This weekend I was able to take a weekend trip to Chicago. While I used to visit every summer, this was my first time in 4 years of going. My aunt lives there and I would visit until she decided we should branch out of her home. Our trips then turned to places like New York City, Galveston, TX, and soon to be Paris.
Even though my trip was only for the weekend, we were able to do a bunch of fun things reminiscent of the Windy City. Eating deep dish and taking the train were a few of the highlights. When searching good places to go, I came across a place called Molly’s Cupcakes. During season 1 of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, Molly’s won and I completely understand why. Between the 3 of us, we were able to split the Samoa cupcake, the Red Velvet cupcake, the Birthday Cake cupcake, the Smores cupcake, the Chocolate Peanut Butter cupcake, and the Caramel Butterscotch. My two favorites were the Chocolate Peanut Butter and the Samoa cupcakes. I definitely suggest Molly’s if you’re ever in the area.
Along with the good food finds, I was also able to get my hair dark for the fall. That not only was unexpected but it was also a surprise for my family upon returning home. I had always wanted to dye it but I wanted to wait until I donated it. After February I started really becoming interested in the idea of getting it done. In August I got it lightened to try something new which I absolutely loved. It was cool to try something I never thought of before. With chlorine and other things that mess with hair color, I decided to go darker for the fall and winter months before going light again for the spring. It is really cool to start to trust myself with decisions that I had always been so afraid to try.
Travelling is one of my favorite things because of the new experiences you can only have outside of your home. I’m really excited to share more of my adventures with you right here and on my social media. I’m really good with posting highlights on my instagram of all of my trips. Stay tuned next month for another one!
