Three Tasty Snacks To Make On Game Day

January 8, 2018

This post is sponsored by Tyson Foods, Inc, but the content and opinions are my own.Calling all sports fans! Can you believe we’re just weeks away from the Big Game? While I’m a HUGE fan of hosting get togethers, there’s always one thing that makes me a little uneasy: planning the menu! I know a lot of people go all out with fancy recipes for their Game Day parties but since I’m more of a novice, I like to go for the more simple recipes!

Here are my three favorite simple snacks to make for game day: Continue reading

Five Fun (and Inexpensive) Holiday Party Ideas

December 12, 2017

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. No, seriously, Christmas is JUST around the corner, and that can only mean one thing: It’s holiday party time. I love holiday parties! (Any excuse to get together with my friends is A-Ok in my book). Since I normally spend Christmas (and New Years) at Disney World each year (and since my friends and I all have such busy schedules), I always try to make sure to get together with my friends as much as possible before I leave.

I’m a sucker for a good themed party, and the holidays are no exception. With Christmas shopping, travel plans and regular day to day expenses, I get that things can be financially tight around the holidays, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have a good time with your friends!

Here are five fun (and inexpensive) holiday party ideas:

A Road Trip Through The Midwest With The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

December 6, 2017

Subaru Crosstrek
It’s no secret that I love to travel. In fact, I’m currently visiting New York City (after spending a weekend in DC). Then in three weeks I’m heading to Orlando to spend the holidays at Disney World and then I’m off on my first Disney Cruise January 2 (talk about a great way to kick off 2018!). The point is, I love traveling. Nothing makes me happier than getting out and exploring new places.

Speaking of exploring new places, although I’ve lived in Chicago my whole life (not counting the four years I lived on the East Coast for college) there are so any places in the Midwest I’ve yet to explore. Since Chicago is within driving distance to so many cool cities, I decided to spend the week of Thanksgiving taking a road trip throughout the Midwest.

Of course no road trip is complete without the perfect vehicle!

Three Reasons Why Tucson Should Be On Your Travel Bucket List

Although I’ve always loved to travel, I’ve really taken my travel game to a whole new level these past three years. No really, it seems like I’m ALWAYS traveling (in fact, I’m heading to Florida/Disney World in two days!). Some of my friends jokingly say that I live at the airport now. Even though I’ve traveled to a lot of amazing places in my life (my favorites being Paris, the Bahamas, Amsterdam, Los Angeles and Miami), I’m constantly adding new places to my travel bucket list.

Over the past few months I’ve spent a lot of time planning out my next big international trips (Canada and Asia) so I decided to take a step back from that and start looking into a few fun domestic destinations I can visit. Since I always have such a blast on the west coast, I decided to look into visiting Arizona and was pleasantly surprised when I discovered how awesome Tucson is!

Here are three reasons why Tucson is on my travel bucket list (and why it should be on yours too!):
