It’s June, which means Father’s Day is right around the corner. Whether it’s your brother, friend or your own father, let’s toast to the #ULTRADAD who inspires us to live full lives and make better choices. 

Although I was raised by a single mom, I had two amazing father figures in my life: my granddad (who is sadly no longer with us) and my uncle. Growing up, we would always barbecue to celebrate Father’s Day. I have so many vivid memories of waiting by the grill while my grandad flipped the burgers and hotdogs.

My granddad would always let me help make the potato salad for the Father’s Day BBQ. He said I was the only one he trusted with the “special ingredient.” (Even though everyone in the family knew it!).

In fact, to this day, whenever I barbecue I always think back to those moments with my granddad!

What’s in My Disney Parks Bag: Disney World Must Haves

May 21, 2018

Disney World Must Haves
As most of you know, even though I live in Chicago, I travel to Disney quite often. In fact, ever since I became an annual pass holder back in 2015, I’ve visited Disneyland and Disney World at least seven times a year. I’ve also been to Disneyland Paris twice and am heading on my second Disney Cruise this August! (To me there’s no such thing as too much Disney!). 

Since I frequent the Disney Parks so often, I’ve become sort a Disney expert. (Especially when it comes to things like packing, best times to visit, how to save money, etc!). Over the years I’ve definitely learned the do’s and don’t of what to bring to Disney. 

Here’s what’s in my Disney Parks Bag:

Five Tips For Maintaining A Healthier Lifestyle

Five Tips For Maintaining A Healthier Lifestyle
Happy Monday! As some of you may already know, for the past few years I’ve been on a mission to live a healthier lifestyle. I decreased my fast food intake, I starting doing yoga (yoga is the BEST), I joined a gym and I’ve been finding lots of fun new ways to stay active. When it comes to staying active, I think I’ve finally found a routine that works best with my busy schedule.

For now, my workout routine consists of daily (or every other day) jogging (or biking now that the weather is so nice), weekly yoga classes and weekend visits to the gym! If I’ve learned anything over these past few years it’s that getting healthy starts with YOU. If you want to change, than YOU have to make an effort! Sure it’s not always easy, but trust me, it’s worth it!

Here are my five simple tips for maintaining a healthier lifestyle:

Everyday Progress: Managing Your Blood Sugar

My mother is truly my best friend and my favorite person in the world. We do everything together. We travel together (she’s my favorite Disney buddy), we shop together, we hang out together. We’re truly two peas in a pod. As my mom is getting older, nothing concerns me more than her health.

You see, my mom has been experiencing blood sugar spikes for a while now. I love my mom dearly but even I can admit that she’s not the best when it comes to blood sugar management. Well, at least she used to not be. Now Lilo (my mom) is slowly but surely taking the right steps in managing her blood sugar spikes and sugar cravings.

Here’s some of the steps she’s taking:

Relaxing With Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold

Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold
You know what one of my favorite things about working remotely is? Getting to work from ANYWHERE? Although most days I do work from my home office, sometimes I like to spice things up a little. On Tuesdays I love working from the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (since admission is free for Illinois residents on Tuesdays). It’s so much fun typing away while being surrounded by amazing artwork.

Another great thing about my job, and being able to work from anywhere, is the fact that I can still work while I’m traveling. This is what allows me to travel so much (and take all those bi-monthly Disney trips!). In fact, next week I’ll be working from New York City (since I’m heading there on Thursday to celebrate my 26th birthday, which is the following Tuesday April 17th, with friends).

Yup, all I need is good Wi-Fi (thank goodness I have my own portable WiFi router, that things is a life saver) and my trusty computer and the world is my office! A few days ago I decided to enjoy the semi-decent spring weather by grabbing my laptop, a cold Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold and making my backyard my “office” for the day! Continue reading
