I feel like I haven't done a weekend in Chicago post in so long!! I did these kinds of posts all the time when I first moved to Chicago since I was always out exploring. I figured I would bring it back today to share a little post about my Saturday! I may do a… Continue reading Another Saturday in Chicago
Leaving my house and having a whole weekend to do whatever I want sounds pretty crazy at this point. I have been home pretty much all of the past 2 months. I have done a couple grocery runs, but at this point I have just been getting groceries delivered through Instacart. I have gone on… Continue reading An Ideal Weekend After Quarantine
I came up with the idea to do these weekly posts the other night when I was brainstorming the post I shared before this. I imagine this being a fun, casual, diary-like post that I can share each week. It will be a mix of things I am doing, some of my favorites, how I… Continue reading Ellie Weekly #1
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
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I was home in Chicago for the weekend. Connor and I decided to head to Andersonville on Saturday to explore a bit and get some coffee (that was our main reason for going haha). We got there around 12pm and walked around until about 3pm. We drove there… Continue reading Exploring Andersonville

I was kind of happy we decided to stay home for the weekend since I was SO tired.. more… Continue reading A Relaxing & Productive Weekend
Summer is almost here! It has been feeling like summer a couple days a week in Chicago (lol it is like 80 degrees once a week and the rest of the time it's either raining or freezing). Because of all of this, it's time for my Summer Bucket List!! 1. Ride Divvy Bikes with Connor… Continue reading Summer Bucket List
It's Sunday and I think this is the first blog that I have been "on schedule" for in a LONG time. Per usual, I am writing about Chicago. Who's surprised?! This was the first weekend where Connor and I were actually in Chicago for an entire weekend. It was actually really nice on Friday, but… Continue reading Favorite Spots in Logan Square
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?
