10 Things 10.31

Content Monday! We’re back with 10 things! So, the very first 10 random stream of consciousness things as they come to intellect today–ready–go!

10 Points 10.31

1. We’re going trick or dealing with with buddies tonight!

(Our to start with time trick or dealing with, of course June was far too youthful very last 12 months!) Not sure if the rain will keep off or how very long we will final. June has both a bat and a bunny costume–here’s a photo of her bat costume earlier mentioned. 🥰 We may transform into the bunny later–we shall see!

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

They’re nontoxic created of coconut wax and $30 every. I enjoy them. Thank you, Deb! Also, you should abide by Deb’s household Instagram account–it’s SO lovely!

3. On staying a guardian and travel:

I have traveled very a little bit without the need of June since getting a mom and was reminded of a single of the most effective parts of becoming a guardian returning house from Lisbon: you’re never ever unfortunate to arrive household from holiday any longer. As a person who would constantly get unfortunate at the tail-conclusion of a journey mainly because it was practically over, it is seriously nice to be similarly as excited to occur household to see your child as you ended up to go on family vacation in the initially place!

4. Speaking of, I know I just received property but the impending drizzly weather has me itching to plan a excursion to Florida.

We generally often go to Ft. Lauderdale and hoping to sneak down there at least as soon as ahead of our vacation in the spring. We’re organizing to do the identical point we did very last 12 months in leasing a friends condominium for the month of March (splitting time with Neal’s parents—so we’d just take two months and they’ll take two weeks or some thing alongside people lines). Fingers crossed we can get there in December or January although. (FYI, the Hilton correct on the seashore is very loved ones welcoming, we’ve stayed there a pair moments!)

5. A single of my beloved foods in Lisbon was this Greek restaurant that has me craving Greek food items, so Greek chicken bowls have been in the rotation a lot these days!

June enjoys them too! (Perfectly, minus the salad part. I simply cannot say she’s significant on salad.)

6. Speaking of Mediterranean food items, I went to Lyra for meal a handful of weeks in the past with girlfriends and it was so superior.

Really very advocate if you’re on the lookout for a good location in the west loop. Its pretty lively and enjoyable environment and I consider it would be excellent for a date. There is a wine and piano bar down the avenue called Grapes & Grains that would be terrific for a nightcap!

7. Talking of fantastic dining places, I’m dying to get again to Armitage Alehouse.

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

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

Chocolate brown water resistant suede super cozy tall boots Yes Please. (I locate them TTS. Truly the best boots!) Also, I just realized Tuckernuck carries the Velma (incredibly comparable variation, I have owned both equally over the years) in chestnut tan!

9. My task for this week:

I ordered a bunch of classic South Shore Line posters for our hallway, and I have to have to get them hung! The South Shore Line is the practice that operates from Chicago to Northwest Indiana (including Beverly Shores, where Neal’s family’s lake dwelling is!) and they produced a bunch of posters to advertise tourism again in the 1920’s. There are a ton of seriously cool types and I assumed it would be a good use of the pretty blank room in our very long narrow hallway! (Ultimately receiving art on the partitions, you know, 6 a long time afterwards.)

10. Old Navy came out with new “Built in Warm” denims!!!

And they’re 30% off correct now! I Reside in these denims in the course of the coldest wintertime months–they’re lined with a light-weight fleecy substance and are so significantly hotter than common trousers, but they never make you overheat inside! I have two of their Rockstar skinny kinds (which are terrific for tall boots) but I just requested a couple of their straight leg types to take a look at out, as well.

Hope you have a very joyful Halloween!! xoxo
