Hey, Live Like You Are Rich readers! Kristin from Ro*Tel here. I am excited to be writing for Anita today! Let me tell you a little about myself… I live in the Windy City, a.k.a. Chicago, with my Bichon Frise, Joey. When you live in a city full of hustle and bustle, you can never get bored! Over the weekends I try to make it out to our different museums, a local show at a dive bar or a new restaurant. In between whipping up new recipes in the kitchen for friends and family, you can find me jogging on Lake Shore Drive or binge-watching Netflix on the couch with a bowl of popcorn.
Nothing says spring like a baseball game and a hotdog with all the fixin’s in hand. Last weekend I caught the Chicago Cubs vs. San Diego Padres game at Wrigley Field. While the sun was shining on our city, it was still a bit chilly watching from our rooftop seats! With the unpredictable weather, I think it’s safe to say I’ll wait until June before I catch another outdoor game. In the meantime, my friends and I plan to watch the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao boxing fight May 2nd.
Although I consider myself a lover, not a fighter, I don’t think this match should be missed! To prep for the most anticipated fight in recent boxing history, I’m making some yummy sports viewing party eats! I have an unbelievably easy nacho recipe packed with tomatoes, green onions and olives everyone can enjoy.
