Yearly Broadway Recap: First Half of 2022 (January – July)

August 31, 2022

CIBC Theatre Six the Musical Aragon Tour
Hiya everyone! Welcome to a new series here on the blog. This series is dedicated  to one of my favorite things: Broadway. I’ve decided to start doing a little “Broadway recap” sort of thing. This won’t be me necessarily “recapping” the shows I’ve seen, it will more so be me listing the shows I’ve seen. Basically, this is a way to keep track of all of the show’s I’ve seen during the year.  Instead of doing this monthly I’ve decided to break the series into three posts.

The first post (this one) will recap the shows I’ve seen for the first half of the year. (Technically the first half of the year is January – June, but I’m including July in this post too). The second post will recap the shows I’ve seen during the second half of the year. Then the final/third post will be an overview of all of the shows I saw throughout the year and different little highlights about my favorite shows, etc.    

So let’s get started!

Christmas activities to do in Chicago
Happy Friday everyone! I saw Spider-Man: No Way Home last night and let me just say, without spoilers…WOW! Definitely recommend you check it out. You guy, Christmas is next week. NEXT WEEK?! How? When? I swear it was Halloween a few days ago. Is it just me or did 2021 go by super fast. (Way faster than 2020).

As you all know, I love all things Christmas. And what’s more Christmasy than a lights festival?! Last weekend I finally got the chance to visit AMAZE Light Festival. I have been wanting to visit AMAZE for a long so I was happy when it really came to Chicago. (Okay technically Rosemont but you get what I mean!).

Here’s a few photos from AMAZE Light Festival: Continue reading

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn / Halloween at Petco

September 22, 2021

Halloween Costume for dogs Petco Halloween
My LEAST favorite season (fall, winter + spring > summer) is FINALLY over, so you know what that means: It’s officially fall! YAY! If you read my last post, then you already know that I start decorating for fall/Halloween (and holidays in general) super early. In my last post I showed some cute Halloween decor from Micheals. But let’s not forget about our favorite furry friends!

My dog Loki is just as into holidays as me. (I mean I can’t really blame him, look who raised him). So I decided to run to Petco to see what adorable Halloween themed decor, treats, toys and snacks they had to offer.

Here’s the Halloween collection from Petco:

A Visit to Crumbl Cookies – Wicker Park Chicago

Crumbl Cookies Wicker Park Chicago
Hey friends! Guess what? Today was the start of a brand new chapter in my life (but more on that later). And to celebrate I decided to visit the brand new Crumbl Cookies here in Chicago. Before I get into this post I wanted to say that I’ve REALLY been into blogging again. Like I actively take my camera with me again and I’ve been coming up with lots of fun blog post ideas. In fact, I already have the next 3 blog posts lined up. 

(I was meaning to post another one first but I was just so excited about my cookies I decided to publish this one first. Hehehe).

If you’ve never been to Crumbl Cookies…then you’re missing out!

Broswing Mitsuwa Marketplace in Chicago + Kawaii Haul

Japanese market Mitsuwa Marketplace in Chicago Plushies
Happy Friday. Is it just me or is 2021 going by super fast? Like how is it APRIL next week?! (Aka my birthday month woohoo). I mean, I’ll take it I guess. I feel like 2020 was so slow so this fast pace 2021 is actually kinda refreshing. Also, random fact, but as I’m typing this (on March 25th), there’s exactly NINE months until Christmas, YAY!

I’ve blogged about Mitsuwa before (you can check that out here), it’s this really cute Japanese marketplace located right outside of Chicago. I don’t really leave my house to often (hello, we are still in a pandemic folks) but since this is basically a grocery store, I decided to visit last weekend to see what they had and to pick up a few items.

Here’s a few photos from my visit to Mitsuwa Marketplace: Continue reading
