I've been a very bad Vegan

So we took Gracie to her first Mets game, we went up since it was Phillies vs Mets at Shea Stadium. Gracie LOVES the mets and will sing you every Mets song known to man. It was awesome watching the game, Gracie had an amazing time. I think the happiest I've ever seen her was when David Wright (her favorite player) scored a home run. After the game they let all the kids run the bases and she started dancing with Mr. Met. The Phillies ended up winning which made Schmoop very happy but at least Gracie was oblivious to her favorite team losing. Schmoop was talking to her after the game and this is thier conversation:
Me: What was your favorite part of the game?

Gracie: Dancing with David Wright.

Schmoop: Did you dance with David or Mr Met?

G: Mr. Met.

S: Did you enjoy David Wright’s home run?

G: Yeah

S: Did the Phillies get any home runs?

G: Nah.

I think she missed the Phillies Grand Slam :)

So about the bad Vegan part, so we were at a baseball game so you know while your there you have to have a hot dog. Its kind of like a crime against the United States if you don't partake in at least one hot dog when visiting one of the nations finest baseball stadiums. So halfway through the $5 hot dog I realized that it probably wasn't the best idea. So what will make me feel better, why an Italian hoagie of course! We were driving through Hoboken on the way home so we stopped for a real hoagie. Needless to say my stomach wasn't too happy with the drastic one day change in diet and Schmoop and I are determined to be much better with our Veganocity. I feel like a cold is coming on now, and I've been coughing alot so of course I'm blaming it on our one day foray into the world of meats and cheeses.

Everyone slips now and then. Try not to beat yourself up. Following a special food diet is HARD. I tried to follow a MS diet for a year and eventually gave up.
