Cubs Game

We had the opportunity to go to a Cubs Game a couple weeks ago compliments of where I work and it was great time, even though the Cubs didn’t win…

It ‘s so nice to break up the work week with something spontaneous.

Hooray for treating a Wednesday like it was the weekend!


Why we LOVE Fall

I grew up a water baby and I loovveeddd SUMMER. What kid doesn’t? Summer vacation, hanging out with friends, sleeping in, swimming at the pool everyday…

Summers hold a lot of fond memories for me, but I think that over the past couple of years I have traded summer as my favorite for fall. Yep, I just can’t get enough of everything Fall and here is why-

1. Apple Picking 

We have made quite the tradition out of Apple picking

2. Apple Cider

3. Baking Apple Pies

4. Oktoberfest

Another tradition – Shnitzel Platz with Jeff’s Fam

5. Fall Leaves

6. Boots

7.  Fall Sweaters 

Tehehe, my Murphy is such a good boy, Compass would never tolerate this

8. Caramel Apples

9. Halloween

We have been obsessed with HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, hence the 1920’s costumes

10. Football

NIU Homecoming Game 2011 – Jeff and I are both Northern Illinois University Alum, we met in college

11. Carving Pumpkins
