One Lovely Blog Award

I was nominated by VeganMonologue!
I'm completely honored and flattered by the nomination! Thank you so much for the kind words, VeganMonologue!

7 Facts about me:
  1.  In my daily life, I curse like a sailor. Except at work. There, I am the perfect angel.
  2.  I'm obsessed with my pup, Marley. She's the greatest being to ever grace this galaxy.
  3.  I have a master's degree, and I'm not afraid to use it!
  4.  I'm fantastically lazy sometimes. But when I'm feeling motivated, you best just stay out of my way.
  5. I started my dream job in March, and I couldn't possibly be happier about it! I never dread going to work.
  6. No one has heard me sing since about 1992. I know I suck, but I just can't help myself when I'm alone. I belt out the tunes like there's no tomorrow.
  7. I own more shoes that I know what to do with. I need an intervention.
 My nominations:

Nicole Leigh / Veggie Panda: She is my foodie soulmate. Her foods and photos are amazing. I'd consider her my twitter girlfriend. You need to make her asparagus pizza. It'll blow your mind.

The Tolerant Vegan: Her photos are beautiful. Her foods are fantastic. And she is overall, super friendly and generally awesome. You need to check out her Mac & Cheese Pizza! OMG.

JL Goes Vegan: JL is such an incredible person. Her food is spectacular. She focuses on health and eating well (which I need to do a lot more of) and inspired me to try, and subsequently love KALE.

Vegan ESP: Run by 2 awesome vegans, they post all sorts of food reviews and recipes. They rock hard. They show everyone that vegans don't eat just twigs and leaves.

VeganVille: Gigi is such a sweetheart, and a long-time visitor to my blog. And she's silly and has a stellar vegan baked goods Etsy store! I'm dying to try her minty chocolate whoopee pies.

Czech Vegan (in America): Elisabeth cooks up some excellent food, with lots of czech classics made vegan. She's super cool and is a blogger at VeganYANerds, a teen lit blog.

  1. Awww, thank you so much Meg, uhm Snarky. I am silly. and quite frankly I needed to be awarded *something* today. I am bringing some recovering shoesters over for an intervention. You rock! Can't wait to check out the other fantastic winners.

    1. Hey Miss GiGi! I'm so glad to make your day a little happier! And, when exactly is the shoester intervention? I must attend!

  2. You are the bestest. <3 <3! VEGAN FOODIE SOUL MATES FOR LIFE! :D

    1. I <3 you! Now, let's eat some good food!!

  3. You're a librarian?! I'm doing my MLIS as we speak, hope to be a children's librarian : )

    1. Yup! I'm a public librarian. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It's not for everyone, but it's the perfect career for me. It can drain the Life out of you some days, but most days I'm so thankful for the opportunity to share the love of books and learning with my patrons. Good luck to you with your MLIS! My only real tip is to truly have your patrons in mind when you do collection development. It makes a world of difference in your circ rates and your patrons' satisfaction. I know it seems obvious, but a lot o librarians order what they want, not necessarily what the patrons want. So, anyway, good luck! I hope you have tremendous success and feel happy every day.

  4. Hey you, so nice of you to include me! YOU are my go-to for awesome recipes so this makes me especially proud. Thank you! xo

    1. WHAT?!? Awesome! Now I'm super proud, too! You rule, JL. And, you've converted me to a hardcore kale junky. For that, I am eternally grateful.

  5. Also, I'll be putting up a post/my nominations shortly. :)

  6. Thank you so much! I am honored!
