Spending Thanksgiving In Chicago

Sean and I went to Chicago for Thanksgiving again this year and it seems like it’ll become our tradition. Not only were we excited to see his friends and family but we were also so excited for the food in Chicago. If you don’t know, we are vegan and Chicago has so many yummy options for vegans!

Picked Up Our Toyota Corolla iM

I feel like I’m getting ahead of myself so let me start by when we first got there. We arrived on November 21 and we got this great Toyota Corolla iM. We drove a bunch on this trip and it definitely helped us on gas! As soon as we got in the car, we hooked up our phones via bluetooth so we could listen to our music. Anybody remember when you had a cassette that you would connect to your phone? Ah, technology these days! After we got the car, we decided to head to the hotel and relax for a bit before heading out for the day.

Eating All The Food

We ate at some many places while we were out there. I definitely thought I would have gained weight but I didn’t! I’m so mad at myself for not taking more pictures but by the time we got the food, I just wanted to eat it. If you are ever in the Chicago area, check out some of our favorite restaurants: Quesadilla, Ground Control, Chicago Diner, Vegan Plate, Area Bhavan, and Kitchen 17 (pictures are from Kitchen 17).

Telling Our Family We’re Pregnant!

We decided to announce to our families during the Thanksgiving holiday. Since we were in Chicago, we told his family in person. I told my family via phone calls and texts. Everyone is so excited for us! We can’t believe that the next time we go to Chicago, that we will be a family of 3!

Overall, we had a wonderful time. It was hard to come back but we were so excited to pick up our fur babies and cuddle with them.

  • We tried the tortellini from @kitehillfoods last night and it was amazing! I was not vegan growing up and it reminded me of the tortellini I ate growing up. Being vegan doesn’t mean you eat salads all day, just means you aren’t harming animals because I’m definitely a carb and junk food vegan! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • In honor of Valentine’s Day yesterday and also our 34 month anniversary, I wanted to share our story. My husband and I met on AOL when I was 11 and he was 13... that was 19 years ago!! He lived in Chicago and I lived in California. We talked online all the time. Eventually we even talked on the phone. Of course, it was just friendly but we always remained in contact. There’d be some times where we would go without talking. He had relationships and so did I. When my mom was in the hospital in August of 2015, he was just there for me in a way I didn’t know I needed. In 2016, we just started talking more and more and decided that it was time to meet. In April, he flew out to visit me in California. We haven’t been apart for more than a week since then. He’s my best friend. He is the perfect partner. Always there for me. Always makes me laugh. I hope everyone has or finds a partner like him 💖

  • When I decided to go vegan, I didn’t just eat a plant based diet... it became my lifestyle. Therefore it was important to me to make sure I used makeup that was cruelty free and vegan. One thing that was hard for me to find a good replacement for was the chapstick I used prior to going vegan. I tried so many but couldn’t find a great one. Then I came across @hurrawbalm and that’s what I’ve been using for almost 3 years now! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Today is my mom’s birthday. She would’ve been 64. She passed away in 2015 and didn’t get to see me get married or meet her grandson but I know she would be proud of me. I miss her with all of my heart and wish she could’ve met my husband and son but I see my mom in Lucas and it’s nice to see a little piece of her. Happy birthday Mom 🎂🧁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
