Walt Disney Studios Park
Happy Friday! Sorry for the radio silence here on the blog these past few days, it’s been a bit of a crazy week! On the bright side, I was able to score HAMILTON tickets earlier this week (woot woot!). In case you didn’t know, I’m a HUGE Broadway lover! In fact, in 2015 one of my resoultions was to see at least one Broadway show a month and I’m pleased to say that in 2015 I saw 13 Broadway shows! Hamilton is coming to Chicago in September (I was able to get tickets for an October show) and I couldn’t be more excited to cross it off my broadway bucket list! Speaking of bucket lists, back in April I got to finally cross visiting Disneyland Paris off my Disney bucket list. Disneyland Paris was AMAZING but Walt Disney Studios Park definitely had a charm to it as well. The Walt Disney Studios Park is the second of the two theme parks at Disneyland Paris. Walt Disney Studios Park is dedicated to all things show business, movies, production, and behind-the-scenes! So essentially, Walt Disney Studios Park is like the Hollywood Studios or Disney California Adventure of Disneyland Paris Continue reading

Celebrating Summer with a Pup-Peroni Picnic

Fun summer activities for dogs
It’s officially the first day of summer, can you believe it? To celebrate, I decided to go on a little “summer’s finally here” picnic with Loki. It’s funny because even though this is technically my second summer with Loki (I adopted him last May), it’s actually the first summer where we get to go on little adventures and do fun activities together (like impromptu picnics!). Since Loki was only a puppy last summer, I didn’t want to overwhelm him with too many new activities until he became completely conformable with his new home and family. Last summer Loki was enrolled in Puppy Academy (yes, the eight week training/obedience class was called puppy academy, how cute is that?) so he spent a majority of the summer learning new tricks and skills (and meeting lots of new puppy friends). This year, I really want Loki to experience all the fun and adventure summer brings and nothing says “summer fun” more than a Pup-Peroni picnic! Continue reading

What I'm Looking Forward To This Summer

What I’m Looking Forward To This Summer (2016)

June 17, 2016

Summer 2016
Happy Friday and welcome back to another installment of my “What I’m Looking Forward To” series! I absolutely LOVE this series and I can’t believe that this is already the seventh (say what?!) installment of it. If you haven’t already noticed, I LOVE making bucket listsdocumenting happy moments and writing posts like this and since I’ve had such a positive response from you all on this series, hopefully that means you guys like reading these kinds of posts as much as I like writing them! Fun fact: it was one year ago TODAY (with my What I’m Looking Forward To This Summer (2015) post), that I decided to start this “What I’m Looking Forward To” series here on the blog. It’s crazy to think how fast time has flown by. Although I’m not the biggest summer fan (it’s actually my least favorite season), I’m actually really excited for summer to start next week. For me, summer means traveling, BBQ’s, swimming, spending countless nights at the beach, S’mores, music festivals, hanging out with friends and family and everything in between! Here are a few of the things I’m looking forward to this summer: Continue reading

Blind Box & Bag Roundup 30. (Disney LEGO Minifigures)

June 14, 2016

Disney LEGO Minifigures
Happy Tuesday and welcome to another edition of Blind Box & Bag Roundup (I can’t believe this is my 30th BB&BR post?!!) This week’s BB&BR post is dedicated to the adorable new Disney LEGO Minifigures. If you checked out my May Must Have post, than you already know that I’ve been on the lookout for these Disney LEGO Minifigures for a while now. For MONTHS (okay, only one month) I searched high and low for these Disney LEGO Minifigures and I always came up empty. I searched in several Target’s and two different LEGO Stores here in Chicago. I even checked the LEGO store in Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney) when I visited Disney World last month for the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival and I still didn’t have any luck finding them. Apparently, the LEGO store in Disney Springs is only allowed to sell a certain amount of Disney LEGO Minifigures a day and by the time I went, they had already sold out. To my surprise though, I was able to find a few Disney LEGO Minifigures blind bags at Five Below (they were located at the checkout counter and I didn’t even notice them until I was leaving the store) a few days ago so I decided to pick up four bags!  Continue reading

Natural Balance Dog Food
As some of you may already know, for the past year and a half I’ve been on a mission to live a healthier lifestyle. I decreased my fast food intake, I starting doing yoga and I even joined a gym. I also go on daily jogs (and sometimes bike rides) with my dog Loki. Speaking of Loki, I’ve also been on a mission this past year to make sure he’s living a healthy lifestyle as well! Let’s face it, all good dog owners want to keep their dogs healthy. We love our dogs, and we want them to be as healthy and happy as possible. Just like it’s important that we have healthy diets and stay active, the same goes for our furry friends! I’m not going to lie, when I first adopted Loki from PAWS Chicago (aka Chicago’s largest No Kill humane and adoption organization) last May, I was a little nervous. I’d never had a dog before and I wanted to make sure I did everything in my power to give him the best life possible and that meant making sure he was happy, healthy and well loved! Continue reading
