Sick Day + Birthday Weekend

Hi there!

Baby Sage has an ear infection.  Poor guy!  I really wasn't feeling well last Friday and I almost took a sick day, but I'm glad I didn't because I needed (and wanted!) to take one today to be with my boy.  He fell asleep as I was picking up his prescription, so I wrote this post while sitting in the coffee shop of the grocery store letting him sleep in his carseat.

On a happier note, I had a wonderful 28th birthday over the weekend. Because I was under the weather, we canceled the festivities and had a low-key day, just the three of us, and that was just what I needed.  And of course there was lots of delicious vegan eats.

On my birthday I got a roasted veggie melt with the best marinated tofu I've ever had. And that cupcake...heaven.  All from my favorite vegan cafe.  I also cooked and baked up a storm over the long weekend: banana flax pancakes (recipe coming soon!), jerk sloppy joe (made with seitan), cheddary broccoli soup (used white miso for the first time), PB cupcakes, and a penne bake (with a macadamia nut ricotta and a cashew cream).  Yeah, my refrigerator is full of vegan yums.  Also, there was a few trips to Starbucks.  Sage takes beautifully long naps in the car so my husband and I took the opportunity (or two) to go to the Starbucks drive-thru and then take the scenic route home so Sage could sleep.

Praying for a quick recovery for Sage.  I have to say though, he is so happy for not feeling well.  Totally impressive.

Parents:  Did your little one ever get an ear infection?

Try any new recipes lately?


  1. Your vegan meal looks delicious, I hope your little one is feeling better today!

  2. 28?! You don't look a day over 24 ;)

    That stinks about the ear infections. I hope it doesn't turn into a chronic thing. I was the kid with an ear infection every couple months until I was 2. Ugh!
