Nothing like being in a foul mood during the holidays, especially when you are just trying to share the magic of Santa with your children. Well, it's the end of the year and I am flying by the seat of my pants.
Starbucks next to the Lake Theatre is closing today. It was the second Starbucks to open in the Chicagoland area (back in 1991) and has been a "go to" spot for many (even those who want to bring a coffee into the Lake Theatre are allowed to do so).
Ready or not Oak Park....Wright Plus is Saturday! Beware of gawking visitors who will be reading, writing, taking photos of our beloved 'hood! Let's show off our amazing village! Wright Plus is a definite BEST OF OAK PARK!
A FREE evening of healthy exchanges - WELLAPALOOZA! is coming to Oak Park! I'm proud to be a part of the Beye School community and additionally tickled that they have come up with a amazing event for everyone in Oak Park to take advantage of!
Oak Park now has a Bikram Yoga studio! Nancy Kalinowski opened her studio, 105 Yoga, in November. I finally decided to try it out and let's just say that there is no way to describe it - you have to JUST DO IT!
One of my many New Year's resolutions is to help the Village of Oak Park earn more money. How can this happen? Easy! Tickets - lots of tickets. Tickets for those who don't stop for a pedestrian in a walkway!
I love a good WOOP, and wow, my friend Sandi had a good one from last night! She is my first Guest blogger. Sandi Pedersen is also known as Wednesday Journal Inc.'s Online Editor and mother of four. She's my "go to" person when it comes to questions about school, classes, life etc. since her youngest and my oldest are in the same grade. I lean on Sandi for her humor, insight and craftiness. I am sure this is not the last you will hear from Sandi!
