Happy Friday! This week has been a little slow, but I’m not complaining! Still enjoying the fall weather before temperatures start to drop for our beloved Chicago winter. We have another slow weekend coming up, which hopefully means more apple cider and city exploring. Check out what I’ve been loving this week and let me know some of your faves in the comments! 1. Pumpkin Pie Croissant Donut Apologies to those of you who aren’t in Chicago, but one of our local donut shops, Stan’s, just released this pumpkin pie croissant donut, dubbed “Le Stan.” Their original was intriguing, but… View Post

WHY HELLO THERE. It’s been a hot minute since I had a Five Things Friday post and really this whole month in general has been a little wonky in terms of a posting schedule. I took breaks when my brain simply wasn’t working rather than try and push out mediocre content, took a break for our trip to Greece, and then just worked on getting the momentum going again. I have some fun stuff coming up in the next couple months, so we should be getting back to our regularly scheduled program here in October. Thank you as always for… View Post

Happy Friday friends! Sorry for the disappearance of these Friday posts for the past two weeks; I felt like I had a lot of things come up and wasn’t doing my best with time management.

Hello! Welcome to the end of the week and the beginning of the weekend. It’s still August, which means we still don’t have any weekend plans until the beginning of September (hey there Greece!). I’m looking forward to a nice, slow couple days before the week starts again. What are you up to? To wrap it up, here are some of the things I’m loving this week (OFFICE SUPPLIES!!). *some affiliate links below 1.

Happy Friday guys! I’ve been spending most of this week working and watching the Crossfit Games. I love being able to watch them because I always feel so motivated to get back to the gym and work my hardest. Whenever I want to give up in a workout, I can just think about they had to row AN ENTIRE MARATHON. That’s 26.2 miles on a stationary rower, no headphones, for an average of 3 hours. Get out. Now that our big party is behind us, this weekend is pretty relaxed. We will probably go see Mission Impossible at some point… View Post
