Join us at the theatre!

The performing arts are such an important part of my youth and our family culture. Too often they are ignored but slowly, we can all use social media to bring attention to the amazing talent in and around Chicagoland. Everywhere, really. If you feel the same and this is a priority for your kids, then I’d love for you to join me this Sunday, 6/9/18 at Drury Lane Theater for a special run of “Matilda.” You’ve all seen the movie…now we have the theater production and we couldn’t be more excited! It’s a dark story with a true happy ending.

Babies + pink chocolate.

Sunday was so busy. I was cursing myself @ 7:30am but felt completely fulfilled by 5pm which is when Lola and I returned home. Talk about a full day! And while I typically prefer a lounge-y kinda Sunday; I cannot lie…we had a great mother/daughter day. Olivia had a Dad Day in the city with her uncle which was filled with arcade games, burgers and hanging out with my brother’s cats. That’s living her best life if you don’t know my Olivia.

Mark Your Calendar: Tickled Pink.

Every year I look forward to a somewhat unorthodox breast cancer event. It’s not a race. It’s not a walk. It’s not a shopping event. It’s a giant party or gala, rather, called Tickled Pink. Tickled Pink is in partnership with Bright Pink, which is a 401c3 that helps build awareness and early detection for breast cancer. Not only does this organization support the survivors but it also provides support and education for those afflicted with this nasty disease in the early stages.

Casually chic. <+ an event with moí>

In case you don’t live in the Midwest, it is f-f-f-f-freezing here. Dressing cute is still a priority but warmth is everything and while I never thought I would be a pullover girl, I can tell you I have officially converted this week! And the best news of all is that the one I am wearing is a mere $20! You cannot beat that!

Take me to the movies!

I am pretty sure I’ve discovered family gold when it comes to weekend activities. You can thank me later. I first started sharing about CMX Cinemas on my IG and my DMs blew up so I wanted to share in a full blog post as well.

Visiting this luxurious movie theater parents might just award you Mom of the Year OR Wife of the Year so listen up because “going to the movies” just got a whole lot cooler.
