10 Issues 10.31

1. We’re going trick or managing with mates tonight!

(Our initially time trick or managing, clearly June was also young last 12 months!) Not absolutely sure if the rain will maintain off or how lengthy we will previous. June has both of those a bat and a bunny costume–here’s a photo of her bat costume previously mentioned. 🥰 We could adjust into the bunny later–we shall see!

2. A sweet buddy dropped off two candles from this regional Chicago candle company (she’s on Etsy!) as a gift–the “Midwest” (like a pumpkin-y vanilla scent) and “Provence” (amber + lavender) and they scent Amazing.

They are nontoxic built of coconut wax and $30 each individual. I like them. Thank you, Deb! Also, you ought to comply with Deb’s household Instagram account–it’s SO attractive!

3. On currently being a mum or dad and journey:

I have traveled rather a little bit without June considering that getting a mother and was reminded of just one of the greatest elements of being a guardian returning household from Lisbon: you are never sad to appear household from getaway anymore. As anyone who would constantly get unfortunate at the tail-stop of a excursion because it was just about more than, it is truly wonderful to be equally as psyched to arrive house to see your newborn as you were to go on trip in the initially position!

4. Talking of, I know I just received residence but the impending drizzly weather has me itching to approach a vacation to Florida.

We normally normally go to Ft. Lauderdale and hoping to sneak down there at least when ahead of our vacation in the spring. We’re arranging to do the exact same thing we did past yr in leasing a good friends condo for the month of March (splitting time with Neal’s parents—so we’d just take two weeks and they’ll choose two months or anything together those traces). Fingers crossed we can get there in December or January however. (FYI, the Hilton proper on the beach is extremely relatives welcoming, we’ve stayed there a pair situations!)

5. A person of my favored meals in Lisbon was this Greek restaurant that has me craving Greek foodstuff, so Greek chicken bowls have been in the rotation a great deal recently!

June loves them as well! (Nicely, minus the salad aspect. I cannot say she’s large on salad.)

6. Talking of Mediterranean foodstuff, I went to Lyra for meal a number of months ago with girlfriends and it was so great.

Remarkably very advise if you’re searching for a terrific place in the west loop. Its really energetic and exciting environment and I think it would be terrific for a day. There’s a wine and piano bar down the street known as Grapes & Grains that would be wonderful for a nightcap!

7. Talking of good dining places, I’m dying to get back to Armitage Alehouse.

Neal hasn’t been however (I’ve only been the moment) but it is SO cool—the decor is like a attractive aged English pub with elevated Indian fusion foods. 

8. Did you see Blondo came out with the Sierra boot in a stunning dim chocolate brown? 👀

Chocolate brown watertight suede super comfortable tall boots Certainly Please. (I uncover them TTS. Truly the finest boots!) Also, I just recognized Tuckernuck carries the Velma (very similar model, I have owned both of those more than the yrs) in chestnut tan!

9. My undertaking for this 7 days:

I purchased a bunch of classic South Shore Line posters for our hallway, and I need to get them hung! The South Shore Line is the educate that operates from Chicago to Northwest Indiana (including Beverly Shores, where by Neal’s family’s lake home is!) and they designed a bunch of posters to promote tourism back again in the 1920’s. There are a great deal of actually cool ones and I assumed it would be a excellent use of the really blank space in our lengthy slender hallway! (Eventually receiving artwork on the walls, you know, 6 decades later.)

10. Previous Navy came out with new “Built in Warm” jeans!!!

And they are 30% off proper now! I Reside in these jeans all through the coldest winter season months–they’re lined with a light-weight fleecy substance and are so a great deal hotter than regular trousers, but they don’t make you overheat within! I have two of their Rockstar skinny styles (which are fantastic for tall boots) but I just ordered a pair of their straight leg types to test out, also.

Hope you have a incredibly joyful Halloween!! xoxo
