My Famous Day!

Yesterday morning, I was sitting down to eat breakfast, flipping through the newspaper... (I have a newspaper reading system wherein I make myself read all the front page sections first before I can read the fun sections and the FUNNIES! ) So, I was happy about arriving at the Wednesday Food & Wine section... when I opened the page to discover a picture of myself!! There was a sweet little article about this very blog! You can read the story here. All this was the work of my super cool Mom. Thanks Mom!

Next! Imagine my surprise when I got some comments from you, my gentle readers*, congratulating me on being in the paper before I had even blogged about it! I was totally confused, until I saw an email from Erik Marcus (aka "Speedy Gonzales") over at vegan.com, that he had already found out about the article and posted about it! He beat me to the punch! Vegan.com is a super great site, so I was pretty psyched to have my humble blog make an appearance there.

And, that's not all... I had one more wonderful surprise this morning when I sat down to do some morning surfing. I had two comments from Vicki and Melisser congratulating me on winning the Cafe VegNews contest! How fun! It's so fun to win something, especially from my all-time most favorite-ist magazine!! I can't wait to see what they send me... I'll be sure to blog about it.

* I love the way Miss Manners calls her readers "Gentle Readers." I suppose that makes me a dork, but so be it!

Oh, and that food photo? It's my breakfast of a big fantastic mango and a bowl of oatmeal with walnuts, dried wild blueberries, molasses, and a dash of agave nectar. That breakfast kept me going for hours!!

  7. Amey, congratulations! I brag about you all the time - I'm happy the Sentinel does now too! Beautiful photo too. My twins group had a little "Living Green" party last night so I brought some vegan cookies (made by Whole Foods, not me unfortunately). They were even better than the non-vegan ones. It made me think happy thoughts of you!

  8. Congratulations! I saw that article under the "vegan" section of my google news reader- that's right, I've set google news to bring me all articles about veganism from all around the world, imagine my delight in seeing that one of the articles was about you!

    Hi Amey,

    How exciting! Congrats on spreading the vegan love to even more people. That is so cool. And congrats on your Cafe VegNews contest! You had just written on my blog about how cool it would be win something and look at that, it manifested it such a cool way. Lots of love, Carey

  11. That is awesome!! Way to go; your blog rocks! I'm also a fan of the oatmeal with dried fruits and agave. It is a great, filling breakfast (although I recently decided to start giving smoothies a try even though I am wary about liquid meals.)

    Have a great weekend!

    hey I just found your blog. I'm going to be in Santa Cruz in late May. Where should I eat (i'm vegan)?? Where should I stay (for 3 days)?? Ok I'm going to read some of the blog to try to find the answers now. Thanks!
