January is a poor time to restart your life in Chicago, primarily because it's too damn cold to want to do anything but bundle oneself up under covers and curse oneself for ever leaving sunny North Carolina.
May is better. May is the start of Chicago summer. And that means farmers markets, music festivals, walks along the lake, swimming, sunshine, flowers, puppies!, suger, spice, everything wonderful. With warmth comes new adventures, new birth, new...blah blah blah.
Who am I kidding. I'm restarting this blog so I can get an extra entry into the givaway competition at fantabulouslyfrugal.com, a saweeet blog about discounts that I found a few days ago while trolling the internet for cheap purses.
Any site that gives information on both sweet online shopping deals for cheap AND ways to get free chicken from KFC is a website after my own heart. But not only does fantabulouslyfrugal do that, the site is also having 31 Days of Giveaways -- everything from Indian literature (Interpreter of Maladies, what what!) to itunes gift certificates to super pretty delicate little Bumble Beadz scrabble tile necklaces.
And the scrabble necklace tile WILL BE MINE.
So yeah. Fantabulouslyfrugal.com. A seriously fantabulous blog. Check it out.
