Football Season

I finally made it back to Chicago after a long weekend in Minnesota for the Northwestern/University of Minnesota football game! I met up with a group of friends from college who now live in a number of different places including Iowa, Michigan, Illinois, Texas, and Florida. We had a great time and the weather was beautiful! I also made a stop at the Mall of America on Friday for some shopping! 🙂

Despite the game being at 11am in the morning, we all still found time to tailgate. After a turkey burger, some chips and salsa, and some festive Oktoberfest beer, I was ready for the game.

The game was a close one, but luckily Northwestern came out ahead in the end!

Minnesota was a blast, but after eating out all weekend, I’m glad to be back in my kitchen in Chicago! On the ride back home through Wisconsin, I saw some of the most beautiful trees with their leaves changing to vibrant yellow, orange, and red. This is one of my favorite things about autumn; among many of course:

  • Football
  • Sweaters and scarves
  • Apple picking
  • Pumpkin patches
  • Halloween candy
  • Parades
  • Squash
  • Pumpkin spice lattes

What is your favorite part about autumn?


  1. Isn’t that drive through MN & Northern WI SO beautiful! I drove it this weekend and was in awe!
    PS. Kind of mad that you beat my Gophers 🙁
