There’s a thousand tiles missing from my kitchen along with the baking soda, the birthday plate and let’s face it, an ounce of my sanity. But who’s counting? Someone please tell the weather to get the memo it’s not Winter, but still Fall. My poor 2 year-old Tiger, Candy Corn, Spiderman and Repunzel had to trick or treat in the warm and domestic confines of Whole Foods to escape the not-so-kind 40 degree, blowing wind wet elements. However, organic lollipops cancel out most wrongs. Including Mother Nature’s. Which reminds me, my girls have science projects featuring farm life which we tend to know A LOT about here in the city. HA. So if your specialty is farm dogs and chicken coops, please comment below. Until then, I’ll be hibernating in an alpaca cardigan, these comfy Rockport booties, and eating leftover gummy bears until LA next week.

Beautiful brunch at C Chicago


Our date had a bit of a rough start. First, I failed to feed the street meter and I got slapped with a parking ticket. Then the hubs sliced into a parked Hyundai, and by the time that was all said and done, we were late. Not the best way to kick-off the much anticipated date. Thankfully, a melon and lemon verbena shot was right around the corner, and there is very little that can’t remedy, right? Soon we parked ourselves at C Chicago, and settled in for a luxurious brunch. I think they saw the writing on the wall because I got that shooter right off the bat. The bright and sunny restaurant, and the delectable four courses, healed all wounds. Parking ticket? What parking ticket? We felt spoiled, which is pretty much how every date should be. While we kicked ourselves for not bringing the kids, they would’ve been all over the lemon ricotta pancakes, it was nice to hear ourselves talk, walk in my comfy Rockports, and eat at a normal pace. And yes, we licked the key lime pie plate clean and didn’t even have to share. It was definitely a day date to remember. We’ll be back for the egg white omelette AND the lemon verbena shooter.
