Valentines Day Treat Under $10 ♡

Single or Taken this Valentine's Day? Why not treat yourself either way!
I woke up this morning to some snowy weather, which is great for me because I don't know about you guys but our weather has been anything but normal. I guess this global warming they've been talking about is coming true. Winter for us is snow from January-March and below 30 degrees. For the past few weeks it has been sunny and around 40-50 degrees (which I won't complain) but I miss the snow.
So this morning when I woke up I not only had an urge to stay home and cuddle but I had a bigger urge to make cupcakes! I went to the store picked up everything I needed all Under $9 :) I made about 24 cupcakes 
Chocolate and Confetti
Duncan Hines Confetti & Devil Food Cake- $0.94 / per box
Baking Cups- $1.47
Valentine Sprinkles- $1.88
Pillsbury Vanilla Frosting/Icing- $1.50

For Confetti Cupcakes you will need
1) 1/2 Cup of Water
2) 4 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
3) 2 Large Eggs
4) Frosting (Optional)
5) Sprinkles (Optional)
6) Cupcake Baking Pan (duh :) )

Travelers? I need help :)

So, after different ideas I'm excited that me and my best friend choose a place we can go soon while we save money for a Eurotrip in a year or two. Right now the place is Chicago :)
Now the last time I was there was probably in 8th grade and we went together actually for a choir trip so not much we could really do on our own. Now that we know the place I thought I would bring it here to ask any of my followers who have been to Chicago, what are the best places to go?

The good news is that we live in Michigan its about 4 or 5 hours away so no need to take a plane or anything but  It would help to know where the best spots are :)

Also I hope you ladies had a wonderful week. Just had and exam and have about two more next week so aside from this all I'm doing is studying!
