Yes it’s November and yes I’m already done Christmas shopping. Well, 95% done. I’m picking up one or two more things on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Needless to say, Christmastime is among us. (At least for me it is and has been since November 1st).
It’s no secret I LOVE Christmas (and every holiday). And I have so many fun Christmasy things to do this weekend. Today, after I see Frozen II of course, I’m going to a Christmas themed pop up bar here in Chicago. And tomorrow is the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival! I LOVE the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival. Attending the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival is one of my favorite holiday traditions. Speaking of holiday traditions, it’s that time of year again:
Time to share my new wrapping paper haul!
Happy Hump Day. I feel like this week has been going by so slow. Like shouldn’t it be Friday already? I think it’s because next week is Thanksgiving and I only have a three day work week and a four day weekend. So time is going by super slow because I’m so excited for it to be next week.
I know what you’re thinking “It’s Wednesday, you don’t post on Wednesdays?”. You are correct! For the past month or so I’ve been posting on Monday and Friday. But as some of you may have already noticed, there was no post on Monday.
I decided to organize my bedroom drawers on a whim the other day. And by organize my bedroom drawers I mean clean out my junk drawer. Does anyone else have a designated “junk drawer?”. You know, that one drawer full of random expired coupons, maybe some lotions, postcards, old batteries and other random things?
(I know we all have one of those drawers in our kitchens! It’s were you keep takeout menus and extra fast food sauces).
Well, while I was cleaning out my dresser junk drawer, I found some unopened LEGO Disney Minifigures Series 2 blind bags.
Hooray for finding lost treasures! Continue reading
Move over pumpkin spice, it’s peppermint time! Nothing gets me in the holiday spirit quite like peppermint flavored treats.
Happy Monday everyone. First and foremost I want to say Happy Veterans Day to all those brave women and men who have fought for our country. My mom was in the Navy so I want to say a special Happy Veterans day to her. Now onto today’s post.
You know how everyone (*cough not me though cough*) loves pumpkin spice? Well, the way everyone gets hype when pumpkin spice flavored stuff starts to hit the shelves, that’s exactly how I feel about peppermint. I love all things peppermint! Peppermint scented candles, peppermint ice cream, heck, peppermint soap!
Last weekend at Target, I got a ton of yummy peppermint flavored treats that I can’t wait to eat! Continue reading
Traveling has honestly become one of my favorite things to do. And as I’ve gotten older, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to be able to travel more. (And luckily, I have a job that allows me the freedom to travel often). I’ve loved posting travel guides lately and thought it would be fun to share another one today.
(Be sure to check out my Philadelphia travel guide and St. Louis travel guide).
I recently took a quick trip to New York City. Although I’ve visited NYC dozens of times, this was one of my shortest trips. I only had 48 hours to really explore NYC. Two days might sound short, but I’m here to tell you that there’s TONS to explore in New York City in a short amount of time.
Here’s what to see, do and eat in New York City:
