Behold, The Unicorn Frappuccino

The kids and I walked down to Starbucks and FINALLY tried the mystical Unicorn Frappuccino. really does change color AND flavor as you drink. Make no mistake ... it packs a punch. That colorful dusting of sugar on top, makes a Warhead look tame. We are talking SOUR. That said, both my kiddos LOVED it.

One last warning...
There are some ODD side effects ;) Have you tried one?

THE Best Hot Dog In Chicago!

I am a fan of hot dogs. For the longest time, all I put on them was mustard. Guess what ... there's a lot more to put on a hot dog.

In 1993, two brothers took a road trip across the country and sampled hot dogs in every city. They've crafted their menu from the best of what they tasted. And let me tell you ... they tasted some VERY good hot dogs!

THIS is what I'm talking about!
I can't believe I almost forgot to try the mini corn dogs. How did I NOT know that was a thing?!
Don't worry if hot dogs aren't your thing, because we tried the burgers too. This is the roadhouse.
Needless to say, my daughter enjoyed every bite.
My husband enjoyed a Maxwell Street Polish hot dog. Which has green onions, mustard and sport peppers.
My son let me try the first bite of his Memphis hot dog. (BBQ Sauce, Pulled Pork, topped with cole slaw) #delish
He enjoyed the signature curly fries.
While everything we tasted was DELICIOUS, I am still a Chicago Dog girl. Seriously, what makes a Chicago hot dog so tasty?

My son wants to go back this weekend and try the Dallas dog. Check out their menu. Which would you try?

Key Lime Cove Fun...Soon to be Great Wolf Lodge!

I had NO plans for spring break. Nada. The kids were bummed. "We never go anywhere mom. (Insert big sad face here.)"

You know what, I can fix this. I looked up indoor water parks, and I picked Key Lime Cove. It's LITERALLY an hour drive north of Chicago. Easy Peasy. We had a ball. I've heard rumors next year it will reopen as Great Wolf Lodge. You can bet we'll be back!
From the jump we got that South Florida vibe.
We dumped our luggage in the room and I parked myself on a lounge chair and watched the kids float down the lazy river.
I LOVED that it was a perfect 84 degrees in the water park. We all could use the thaw.
There were TONS of ways for my kids to splash around and get wet.
AND yes, I went down the water slides. AND yes the Hurricane Vortex had me screaming my head off.
We spent three days at Key Lime Cove and you can bet we'll be back when they re-open. Good times had by all. Hope you got away for Spring Break too!
