My heart is full after a week filled with friends and family. I loved having my best friend here for a long weekend and showing her around the city. I think she left loving Chicago as much as I do. Then, my in-laws visited us for a day because my father-in-law had a business meeting here. We introduced them to Eleven City Diner, and (of course) they thought it was delicious. I can’t wait for them to come visit us for a few days in November.
When Ally was in town, we had to go shopping, and I fell in love with this sweater from Loft. The details on the sleeves are so pretty. I can’t decide whether to get the soft berry or the autumn navy.
Skyler goes crazy every time we get a package from our friends at Chewy. This month, I wanted her to enjoy fall with us, so we got Grandma Lucy's Organic Pumpkin Oven Baked Dog Treats. I loved that they are made in the shape of tiny teddy bears, and she loved that they were tasty. I have mentioned before that Sky often hides her treats for later if they are not her favorites, but she gobbled these up right away. I will definitely be buying these for her in the future.
Disclosure: Chewy.com sent me Grandma Lucy's Organic Pumpkin Oven Baked Dog Treats to review. No further compensation was received, and all opinions are my own.
Lately, I have been up for having chili almost every day, so I was excited to get The Chili Cookbook by Robb Walsh. The cookbook features 60 amazing chili recipes that take you on a trip all over the United States. It has a great variety of options, from vegetarian chili to Tyler Florence’s short rib chili. I love that he features several slow cooker recipes and gives descriptions of different regions interpretations of chili. As someone who loves chili and learning about Chicago’s World Fair of 1893 (thanks to The Devil in the White City), I loved learning that chili con carne became popular at the world fair. Every time I cook chili now, I reach for this book. I’m excited to try as many as I can.
I received a copy of "The Chili Cookbook" from Blogging for Books for review, but all opinions are my own.
My sweet bestie bought me this gorgeous navy statement necklace from Francesca’s for a late birthday present. I can’t wait to style it with my favorite sweaters.
Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!
