Happy Monday lovelies! I hope you spent your weekend being productive, relaxing, and spending time with the ones you love.
For those who missed it, I turned 24 last week (Tuesday, to be exact)! I spent the entire week celebrating, starting with Worcester VegFest and ending with a night out with my girls. I can hands down say that this was the best birthday ever! Thank you to everyone for your well wishes and for coming out and celebrating with me.
Last Sunday (April 15) was the Worcester VegFest. Think great food, great company, and an absolutely awesome photographer.
I met T. Colin Campbell, bought some awesome gear, saw old friends, made new ones, and ran into this other (awesome) girl named Kaitlyn who also lives in Worcester. The beau enjoyed every second and there was lively conversation all around. I, admittedly, was a bad food blogger and have no pictures but will happily fill you in on my newly discovered obsessions.
I have a confession to make: I think Daiya tastes like plastic. These Shreds on the other hand…to-die-for. You can bet I’ll be doing a giveaway with those soon! I’ve sent e-mails to all my local natural grocers (and by local I mean those local to me currently in MA, those soon-to-be-local to me in CT, and those kinda-soon-to-be-local to me in Baltimore). They are the closest thing to real cheese that I have ever tried and I am so excited to make Averie’s Mango Basil Personal-Sized Tortilla Pizzas. Especially since this guy was one of my bday gifts:
My love for Theo runs so obviously deeply that they asked me to be the rep at the CT VegFest this upcoming weekend. Unfortunately, I’m a busy Passion Diva and have not one but two parties to do. <–Like that’s a bad thing?! Plus there’s that pesky little thing called moving. Ugh. Anyway this is new bar and it was outstanding! Nice and dark with a little saltiness to calm even the most angry/tearful/frustrated/etc/etc/etc PMS-er.
Ok so I admit: these kind of suck. They don’t do a good job of grabbing on to things but at the end of the day I’m still happy I invested in them. Its an easy and cute solution to remaining sustainable while eating on the go. And it comes with chop sticks. Need I say more?
Monday was Patriot’s Day aka Marathon Monday aka a day off. <–I’m going to miss this random MA holiday! It also happened to be warm (hot?) and sunny and perfect. I relaxed and cooked and started packing and went to yoga and thoroughly enjoyed myself.
