Fridays Five: My Bridal Shower

My lovely sister and mother threw me a gorgeous Bridal Shower on Sunday! I feel bad when people do things simply for me, so I tried to get involved with the planning and details but was forced to stay out of it. I’m so busy with work and wedding planning, so I didn’t pry too much 😉

I was taken back by how beautiful everything was! I knew it would be — I just wanted to help but I am glad I didn’t because it made it that much more special to me and a moment I will cherish forever.

Whole30: Final Week Review

Is it already Day 30?!! ….of the program that felt like it would last for 100 days!  I am on to the fast-paced reintroduction phase and I am pretty excited! Honestly, I had to check the calendar like 3 times to be sure the 30 days was over. Once you get the hand of it, it kind of just goes by quickly 🙂

Am I glad I did this? Kinda. Do I think that I feel so much better without eating ____? Not really. Have I learned more about my body and food from this experience? Absolutely. Honestly though, life is too short and if I want to eat a freakin sushi roll every once in a while, I am going to. Everything in moderation and you’ll be golden.

For the reintroduction phase, (more…)
