Birthday vibes

Hello 26!

Yesterday I celebrated my birthday.  The day got off to a slow start because I have been feeling sick for the last three days.  Body aches, sore throat, and stuffy nose — I didn’t let that stop me.

My parents surprised me with an early dinner at Cochon Volant, 100 W Monroe St. Chicago, IL.

Again my love for France from my trip continues.  The decor of this place reminds me of the French bars we would sit at and drink beer and coffee while staring at the Eiffel Tower!

Cochon Volant – Flying Pig in English has the cutest logo.  Helps if you do not know the translation at first.

We came during their lunch hours, so appetizers filled the menu.  We decided on the Warm Brie Plate and Croque Madame Eggrolls.  Looking back I realized I didn’t take photos to share… but it was because it was so good!  Once we got the dishes we dug in and although it was appealing to the eye my stomach was very pleased as well!

If you have been is there anything you would recommend from the dinner menu?  I am interested in going back soon!

Check please,

The check comes with a Cochon Volant postcard!  What a cute way to market yourself!

After we arrived home we played games on the deck as we enjoyed some refreshing beverages.  The weather today although hot on the day side was perfect for deck drinking.  It was a great way to kick off my vacation as well as celebrate my official adulthood.  I’m off my parents insurance (insert crying).

I will keep you updated on all the vacation fun to come!

Thanks to everyone reading and to everyone who made my birthday memorable!
