Party in the city when the heat is on, all night on the beach till the break of dawn. Tell me I just got that song stuck in your head like it is in mine now. It’s no secret, I love Miami. What’s not to love? Sun, culture, food, SUN. It’s the perfect flight from Chicago and you’re on the beach by lunchtime. Here is a list of my favorite spots right now:

Champagne Bar at Four Seasons Surfside

Gorgeous, classy setting where you can belly up to the beautiful green bar and feel like a movie star as you sip your champagne cocktail. (photo source)

Swan 

Located in the heart of the Design District, Swan is a delicious place where I find myself ordering the cheese pizza over and over again. Is it known for it’s cheese pizza? No. Do I order it because it’s good despite the fact I’m not 8? yes. It’s a beautiful atmosphere, fun people watching and mingling and it has delicious adult food other than cheese pizza. But seriously try the cheese pizza. (photo source)

Living Room at the Faena

The cast of character’s that attends this bar on any given night is Reality TV show worthy. If you’re into good cocktails and even better people watching this place is for you! I’ve never had a dull night at this spot. Last time I was there I met Harry from Real Housewives of New York. You know the one who was married to Aviva and then dated Ramona and Sonja? See? I told you! (photo source)

Kith

Ice cream with a selection of cereals is what makes this place so unique. I took my kids here no less than 10 times the last time we were in town. And we were only in town for 7 days. It’s so delicious and the serving size is big enough for you to be just find on ” bites” from your little ones.  My favorite is the Bam Bam! (photo source)

Mr Chow

Three words ; Mr. Chow Noodles. I don’t know what’s on them or why they are so good, but listen to me closely. Each child will need their own order. Is this a place for kids? Not really. But I’m not one to adhere to social standards. I like to eat well and I have kids. Hence I bring my kids. If you go earl enough it shan’t be a problem. (photo source)

Winter vacations are upon us as we are all craving some fun in the sun. One of my favorite things about going on a trip to the beach is finding the perfect suit to take along with me. I always like to bring a good mix of bikinis and one pieces because I never know how I am going to feel once I get there. Recently, I rounded up some great options for a family (or not) spring break trip to the beach. I’m particularly obsessed with the plunging leopard one piece, as you guys know I love me some cheetah print. The black options are always a good idea for the end of the trip after you’ve been indulging in margaritas and chips and salsa for a week. The bikini’s I chose are high waisted for an ultra flattering fit. I hope you enjoy my selections!

Q&A with my daughter, mother and daughter relationship, mother daughter interview, mommy and daughter photos, mom blogger, Chicago mom blogger, dope ass mom

This past week I sat down with Anna to ask her a few questions about what she thought about my job. As far as mom’s (and jobs) go, I am pretty non-traditional and I think it’s funny to hear her perspective. I’ve had this idea for awhile because anytime we talk she surprises me with her adult thinking. It was such a cute exercise and it’s something that we both really enjoyed. I had some questions in mind but as we were talking I changed some of them to do follow ups.  I recommend doing it with your kids because it was such a cute moment of connection for us. And yes, sometimes I yell. Needless to say, I will be doing more girl time and am definitely booking a hip hop class for us to take together! 

What are my best qualities?

You’re funny, you’re a good mom and you’re cool.

 

Why do you think I’m cool ? 

Because you always just like go with the flow and you just find your way.

 

What do you think I do for work?

You post instagram videos and instagram stuff and you get paid for it. And you’re a blogger!

Q&A with my daughter, mother and daughter relationship, mother daughter interview, mommy and daughter photos, mom blogger, Chicago mom blogger, dope ass mom

What do you think of my job?

It’s interesting because it’s not a traditional job, it’s like different.

 

What is your favorite thing to do with me? 

Take pictures and hang out.

 

What is one thing you would like to do with me? 

Go to Paris.

Q&A with my daughter, mother and daughter relationship, mother daughter interview, mommy and daughter photos, mom blogger, Chicago mom blogger, dope ass mom

What do you wish you could change about me? 

Sometimes you yell!

 

Do you like me blonde or redheaded?

Blonde, because it’s the original you and it’s not dye and it’s your original self!

 

What do you think is the best part about being a girl?

You’re not always as reckless as boys, you wear pretty stuff and you’re not as gross as boys.

Q&A with my daughter, mother and daughter relationship, mother daughter interview, mommy and daughter photos, mom blogger, Chicago mom blogger, dope ass mom

What is your first memory of me? 

Us cooking together and getting really messy.

 

What is your most favorite trip we took together? 

When we went to Aspen in 2014.

 

What do you wish we could do more of together?

Girl time, hip hop class.

 

How cute is she? I guess I’ll be taking a trip to Paris in the near future. I loved this idea for Anna and I can’t wait to do it with Max. I think I’ll make this a yearly tradition and record their answers in a book and give it to them when they go to college. I never finished their baby books so it’s the least I can do.
