Friday Favorites Week 25

Happy Friday and welcome to Valentine’s Day weekend! If you have something planned – big and romantic or just relaxing at home, I hope you have a great time!

If you’re new to My Urban Family – welcome! Each Friday I round up my favorites from the past week – videos, photos, stories, products – anything really as well as updates from my life. Let’s dive in!

Bernie Sandwiches?

This may be cheesy, but it cracked me up – especially how long he is able to go with it.

Renting Van Gogh’s Bedroom

Van Gogh www.myurbanfamily.com

The Art Institute of Chicago recreated Van Gogh’s Bedroom in an apartment in Chicago. The room, as well as the rest of the apartment, is available through Airbnb for $10 a night. Unfortunately the first set of nights is already sold out, but more should be announced soon. You can read more about this HERE. I’m going to be keeping an eye out to see if I can snag a night!

Sushi Go!

Sushi Go myurbanfamilyI’ve been playing this game a lot lately and it’s so fun! It’s super simple to teach but changes enough so adults can enjoy it over and over as well.

The Amazon description explains the game: In this fast-playing card game, the goal is to grab the best combination of sushi dishes as they whiz by.

It’s about $10 and definitely worth picking up. You can grab it from Amazon HERE.

  1. Wow that’s so cool that you can rent that room for the night–I bet it will be tough to get before other people snatch it!

  2. I LOVE that photo of Chicago! Absolutely beautiful!

  3. Oh my goodness, I saw the Bernie Sandwich thing (I watch Colbert religiously) and was dying. Haha! First, the fact that he accidentally called Bernie, “Bernie Sandwich”, and then—like you said—Colbert kept it going! I was like man…it would have taken me a really long time to come up with that, much less in one day. 🙂

  4. That OK Go video is unbelievable, isn’t it? Also apparently Colbert lives up the street from me! Sadly I haven’t bumped into him around town, but I’m hoping to–he’s incredible 🙂

    How cool re: Van Gogh room!

  5. Oh wow Colbert is SO funny. Of course you couldn’t have better comedy fodder than those candidates! Van Gogh’s room is cool! I hope you snag a night or 2!

  6. What a beautiful shot of Chi-Town! Wonderful!
    How neat they recreated via Gogh’s bedroom – I’d love to spend a night there!
    have a fab weekend xxx

  7. Ha! The Van Gogh’s bedroom is awesome! That is one of my favorite paintings.

  8. Thanks for sharing that OK GO video! I was obsessed with them in HS, and had no idea they were back, more or less! Have a great weekend and Happy Valentine’s Day, Alexandra!!

    • Thanks Morgan, hope you had a great Valentine’s Day! And I always seem to kind of forget about them until they come out with another amazing video!

  9. That picture is awesome! Congrats again on the Huffpost! Too cool about Van Gogh’s bedroom. If you snag it, let me know, and I’ll drive down to check it out 😉

  10. Love all your picks this week!! The Bernie Sandwich had me cracking up too… the Van Gogh room looks amazing… and the OK Go video is fantastic! That must have been SO much fun to shoot…!

  11. Haha I love the Bernie sandwich! I just bought my step mom a year membership to the art institute so she’s going to go.

  12. That is SO cool you can stay in The recreation of Van Gogh’s room.

    As usual, you know I love your Chicago pictures you curate.

    Have a great (warm!!) weekend. I’m hunkering down tomorrow. With the windchill, it’s supposed to feel like -30 Celsius!!! 😉 xo

    • We had such a chilly weekend as well but it’s looking like this upcoming one should be pretty nice! Hope yours is as well!

  13. What a fun list! The Van Gogh bedroom would be amazing to stay in. I’m definitely checking out the game. Have a wonderful weekend!

  14. So want to stay in that room now. So special and memorable!!

  15. I want to spend a night in that room.. so cool

  16. That sushi game makes me think of a fun conveyor-belt sushi eatery in London (my favorite city). Thanks for linking up with us at #FridayFrivolity and I hope you join us again next week!

    • London and Chicago are always competing in my heart for the place of “favorite city”. I love London so much!
