Ringing in the new year.

Hellooooo 2010!

I can’t believe that 2010 has finally arrived, it seems like I have been waiting for it to arrive for ages. This year is going to bring so many new and exciting changes. I’ll be graduating, starting college, planning my future. So much of it is still unknown and that is so exciting… yet scary at the same time!

 A couple of my new years goals… 

  • practice more yoga – at least twice a week
  • get more inventive and creative with my recipes (sometimes i just eat the same things out of habit)
  • take one mini risk each week
  • read more literature

 Now some of my best things from 2009… 

My Best Song    

Lady Gaga is so wonderfully weird. I love her crazy sense of style and her boldness to challenge the stereotypical hollywood beliefs.

My Best Fashion Staple    


I love cardigans layered over anything. You can make them dressy or casual and are always appropriate.

 My Best Read     


The book that started it all. Without it I don’t know if I ever would have had that final push which encouraged me to go vegan. It was the best decision that I ever made.   

My Best Meal    

Mediterranean Panini from the FIC

Ahh the Flaming Ice Cube. my new favorite vegan restaurant. I’m so lucky to have this place near by that makes delicious and affordable vegan food. If I could I would send each one of you a panini… it just might change your life 😉 

My Best Creation    

Chia Pudding

Hmm this was a tough one! Between my SP&NB soup and my Spiced Carrot Puree I couldn’t decide. But in the end my Maple-Chia-AB pudding won. I love this stuff!    

 My Best Food Find    

Larabars. Enough said.

Larabars. Hands down the most tasty and delicious snack around. And since they are made of only good for you ingredients its like eating a super healthy candy bar!    

My Best Discovery   


Before I went vegan I was so unsure of myself, and I never believed in myself. Now I know I can do whatever I set my mind to and have the confidence to speak my mind. I know that just by living my life day-to-day I am making a difference – and that makes me smile. 🙂

 My Best Decision    

Blogging has given me so much. Not only have I made new incredible friends, but I am always astounded by the news things I learn daily from each and every one of you. I am so grateful to be part of such a great community of people.  

Happy new year everyone!

  4. Happy new year! Those are excellent goals, definitely something I’m sure you’ll accomplish.

    My resolutions are simple:
    1. Eat more greens and veggies (I’ve been heavier on the fruit lately).
    2. Reorganize the house after Christmas (the presents have kind of exploded in the house).
    3. Try to improve my sleep now that little lady is snoozing longer at night.
    4. Teach Hayden to drink breastmilk from a sippy cup, since she won’t take a bottle (for those times when I’m not around).

    By the way, I nominated you for the Happy 101 award. Check out my post today 🙂

  5. I love Lady Gaga too, she’s insane! Awesomely insane.

    Your list of bests is really great.. I love blogging too. Then again, I guess anyone who blogs must love it, at least a little. 😀

    Some of my new years goals are:

    1) Read more!
    2) Run a half marathon. 😮
    3) Create a scrapbook
