happy 2012!

Happy 2012, everyone! I hope you guys have had a wonderful few weeks. Have you made your New Year’s resolutions yet? When I think about resolutions I feel kind of, I don’t know…meh. Imagine me shrugging and looking kind of bored, that’s how I feel about resolutions.

 

I don’t make annual resolutions, I just I try to do the same thing every single day. I spend the entire day reminding myself of all the things I have to be grateful for, no matter how small. Then I get up and do it all again the next day. It sounds so simple, yet it brings a lot of joy and peace into my life.

I’m grateful for this guy, that’s for sure.

He recently turned four years old, but he’ll always be the baby of the family (even though Court Kitty is only half his age)

I had a lot of fun over the holidays. I turned 32 and ate almost all of these caramels all by myself.

Guess what else happened on my birthday! My Teal Cat arrived!

An awesome kitty for an even more awesome cause!

A week after I turned older, Moose and I spent a few days in Kentucky. We went to a slumber party. We played in a dart tournament.

This is my last place trophy. Moose’s trophy says something about “first place” or whatever on it, I can’t remember. Whatever. It’s not important.

I got to know this pup a little better.

His name is also Moose. It can be confusing.

We shared lots of hugs and laughs with family. I’m pretty sure my little cousins are sick of me now, but hopefully they’ll get over that by late spring when we roll back into town.

While on the road from the airport to my hometown, I discovered Alternative Baking Company Cookies.

And ever since I first noticed then, I’ve been spotting them everywhere!

I feel like all vegans worldwide have been in on this secret and I am late to the party

So now I’m going to make up for it by eating every cookie in sight!

On New Year’s Day we got to snuggle these precious gals

(PS – I’m a brunette now!)

Earlier this week I was feeling kind of crappy so Moose agreed to do a wheatgrass shot with me.

Superfood!

Finally, I’m crazy ecstatic to tell you that my blueberry donut recipe photo

made it on to The Post Punk Kitchen 100 list by way of #74 Donut Pan.

Isa Chandra Moskowitz is my vegan Oprah, people! I can’t believe that I’m even on her radar! *insert happy bouncy dance here*

Go check out the list, even if you have no interest in donuts or donut pans. There are marshmallows! And pickles! And much, much more!

I hope to be back here soon to share some new eats with you. I’ve really missed you all so much. Thank you for stopping by and here’s to a beautiful 2012!

I’m going to go do one of my favorite Friday night activities – watch hockey. Can you believe that the regular NHL season is already halfway over? What’s that? You don’t care? Oh, right. I love you anyway.

  1. Oh I love the Teal Cat project, thank you for sharing! Your holiday sounds like it was wonderful! Congrats on your delicious donuts making the top 100 on Post Punk Kitchen:-) I love happy dances, so definitely I will do one for you! Happy New Year! Hugs, Terra

  2. Eartipped kitty!

    I’ve had those cookies and while they’re better than Boston Cookies, I’m not in love with them.

    Do you like those caramels? I’ve wanted to order them but am unsure if they are as delicious as I’m imagining?

    • I looooove the caramels. I could eat the vanilla ones every day and I can’t believe how much the carrot cake ones taste like carrot cake. It’s like magic.
