My Blogging had come to pretty much well...non existent. With being a crazy busy mom, wife, designer, wedding planner and working during season for a wholesale showroom and traveling like a nut! With all of this and well life going on, we decided to just go completely crazy and open our very first BRICK AND MORTAR STORE! <3
If you have had a chance to head in to Stephanie Izard's (Top Chef) Restaurant Girl & The Goat-, in Chicago's West Loop Neighborhood, then you know her food is TO DIE FOR. My first experience was thanks to my Bestie for my 30th birthday while I was pregnant with A. Needless to say I craved it for a while after.
(I mean check out this "diner")
I had a chance to get to her diner Little Goat on several occasions, and this time was extra special as my eldest brother was in town from NYC. One of his favorite restaurants is Girl & The Goat and we thought no brainer to take him over to the Diner.
(oh hey handsome brother)
They were a little crowded, and the wait time was about 30 minutes, I thought "great, what the heck is my now 16 month old going to do for 30 min". He had a blast just saying "hi" to everyone in the entry waiting area, playing with the decor and well just being a kid. Best part was, no one seemed to mind.
Once we were seated they offered a fun kids menu for him to color which had some pretty good options for kiddos. Everything is made from scratch (can we say hot cinnamon buns?) YES PLEASE!
and the food is unbelievable.
We started with a hot iced cinnamon roll for the table, it was so good we ended up ordering a second. Me the Patty Melt, my brother the omelet and the babe had some hashbrowns, eggs and fruit.
(insert open drooling mouth here)
Id have to say this place gets a BIG FAT 10 for kid friendly, its hustling and bustling which always helps with kids who tend to scream or yell (i swear only on occasion), and the food is incredible.
Take my word for it and head to the LITTLE GOAT!
Check out their menu HERE
f your'e a C- section survivor (thats a post for another day) then you know the struggle is real with your post C bod. Fashion has changed for me, it used to be, throw on whatever you want/like and good to go. Those days are long gone, and I am loving and accepting of the new me (with the help of some go to products). My new FAVE are Yummie Tummie Pants!
(Founded by a Real Housewife of New York Heather Thomson)
I had my first experience with Yummie Tummie while I was shopping the sale rack at my local Nordstrom Rack. I though (like every other new mama) "OH these are nice leggings" and tossed in to my cart they went.
I got home, slipped these babies on and life has never been the same.
I then found that Yummie Tummie is also available in shapewear, tanks, active wear and more. GAME CHANGER.
Look past the never changing image of the "thin" woman wearing shapewear- something I will never understand, and what I think is a problem with our society.. but god thats a post for another day!
Anyway shop Yummie Tummie Here
Thank me later!
