A couple of days ago I figured out that I have grown up. I had very conflicting feelings about this. Should I be happy or sad? What should I wear? How show I spend my weekends now? So I decided to be more responsible with my life, have a healthy lifestyle, and be a better person. Sounds good right?
My first goal as a “grown up” is to continuing maturing as a person! Chicago has so many amazing museums and cultural activities and events to see and participate in! I’m a regular visitor at the Art Institute of Chicago and have been one for over 4 years. Each time I discover new galleries and exhibitions, but every time I go, I always start with the Modern Art Gallery, which holds such a great collection. It could seem very predictable that my favorite painter is Salvador Dali, and his painting “A Chemist Lifting with Extreme Precaution the Cuticle of a Grand Piano, 1936″ charms me again and again.
It’s spring now! A Beautiful time to decide to start a new life or “grow up” and start getting out of your comfort zone. My next step will be about healthy choices, and on my next post I will tell you more about my workout routine and nutrition.
Sometimes it’s hard to decide or know what type of food to bring to a party. Thanks we have Pinterest! The scratching-your-head day is gone. I couldn’t be more happier to have found this recipe from one genious lifestyle blogger. Of course, it involves alcohol. You can’t go wrong for bringing alcohol to a party. Well, it’s not a party if it doesn’t involve alcohol. Right?! But you don’t want your friends to be wasted either. This recipe is perfect. Just a little of bubbly. Just a little of romantic. Just a little of prettiness. And not to mention, it’s A LOT of DELICIOUSNESS!! Bring it to your NYE party and your friends will be shocked. Happy New Year!
