media lately, most people are loving cooking and trying out recipes right now. For some reason… Continue reading Work From Home Snacks
I am not starting my weekly post with "happy Tuesday" for the first time in forever. I feel pretty excited about that. I must be getting a little more creative haha. This week I am sharing some things I look forward to each day (and week for some of these things). Tearing off the previous… Continue reading Things I Look Forward To Each Day
One of the things I miss the most during these weird times is going to coffee shops throughout the week and on the weekends. I can make my own coffee at home, and I do, but I absolutely love trying new coffee shops to spice up the week. I love when coffee shops have signature… Continue reading My Favorite Coffee Shops in Chicago

Hello everyone! I feel like most of my recent blog posts have started with something like "it has been so long since I lasted posted" or " I am going to be posting more consistently." It is kind of funny, but I really am going to get more posts up. The schedule was working well… Continue reading Hello!!
Hello Fresh was such a good start to my experiment. As mentioned in a prior post, I embarked on the first part of my experiment: trying out products/services that I hear about on podcasts or see in ads. Hello Fresh seemed like a nice starting point because I wanted to get better at cooking and… Continue reading Experiment Part 1: Hello Fresh Review

Happy Monday! Changing things up this week with a Monday post. Honestly, I was so tired yesterday when we got home from Detroit, so I knew this post would have to wait a day or two. Anyway, Connor and I ventured to Detroit, Michigan on Saturday morning. We got kind of a late start, but… Continue reading Weekend Trip to Detroit
If you're a local to Chicago, you have probably heard of Parlor Pizza. It's a restaurant that serves pizza, drinks, desserts, and yummy cocktails. It isn't my favorite pizza place, but I think it's a really fun place to go! There are actually three of them in Chicago. One in West Loop, one in Wicker… Continue reading The Best Parlor Pizza?
I am back after a week long break!! For some reason, I had so much to say, but couldn't really figure out how to form it into a blog. This past week went by fast, and was fun, but I have been so tired lately, which was probably part of the reason I didn't post.… Continue reading I Was In Bloomington Less Than 24 Hours & This Is What I Ate
