Family Fun at Pheasant Run!

No doubt about it, my family needed a weekend away. Something close to Chicago, but defiantly out of the city. We were offered a complimentary night at Pheasant Run Resort, just outside of St Charles, and it was EXACTLY what we needed. I feel at this point, I need to mention I grew up on a farm. Hay rides were a staple of my childhood. Some of my FONDEST memories are from hay rack rides in the country. I couldn't have been more thrilled with the hay ride at Pheasant Run!
Have you ever seen a hay ride decked out like this? You know you want to take a ride!
Pheasant Run was ready with blankets for the cool night and it was PERFECTION. Halfway through the golf course journey, we stopped for hot cider and a show.
I may or may not have joined in the fun. #TotallyDid The next morning, my kids were in the pool. My kids simply can't resist an indoor/outdoor pool.
There is nothing I love more than chilling poolside while my kids splash about.
If they had their way, they'd still be there. Then, we were able to enjoy farm life at Primrose Farms. They have activities like hands on milking, egg gathering, and horse grooming. Which you can book through the front desk.
My son was ALL OVER the chickens.
I had my doubts on whether or not he'd be able to pet one, but he was patient and kind and he did get to pet chickens.
I don't know anyone who can resist baby goats. They are just THE cutest!
If my Maggie had her way, this big guy would be on our patio right now. This is PURE love. Unfortunately he did not fit in the car;)

You can't finish a weekend away without a visit to the spa. While we didn't have time to enjoy a massage or facial, we were able to enjoy the aromatherapy workshop and Maggie was able to take home a body mist that she mixed herself. I would love to go back and enjoy Girlfriends Spa Getaway package, or one of their massages.
I am not a golfer, but I couldn't help but notice they have an amazing 18-Hole Championship Golf Course.

We also enjoyed Jambalaya Restaurant, The Terrace Cafe and Bourbon Street. Their dining options are endless.
We packed quite a bit into our weekend away, and my kids are already asking when we can go back. That's a win in my book! If you're interested in learning more about Pheasant Run, find them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Stranger Things 2 = Halloween Goodness! #StreamTeam

Ever since the kids and I found out Stranger Things Season 2 was coming out October 27, my kids and I have been planning. We're a Halloween family! The kids plan their route, pick their costumes and hit the streets. How fun is Maggie's Dino costume?! (*As a member of the Stream Team, I do receive free Netflix, BUT all opinions are my own.)
When they're through, I look forward to sitting down to a Chicago deep dish pizza while the kids do some candy trading. THIS year ... we'll be binging Stranger Things Season 2, candy trading and eating deep dish pizza. Ima call that Halloween perfection!
If you haven't seen Stranger Things yet,there’s still time to binge it before Stranger Things 2 launches Oct. 27! I also have a sweet giveaway going on in my IG. Enter to win 3 months of free Netflix for you and a friend!
Talk Halloween with me. What are your kids being? What do you look forward to on Halloween night? Are you as excited for Stranger Things 2 as me?!

I'm Shrinking

I don't know when it happened, but I'm convinced I'm shrinking.
THIS, is my current favorite outfit. The shoes are a Steve Madden wedge that make me a pinch taller. The leggins are from Alo Yoga, smooth as BUTTER. The vest ... Wait. For. It. Cat & Jack from Target Kids. It's happened friends. Maggie and I wear the same size. Dunno when it happened, but it's here.

P.S. How do I fit into the girls line at Target? #TravelSize
