Happy One-Year-Anneversary…to Me!

Hey friends!

As I was scanning through old posts, I remembered that November is when I started this blog. It had been six months after my “vegan experiment” (chronicled over at LizLivingVegan) and I decided to go back to vegetarianism.

What’s changed in a year:

My photography slightly improved.

Old Photo: (Vegan Mocha Muffins)

New Photo: (Nutella Muffins)

Or at least, it’s much better when I actually use my light box.

I eat yogurt every day:

I was telling my friend Kelly yesterday, I think I could still be a vegan if it wasn’t for greek yogurt πŸ˜‰

Wednesday is my new favorite day of the week:

Jenn has single-handedly transformed hump-day.

Some of my favorite What I Ate Wednesday Posts:

What I Ate [for $2] Wednesday

His & Hers WIAW

What [Protein] I Ate Wednesday

I’ve discovered so many amazing new bloggers:

I literally can’t name them all, but since I haven’t had a chance to update my blogroll in awhile, I want to call out:

Tessa @ Amazing Asset

Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli

Kat @ Keepin the Faith

Bonnie @ Glam Kitten’s Litter Box

Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen

And a ton of other amazing bloggers! (I seriously wish I could name you all, I promise I’ll updated my blogroll soon!)

What have you learned in the past year?


  1. Yay happy 1 year!! I love this flashback post πŸ™‚
    This past year I’ve learned that I can’t go a day without sunflower seed butter on something, the blog community ROCKS, and like you, I have something to get excited about on Wednesdays haha

  2. What a great post πŸ™‚ It is always fun looking back on how you have improved πŸ˜€

    I have learnt A LOT about myself this past year. Seeing as how I haven’t had my blog for a year, it isn’t documented, but living away from home has a lot to do with the growth I have noticed within myself. I am so much more independant than before. I am also much more comfortable just being ME πŸ˜€

  3. Happy one year blogiversary!!! Oh my goodness I can’t even begin w how much I’ve learned over the past year lol , let’s just say my life is so very different (for the better) than it was just one short year ago! πŸ˜‰

  4. Congrats on the one year! πŸ™‚ Funny how our blog evolves over just one year, right?

  15. My one year blogging anniversary is in December. I gave up chips for Lent and have now not had chips since March 9. I’m proud of myself and I’ve learned that I could do it and that my weight maintainace efforts are so much easier with out them!

  24. Congraatulations, happy blogiversary! I did a vegan week in February and it was yoghurt that I missed the most – and milk chocolate… πŸ™‚

  25. Hahahah!!! I almost purchased my FIRST EVER Greek Yogurt Tub today, but I put it back….its been years since I bought any yogurt, but I’ve been craving strange things lately and this being one of them! I think I should just do it πŸ˜‰


  26. Happy one year blog anniversary! I love greek yogurt too, it’s like a cheat meal everyday, so creamy and custard like, yummy!

  28. Happy 1 year anniversary! I love greek yogurt too, definitely one of my favourite dairy product!

  29. HAHA I’m the same — I could imagine going vegan but I could not give up my daily yogurt!!! Looks like yours — see this post: http://dareyouto.blogspot.com/2011/11/learn-to-love-greek-yogurt.html

    I’ve been learning a little about kefir as a vegan sub for yogurt. Have you tried it?

  30. Happy One Year! woot woot!
    I was taking my dogs out and trying to eat some cereal at the same time, and dropped the bowl down our staircase–luckily I got a picture of cheerios and milk all over the carpet (good thing my landlord doesn’t read my blog (-:) Here’s to being awkward and having an amazing Thanksgiving!

  31. Happy one year blogiversary! I started my blog one year ago too (tomorrow is the actual day!) Greek yogurt is my one dairy product must-have–it is such a great source of protein for me.

  32. I JUST saw this! (As you know, life has been a bit crazy…) Thanks for the love m’dear…and can’t wait to celebrate with you…in person???
