Over The Weekend

over-the-weekend-homecoming

It was homecoming weekend at my alma mater, the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. We were set to play Northwestern, a formidable opponent. Though Michigan has won each match against Northwestern over the past few years, most expected an exciting and close game.  Unfortunately for Northwestern, Michigan’s new coach Jim Harbaugh has something to prove.  With a 38 – 0 win, Michigan continued the process of reestablishing its reputation as one of the best teams in college football history.  I can’t wait to see how the rest of the season plays out. Forever, Go Blue!

exploring-downtown-chicago

IMG_6212Over the weekend, I decided to spend some time exploring Chicago, the city I so love yet often take for granted.  Saturday was dedicated to on foot exploration of the most populous downtown attractions.  I spent the day walking along the Mag Mile, taking in the beautiful city views I often take for granted.  I hopped in-and-out of the many stores lining the tourist filled Magnificent Mile, made my way through River North, the Loop and finally Grand and Millennium parks as well as the waterfront.  I even made it a point to visit Cloud Gate (aka ‘The Bean’).  It’s been years since I’ve spent so much time in these areas and this weekend reminded me of why I love this city so much.Chicago Waterfront

I fell in love with the windy city just as I did during my first visit when I was nine years old.  I highly recommend taking some time to explore the city in which you live as though you were new to the area.  There will most certainly be more windy city excursions in the future, rediscovering different sights and neighborhoods in the city I so adore.

Thank you so much for reading and happy Monday!

over-the-weekend-my-first-pumpkin-spice-latte-ever

First Sip of pumpkin spice latte ever!Happy Monday everyone! Remember the height of the hype surrounding all things pumpkin spice last year? From lattes and cupcakes to mints and even beer, the pumpkin spice obsession was at an all time high last year.  Despite being surrounded by all things pumpkin during my favorite season, I hadn’t tried anything pumpkin spice flavored until now.  This weekend, I decided it was high time I try the most loved of all things pumpkin spice, the pumpkin spice latte. In all honesty, while I enjoyed the latte, it didn’t quite meet my admittedly high expectations.  Thought I’m tempted to blame my underwhelming first experience with the pumpkin spice latte on a lack of history with anything pumpkin flavored, I understand that my preference for a more unique flavor profile is also a big factor.  Needless to say, I’ll stick with my favorite, the chai tea latte.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a great start to your week!
