I Said Yes

Guess what? Matt proposed on Christmas Eve. Guess what else? I said “yes.”

Looks like we’ve got a wedding to plan, my friends.

Gift Guide: The Friends Fan

Posted on | December 25, 2014 | 2 Comments

Before it’s too late I have one final TV show based holiday gift guide. I may be posting it last but it’s certainly not my least favorite. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. For your enjoyment: The Friends Gift Guide.

Merry Christmas to Me

I still need to pick a few things and wrap a few presents but Christmas shopping was relatively easy this year. I don’t go all out or anything, just family and close friends. And of course, lil’ ol’ me. In all the hubbub don’t forget to get a gift for the most important person on your list, you. I got myself this beautiful statement necklace. Oh self, you shouldn’t have.

Goodbye pizza

So, it’s official. I will be doing my first Whole 30 in January (I’ll be starting the second to be exact). I’ve really slipped with my diet and I think a reset is just what I need. I’d like to lose weight, yes. But I’m also curious to see if it will effect my sleep and/or how I feel in general. Oh and I wouldn’t mind if  it helped my skin either. I’ve read that it can effect all of these things and much more. I’m nervous but also excited. Of course, I still have 10 days left to live it up and I’m sure I’ll be indulging a little more than normal because it’s the holidays (pass the cookies/pie/cheeseplate please) and because I know what looms in the new year for your truly.

Have you ever tried a Whole 30 or any elimination diet? Any advice?

p.s. I think I’ll miss pizza most of all.
