Pleased Monday! We’re back again with 10 items! So, the 1st 10 random stream of consciousness matters as they occur to thoughts today–ready–go!

10 Matters 10.31

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

(Our to start with time trick or dealing with, clearly June was much too younger last yr!) Not absolutely sure if the rain will maintain off or how extensive we will last. June has both of those a bat and a bunny costume–here’s a image of her bat costume higher than. 🥰 We may alter into the bunny later–we shall see!

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

They are nontoxic produced of coconut wax and $30 each individual. I love them. Thank you, Deb! Also, you should adhere to Deb’s dwelling Instagram account–it’s SO beautiful!

3. On being a guardian and vacation:

I have traveled really a bit without having June considering the fact that turning into a mother and was reminded of one particular of the most effective areas of becoming a mum or dad returning house from Lisbon: you’re under no circumstances unfortunate to arrive house from family vacation anymore. As anyone who would always get unfortunate at the tail-finish of a journey because it was practically over, it is really good to be similarly as thrilled to arrive property to see your baby as you were being to go on vacation in the 1st location!

4. Speaking of, I know I just acquired home but the impending drizzly weather has me itching to strategy a trip to Florida.

We usually often go to Ft. Lauderdale and hoping to sneak down there at minimum as soon as ahead of our journey in the spring. We’re scheduling to do the same issue we did last calendar year in renting a friends apartment for the thirty day period of March (splitting time with Neal’s parents—so we’d just take two weeks and they’ll consider two weeks or some thing alongside these strains). Fingers crossed we can get there in December or January nevertheless. (FYI, the Hilton ideal on the beach is really relatives helpful, we have stayed there a pair moments!)

5. One particular of my favorite foods in Lisbon was this Greek cafe that has me craving Greek foodstuff, so Greek hen bowls have been in the rotation a great deal recently!

June enjoys them too! (Nicely, minus the salad element. I simply cannot say she’s big on salad.)

6. Talking of Mediterranean food, I went to Lyra for supper a several months ago with girlfriends and it was so superior.

Extremely really advocate if you’re seeking for a excellent spot in the west loop. Its incredibly energetic and fun environment and I think it would be excellent for a day. There is a wine and piano bar down the avenue termed Grapes & Grains that would be excellent for a nightcap!

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

Neal has not been but (I have only been when) but it is SO cool—the decor is like a lovely previous English pub with elevated Indian fusion meals. 

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

Chocolate brown water-proof suede tremendous comfy tall boots Sure Remember to. (I find them TTS. Certainly the greatest boots!) Also, I just realized Tuckernuck carries the Velma (incredibly equivalent model, I have owned equally above the years) in chestnut tan!

9. My project for this 7 days:

I ordered a bunch of vintage South Shore Line posters for our hallway, and I need to have to get them hung! The South Shore Line is the coach that runs from Chicago to Northwest Indiana (including Beverly Shores, in which Neal’s family’s lake dwelling is!) and they developed a bunch of posters to boost tourism again in the 1920’s. There are a whole lot of seriously awesome kinds and I considered it would be a fantastic use of the very blank room in our extended narrow hallway! (Last but not least finding art on the walls, you know, 6 yrs later on.)

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

And they’re 30% off suitable now! I Reside in these jeans in the course of the coldest winter months–they’re lined with a light-weight fleecy material and are so a great deal warmer than frequent trousers, but they really do not make you overheat within! I have two of their Rockstar skinny designs (which are excellent for tall boots) but I just ordered a couple of their straight leg models to examination out, way too.

Hope you have a quite joyful Halloween!! xoxo
