Happy Birthday to Me!

I had such a great birthday this year! I got up and out of the house early and headed over to Starbucks and got my favorite latte (decaf, soy, cinnamon dolce). While they were making my coffee I was chatting with the barista about getting an early start to the day, Christmas shopping, stuff like that, and I mentioned that I was going to try to shop for myself because it was my birthday. He gave me my coffee for free! It was totally unexpected, and was such a nice start to the day.

Then I got to the mall at about 9:30 and it was pouring rain. Of course I didn't bring an umbrella. You'd think I would know better living in this town! So I drove around the lot looking for a parking spot that was close to the entrance because it is hard to waddle quickly when you have a huge lump attached to your stomach. I wasn't looking forward to being drenched by the time I made it into the mall. And there, right beside the wheelchair parking, was a spot made especially for me.

I guess I must have made some good karma recently. Can't think of when though. I yelled at a rude customer at Starbucks last week and even called him an asshole to his face...the other patrons thanked me, but I was sure it would come back to haunt me. I guess he really deserved it, because the universe seems to have rewarded me for it! Thanks :)

Fish Sticks!

No, it's not really fish. I thought I would try something new, since I just mentioned the other day that this is something I've never attempted. And they were a total success, thanks to a recipe from my favorite vegan mom over at Vegan Lunch Box.

I guess it's more like a breaded tofu than actual fish , but so what. I loved it, and it went great with an organic salad that I threw together. Mmmm! I think the baby liked it too :)
