Breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien | A Weekend In Philadelphia

June 19, 2019

Breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien Happy Wednesday! While I was visiting Philadelphia last weekend, I finally got the opportunity to try Le Pain Quotidien! I had been wanting to try this eatery for a while now. There’s a few locations here in Chicago (in fact, there’s one right next to my job downtown) but for some reason I just never had the time to fully check it out. But boy am I glad I finally did because the food was delicious!

Le Pain Quotidien is an international chain of bakery-restaurants. They sell lots of yummy baked goods as well as offer a full dine-in food menu. Although I dined at Le Pain Quotidien for breakfast, lunch and dinner is available there as well. Can I just say that I’m not a “food blogger” and in no way claim to be. BUT recently, I’ve really gotten into food photography. Is it weird that I find food to be “cute”?! Is that normal?!

Either way, Le Pain Quotidien has officially become one of my new breakfast go-to spots!

After Dinner Playtime…With a Twist

June 17, 2019

This post is sponsored by JW Twist-In Treats but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.JW Twist-In TreatsCan you believe that summer officially begins THIS WEEK?! I don’t know why but for some reason it still feels like spring to me. Well..okay, technically it IS still spring. What I meant was it still feels like late April/early May to me. Crazy to think that we’re already almost halfway done with June. And that we’re halfway done with 2019?! 

Regardless of whether or not it’s spring or summer, the weather here in Chicago has been AMAZING lately. Every day the weather has been in the high 60’s, 70’s and sometimes 80’s! Perfect weather if I do say so myself. Not only have I been enjoying this gorgeous weather, Loki has too!

Loki loves being able to get some good ole fresh air after dinnertime.

It’s his favorite way to relax on these warm spring (almost summer) nights. The sun has set for the most part, there’s a nice breeze and his favorite new toy is ready to be played with!

Breakfast at Tusker House Restaurant | Walt Disney World

June 13, 2019

Breakfast at Tusker House Restaurant in Animal Kingdom
Since becoming an Annual Passholder in 2015, I’d say I’ve visited the Disney Parks, at minimum, at least five or six times a year. People often ask me “How is it that you don’t get tired/sick of Disney?.” The truth is, there’s ALWAYS something new to discover or experience at Disney. No Disney trip is like the last. For me, something that I always try to do is dine at a new restaurant during each trip.

(Of course I always make room for my staples like Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ and Be Our Guest but I also try to squeeze in a new dining experience as well!).

During my last two Disney trips I dined at a TON of new restaurants so I wanted to share the reviews with you all. It’s been a hot minute since my last Disney Restaurant Review so I’m excited to finally add on to that series.

Today’s post is all about Breakfast at Tusker House Restaurant in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

Exploring The Philadelphia Museum of Art

June 7, 2019

Philadelphia Museum of ArtFunny story…remember when I shared THIS post back in December about visiting Philadelphia during the holidays? In that post I said that I would be doing a separate post all about my trip to The Philadelphia Museum of Art. Well, it looks like I never did it (insert shocked emoji face). I honestly didn’t even realize it until I was deleting photos from my camera last weekend and went “Did I ever even share these photos on the blog?”. Yikes.

Since I’m heading to Philly next weekend, I thought I might as well (finally) share more about my visit to The Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Just a little preface, neither of the two exhibitions I’m going to be highlighting are still ongoing. They both closed back in March. BUT they were both amazing and definitely still worth sharing! The two exhibitions I’m going to talking about today are the Fabulous Fashion: From Dior’s New Look to Now and Little Ladies: Victorian Fashion Dolls and the Feminine Ideal exhibits.

Now onto the post!
