Is it just me or do the weeks keep flying by faster and faster? This makes me nervous because it ultimately means winter is that much closer. NOOO!

Anyways, I’m not going to think about all that until at least September! Gotta soak in all the Chicago sunshine while we have it.

Now that we got the weather out of the way, let’s get into my 5 random things for the week…

ONE – While I’m not quite ready to think about winter yet, I am thinking about Fall TV! I can’t wait for This is Us and A Million Little Pieces to come back! I also can’t believe those are the only network shows I now watch live because I used to watch 5-6.

TWO – My BIL (Vishnu’s brother Niel) and his girlfriend Neelam are visiting this weekend! They haven’t seen Kaiden since early February so this should be fun. We’re renting a boat on Saturday and planning a beach trip for Sunday. Hopefully we make it to Nookies as well because I want Ernesto’s Chilaquiles. YUM!

THREE – So we put Kaiden down to sleep between 7:30-7:45. He doesn’t actually fall asleep until 8:30 ish. In that hour, he literally says every word/phrase he knows. It’s hilarious from the outside in! Free evening entertainment! I also think it’s a good time for him to process all that he’s learning and experiencing during the day. I’m currently reading How Toddlers Thrive, and it’s just insane how much growth and development happens in those little brains and bodies!

FOUR – Does anyone else order the same exact thing every time they go to a certain restaurant? Ema is one of those places for me. I always order the Mediterranean Chopped Salad with Falafel. It’s honestly one of the best salads I’ve ever had. Am I predictable? 100%. Am I happy after eating here? Also 100%.

FIVE – If you read one thing, make it this! I found this article via Hitha Palepu’s #5SmartReads and LOVED IT! Such a great and life changing perspective.

If you’re going to read one more thing, make it the blog Raptitude. I recently discovered it and can’t get enough. The writing style, the topics, the comments. It’s worth your time…I promise!

Ok, with that, happy weekend!
