Lately, life has felt cluttered with lists – to-do lists, bucket lists, client lists, goals lists, packing lists, grocery lists, shopping lists… even this “list” is an actual list. It’s never ending. Case in point – have you read our lake house criteria list? LISTS ARE EVERYWHERE. I’m starting to feel suffocated by them.
I hope your week has been wonderful! As with previous Friday Charades, I’m sharing a round-up of my favorite links to read along with the best items shop around the web. Wishing you a relaxing weekend ahead!
Have you read my recent “99 real estate problems” post! If not, I’d recommend reading it before diving into this blog post for more context!

Lately, several friends have asked if there’s been an exodus in Chicago. “Is it really true about what’s happening in Chicago?” “Is everyone really leaving? Simply put, yes – there’s been an Illinois exodus. However, Chicago itself has actually grown.
I hate going to the dentist. Like… palms sweaty, knees weak, mom’s spaghetti-type of hate (lol). Granted, that’s true of really any doctor appointment. But I digress…While my deep hatred of all things dental has been a deterrent in the past, I’ve wanted to straighten my teeth for some time. Therefore, I’ve chosen to invest in Invisalign (well, technically SmileCycle… but more on that later). Today, I wanted to dive into why I chose that method, the process and the best Invisalign treatment advice I’ve received to date.
