Ay ay, welcome to the freakin’ weekend — baby we about to have some FUN.

Seriously I haven’t been this excited about Memorial Day weekend in quite some time. And the best part? We have NOTHING crazy planned. Maybe that’s why I’m looking forward to it so much. We’re going to hang around Chicago, enjoy some patio season weather, grill out, work on wedding stuff and just chill (with a lil Netflix of course).

Okay and I know this show isn’t on Netflix, but I desperately want to watch the Handmaid’s Tale. Oh and the new season of House of Cards come out on the 30th.

Hopefully the weekend brings warmer weather here in the Midwest. We went to Tuco & Blondie on Wednesday night and I had to wear both a jacket & hat. What’s up with this May weather?! Fingers crossed for sunshine & warmth soon.

This Saturday we actually have a little date night planned, which I’m stoked about. Twice a month, Tony and I plan a date night for each other — but here’s the kicker, we can’t tell either one what it is until we actually get there. This weekend is his turn. Wonder what my surprise will be. Hopefully not Oreo cookies and hot dogs, but you really never know with my fiance.


And I do have an incredibly exciting NEWS! Ambitious Kitchen hit 100,000 followers on INSTAGRAM. I’m proud to say that I’ve grown my following 100% organically over the past few years and I couldn’t be more proud to have you guys hanging out with my over on Insta. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. I wouldn’t have this blog if it weren’t for your love, support and readership. You guys are the BEST readers in the WORLD!

To thank you, I’m going to be giving away my favorite products over on Instagram over the next 10 days. Guys, we’ve got everything from RXBars to Under Armour Women gear AND SO MUCH MORE. You’re going to LOVE IT. Just as much as I love you
