You Only Live Once, This Is How I'm Doing It!

Chicago Auto Show: Pregnant Style

If you are like me before I’d gone to the auto show you probably can’t understand how miles of cars for hours could be interesting. I mean, that’s basically rush hour, right?

Except it’s so much fun. I’ll let the pictures convince you.

We’re the nerdiest rockers. Or the rockingest nerds…

Photobooth!

Joel’s shirt seems extra appropriate in this picture.

Trek meets DC. (p.s. I wish I would have gotten a picture of the actual Superman car because it was ridiculously awesome. I was too distracted with making Joel do cheesy poses. Oops.)

all the cars

I have no idea why sitting in cars is so much fun. But it is!

Joel being super classy. Ahem.

Remember my dilemma about whether or not I should rent a wheelchair? Yeah, I didn’t get one. It just felt too silly, especially with a bunch of 80 something year olds walking around just fine (mostly in the Cadillac and Lexus areas. What?). We just went at an easy pace, I wore ugly gym shoes and I sat down. A lot.

Loungin’ like a boss.

A lot of my sitting was in cars. Although the getting in and out with my giant belly wasn’t always the easiest.

My only complaint was I couldn’t do my favorite event at the auto show, the Jeep off road simulation track.

“Not recommended for women who are pregnant.” Annoying.

It was such a great time, as it is every year, even if I couldn’t ride in a Jeep going over a couple bumps at five miles an hour. Not bitter. Nope.

Seriously though, I’m not a car type of girl necessarily but the auto show is always a blast. I can’t wait to take our 11 month old little guy next year.

  1. loved the pictures! i kinda (just kinda) miss being pregnant 🙂 but not when i think about the awesome things we tried to do during the summer and i was always feeling too heavy to enjoy myself.
    first pregnancy?

    • There are parts of this pregnancy I’m sure I will miss. I think I’ll enjoy being a mom a lot more than being pregnant though. This will be my first baby 🙂

  2. We went to the Detroit auto show when we lived in Michigan. I was skeptical at first but it was a lot of fun. And I agree that sitting in all the cars is so much fun and I didn’t really know why. haha. Glad you had a great time.
    (Oh and I love the Trekkie shirt!!! My husband is a Trekkie as well. Just got him Star Trek burp cloths so he can rock out burping our little guy!)

  4. This looks like so much fun, I would never have thought of going to this kind of show before – obviously I’ve been missing out!

    • Yeah it really is a lot of fun. Like I said, the first year I didn’t think I’d enjoy it that much but I liked it so much it’s become a yearly tradition. Definitely go if you get the chance.
