Found these beauties while strolling through Mariano’s yesterday. I know it sounds a bit cliche, but I heart flowers. I love the colors they add to a room. I can’t help but smile when I see flowers. (The irony of this is, I’m not a huge fan of roses. They just seem a bit too… Continue reading Sunflowers

You can click here to see if you can score tix to tonight or tomorrow’s performances. Are you into musicals? (Raises hand: I am!) What’s your favorite?… Continue reading West Side Story
Only Chicagoans will get this….but I was happy to find gas for $4.24. I had to go to the suburbs to find it, but so much better than the $4.70 in the city.
I stopped by Mitsuwa today, the Japanese market, and saw these and thought, “Hey, why not?” I actually got a 2nd pair, hmm, to motivate the boyfriend to try it or ask my mom? I’ll update this later with a review. Have you tried a foot mask before? Tell me about it if you have.
As part of the boyfriend’s birthday weekend festivities, I took him to Da Lobsta in the Gold Coast. I got a great deal via Groupon. It was no Luke’s Lobster nor GT Fish and Oyster, but it’s closer and more affordable. They have a handful or so of different variations, but I’m true to traditional rolls.… Continue reading Da Lobsta

I was checking the stats earlier and wahoo, 500 views! So to whoever you are behind the screen that reads my… Continue reading Thank you!
Updated 6/11/13 Monday night was absolutely stunning and the perfect backdrop for a night of music at Millennium Park. Glen Hansard was amazing and I can’t wait until he’s back in Chicago. I had forgotten how popular outdoor events are in Chicago, especially when they are FREE. I mistakenly thought it was ok to leave the… Continue reading Glen Hansard and The Frames @ Millennium Park
“Metro Bank, We Will Not Be Evicted.” Strolling through Pilsen a few Saturdays ago, the boyfriend and I stumbled upon this building. We were on 18th between Morgan and Ashland. It appears that the building is for sale and the tenants are being evicted. I wonder what came of this, if anything.
The boyfriend turns 35 today! Funny story: I told my nephew two weeks ago that the boyfriend’s birthday was coming up. He then proceeded to ask his parents if he could go to his birthday party. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that there wouldn’t be a big party with kids. This morning… Continue reading Happy birthday boyfriend!
I wanted something not in our usual line up of let’s grab a quick dinner, so we decided to go to Bite Cafe on Western. Great choice and I’m going to make it part of our regular dinners out. I got something out of the norm and went with the Braised Short Rib Stroganoff and… Continue reading Bite Cafe
