The 2013 Save Babies Blogger Baby Shower in Chicago

Wow, you guys, the second annual Blogger Baby Shower was a blast! We seriously couldn’t have asked for a better day. The weather was perfect, the company was amazing, we raised awareness for a wonderful, life-saving cause, and we met some really great people! Oh, there was food, too. And prizes. 😉

Summers at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry (giveaway)

Summer fun: we’ve been busy!

Oh my, I cannot believe it’s July. WHERE did this summer go?! I made a huge list of things I wanted to do with the kids this summer and I’ve barely done any of them… maybe hiking the state park an hour away and riding the riverboat were a bit too ambitious lol. But there’s still time! And anyway, we’ve been keeping really busy and have had so much fun. My posts about this stuff have been too few and far between so I’m attempting to catch up right now with a massive photo

Taste of Chicago Festival

Ya know, I’ve lived just outside of Chicago all my life (okay, except the ~4 years I was in Iowa for school) and I’ve never been to the Taste of Chicago!
