I was recently asked by my mom to help her recommend some fun things to do in Chicago over the long weekend. Her friends were looking for some trendy neighborhoods to stay in, good restaurant recommendations, as well as some interesting Chicago activities for cold weather. I love this kind of stuff, and I take pride in knowing all the must-go places to check out in Chi city – so after I rattled off the world’s longest email to my mother I thought, why not do the same here on the blog for all of my Life’s A Beacham friends?
So without future ado, here is my Chicago weekend guide: perfect for three day weekends, romantic getaways, overnight business trips and more! All of the restaurants I’ve recommended are places to safely dine #glutenfree unless stated otherwise.
I’m sitting here, in my new apartment, surround by all the things I’d packed away a month ago.

I have a surprise for you! Continue Reading

I can blame it on hanger, but this mindset has proven me right all too often lately. So as I opened my Find Me GF App to see if there were any reviews, I was shockingly, and pleasantly surprised to find an announcement on the app for the very same sandwich. If the app was promoting it, I knew I had to put this infamous new sandwich to the test. So I threw on some pants and dragged a friend with me to checkout this sub, and see what it was all about! As promised on the Lifesabeacham instagram, I have made this into a Q&A style post, so take a look at the questions below to find out what I thought of the Jersey Mike’s Gluten-Free Sandwich!
