Hey everyone! First of all, thank you all so much for the birthday wishes! You are all so sweet and kind and I really appreciated all of the well wishes I had a really amazing day and I am very fortunate to have a really amazing family that helped me celebrate and feel special. I’m also really blessed to know all of you. One of my biggest goals with blogging was to get to know really amazing people that share common interests and I feel like I’ve accomplished that goal and I feel really lucky to have been welcomed into this community, so thank you all!
I mentioned a few weeks ago that I signed up for Lindsay at Running With Tongs’ Fourth Annual RWT Care Package Swap. I was paired with Brigid over at Vegging Out. It was such a great surprise and great timing on her part (although I’m not sure if she knew ha!) because I got her package the day before my birthday! It was so fun to get it and it kind of felt like an extension of my birthday
Brigid included a cute little card and a recipe for a super yummy sounding dill dressing! I have to say it’s pretty brilliant to include the recipe and I may have to steal that idea in the future :X So cute and the recipe sounds great!
Included in my package was organic ginger aid tea (that will definitely help with my nausea and digestion!), some garbanzo bean flour (Soccas anyone?!), plantain chips (LOVE these), Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter (YES!!!!) and some stone ground mustard. I’d be lying if I said I haven’t already dug into the plantain chips. I love these things, they have a hint of salt and are savory and delicious. I can’t wait to try the chocolate hazelnut butter too, it sounds delicious!
I had such a great time putting together Brigid’s package, when she posts about it I’ll make sure to link you to it These swaps are so fun! Thank you so much for the treats Brigid!!
So it has been a few days since I’ve posted and I have a few things that I’ve collected to show you so here are some miscellaneous things from the past few days
I was able to see my friend from Massachusetts the other night and as I mentioned we celebrated both of our birthdays We were born exactly two weeks apart which is so fun. And another fun fact, my best friend that I’m visiting in Florida was born exactly 5 days after me so I’ll be with him to celebrate his birthday! Yay! Anyway, I decided to make her cupcakes and figured some classic chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting (both recipes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World) and rainbow sprinkles would be a good call Here they are all packed up and ready to go!
I had to show you this because I thought that they were so cute and amazing and so absolutely perfect for me. A friend of mine gave me this wall hanging that says “Do Something Amazing Every Day” and a really cute “Fight Like A Girl” tumbler. I love the art because it resembles something I pinned on Pinterest (you can see it here) and I am putting it directly across from my bed so it is the first thing I see every day when I wake up. And the tumbler is just so perfect! I’m sipping from it right now actually!
In case you didn’t think I was already a spoiled brat, I wanted to show you this stuff too because again, it is so indicative of my style and who I am as a person. My friend from Massachusetts gave me this adorable and thoughtful gift including a super cute mug and mug cozy (aaaahhhh so awesome!!), some delicious smelling vegan pumpkin spice soap, a gorgeous owl necklace and she packed it all up in the super cute skull and crossbones tote! That is definitely going to be my new farmer’s market bag! Thanks M!!
So I guess that’s everything exciting from the past few days! I hope that you all had a great weekend and that your Monday went well! Two more work days until Florida! Yay!!
