Mingle Monday Blog Hop!

After an amazing Colorado weekend, I am back!
I can't wait to tell you fun stories from my trip and hear all about your weekends! Who did anything fun? Any good stories to share?

Well firends, I will share my trip photos/stories with you later, but this week's question is a must answer! If you've been to Chicago I need your help! We leave for CHI on Thursday morning and I need advice!!!

{ Time to mingle! }


Pretty Pretty Please...

Pass on the Mingle love. Slip it in a post. Share with a friend. Anything.
As always, if you can find a special kind spot in your heart to want to spread the word, I would love that!

{ Thank you!! }

It's Monday, let's talk about those little bothersome things:

** What is a Chicago must/see/dine/experience?!**


** MINGLE FAIR -- all blog & runs (not commenting) will be removed. **


Now go get 'em tiger!


  1. I have only spent a couple hours in Chicago and that was at Hooters. I don't reccommend Hooters! LOL

  2. I've only been to the airport in Chicago, so I would say go see more than that ;)

    I went to Glitter and Dirt-she found a great greeting card, very funny! She also posted a version of the 'Keep Calm' signs that I hadn't seen before.

    I also checked out Kristin's kNook, where she shared a delicious chicken recipe.

    Both blogs were new to me!

  3. Sorry, never been to Chicago, so I have nothing :(

    Will come back later to visit some blogs.

  4. Go take some pictures at The Bean :)

  5. I've never made it past the Starbucks at the airport in Chicago. But have a great time!

  6. I've never been to Chicago, so can't really help you there. Hope you have a great time, though!

    I stopped by Babes & Sages first and she posted beautiful pictures of her and her family on their outdoor outing. Makes me jealous I live in Texas!

    I also stopped by Cheers, Bethani! She had a fun weekend as well, hanging out with some little ones and geocaching!

  7. As for Chicago - go to Gino's East - its sheer amazingness!

    I checked out Happy Girl and we are not twitter friends


    Glitter and Dirt!

    Woop! Happy Monday Ladies!

  8. seriously that card at glitter and dirt is hysterical! and i agree with her, would love to send it to someone just to watch them open it :)

    plus found out jessica is a nearby dfw neighbor.

  9. I've never been to Chicago, but I think that you're supposed to have a Chicago deep dish pizza while there.

    I stopped by Mom's Bookshelf and she put up some of her favorite 80s music videos. Glorious!

    I met a fellow Texan at A little bit of everything, who also loves to overplan. Became a new follower!

    I also met Adrian at Happy Girls are the Prettiest Girls, who is about to hit 100 followers! Awesome blog love.

    What a great Monday!

    -Sarah at [life of love]!

  10. Unfortunately (sob sob) I've never visited Chicago but its defnitly on my list.

    I visited Glitter and Firt and found a great card to say I love you! haha!

    I also visited Syn Delicious and saw her wonderful engagement picture.

  11. I have been to ChiTown a few times and a MUST DO is Gino's East for pizza!
    Be sure and take a sharpie to sign the wall!!
    And go to the bean and I also love Navy Pier!

  12. i've never been to chicago (tear) but i did just read a review of a great breakfast spot called yolk that will be a definite stop if/when i ever get to go there!

    i visited glitter and dirt and happy girl and noticed that both are almost at 100 followers ... and are now both one closer because i loved both blogs immediately and couldn't help following.

    also visited life of monday and discovered the great "dear monday" blog hop she's participating in.

  13. I visited Moms Bookshelf-I love her post to Santa!

    I visited Happy Girls are the Pretties. First off, I noticed her color scheme and LOVED it! And she has great taste in blogs and music!

    I also visited Bowling Adventures! I loved her "Dear Monday" post!

  14. YAH! im excited youre visiting chicago! the weather is suppose to warm up this weekend too :) if youre looking for the traditional chicago experience get some giradonos deep dish pizza and go shopping on michigan ave (stop by state street too if michigan is too crazy). millennium park is pretty too :) and i LOVE the art institute. email me if you want any more tips! xo

  15. I have never been to Chicago. I hear so much about their pizza, so that is definitely something I'll need to check out when I do visit!

    I stopped by Stress Case who had a great post about how a weekend of babysitting calmed her"baby fever."

    I also visited Something! Who has a nice blog post up about her trip to London.

  16. I just got back from Chicago and had a blast. We had late night drinks at Hub 151 and they had a little butterscotch dessert and it was SO good. We didn't eat so I don't know how the food is but the atmosphere is great.

    I also love Red Head Piano Bar and Ed Debevics. And drinks at Navy Pier are a must!

    Have a blast!

  17. I'm not much help because I don't remember the name or location of where we ate, but I know it was the BEST breakfast ever with lots of omelet options. Oh, and Grand Lux Cafe is always amazing!

    I stopped at nesheaholic, who has a drool-worthy post on fall tall boots. I need to go shopping. Now.

    Mom's Bookshelf has a super fun post on awesome 80s music! Complete with videos :)

    simple little joy has a few someecards posted - they always make me laugh and she's picked some great ones!

  18. Hi Meg...Chi Town changes SO much...good pizza, good beer - good walking! You can't go wrong - ever!

    will visit some tomorrow ---love the blog hop...
    xoxo from Trinidad

  19. Unfortunately I've never been to Chicago, but I hope to go some day!

    I visited today - she's got a really cool ABC's of fall going!

  20. I stopped by tri-ingtobeathleti. I loved the pictures she used for her blog. It was a fun read. Then I cruised on over to versatileedgyworld. Her pictures made you feel like you were actually on the vacation with her.
    Some good reads. As for Chicago. I've never been so I've got no clue. :)

  21. Ahh Chicago! Lived there for fours year during college and loved every bit of it! Navy Pier, The Bean, Michigan Ave, Giradano's Pizza, Ed Debevic's, John Hancock. I could seriously so go on and on and on! Enjoy your trip.

  22. Caaaan't wait to find other blogs!

    Q: Chicago...
    A: I've never been!!! But I can't wait to read other peoples recommendations!

    Happy Monday!!!
    XO Lucy

  23. Hi Meg! Welcome back from Colorado, and good luck planning your Chicago adventure. Sorry I can't help with that one :)

    I visited So.Cal Chic and loved all of her outfit posts! It's nice to find other California bloggers, we are definitely in the minority in the bloggy world!
