After a month of travel across the US we’re back on the west coast!
I wish I were still on the road, but I’m happy to be reunited with my little cat, Juniper. She stayed at the house while we were away and we had a good friend come over every day to take care of her and to hang out with her. She was so so happy to see us, but it kind of made me feel bad because she must have missed us so much from the way she’s been acting. She was glued to me the first few days back at home.
So what we’re we doing traveling for a month?
- We drove to Pennsylvania.
- We got married complete with a 100% vegan wedding and 100 cupcakes made by me!
- We drove to Chicago and honeymooned all the way to Los Angeles on old Route 66.
- We drove up California State Route 1 along the Pacific Ocean.
- We also saw some friends along the way and stopped at many many roadside attractions, oddities and museums.
Over the next few months I’m planning on posting photos from the trip and wedding. I want to do a post for each of the main attractions we saw along with photos from all over Route 66. I’m kind of excited to get back to blogging! I felt burned out by it a few months before the trip, but I think maybe I just needed a break from it.
Our friend, D.J., performed the wedding ceremony. The night before the wedding Eric and I went to a local amusement park in PA call Knoebels. Eight friends who were in town for the wedding went to Knoebels with us and we had such a fun night! My best friend Aaron and I went on a ride call the Tilt-A-Whirl with D.J. The ride tilts and whirls you around and around in a circle on an incline. As we were tilting and whirling around in the dark with bright lights flashing I declared that this was the best bachelorette party ever! Girls night!…three girls and seven guys.
Most of the food at the wedding was homemade aside from the veggie burgers. Eric and I took control of the grill and served our wedding guests. Now we want to buy a grill for our house! All I can think about are grilled veggie burgers, roasted corn and kabobs with pineapple on them!
This is such an awesome video!
A boy questions his mom about eating animals and then tells us why we shouldn’t eat them!
My favorite quotes from the video are…
“Fish are animals…octopus are animals…chicken are animals…cows are animals…pigs are animals.”
“I don’t like that they die…I like that they stay standing up.”
“These animals…you gotta take care of them..and not eat them!”
Son- “Why are you crying?”
Mom- “I’m not crying…I’m just touched by you.”
Son- “I’m doing something beautiful.”
OMG! You are doing something beautiful! And I like that they stay standing up too.

- A few weeks ago I started a blog with my friend Alexis! I live on the west coast of the United States and she lives on the east coast of Canada. Follow Sound to Shore for a look into the life of two gals living on opposite sides of a continent and opposite sides of a border!
One of the Best Things I’ve EVER consumed:
The Cubano from South in Leavenworth, Washington. Holiday rice, black beans, fried banana, avocado slices and lettuce in a flour tortilla served with cabbage salad, corn chips and a salsa bar! Tasty goodness for my mouth!
See you soon!
I managed to snap a few shots of some of the food I ate while in PA. In central PA, where I was staying, there aren’t many options for vegans/vegetarians if you want to go out to eat. Luckily there’s the college town of Lewisburg that has a cafe with two vegan lunch options. Cherry Alley Cafe used to have some amazing burritos! Vegan and all! I was really disappointed to find that they did away with awesome-burrito. They did have some vegan cookies though. I used to always get their iced chai tea with soy milk too. The barista there was actually kind enough to tell me that the chai mix isn’t vegan. Boo!! I’m assuming there’s dry milk in it. Make your own chai mix, Cherry Alley! Some spices and some grinding and BAM!…chai tea.
My mom did take me to a grocery store to stock up on some avocados, tofu and refried beans though! I usually live on bean burritos when I travel!
Remember my turtle lamp?

Last night we went out stepping! Joel, from Mystery Science Theater 3000, was in town giving a talk about how he got his start in television. I’ve seen him fours times now. I do love that man! His eyes are my favorite…mostly because they’re so sleepy.
We met up with some lovely new friends and had dinner at Bamboo Garden before the show. Eric and I haven’t been to an event with friends in quite a long time so it felt great to socialize!
