Hey friends! Guess what? Today was the start of a brand new chapter in my life (but more on that later). And to celebrate I decided to visit the brand new Crumbl Cookies here in Chicago. Before I get into this post I wanted to say that I’ve REALLY been into blogging again. Like I actively take my camera with me again and I’ve been coming up with lots of fun blog post ideas. In fact, I already have the next 3 blog posts lined up.
(I was meaning to post another one first but I was just so excited about my cookies I decided to publish this one first. Hehehe).
If you’ve never been to Crumbl Cookies…then you’re missing out!
Happy Friday. Is it just me or is 2021 going by super fast? Like how is it APRIL next week?! (Aka my birthday month woohoo). I mean, I’ll take it I guess. I feel like 2020 was so slow so this fast pace 2021 is actually kinda refreshing. Also, random fact, but as I’m typing this (on March 25th), there’s exactly NINE months until Christmas, YAY!
I’ve blogged about Mitsuwa before (you can check that out here), it’s this really cute Japanese marketplace located right outside of Chicago. I don’t really leave my house to often (hello, we are still in a pandemic folks) but since this is basically a grocery store, I decided to visit last weekend to see what they had and to pick up a few items.
Here’s a few photos from my visit to Mitsuwa Marketplace: Continue reading
Happy December friends. I know I missed Monday’s post but I’ve been busy, busy, busy at work! BUT, I’m so excited because I have so much to look forward to in the next few weeks. This week at work I have back to back meetings daily and then Friday/this weekend I’m heading to DC. Next week I’m going to Disney World. And then I only have one week of work before NINE days off for Christmas. (We get Christmas Eve and Christmas off but I requested the whole week off).
December, I know you just started but I love you already!
Yesterday during my lunch break I decided to walk over to Macy’s and check out this years holiday window displays. (Throwback to last years/the 2018 Macy’s Holiday Windows on State Street in Chicago). And they were SO cute.
It’s no secret I’m a HUGE Disney lover. In fact, I’m heading to Orlando tomorrow (Thursday, the 15th) for my third Disney Cruise. But, there’s something else I love just as much as Disney: Broadway! There’s just something about the theater that just makes my heart happy. Seeing all those talented performers on stage singing, dancing and acting their hearts out, it’s just an incredible thing to witness.
At the moment I have four favorite Broadway shows. I know, I know, “You can’t narrow it down to one?.” No, I can’t. These four Broadway shows have an equal place in my heart. The first one is Wicked, the first show I ever saw on Broadway. (So of course, it’s always going to be meaningful to me). The next show is Dear Evan Hansen. And even though I’ve only seen it once (so far), it left such a huge impression on me. The third is The Book of Mormon, which currently holds the record for the show I’ve seen the most times. I’ve seen it five times so far.
The final Broadway show is Hamilton.
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.
Here’s 12 things to do in Chicago during the holidays:
