Hometown: Right outside Chicago, but I lived in New York City for five years and sometimes just call that home. :)
I ♥: Tofu scrambles, baking biscuits, pastry tips, Diet Coke, the tattoos on my feet, Instagramming, exploring new cities, vintage cookbooks, Scrubs, and SpongeBob
I Hate: Loud talkers—I mean, like, yelling when you're right next to them. EEEPS!
Fave Music: So much, so much! Jack's Mannequin, Something Corporate, Gaslight Anthem, City and Colour, Rilo Kiley, Alkaline Trio, Anthony Green, Beyonce, Brand New, Drake, Copeland (R.I.P), Death Cab For Cutie, Jason Mraz, Beyonce, La Dispute, Lucero, Ryan Adams, and Beyonce … again
Fave Books: The Velveteen Rabbit
TV Faves: Scrubs, SpongeBob, Chopped, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, and Real Housewives of Atlanta
Favorite Food: All breakfast foods (tofu scramble, biscuits, and gravy!), mac 'n' "cheese," mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and sweet potatoes. I really like food and cooking and baking. :)
Why I Went Vegan: I've never been too fond of eating meat, but I always failed at attempts to go completely vegetarian. After a few years of feeling uncomfortable with what was on my plate, I finally decided not to let the status quo dictate what I was eating and nixed the animal products entirely! I started with meat and was already drinking nondairy milk, so after a few weeks of being held back by cheese, I decided to try rice cheese and went fully vegan. :)
My Companion Animals: I have three amazing doggies that I obsess over and play with all day. Jack, Oscar and Benjamin are their names and I just can't get enough of them!
