I’m most excited to just meet him and start our little family. Excited for firsts – first cuddles, first kisses, first laugh, first words, first steps. Everyone says there’s no love like you love your child and I just can’t wait to experience that. Everyday I wonder what he’s going to look like, what his personality will be. I also can’t wait to see Kyle with the baby…I know he’s going to be a great daddy.
There’s so many great places this is going to be a long list! Brunch: Flo, Bongo Room. Kanela Breakfast Club, Little Goat. I know this is a chain but we went to Original Pancake House this weekend for the first time. I got the southwest skillet and we split blueberry pancakes – SO good! Lunch/dinner spots are Big & Littles, Tango Sur, GT Fish & Oyster, Topo Gigio, Yuzu Sushi, Homeslice, La Scarola. And of course Big Star…one of my favorite patios and margaritas in the city! I’m sure I’m missing some other goodies. My favorite area to shop is Bucktown – there’s local boutiques and name brand stores like Marc Jacobs, BCBG, Club Monaco and Intermix. It’s such a cute area! I usually end up going to the Magnificent Mile to shop since it’s walking distance from my apartment. There you can find just about everything but some of my favorites are Zara, Nordstrom, All Saints, and Neiman Marcus.
Best makeup trick?
I might be late to the party but I just learned the most flattering way to apply concealer is to draw a triangle with the base under your eye and point toward your cheek. It conceals dark circles and creates the illusion that your face is lifted. I need all the help I can get in this department! I use the MAC ‘pro longwear’ concealer but I’m thinking about trying the concealer Brooke uses by Make Up For Ever – it has great reviews!
