One of the wonderfully generous comedians that we work for dropped off a $50 gift card to the Tattered Cover as a Christmas present yesterday! I couldn't have been more thrilled - the Tattered Cover is a locally owned bookstore in Denver, and one of my favorite places to kill a few hours wandering around.
Today I stopped over there on my break (fighting the wind and big fat snowflakes), and picked up a new adorable journal designed by this amazing artist: http://www.curlygirldesign.com/ The image pictured is the one that I picked out - it says "I am fairly certain that given a cape and a nice tiara, I could save the world". I think that's a lovely personal motto, don't you?
I also got "How it All Vegan" - an awesome vegan cookbook that I've been wanting to check out for a while! Here is their website, just FYI: http://www.govegan.net/ Just flipping through it got me all excited to try out the recipes. They look really simple, and super fun to try. I was really relieved to see that the preparations are very brief, as my attention span for long instructions pairs in tandem with my attention span for reading a manual for... well anything. AND this works out great with my "Eat to Live" plan, as being vegan means no dairy or animal products (which I wanted to do anyways), and I can limit the salt & such. I'm so excited! Now I just need to get a good food processor.... guess who's birthday is coming up in March?
