4 Days.....that's how long I lasted on the cleanse. Yup I welcomed coffee back into my life-with pretty open arms too. I did realize a few things in those 4 days.....I already eat a lot of vegetables and not a large amount of dairy or meat so I think it may have been a bit easier on me than people that have those two categories as staples in their lives. I just didn't have it in me....I caved pretty quickly and I'm ok with that. I did learn to make a green smoothie that I enjoyed.....zucchini, banana, some coconut milk, greens and a stevia, I also picked up a great new snack rice cakes and hummus-loving it!

I have a busy work week ahead of me but am hopefully that I'll get a few crafty posts up this week.

Happy Monday morning to everyone

This Week

A little recap on what I've been up to this week

The Cleanse: I've learned a few things these first few days of the cleanse.
- i LOVE coffee-yeah that might be my coffee addiction talking. I haven't given in yet-but I do stare longingly at it every morning and can't wait for the cleanse to be over so I can have a nice soy latte.
-i get very crabby when hungry and that combined with a crazy 2 year old has made for a few frustrating mornings.
-i am living vicariously through my children-i made them choc chip banana pancakes this morning-neither one was really too interested in them

-i've been keeping busy with curtain orders. I love getting to see how all of them turn out and seeing how different they can all be. Working on some teal ones for a child's bedroom, a fun and funky Alexander Henry pattern for 4 panels, and a couple of others are on the shelf waiting for me.
-i haven't been quilting lately. I am SO behind in the quilting bee that i'm embarrassed. But I'm hoping to get those done and get started on Phin's bday quilt next week.
-i re-purposed this onesie and 4t dress into a dress for Phin for our family pics next week.
-i am continuously thinking of updates for our house, but without the money to follow through. My newest idea is to add a master bedroom upstairs over the kitchen(it would be perfect)

happy friday everyone!

Getting Ready for the BIG 3-0

Yes that's right I'm turning 30 at the end of the month and I am doing a pretty non-traditional thing and am doing a 21-day cleanse leading up to my birthday. I want to start 30 out on the right foot and think that detoxing my body of coffee(yeah I 'm crazy) and everything else bad and hope it will give me a good start for my next year.

So I started today....not so bad yet but I won't bore you with the details. Maybe I'll do a weekly update.
If anyone's interested it's based on Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr. So when I told my husband I wanted to do a cleanse for my birthday he thought I was crazy-if I were quicker-I would have said I wanted him to do the cleanse with me for my birthday....ahhhh too slow.
