It is so sweet to be a Chicago Cubs fan!

I get excited when two things I love meet up. Fannie May is the official chocolate for the Chicago Cubs! It makes being a fan so sweet!

Here are some sweet morsels about Fannie May:

  •  Fannie May started in 1920
  •   During WWII when other candy companies decided to change their ingredients, Fannie May did not. They closed early instead of sacrificing their quality.
  • The Pixie which is their best seller was invented in 1946
  • Fannie May makes over 100 different confections and continues to develop new and innovative flavor profiles for their customers.
  •  Fannie May’s standards of excellence include maintaining our product’s high quality by requiring special handling during storage and display.

Since I dropped those morsels for you. I wanted to let you know what your options are when ordering these wonderful confections. You can create your own mix with whatever your heart desires in them, or you can purchase ready made tins with some favorites! Want to be the talk of the party?

I suggest the Chicago Cubs tin.

You can find under the occasions tab, then select Chicago Cubs tin. It has five of the Fannie May favorites. It is3.9 lbs of chocolate bliss. Your friends will thank you and the host can keep the tin, you just made your gift a twofer(you are welcome). If you’re thinking that’s too much chocolate (ha who really says that?!) why not try a the Mint Meltaways Wrigley Tin. It has 10.75 oz of minty bliss!

Are you the host of the party and want to give an awesome thank you gift? Put a Cubbies bar in their goody bag!

Want to send a little something sweet to a Cubs fan? I’d recommend the Wrigley Field Mix! It has Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Buckeyes, Milk Chocolate Hot Fudge Truffles, Dark Chocolate Toasted Marshmallow, and Milk Chocolate Caramel Presents.

I know I gave you a lot to choose from, but honestly you cannot go wrong with Fannie May. What a fun way to celebrate Fannie May and the Chicago Cubs.

That is definitely worth flying the “W”!

Meet #33 from the Chicago Bears

I was recently invited to Macy’s semi-annual men’s fashion event with a special guest appearance by Chicago Bears Running back Jeremy Langford.


Guests experienced models showing off the latest fashion trends. Keeping the energy up there was a DJ spinning top 40 songs.


If you needed a break from shopping, there was a virtual reality oculus Google game. It allowed guests to step into their football field or rollercoaster in a virtual experience.


Guests could stop by the Michale Kors Men’s Shop where they could enter and win a Michael Kors shopping spree. There was also a chance to win custom shoes by The Sole Revival. The first 150 guests who spent $35 or more had the chance to have a meet and greet with Jeremy Langford. There he took time to answer questions and receive and autograph.

I had the opportunity to ask Jeremy a couple questions.


Tanya Abbey: “How do you separate being Jeremy Langford Chicago Bears running back, to Jeremy Langford who works for the Chicago Bears?”

Jeremy Langford: “Matt Forte taught me that, you should never take anything for granted and that no matter where you are, you are always representing the Chicago Bears and that you should always show your best. You are a brand yourself and you need to put your best foot forward.”

TA: “How do you find time to wind down and stay humble, you are on a huge stage where everyone pays attention and wants to get your attention at all times. How do you wind down and turn off the public figure and become a private citizen?”

JL: “I stay grounded by keeping my family and friends close, they keep me humble and they don’t let me get away with anything.”

Jeremy also added that he understood that his time in the spotlight is short lived and enjoys every minute of it, because he knows once it is gone he will miss it. The few minutes I got to spend with him, proves just that. He isn’t just a running back. He is a very down to earth person, and is very welcoming and personable. He really enjoys being a Chicago Bear and we enjoy having him represent us on the field.
