Alright guys, I’ve got part two of my Chicago food guide for you and this one may be more exciting than the healthy eats one. 🙂 There are so many delicious places to eat in this city and I know that I’ve left some things off this list, but these are my my favorites. Neil and I aren’t big on sit-down restaurants, so you won’t really find those on this list. I also need to eat more tacos since that’s a big thing here, yet I don’t have any on the list. So if you don’t see a genre on… View Post

Ok, this post is long overdue and apologies for that. It felt like whenever I sat down to write it, it was a daunting monstrosity that was easier to postpone than bang out. Then I decided to split it into two posts, and suddenly it became much more manageable. Since I’ve been getting more emails asking for food recommendations, I figured it would be better to have one (or two) posts to direct people to than typing the same things out over and over. SO HERE WE ARE. This is by no means an exhaustive list and I’m sure that… View Post

I have a running list of goals that I want to achieve. I’m not great about the when particularly, but they’re there and I make sure to check that list pretty frequently to see how I’m coming along.

You guys. This weekend was the BEST. I’ve talked about it before, but the blogging and social media communities are amazing. You’re able to find people with similar interests and almost pre-screen them before even meeting. After commenting and getting to know people online, it feels like you’ve known each other forever when you actually meet in person. My friends Ashley and Jess came to visit me for a long 4-day weekend. I had met and spent time with both of them before, but this was a legit girls weekend. We weren’t together for an event or a conference, just… View Post

Hey guys! Welcome to Monday! This weekend was actually busier than normal even if I don’t have all the pictures to prove it. 🙂 I did end up going to work out on Saturday with some friends and as you can see by my beet red face, it was totally worth it. We’ve all been meeting at Big City Crossfit on Saturdays when we can and I think my friends have suckered me into signing up for a 4-week challenge in the month of February. I’ll update you once I have all the details, but for a couple weeks it… View Post
