Must we trade brunch dates and Bloody Mary’s for barely edible pancakes and sippy cups once we have kids? Hardly. Chicago restaurateurs, many of whom now claim the title of parents themselves, know how to host a good brunch which welcomes us and our progeny. Unlike some downtown areas which only [ ... ]
For those living in the middle of Missouri, there are only a few options for hitting the "big city" -- St. Louis, Mo., or Memphis, Tenn. Last spring, my gal pal Jessie and I chose to visit Memphis for the first time.
Our trip to Memphis might be one of the most unorganized trips I've ever take [ ... ]
I’m a sucker for an old-fashioned candy shop. I just love the candy-filled bins, the drugstore-feel complete with a bar and soda jerk…it makes everyone feel like a kid. With unique treats like Elvis Bark and chocolate-covered bacon, the Big Top Candy Shop in Austin, Texas is a fun treat for any [ ... ]
When planning out your summer road trip don't overlook Devil's Tower, Wyoming. It is one of my favorite side trips and possibly one of the most overlooked National Parks.

We ended up renting a villa in the Windsor Palms section. This is sight unseen, but we’ve had good experiences before so we’re hopeful that the five-bedroom, private pool home away from home will suit our needs nicely. (Yes, we need all that room – besides us and our kids, several family members from across the country will be meeting up with us to cheer Scott on!)
We purchased our theme park passes at home, so we won’t eat up precious park time doing those transactions in Disney. And the added bonus of buying tickets from our local AAA is that we received a Diamond Parking Pass, which gets us premiere parking in the lots at all the parks. This is so convenient when you’re leading (or carrying) sleepy kids out of Disney Studios after a day of Toy Story Mania!
We’ve made reservations at all our favorite restaurants 180 days in advance. This time tomorrow, I will be just hours away from a dinner at Chef Mickey’s (our traditional first meal there). I’ll keep you posted on the rest of our fab dining plans, which includes a celebratory dinner at Les Chefs de France after the race. Our first time there - I'm really looking forward to the creme brulee.
More to come….next time from sunny FLA!
