I got up bright and early (much like the sun) and went to my sewing class. I live in Chicago where the weather is fickle but apparently I’m stupid and looking out the window to see that it’s raining is far too much work for me. Luckily I was dressed mostly appropriately… I mixed patterns and I feel like such a rebel that I took a picture to share with you :).
I’m done with class every day by noon so that leaves me with gaping expanses of free time. I like having some down time but not this much. I’m starting to go a little crazy. I really need a job but no one seems to want me (I’ve applied EVERYWHERE) so I’m having to find other ways to occupy myself. I’ve been wanting to try out Sweet Mandy B’s ever since I read this fabulous post over at Much Love, Illy. So when I got out of class today, my friend Jason and I headed off to this lovely little cookie shop.
I got the molasses cookie (two of them…) and a confetti cookie. They are GIGANTIC!
Don’t worry, I only ate half of it and took the other two and a half home for later :). Their cupcakes looked fabulous as well but I decided I’ll have to go back another time to try them out. If you’re ever near DePaul (or in Chicago in general) I’d suggest trying out this sweet little place. SO GOOD!
They have all kinds of hot dogs (many made in-house) and are served in a variety of unique ways. I had already eaten a sandwich for lunch but I couldn’t resist grabbing a dog. It was DELICIOUS!
Eating is one of my favorite things to do in Chicago because there are so many fabulous places to discover. I’m going to start bringing you more reviews of the restaurants I experience here in my wonderful city. I’m also going to try harder to tag my posts because I’m really terrible about doing that.
