You best believe I waited with baited breath for the official start of Christmas music on 93.9 FM in Chicago! I was with my colleagues on that afternoon of Thursday, November 8th approximately 4:05pm CST; a calendar invite was even sent to remind us all of the glory to come! Admittedly, it was a bit… Continue reading My Top 10 Christmas Songs!
Hello friends. I got a lot done that has essentially been looming over me for awhile. It really started with an impromptu organization of all my papers at home. I feel like a mafioso or grandmother (or both) when I say "my papers" and I quite enjoy that. Retirement statements, insurance policies, lease agreements, oh… Continue reading I Vant to Be Alone! Or Do I?
Do you guys look at apartment, condo, or house listings on the reg? Do you ever look at puppies online and come up with all of their full name in an instant? Do you ever Google "____ pain treatment" on a daily basis? Do you delete the same horsesh*t dating apps off your phone every… Continue reading Am I Where I’m Supposed to Be?

Last weekend was spent celebrating my honorary "niece", Emma's, fourth birthday! It was gorgeous weather in the suburbs; sunny, blue skies with a nice breeze. It was a fun mixture of family, friends, adults, and kids, as well as numerous unicorn related paraphernalia, including a cake, stuffed animals, various gifts, and balloons. From my estimation,… Continue reading Birthday Planz
I like cooler weather, but September has been really all over the place in Chicago between the thunderstorms, humidity and overcast clouds. Not exactly what I was hoping for post Labor Day. It does lead me to believe that I could be a meteorologist for one of Chicago's news stations because apparently, you don't need… Continue reading Smörgåsbord IV
Hello dear friends! Apologies for the delay, but she's been celebrating for the gods this week, so much so that by the end of it all, I was shakier than Liza Minnelli on a boat. That's okay though. It was worth it and I'll be continuing to recoup today. Brace yourself for a long one,… Continue reading So You Think You Can Weekend?
This was a rather front-loaded fun week. On Thursday, I enjoyed happy hour with my colleague/friend Abbey, who is delightful, smart, mature beyond her years, and very fun to hang out with. That happy "hour" turned into a romp through Boystown, as her dad had a work event at Sidetrack, which is always a treat.… Continue reading This Week in Shenanigans
What obsessions are reigning queen in my world right now? Let's break it down! Jonathan Van Ness! The "Groomer" on Queer Eye. Also, the genius behind Gay of Thrones. Also just the light of social media, topping my "most searched list" these days. He's by far the most flamboyant of the Fab 5 and there… Continue reading My 3 New Obsessions
Saturday was spent in celebration of my "niece", Lily's, 7th birthday! She is the sweetest little lady and is clearly adored by her family and friends all who know her, myself included. It's been super cool watching her grow up in the last four years. She's very talented (ballet, gymnastics, handwriting), a great big sister… Continue reading Young Heart, Old Body
