Fall Closet Classics

This week was a chilly one in Chicago. A reminder that summer’s very short cameo is almost at an end. But with that comes my favorite season – Fall, Autumn, OtoƱo. Call it what you want. It all means time to bring out those jeans, boots, and sweaters.

This season I’m excited to see that flare jeans have once again made a comeback. And as the season progresses I’m sure my flares will just get wider and wider.

I’m happy to keep a classic look going with a simple white tee. Nothing says all American like a white tee and jeans. A white tee is so versatile and with so many cuts, styles, and textures you can never have enough in your closet. And the best part is it won’t ever go out of style. Its a great way to stay casual, while looking put together. I wanted to keep the look simple and just wore it with a pair of boots in taupe, a great color for fall.

2015 Chicago Bears Meijer Family Fest

This past weekend we ventured out to the Chicago Bears Meijer Family Fest. I must admit that I did not realize how hard it would be with a baby and toddler. First I didn’t think we’d be stuck in traffic for as long as we were. I’ve been to huge sold out concerts at Soldier Field before, and the traffic was a bigger mess for this event than for that, which has more people in attendance.

WDW Wednesday - Picking a Date

Now that we know we are going to Disney, we now have to decide on a date.  For many people there are different factors that go into deciding this. Schedules, budgets, weather, and crowds are a few that come to mind.

For us, our children are not in school and our work schedules pretty much are flexible. So we could go at anytime. However, we do love the idea of bringing the grandmas with us, not just to help us with the kiddos, but because we know how happy it would make them to see their grandkids excited to be at the happiest place on earth! With that said, both of our mothers work for the school system. So their vacation time coincides with just about everyone’s vacation time. Our trip will need to revolve around those dates.

Happy Anniversary To Us

We recently celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary. And like years past it always seems like we were just married yesterday. 

This year with new baby and a very rambunctious toddler it was a bit tough to find my husband the perfect gift. Thank goodness for the Internet. And more specifically thank you to the very addictive Etsy! 

Keeping with tradition, I opted to find something made of wood. But what do you get someone who has everything and asks for nothing?! Luckily I remembered he had mentioned that he needed to get a new BBQ brush. I'm glad he didn't go out and purchase this for himself. I was able to find a moderately priced brush on Etsy that I was able to personalize as well. 

Then of course I still needed to add a little something more. After all it was five years.  I went with an Italian Chianti from Tuscany as a reminder of our incredible honeymoon to Florence. Fitting that the year of the wine is 2010. I'm very happy to say that he loved the gifts! 

As for me he also kept with tradition and gifted me a beautiful personalized wooden box for my jewelry. I love it!
