Wet Nose is a great little dog boutique hidden inbetween restaurants in Geneva Commons. It caters to a more upscale crowd with tiaras and jewel encrusted dog dishes. They have the funniest slogans and sense of humor. There are lots of items for your favorite foofy dog. Some of it is outrageously expensive but like the previous reviewer said, its a great place to spoil a dog.
PROS: very unique
My mom actually dragged me into here because she has 2 dogs. I was really impressed with their selection and offerings. They have lots of dog related items other than just treats. The owners are very happy to assist you and offer some treats to visiting dogs. They have some very unique treats and is a great place to find a gift for your favorite dog lover.

Our Easter dinner's are never complete without a Easter Lamb cake from the Lilac Bakery. They make the most delicious cakes and fruit tarts. They have wonderful pastries and breads on a daily basis. It's an old school bakery that sticks with what is known to be good. They are consistantly good and they provide services to local businesses often.
This elementary school is an awesome addition to the U-46 family. They have been open for about 14 years and offer a wide array of afterschool activities. They house a SWAS (School within a school) gifted program. The teachers are all very dedicated and work well together. The PTO is very supportive and the families are wonderful. They offer Market Day and a few other fundraisers throughout the year.
This is a wonderful elementary school in Bartlett that is simply overcrowded. There is a ton of new homes going up and U-46 recently changed their boundaries. The school has mobiles outside and has lost it art & music rooms due to excessive classes. There are plans for an addition but it could be a few years off. The school is full of great kids, staff and families but is just stuffed!
PROS: great neighborhood school
