Welp, Christmas/the holidays are officially over. Cue the sad music and me crying. Sigh. This is truly my FAVORITE time of year and it always saddens me when it has to come to an end. Part of the reason why I start decorating for Christmas November 1st is because I just love Christmas decor so much. I can’t describe it but it just makes me so happy. If there was a way I could keep up my Christmas tree year round I would.
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
Happy December! Even though I’ve had my decorations up since November 1st, there’s no denying that the holiday season is finally, officially HERE! (I know most people start decorating after Thanksgiving but I’m what you’d call Christmas obsessed). There’s no denying its Christmastime. Aka my favorite time of the year.
I can’t even explain what this time of year does for me. I’m just so HAPPY during the holidays. The holiday lights, holiday films, decor, what’s not to love. With the beginning of December, that means the start of one of my favorite traditions:
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, or if you follow along on IG, than you know I’m a HUGE Broadway lover! Due to the pandemic, I haven’t been to a Broadway show since March 2020. And even though Broadway reopened back in September, I still wasn’t sure if I was comfortable enough to start going to shows again. Sure I love Broadway, but I value my health above everything.
Without getting to controversial or starting up a debate, I will say that I am fully vaccinated (and I’m getting my boaster next week!) and take this pandemic seriously. (My hand sanitizer game is STRONG!).
With that being said, thankfully the Chicago theatre scene is also taking great precautions.
Hi! I can’t believe it’s been TWO MONTHS since my last post… How is that possible? I’ve just been so busy busy busy with work, home renovation, working on special projects, planning trips and of course, getting ready for the holidays! It’s crazy to think that Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas is a little over a month away. I don’t know about you guys but I’m SO excited for Thanksgiving food next week. Turkey. Mac and cheese. Stuffing. SWEET POTATO PIE.
Okay, I need your honest opinion. Which do you prefer pumpkin pie or sweet potato pie? For me it’s not even close. Sweet potato pie is the clear winner. I guess it has to do with the fact that I LOVE sweet potatoes (and just potatoes in general) and I’m not a big fan of pumpkin. In fact, the first time I ever tasted a pumpkin flavored dessert that I actually enjoyed was a few years ago at Disneyland. I got a Mickey shaped pumpkin cupcake. But it tasted more like carrot cake than anything.
