Vegan Mofo Day 10 Tada!

Yes there was snow just the other day..
While I THOUGHT I had uploaded a wonderful picture of the zucchini bread I made from the ppk website, I cant find it! But you can only have so many posts with out great pictures. This is the girls having their tea party!
My trip to Chicago went pretty great! Aside from the fact that pretty much I only had the food I brought to eat. Now, I did get to try four types of Lara bars (OH WOW) but thats becuase everyone noticed I didnt get much for breakfast, and I was saving the last of my food for lunch.
So my last day I ate three out of four. I dont want to think about the calories!!!
While most of you are ending your MOFO postings, I just want to say.. I am still going to keep going until I reach 20 posts about delicious vegan food. And once I figure out what the copy right laws are, I will be more willing to post the actual recipe if I get it out of a book. But the Zucchini bread from PPK can be found on the site. (I hope to learn how to LINK things.. soon, very soon....) and the loads of pictures I hope to put on here will be arriving shortly. Meanwhile this is a survey taken from Miss Marie...

1. What is your idea of perfect happiness?

When the family is all together, I especially like camping or staying in hotel rooms on a fun destination, but just getting to enjoy a break is nice.. the most important part being that we are together. My husband adds security, the children add fun.. and I bring lots of love!!

2. What is your greatest fear?

Being in a situation I am not prepared for.. feeling like I have no voice, being left alone. 

3. What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?

I realize that they call me princess because of the princess and the pea, but in my case its cause I am so hard to make happy sometimes... and others think I am SO positive all the time!!! (meaning.. if the only KNEW) 

4. What is the trait you most deplore in others?

I like the phrase.. anger makes your ears fall off. Some people just wont listen, or open up, or see a new point of view... even though its okay to not agree on all things. 

5. Which living person do you most admire?

I guess my kids. They amaze me everyday, so giving and loving (and yes they fight with each other) But I am so proud of the people they are becoming..   

6. What is your greatest extravagance?

Pampered Chef products.. and the "special" food I have to buy (says hubby)

7. What is your current state of mind?

is what I am doing going to make a difference.. and how long will that take?

8. What do you consider the most overrated virtue?

Balance... because I think enthusiasm WINS!! ha ha ha ha

9. On what occasion do you lie?

To protect the innocent, like my kid asking me about Santa.. though, I do tell her the REAL Santa died a long time ago but people dress up to remember him and his good deeds.. and thats because she saw a Santa go on break and smoke a cig..  

10. What do you most dislike about your appearance?

Well, I wish that my body would show just how much I really do work out and that vegans are healthy.. but I guess in time my body will... Unless I keep reading Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World

11. Which living person(s) do you most despise?

Well, there are a few people (or many) that have done things to make life hard for women, children, animals... But I am working on my thoughts and despising people isnt really something I want to hang on too.

12. What is the quality you most like in a man?

Someone that is at the right place at the right time. Someone that is Prepared and able to step up to the crises or task at hand. Not super human abilities, but I guess lots of courage! 

13. What is the quality you most like in a woman?


14. Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

I am realizing I always say "alright" before I say goodbye??? 

15. What or who is the greatest love of your life?

Jerami. I really am the luckiest girl in the world. And the two kids we have only increase the love.. 

16. When and where were you happiest?

You know, I really had a great time at Disney this last trip. But in general, when my kids are whining "we want you" and its time for bed. It makes me feel so loved and needed, they want me to sing to them till they fall asleep. 

17. Which talent would you most like to have?

Well, I would like one of the necklaces that Hermione had... becuase it would be a real talent to control time. And though you think laundry and house work would be my goal, the truth is I would do so many things.. learn to knit.. take my kids to the Denver zoo (not just the one closer to us) I would learn other languages, and learn to sew my kids halloween costumes.. I would go back in time and become Vegan WAYYYYY sooner.. and I would find a way to bring people closer that I miss so much..
But hey we can only control the time we HAVE. 

18. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I would give myself more confidence and stick-to-itness, and I would give my right arm to be ambidextrous.. ha ha ha ha

19. What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Getting out of bed everyday and meeting the day head on and arriving for life with out the regret of medicating myself to slip out of hard times, or hurting others by my choices, and leading by example of what life can be like. Not that my life is perfect, but that I make the choice to live in my life and dont let the choices make me stuck in A life. 

20. If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing, what would it be?

I would come back as me.. but only if I could have full knowledge of the life I left behind and what I can do to give myself the things I missed as a child. 

21. Where would you most like to live?

Romania, Austria, Richmond Va, or Lake Placid New York, and maybe Oregon for a while too!

22. What is your most treasured possession?

my wedding dress.

23. What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?

Those still wandering and lost and hurting, who need to find their way into the halls. Those living in the life of a recipe for destruction.

Daycare worker, oh and my job with the pampered chef. Its just that I LOVE kiddos! 

25. What is your most marked characteristic?

My singing. I guess 

26. What do you most value in your friends?

Friends that have been there when it gets ugly or things seem the hardest to still offer love and search for hope until its found. To love with out judgement.
