Our Sunshine Award Nomination!

2 May

It’s embarrassing to admit, yet it’s been nearly a month since sammysfood nominated us for the Sunshine Award on her awesome blog, “An Ode to Mung Beans”.  We are incredibly grateful for the recognition and wish to apologize for not showing more graciousness sooner!

If you have yet to come across her blog, you will be pleased to see that she is worth following with a bunch of delicious recipes to try and great info to absorb!  Go check her out!


To keep it fun and interesting, we’ve chosen to answer some of her questions while creating some different ones.

To my nominees… I enjoy your blogs and hope that this gives you an opportunity for others to find you as well.  Be sure to include this link in your blog, answer the following questions and nominate 10 fellow bloggers and links to their blogs in your award acceptance post.  Be sure to let each of them know about your nomination by linking them to you to your page.

  1.  What is a favorite quote of yours?  “I love it when people underestimate me because they are giving me the opportunity to blow them out of the water!”
  2. What are you on Facebook and Twitter?  Try it Vegan on Facebook and Twitter  🙂  Also if you are on Pinterest, we are there as well!
  3. What is your favorite time of day?  Late at night, in the wee hours of the morning while all are asleep!
  4. What is your favorite holiday?  Actually, Christmas Eve is my personal favorite (partly because it is our daughter’s birthday but also, ) because of the anticipation and preparation of creating some magic for the kids.  It’s something I look forward to all year, no matter how big they are!
  5. What is your favorite non-alcoholic beverage?  Fresh lemonade!
  6. What is your passion in life?  To enhance other people’s lives.  To encourage them to generate interests and act upon them to better themselves.  To recharge other people’s batteries when they are low and help lift them to feel good about themselves and their accomplishments!
  7. Name a vacation location that you have been to that would be a great recommendation for others?  Cyprus!  Agia Napa in particular!
  8. Do you have a unique way of eating a food that isn’t common?  We love sliced cucumbers on our sandwiches and can surely enjoy some cold Vegan pizza for breakfast!
  9. How did your blog come about?  We wanted to have an outlet to share different lessons and foods with others who are curious about a Vegan diet and wanted to offer some assistance with what can be, a clumsy transition when you first start out!
  10. What is one thing that you want to learn about to improve your blog and would welcome suggestions?  Photography!  We need help and tips and look forward to improving that immediately!  It’s a weakness of ours currently, we are aware.

We have many favorites however since we are limited to 10, be sure to check each of these bloggers out!!

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to create a really good article… but
    what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never manage to get
    anything done.
