Eating my veggies

Decided to stop in my Favorite Marianos in Wheaton on this beautiful Saturday afternoon for a quick bite and to say hello to a few of my favorite employees. 

I’ve known Sean Hartman for awhile and by far he is one of the best managers I’ve ever met. Although we’ll miss him at Bloomingdale, it’s nice to have him back in Wheaton. 

As I was leaving I stopped over to try out this coconut water and I have to say that the Regular and Cherry coconut were absolutely amazing. Since I don’t drink pop or carbonated drinks and prefer natural ingredients this is the idea electrolyte water at only around $1.79 price point. Definitely recommend it for everyone, especially your kids!

Sammy’s Mexican Grill


And so it continues. My 2nd Visit to Sammys Mexican Grill. Friday night I Enjoyed a Mini Tequila Flight & Chef special: Roasted poblano soup. Mmm mmm. Over 13 spices, avo, and crema. Guess what I’ll be recreating this week?

Looking forward to hearing the live music sets on the weekend.

Great for date night, with the family or solo.

I love the Olive Muffaletta and hot giardiniera from The Pickle guy😎 

And I couldn’t resist stopping by the  Cocoa Bean Fine Desserts and Bakery booth for a few treats.

Oh sooo  delicious!

GF/ AF Expo Schaumburg

What a great turnout for the Gluten Free and Allergy Free Expo in Schaumburg today! I would have to say 90% of the people took advantage of the great deal on Groupon for $15 for 2 people for the entire weekend. I know I did! #gfafexpo


So here’s just a few of the vendors I sampled and enjoyed. I will post more tomorrow on day #2.
