Transitioning back to real life after spending all last week with family has been difficult. I still have barely begun Christmas shopping (yay for Amazon Prime!) and our tree is still tucked away in our storage unit. Let's hope it gets put up before the week is over! Haha.
Potbelly, a sandwich shop from Chicago, opened in Nashville this fall and I finally went this week. I haven't been very strict on eating gluten and dairy-free as of late because sometimes it's worth splurging for a piece of home.
Onto the links!
Potato Kugel / / I love how in the ever changing world of blogging, Deb's site literally has not changed in years. Her space is not flashy but her recipes are spot on. These "lazy latkas" as Deb coins them, would be accomplished much easier if I had a box grater. I think I'll try anyway.
NYC On a Budget / / AirBnB for the win!
7 Things To Do This Holiday Season in Chicago / / I don't really miss the length of Chicago winters, but I miss Christmastime in Chicago. The fun activities can distract you from the cold if you choose to brave it and get out of the house!!
Stocking Stuffers / / Even better this list includes gifts under $10!
Brooklyn / / For the past several years my siblings and I have gone to see a movie Thanksgiving weekend. This year we opted out of Hunger Games and James Bond for Brooklyn. It's one of the best movies I've seen in a long while and I highly recommend you seek it out!
Here is a brief synopsis: "An Irish immigrant lands in 1950s Brooklyn, where she quickly falls into a new romance. When her past catches up with her, however, she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within."
Happy Weekend, all!
