Good morning ya'll! I know I am such a bad blogger, but life has just been going 100 miles an hour lately. My job is keeping me super busy, in the best way, and our weekends have been nonstop too. Must. Plan. Better. P.S. I am NOT loving this time change. No bueno.
This weekend started with me going to about 1094 stores to find a dress, shoes and jewelry for a party this weekend. I couldn’t say too much here about it because it was a surprise party for one of my very best friends and she reads my blog from time to time. More on the party later.
I finished the Advocare 10 day cleanse on Friday. My overall experience was a good one. I will first say that everyone’s experience is different, and I’d recommend the cleanse to anyone! I don’t have anything bad to say about it. I will say though, that since I eat pretty closely to how the cleanse wants you to eat, I didn’t have major detox issues nor did I lose amazing amounts of weight. I was down a total of two pounds and a couple of inches as of Day 10. The only real difference for me was no cheese or diet soda. I don’t drink a ton of it or eat a ton of cheese anyway, so again, it wasn’t a huge life changing event. I do love me some Fruit Punch Spark, but I found I can’t drink it in the morning or I’d be shaky till lunch. Drinking it in the afternoon was fine though, so I am considering buying more. The only “cheat” I had in the 10 days was fajitas. I didn’t have tortillas or cheese, but they did grill it in oil, even though I requested they didn’t. I was too hungry to object.
Probably the best thing about the cleanse was how much water it got me drinking. I am real bad about not enough water, and I drank nearly a gallon every day. I will definitely keep this habit up. If you’d like to do this cleanse, please contact Kelly!! She was so helpful and quick to get in touch with. I recommend NOT weighing yourself daily on this thing, like I did. Not seeing the scale move will make you want to cheat really badly.
Now, on to the weekend. Saturday night was my very best friend’s surprise birthday party. This girl has the biggest heart and does so much for so many people. If it weren’t for her, my bachelorette party and bridal shower probably wouldn’t have happened. She is super creative and sweet and everyone should have a friend like her. I need to make more of an effort to hang out with her soon because she is also tons of fun.
Her husband put the party together and she had no idea. I love a good surprise party. Her reaction was priceless!
We never get a chance to dress up so we had fun with it. And no, your eyes aren't deceiving you, pasty got a spray tan! I might be a little obsessed. Move over Snooki

Yesterday was spent having lunch with my mom, napping, grocery shopping for the week, and trying to stay awake! I am not a spring chicken anymore, apparently. Tonight I am
being totally batshit crazy and driving to New Orleans with my coworker for a concert, driving home, then going to work 2-3 hours later. That's what coffee's for! I am promising atleast two more posts this week, and an ORB giveaway!
