This is Halloween | Halloween Decor at HomeGoods

September 19, 2022

Halloween Decor at HomeGoodsYou guys?! Do you know what Thursday is? FALL! That’s right, this week is officially fall. FINALLY! Which also means my LEAST favorite time of the year, summer, is finally behind us. YAY! Although, I’ll be in California later this week where there’s a heat wave and it’s 95 degrees so I guess I won’t be escaping the summer weather just yet. BUT, here in Chicago the weather has been so beautiful!

And since it’s (almost) fall, that’s means I can finally start decorating for Halloween!! I am not going to lie to you guys…I took these photos back in late Julyish(?) but have waited to post them. I know a lot of people don’t start decorating for fall/Halloween until late September/October but not me! As most of you may know I LOVE holidays so I try to extend them for as long as possible. I like to get almost 2 months worth of the holiday. So for Halloween I start decorating on September 1. That way my decor is up from September – October 31.

And for Christmas I start decorating on November 1 so I get a little under two months of having that decor up. I know that’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it works for me. The longer I get to have my holiday decor up, the happier my mood is! And speaking of holiday decor…

Here’s a look at this years Halloween Decor at HomeGoods! Continue reading

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!

Special Delivery From Hong Kong Disneyland | Monthly Pin Update

August 15, 2022

Hong Kong Disneyland Cheshire Cat Cake pin Happy Monday friends! How’s everyone doing? Me? I’ve been doing great. If you read my last blog post than you already know how much I LOVE Westworld. And if you’re a Westworld fan than you know last night was the fourth season finale. Y’all….THAT FINALE?!!! UM…..I have no words. I hate that every season of Westworld comes out 2 years after the previous season. You’re telling me I’m going to have to wait until 2024 for more?!!! Sigh.

I can’t believe this is already my THIRD Monthly Pin Update post. I’m so glad I finally starting talking about + featuring my Disney pin collection here on the blog. It’s been such a huge part of my life since the 90s honestly. (I bought my first Disney pin back in 1998 when my family when to Disney World for the opening for Disney’s Animal Kingdom). 

Here’s the Disney Pins I added to my collection in July:

My Top 10 Posts (According To Pinterest)

July 27, 2022


Hey y’all! Happy Wednesday. You didn’t think I was going to forget to post in July now did you? I told you guys my goal was to post at least once a month and that’s exactly what I intend to do. I originally had another post planned for this month but then I was randomly checking Pinterest and thought this would be a fun type of post to do. I feel like bloggers, or content creators in general, don’t talk about the benefits of Pinterest enough.

Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Tiktok are great ways to boast your online presence but let’s NOT sleep on Pinterest! Pinterest is a great, and EASY, way to get more traffic to your blog!

(This has absolutely nothing to do with this post but I just caught up on this season of Westworld and BOY is this season excellent! It is easily one of the best shows on TV right now. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming).

Here’s my top 10 Pinterest posts for this month (June-July): Continue reading

Happy Friday everyone! It’s officially summer…which also means it’s offically my least favorite time of the year. Yay for me.

Here’s my pin update for May 2022: Continue reading
