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.
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
Once Halloween is over, it’s OFFICIALLY Christmastime in my book. So, happy holidays everyone! But really, I’m so excited because this is my absolute favorite time of year. I love every single thing about the holidays. I love all of the Christmas movies, the decorations and everything in between. Speaking of Christmas decorations, Michaels Christmas decorations are so adorable this year (and every year really!).
Last weekend I hit up Michaels and I was pleasantly surprised at all of the cute holiday decor they had available. Just seeing all of the adorable decor put me in the holiday spirit. (So much so, that I went home and watched The Muppet Christmas Carol. Yup, I’m that person!).
Here is Michaels Christmas Collection for 2019: Continue reading
Last weekend I spent the day (well, like 10 hours) in Philadelphia. I was excited because I hadn’t been to Philly since 2015 and it was technically my first time visiting the city during the holidays. (I say technically because one winter break while I was in college my flight back home to Chicago got delayed and then cancelled and I had to spend the night at the airport in Philly. That sure was a great way to start the holidays…).
Even though I wasn’t in Philly for long, I still got to do so many fun things. I went to Philly with a clear plan: to do as many “Christmasy” things as possible! I legit typed “things to do in Philadelphia during Christmastime” into Google and boom! instant itinerary. I didn’t get to do everything on my list but I still had a great time because the main focus of the trip was catching up with two of my best friends!
Here’s a little recap of my day in Philadelphia:
Christmas time is here. Happiness and cheer! Ah, it really is my favorite time of year. Downtown is dressed up in lights. The holiday train is making its daily runs. Santa’s helpers (because the REAL Santa is at the North Pole prepping for the big day) are roaming the malls. Christmastime is truly here! It’s no secret that I LOVE Chicago and that I LOVE Christmas. So of course I love Chicago during Christmastime! There’s no shortage of fun and festive things to do in the city during the holiday season.
