Chicago trip!!! It was GREAT. It was SHORT. I want to go back. I wish I could have spent more than a full day there, but when I think about it, I got to see a lot in such a little amount of time. I was going to post these in My Everyday Life series last week but then I realized that there’s too many of them. So here we go! Out & About: Chicago Edition!
Category: out & about
I just got back from a SUPER quick trip to Chicago and unfortunately don’t have a recipe for you today. BUT! I have a good reason. I traveled with my friend Amy (who worked hard at getting tickets) to see the live taping of Oprah and Dr. Brené Brown’s Lifeclass!!!!!!!! It was surreal/glorious/life-changing and ahhhh-mazing. I left feeling completely inspired and feel ready to do some serious life work. I also really want to go back to Chicago. That city is awesome and I wanted to eat at SOO many places but only had the chance to eat three meals there. Boo!
Anyways, I need to get settled back in our routine here, but I just wanted to say HELLO and let you know I’m thinking about you. I’ll most likely be chatting with Joy about seeing Oprah on our podcast and am working on a post about my experience & trip to Chicago, so STAY TUNED.
But for now…. OMG OPRAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH. She was sitting in that empty chair right behind us. We were freaking out!
I think I might have mentioned that my husband Casey started a wine tasting group. Did I mention that? I think I was supposed to show you pictures of our first tasting party but I never did that. Must remedy that soon. Please forgive. Anyways! A few weeks ago we went to Tomales Bay Oyster Company for a white wine-themed get together/lunch with oysters & the like. As a person who doesn’t care for white wine (I know! I KNOW. It doesn’t matter what white wine I try, I still don’t/won’t like it), I chose to focus on the food for our little get-together; it’s what I do best! For those of you seeking fun/unique places to go in the Bay Area, I highly suggest checking out The Tomales Bay Oyster Company.
A few weeks ago, we set off on a Saturday morning to have an outdoor adventure. We didn’t have much of a plan… I just wanted to see the ocean and hear waves crashing-that’s all! We grabbed a soccer ball, some sunscreen, a couple of snacks and a few drinks and headed out west to Point Reyes station for lunch and then Dillon Beach afterward. It was a day that was refreshing, calming & exhilarating all at once. It was FANTASTIC.
