Friday confessions

Happy Friday to all! I can’t believe this was only a four day week. To me, it felt much, much longer. TGIF. Anyway, since it’s been a busy week, I have 8 zillion things I could talk about, but I figured I’d just ramble about a few of them today, and save the rest for next week!

Friday Confessions
1) I started a cleanse last week. Now before you start thinking it’s a ‘liquid-only’ cleanse or ‘oh-my-gosh-I’m-starving cleanse’, let me just say that it’s so NOT that type of cleanse. This girl has to eat! The cleanse I started is actually a gluten-free, dairy-free, caffeine-free, corn-free, alcohol-free, get-those-toxins-out-of-your-body cleanse that I’m doing it with my Mom. To be honest, I am 6 days in and loving it! (Please note I did not love it at first…giving up coffee is NOT an easy task. Neither is giving up dairy). I committed to cleansing for 14 days so I’m sticking to it. Truthfully, I’m doing this in order to try and self-diagnose myself as gluten intolerant or not. One more week to go! I don’t even feel like I’m cleansing though. Look what I’ve been eating:
I’m planning on going into-depth about this in a future post, and I’ve got some great new recipes to share, too! I really enjoyed Kelly’s recap on her week of going Paleo, so that is the inspiration for my future post. Thanks Kelly : –)

2) I planned and booked my sisters bridal shower AND bachelorette party this week. I.am.psyched. The bridal shower location is perfect. We are keeping the location a secret from my sister for now, but here is the view:

Plus the bachelorette weekend is going to be exactly what she wanted.  We’re heading to Atlantic City, NJ at the beginning of May and staying at Revel Hotel. I’m already counting down. Can’t wait to celebrate my twin,best friend, and the bride-to-be.

3)  I am currently studying frantically for the GRE (aka the graduate school entrance exam) that I’m taking early next week. At this point, I’m just trying to have the mentality ‘I can only do my best’. Has anyone else taken this? If so, any tips? All I can say is, thank goodness for this book, and for blueberry smoothies. Those two things have helped me through!

4) I’m currently very jealous of Brandon’s climate versus mine. Check this out:
Hmmm…where would you rather be? Miss you, B!

5) I have reached the point of obsessiveness about getting a dog. My Instagram feed is filled with these photos and it’s making it 100 times worse:

Can you guess what kind of dog I want?  : –)
Have a great weekend, friends!

What are your confessions?
Anyone else ever try a cleanse? Like it? Dislike it? Please share!
