I been dreaming of cooler days and lazy reading days drinking hot drinks since mid-July! It’s August 26th and it is 90 outside, cruel joke Chicago! Summer definitely came late this year and I am not in the mood for it. I am over the heat, I need cooler temperatures. Tomorrow is my birthday I was wishing for a perfectly cloudy day with 70 degree weather but that’s not going to happen, we are supposed to have a sunny day with 90+ degree weather!
Summer I am so over you, please go now!
I love food more specifically I love burgers all types of burgers: beef, chicken, turkey, vegan, I really don’t discriminate when it comes to burgers, I love them all. That is why I am beyond excited to go to the Roscoe Village Burger Fest! The Fest is taking place today and tomorrow 11am -10pm, if you are in Chicago I suggest you take your happy little butt over there. Some of my favorite joints will be there, for a complete listing go here.
Over the weekend we participated in The Color Run, the happiest 5k on earth. We had so much fun, we are thinking of doing it again next year.
^This was before the race started, we look so clean and our shirts were so white, this didn’t last long^
Approximately 16,000 were registered for the race.
One of the many color stations.
Next year, we need to wear bandanas to keep the powder from entering our mouths. It’s a tasteless powder but too much of it makes it difficult to breathe and see.
It was definitely the happiest 5k ever. There were no set rules, you could’ve walked or run. How fast you finished was not the focus, it was about having a good time and we definitely enjoyed ourselves. Towards the end of the race we were definitely sweating rainbows.
Until the next color run
This is happening tomorrow and I am so excited! It’s suppose to be 80 and sunny :) I’m picking up my packet today, I’m hoping I can find a tutu!

Summers in the city are my favorite. Chicago is the best in the summer, there’s always so much to do from the multiple BBQ fest around town to Fireworks at Navy Pier to Classical Music at Millennium Park, Chicago knows how to entertain! I cannot wait to head over to Millennium park with some Chinese and some wine and listen to some classical music and watch some fireworks.
