  • Mini Rice Cooker – My son doesn’t like most veggies or potatoes, so when I am serving a side which he most likely will not eat, I make him a serving of rice instaed becuase he is a growing teenager and needs some carbs.

  • Vitamix Blender– I use our Vitamix all the time!

  • Vitamix Personal Cup & Adapter - The Vitamix Personal Cup & Adapter has been a new favorite find as I now eat breakfast using this every single day.

  • Instant Pot – My Instant Pot has been a life saver of those super, crazy busy days when I have to get three kiddos to three different locations at almost the same time.

  • Spiral Slicer – I have this Spiral Slicer and I love it! My daughters love it! This one is great at making zoodles of noodles) out of just about any veggie you can think of.

Trench Coat - This Trench Coat is the new replacemetn and almost exact same one I have had for over a decade. I needed a new one as my prior one had seen better days.

Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans - These mid-rise skinny jeans are my new favorite. I bought two pairs and adore them so much!

I really like flowy round neck tops right now and ones that are a bit longer as well. This gray embroidered top is so pretty.

I also wear dresses as shirts these days and love all A-line dresses especially. This green dress is perfect with my new favorite jeans and Black Suede Boots.

One thing everyone needs in the Midwest is a long fringe sweater. I really adore one that wrap you up snug from the wind here in Chicago. I also really like sweaters that have a thumb hole because my hands are always super cold. And everyone needs a long, black cardigan.

I purchased these shoes in black and in cognac, Black Wenda Booties and Cognac Wenda Booties because I adore them so much. They are so comfortable and they go perfect with ripped boyfriend jeans (which these I also love because they are so afforadable).

I have a few pairs of boots that are heavy rotation these days.

Gray MicroSuede Boots - These are my go to with heavier socks and when black or brown just dont’ quite match.

Favorite Black Boots - I love these and just slip these on most days, whenmy daughter hasn’t put them on first.

Favorite Black Suede Boots - I love these black boots almost as much as the above. These give me a bit more height and look at bit more polished than the leather boots.

For years and years, I used to carry the Tory Burch Ella Nylon Tote. I love it. I still love it, but it was looking tired. I searched and searched and really could not ever locate a new handbag that I loved as much as the Tory Burch Tote. I did purchase this Street Level reversible leather Tote, because a friend recommened it, but I didn’t like it as there was not a side pocket on the inside. I really need an side pocket on the inside of a handbag for easy access to my inhaler. I finally located this Madewell Canvas Tote, but I have it in Camo Canvas. I love it. I’m not sure how long I will carry this Madwell Tote becuase I really think it is just a fall tote. But for now it works great.
