almost wordless week(end)

What’s new, crew! Sorry I disappeared for a few days – the rest of the week was a bit of a blur thanks to some unforeseen family stuff and I usually don’t have time to write on the weekends (too busy eating to write about eating, yaknowwhatimean?)

But while it’s been eventful to say the least, I did manage to have some great moments of fun out and about. If I took the time to explain each and every moment this post would be a decade long so let’s do an (almost) wordless weekend.


Just a little pumpkin-crazy


Early morning run in my favorite tech top from lululemon.


…Followed by a heavy dose of veggie icing and the Today show


Got some Skoop in the mail! So excited to review this next week for you guys!


And just like that it’s fall in Chicago! On the walk to work


Avocado-tomato grilled cheese + pumpkin beer.

unnamed (7)

Slowly (but surely) building up the muscles again. Yoga Sculpt

Homeslice Wheelhouse patio - my new favorite happy hour spot. I didn't take my own pic because the travel channel was filming there!

Eating allll the pizza


Moscow Mule + pizza with olive oil, garlic (so much!), basil, feta and tomatoes. I died.

Been listening to a lot of John Mayer lately. It's the perfect writing music! You either love him or you hate him...

BYOO – Bring Your Own Oatmeal to Starbucks. 9 out of 10 times the baristas will help a sister out πŸ™‚


Bad mood killer. Best snack in the history of snacks. Candy corn + super salty peanuts

I’m also trying to create a pumpkin chili recipe today so I’ll be sharing that as soon as I’m sure it tastes great πŸ˜‰

Can’t wait to read all about your weekends! Have a fabulous Monday!


  • What’s your favorite day of the week and why?
  • Love or hate John Mayer?
  • Best part of your weekend…go!


  1. That pizza looks amazing! I can’t wait to get myself some this weekend! I love Saturdays, the possibilities are endless and it’s the only day I have absolutely nothing planned! I love john Mayer too! His music can be so relaxing and a mood changer for me πŸ™‚

    1. Saturday days are amazing…you’re right, the possibilities are endless and that’s such a great feeling after a hard week. And right now I’m listening to John Mayer, drinking coffee and writing next to a pumpkin candle. Things couldn’t be more relaxing haha

  2. I love candy corn!! Yummy!! Also, fabulous, fun, delicious looking pictures!! Glad you had a great weekend and you look fabulous!! Awesome muscles!! XOXO!!

  3. OMG I want everything from each picture. Love that the Travel Channel was filming there–I hope you were taking on a hilarious eating challenge πŸ˜€ I hated candy corn growing up and then randomly had a green apple flavored version and now I love it.
    Yeah I’m weird get over it.

    1. green apple?! What a weirdo! And I wouldn’t call it an eating challenge BUT I was the only one who finished my pizza…and my friends were acting like it was a big deal. I mean…it’s called a personal pizza for a reason AND it fit nicely on a normal sized dinner plate so why would I NOT finish it?? Come on! You get it, I’m sure πŸ™‚

  4. Oh man, I loathe candy corn. Straight up hate it. It’s probably the only candy I’m not even tempted to buy or snack on if it’s available to me. I had an unfortunate incident in preschool involving a pumpkin carving followed by eating too many of those candy-corn-esque little pumpkins (and throwing up said pumpkins once I got home…), and ever since then I’ve been 100% turned off candy corn or any other candy like it. Nope nope nope. More for you! Haha πŸ™‚

    Also, Homeslice is the bomb. Or at least, was the bomb the one time I went there. But I LOVED it!

    1. Hahaha isn’t it funny how one scarring experience from childhood can influence your eating forever? To this day I still can’t eat black olives thanks to a traumatizing event as a four year old πŸ™‚ Maybe we should make Homeslice the meet up location when we finally all get together!

  5. LOVE John Mayer. i have to brag for a sec — he was my “music find before he was famous” claim. a friend heard him play in a small coffee shop years ago in NYC when we were like 18, and emailed me immediately to say she heard a singer songwriter she knew i’d love. he didn’t even have an EP and i had to find a song on Napster (whatttt yep i’m old!) and a few friends and i drove to Montreal to see a small show of his the next year. stole my heart with his songwriting and i’ve been a major fan ever since! lots of great things in this post, girlfriend — love the top, the early morning runs, anything pumpkin, and you’re looking great! Skoop is awesome, btw — love it with almond milk in the morning!

  6. Tomato avocado grilled cheese is deeeeelicious. I think that John Mayer the man is probably pretty douchey, but I ❀ John Mayer the singer and listen to him all the time. It's perfect at-home yoga session music! Oh and PS – Just followed you on IG πŸ™‚

    1. I think once you get over his persona and actually listen to the music, you can’t deny it’s great to listen to, especially when trying to relax/meditate/do yoga. I love when places are nice about stuff like BYOO – hey I bought a cup of coffee! Just give me a little cup of hot water on the side πŸ˜‰

  7. That’s pretty epic that starbucks give you guys free hot water lol- in Australia, you’d probably pay to enter starbucks..

    also..Noosa Yogurt is AUSTRALIAN πŸ˜€

    Probably cliche but I love Saturdays. Hello, weekend.

  8. John Mayer, another singer who we don’t know of in the UK! Apart from the fact that he dated Katy Perry!
    Friday is my fav day of the week – you know you have the whole weekend ahead and a Friday evening is always pure bliss!
    LOVE all the pumpkin bits – there is nothing pumpkin here – you have to hunt for tinned pumpkin! I want to fly to the states right now with an empty suitcase and fill it with all things pumpkin!! πŸ™‚

  9. Hey girla!
    Loved alll those pics!!! LOVEEEE candy corn(there’s not enough corn lovers in this world), Love lululemon (super cute shirt!!), and I LOVE that you BYOO to starbucks, that’s hillarious!!!
    Have a killer week and you go chase those huge biceps sista!! That’s awesome!!

  10. Definitely love John Mayer, but haven’t been listening to him as much recently– in the mood to now! And ahhh so much pumpkin- I love/hate candy corn! That looks like such an awesome happy hour spot! So cool the travel channel was filming there too!

  11. BYOO! thats so funny and good to know about starbucks! (i also happen to find their oatmeal quite good, but this is certainly more economical). Also the veggie bag ice is my jam. Looks like a fun weekend!
