FREE things to do around the holidays

It’s that time of year again and don’t you love it? I love to walk the Magnificent Mile in Chicago and look at the lights or take a trip to this house in Crete, IL (pictured above) that lights up the whole house. Last year hubby and I had a great time downtown one evening. I was heavily pregnated and he took us to get hot chocolate at Ghiradelli’s and then on a horse and carriage ride. Right as we set off it started snowing and so many passers-by were saying, “Oh, how cute! Isn’t she a lucky girl!!” Of course hubby gained major brownie points as I llllllloveeeeeeeee the snow and all things romantic!

This year I’m looking to list all the free/cheap things around Chicagoland/NWI this Christmas so please email all submissions to me ASAP at mummydeals at gmail dot com (take out the spaces!) and I’ll list at the beginning of December. Thanks!

    I think this is the house that my parents used to take me to see every year when I was a whole lot younger. Do you happen to have the address?? Is it off of Steger Road? I’d love to take a drive over there this year.
