Happy Friday, friends! I’m back! This week I give a life update about where I’ve been and many other favorites I’ve been saving to share with you!
If you’re new to My Urban Family, welcome! Each Friday I round up my favorites from the past week – videos, photos, stories, funny items, and products. Let’s dive in!
So I certainly didn’t mean to take a semi blog hiatus this summer but I will admit that it’s probably a good thing that I did. However, I’m happy to announce that I should have enough time to get back into the swing of things this fall, and that includes blogging again! I’ve missed my lovely readers and this space and look forward to interacting again!
So what have I been up to? Well mainly working and teaching tennis honestly. But also just taking time for soaking up the sun, getting my health back on track (a positive PCOS update coming soon!), reconnecting with family and friends I haven’t seen in awhile, and spending some down time figuring out just how I want to finish off my 20’s. 30 is approaching fast!
I’ll have some more posts soon that go into further details of those different areas, but to ease back in today I thought I’d start with a classic: Friday Favorites!
Toys – All of the Toys!
— My Urban Family (@MyUrbanFamily) October 26, 2017
This year I will be attending the USA’s largest toy and game fair at Navy Pier on November 18th and 19th and I can’t wait. I was fortunate enough to be invited to a preview night where I was able to meet amazing inventors and test out some of their products that will be showcased at the event. I have tickets to give away to lucky readers next week (and a discount code for you to attend if you don’t win) and more in depth details about why this is a must see if you have kids or are a kid at heart! So make sure if you’re in the Chicago area to stop back and enter!
There is something about the weather turning cooler that makes me want to eat all of the baked goods. If you live near Chicago and haven’t had Doughnut Vault, get your butt up early one day and get over there. They are SOOOO good. But they sell out fast. And a tip: the main location is TINY – I mean only about 2 people fit inside at once and that isn’t a joke. Make sure you’re paying attention when you start your doughnut hunt or you might miss it.
The Return of Takeshi’s Castle!
If you don’t know what Takeshi’s Castle is, don’t judge me too hard. It’s a very stupid show but oh so entertaining. The video pretty much explains it all.
If you’ve been following my blog at all, you know I love taking photos. But the downside of this seems to be there are NO photos of me that I like. So when I saw this image I burst out laughing. Too real.
Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts
I know the season of pumpkin spice is coming to an end but I’m obsessed with these limited edition pop tarts. They’re so good – and I may have stocked up on a few boxes before Christmas so that they will last me a little bit. If you still see them in the store still, grab a box!
Items this week are mostly about winter coming. I don’t know how this cold weather snuck up on me, but it did and now I’m all about warmth!
Each week I find myself adding products to my Amazon wish list – it’s getting slightly out of hand. But it’s still fun so I decided to make it a part of my weekly post so you can also see what I have my eye on. If you have something fun you’ve found I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
