Happy Monday! We’re again with 10 matters! So, the to start with 10 random stream of consciousness points as they arrive to head today–ready–go!

10 Factors 10.31

1. We’re going trick or managing with close friends tonight!

(Our very first time trick or dealing with, definitely June was much too younger very last year!) Not certain if the rain will maintain off or how lengthy we will final. June has both equally a bat and a bunny costume–here’s a photograph of her bat costume higher than. 🥰 We may possibly adjust into the bunny later–we shall see!

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

They are nontoxic created of coconut wax and $30 each. I adore them. Thank you, Deb! Also, you really should adhere to Deb’s home Instagram account–it’s SO wonderful!

3. On staying a guardian and journey:

I have traveled really a little bit with no June due to the fact turning out to be a mother and was reminded of a person of the best parts of currently being a parent returning dwelling from Lisbon: you’re in no way sad to arrive household from vacation any more. As a person who would usually get sad at the tail-finish of a excursion simply because it was just about around, it is genuinely wonderful to be equally as energized to appear household to see your child as you were to go on holiday vacation in the initial put!

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

We generally generally go to Ft. Lauderdale and hoping to sneak down there at least the moment right before our excursion in the spring. We’re planning to do the same thing we did previous year in renting a pals apartment for the thirty day period of March (splitting time with Neal’s parents—so we’d just take two weeks and they’ll acquire two weeks or anything along these strains). Fingers crossed we can get there in December or January although. (FYI, the Hilton suitable on the beach is extremely family members pleasant, we have stayed there a couple instances!)

5. One of my most loved foods in Lisbon was this Greek cafe that has me craving Greek food, so Greek rooster bowls have been in the rotation a ton these days!

June enjoys them as well! (Properly, minus the salad component. I cannot say she’s large on salad.)

6. Talking of Mediterranean foods, I went to Lyra for meal a couple weeks back with girlfriends and it was so excellent.

Very hugely advocate if you are on the lookout for a great spot in the west loop. Its quite lively and pleasurable ambiance and I assume it would be excellent for a date. There is a wine and piano bar down the road termed Grapes & Grains that would be excellent for a nightcap!

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

Neal hasn’t been nevertheless (I have only been the moment) but it is SO cool—the decor is like a stunning aged English pub with elevated Indian fusion foods. 

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

Chocolate brown water-proof suede tremendous cozy tall boots Yes Be sure to. (I discover them TTS. Genuinely the biggest boots!) Also, I just recognized Tuckernuck carries the Velma (extremely identical variation, I have owned both of those over the decades) in chestnut tan!

9. My task for this 7 days:

I ordered a bunch of vintage South Shore Line posters for our hallway, and I will need to get them hung! The South Shore Line is the coach that runs from Chicago to Northwest Indiana (together with Beverly Shores, exactly where Neal’s family’s lake property is!) and they designed a bunch of posters to endorse tourism again in the 1920’s. There are a lot of seriously neat types and I thought it would be a good use of the pretty blank place in our extended narrow hallway! (Lastly acquiring art on the walls, you know, 6 many years later on.)

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

And they’re 30% off correct now! I Reside in these jeans all through the coldest winter months–they’re lined with a light-weight fleecy content and are so much hotter than normal trousers, but they do not make you overheat within! I have two of their Rockstar skinny designs (which are good for tall boots) but I just requested a couple of their straight leg kinds to take a look at out, far too.

Hope you have a very content Halloween!! xoxo
