Did I ever tell you we don't own a car? Yep, clap it up for this eco-savvy girl (Once upon a time I had a Prius too!)
We have seamlessly gone from a two car family in Cape Town to a zero car family in Chicago. Our solution? ZipCar.
Saturday we booked a zip car all day and whizzed around the city running errands. After breakfast, of course...
We were looking for a new place to try in Bucktown on our way to Costco and Yelp lead up to Toast Two. We shared some pancakes and a breakfast burrito and loved the cute neighborhood feel of the place. The tables are super close to each other, and the staff was so nice. I don't know what is up with their French Toast, but everyone seemed to be ordering it and it looks NOTHING like French Toast.
Next Stop. Costco.
It was a stupid decision to go to Costco the day before the Superbowl. Everyone in Chicago was there and had approximately 7 children. Our loot? TP, Chicken, Organic greens, cinnamon, advil, Fage, strawberries, popchips, oversized picture frames (impulse purchase), and the best BEST flowers.
Other errands included Road Runner Sports and Crate & Barrel...I have my priorities.
Sunday started off with snow, 8 miles, donuts, and finally picking up our friends and packing them in the back seat.
This is our favorite pizza in the city (I will do a full review soon, Jordan did a review HERE when she visited).
See that vase? Crate & Barrel. Obsessed! It reminded me of a pineapple and I had to grab two.
I made a mini batch of funfetti dip based on this recipe. I have been wanting to make it forever, but I needed to make it for an event where I would have to act like a normal person and not take it to the face with a spoon. I have "a thing" for Cool Whip, but it is a chemical ladened sugar bomb, so it's a real treat.
Silly me also made a salad and a homemade basil dressing. I quickly learned that salad is blackballed on Superbowl Sunday. I'm not mad, more for me.
Kelsey taught me how to make homemade croutons and now I can't stop!
Yep. The girl who decorated for a Superbowl Party with white roses. Go Figure.
Favorite thing you ate on Superbowl Sunday?
Anyone else make the transition to being car-free? Do you love it? I hate driving and I hate pumping gas even more, so it's a dream come true.
