1. Last Wednesday I stopped by Chelsa’s to watch the last Stanley Cup game. Blackhawks won! And we ate turkey sloppy joes and Blackhawks cookies.

3. When I taste the deliciousness of strawberry lemonade I question what I ever saw in Coke.

4. Last night I went to get dinner with Mat. I am pretty sure my sangria was made with a can of fruit salad medley. And by “pretty sure” I mean “positive.”

5. Last Thursday I met with Heather and Alyssa for dinner at Frasca. I had linguine and a cookie and a Sangria that was made with real fruit.

6. Is this the show about the french fries or the one that’s not about a chicken?

7. Why does everyone on home buying shows hate having the washer/dryer in the kitchen? I love mine.

8. I have 55 Euros in my drawer.

9. Last week there was dollar Jimmy Johns day in Chicago. I waited in line to order for about 15 minutes, but then my sandwich was ready before I finished paying. I don’t think the competitive eaters will ever win against them.

10. Other than some frozen ravioli I haven’t cooked in over a week. I need to get on that.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
