Weekend ahead! There are plenty of fun events this weekend in the Chicago suburbs both indoors and out! Snow is expected this weekend, so verify the events are still going on before venturing out:

Iceland's Golden Circle



Iceland's Golden Circle

We are planning a return trip to Iceland this summer, so I am doing a little Iceland reminiscing from previous trips. On our first visit to Iceland, we explored Iceland's famed Golden Circle. The Golden Circle highlights a selection of stunning natural attractions. You can easily drive the Golden Circle or enjoy one of many tours.

Donut Drop in Schaumburg, Illinois: Fresh Baked Donuts With Intriguing Flavors

Fresh Baked Donuts With Intriguing Flavors at Donut Drop in Schaumburg, Illinois

Donut Drop: Fresh Baked Donuts With Intriguing Flavors 

Fresh and fun donuts with a mix of familiar, intriguing and curious flavors are baked locally every day at Donut Drop in Schaumburg. We first learned about Donut Drop after devouring a delicious donut we picked up at Brewpoint in Elmhurst. The barista at Brewpoint informed us that the donuts were baked locally. Fluffy and fresh donuts from a local small business are the perfect accompaniment for a locally roasted coffee. Since we live closer to Schaumburg than Elmhurst, we were thrilled to have the source of these magnificent baked creations so near to our home!

Museum of Science and Industry: Perfect Winter Day Exploring Science

The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago provides an engaging opportunity for science exploration which is perfect for a cold winter day! With so many hands-on exhibits and unique experiences, it can certainly take several days to thoroughly explore the museum. So, I can say that it definitely will keep your family intrigued and occupied while learning during a cold winter day. While the Museum of Science of Industry is a cornucopia of science learning year round, the museum serves as a welcome adventure during Chicago winters!

Degusta Box's December Goodies!


I am a little behind this month on my Degusta Box reveal. The good news is I think more of you will see this because you are not busy on holiday adventures! December's Degusta Box once again was a great mix including plenty of holiday treats. Degusta Boxes are actually one of my favorite treats for winter when it seems I am getting out a little less often. There is nothing like a box of surprises to put a smile on your face on a gray, wintery day! Here is a peek at last month's box:
