Winter wonderland

Well, I guess its winter!! It started blowing snow everywhere last night and then we woke up to this! Gotta say, the first big snowfall of the winter never gets old...especially when it's this pretty. It's March and April when snow becomes super annoying.

Brunch at a nearby favorite of ours, Tiztal Cafe. Ahhhh, can't say enough awesome things about this place! Sometimes the wait for food can be a little long but it's always worth it. The chilaquiles are my go to!!

Ghost town

I had to work for a few hours today and man, was downtown empty. Fine with me! I was the only person in the office so I watched Netflix and played games on my phone. And got paid. Not bad.

Thanksgiving feast!

Before we chowed down on Thanksgiving dinner, AJ made a yummy breakfast! Eggs, sausage and maybe the best waffles I've ever had. Thanksgiving was at a friend's apt and wayyyy too much food. I won't complain about that!

Mini cheesecakes!

I pre-made some mini cheesecakes for Thanksgiving dinner today! Fingers crossed they taste as good as they look! Here is the recipe - the secret is to use Biscoff cookies instead of graham crackers/vanilla wafers for the crust!

Sooooo I had some sexy pics taken today! One of my friends had hers taken and said it was one of the best things she's ever done. So I put down my deposit and set a date! I read the contract wrong and didn't realize I was supposed to bring my own clothes. Oops! Luckily the photographer had plenty of stuff for me to borrow! Some of the poses were uncomfortable and I was really tired but man, photoshop is a beautiful thing :) For anyone interested, here is the site! And you can find her as Pure Boudoir on Instagram! So worth the money and time.

I needz coffee

Finally came back to my old stomping grounds at Intelligentsia on Broadway. I hung out here like 2 or 3 times a week for years. It's amazing coffee and just a great place to get work done but also to people watch. Lots of first dates here and good material for people like me :)

Regular day at work and then a show at the Elbo Room where I did some storytelling! Trying to do more of it because it's really the only thing that makes me write!!

An art gallery called Gallery 19 near our apt has this super cool sculpture of basically a female mannequin made out of tree branches (I think!) I love art like this as opposed to going to a gallery with a painting of a red circle. Not sure how that's art.

A little walking adventure in Ravenswood and a mediocre brunch at Pauline's. I hate to say it. I was really excited to eat there but I ordered the eggs benedict and they were super bland. Oh well, plenty of other options in the city!

This little lady can be super cute when shes not being a pain in the ass.

New shirt!

I ordered a shirt from the Lucius site and decided to order a $20 surprise shirt and got this great black one! Maybe the best live show I've ever seen so be sure to see them the next time they come in town!

Lots happenin

Fall colors are here! Also lots of great graffiti around. We went to see Tancred and The Joy Formidable at Lincoln Hall tonight. Tancred is very 90s rock and makes me think of every high school movie in the late 90s/early 00s. Joy Formidable is soooo incredibly amazing. Great stage presence, funny and the music is really rich and just really good rock.
