What Goes Up Must Come Down

Thank you all again so much for the birthday wishes! You are all so sweet :) I had a great day...however, I am glad that I had a mellow day because I could feel myself starting to get sick. And go figure, I wake up today and I'm feeling MAJORLY yucky. I don't know about you guys, but when I get sick it builds up over a day or 2 before I get full blown sick. Today I woke up with a little bit of a stuffy nose, some aching all over as well as a bit of a headache, some coughing and sneezing (just a little) and worst of all, this horrible pressure feeling in my chest. The pressure you feel when you are about to start having those horrible coughs that go way down into your chest. That worries me most.

I went to work but my boss sent me home after a few hours to rest because I am going to have a long day tomorrow. I have to be up at 4:30 am again for the wedding and will probably get home around 7:30 pm. I'm loading up on vitamin C and hopefully it won't be too bad when I wake up.

As a side effect of waking up sick, I'm had a major decrease in appetite.  I'll show you what I did eat.

For breakfast I ate a bunch of my Edible Arrangements fruit.  It was so good. I love the pineapple flowers :) I had intended to try my Kombucha today but it had taken me an hour to get all of the fruit down and I had no appetite left I decided not to chance it.

I didn't really want to eat anything all day. I drank a lot of water and green tea.  Then I knew that I had to eat something for dinner so...

I ate my leftovers from yesterday. Veggies and tofu in spicy sauce. Now I'm drinking a big glass of orange juice.

I haven't enjoyed a cookie today because I want to be able to taste it and enjoy it but some of you asked for the recipe that my mom used to make them. Ask and you shall receive :) Apparently she chose one off of vegweb!  Check it out here!

A definite silver lining in my day was coming home to find a package from Isobelle from vganjar! I participated in Lindsay's CVL Vegan Care Package Swap and was lucky enough to be paired up with Isobelle! Her package is amazing, so thoughtful and absolutely perfect for me and I can't wait to show you the goods! But you'll have to wait until tomorrow my dears :) I figured I'd save it for then since I won't have meals to show you because of my work day. Sit tight, it'll be so worth the wait!

Hope you all have a great night, I'm gonna snuggle up, drink orange juice and try and get some sleep!


  1. I guess the sick thing is going around. I hope you feel better soon though! (and I feel much better now, thank you!)

    I'm glad that the package came today for you, especially with you being sick.

    Those cookies look really good, by the way. I just might have to try that recipe.

  2. Eek! I can't wait to see what she got you!
    Feel better! Get lots of sleep!

  3. Oh, sweetie, feel better soon! You're the 2nd blogger I've read about today who's sick. There must be a cold spreading through the internets.

    When I get sick, I usually OD on vegan ice cream and brownies. I'm pretty sure I read about that treatment in a medical textbook. It works for me! :)

  4. Thanks everyone! I'm feeling worse today but at least now I can rest! The rest of my night will be spent in bed, watching some fights and drinking tea. Not too shabby.

  5. Wonder if you infected all the wedding guests. That would be a story.

  6. Ooo, swaps are always so fun. Get well soon!!!

  7. Shen - It would be quite the story but I was really careful to wash my hands every 5 minutes and not get too close to anyone. I was def laying low...I actually felt bad I was quite out of it and off my game...still got a few shots I love though! I'll probably share some later.

    Jenny - Thanks! I'm planning on staying in bed and getting rid of this today.
