The Time Has Come....

people.... its AUG 31st! And if you remember this post, then that means that i have officially completed one whole month without eating sugary sweets! 

im going to take a moment to pat myself on the back!

ok moment over. honestly i thought that this was going to be oh so tough, but it actually wasnt that difficult. 
do you know how many sugar free options there are out there?! 
now im not saying i didnt crave any of this....
but the last couple of weeks it was so easy to just say "no thanks" when offered a something delicious. i think that im going to continue to watch my sugar intake, but im pretty sure instead of "no thanks" i'll say, "ok, just a taste!"

Back to School

Today my mom made me i had the opportunity to go school supply shopping with my 11 year old sister.... interesting. but it got me thinking, THAT was my very favorite part about a new school year. new pencils, new pens, notebooks, fancy folders, pencil holders,  scissors, glue, markers, crayons, colored pencils, rulers, the supplies are ENDLESS. I would organize and re-organize my backpack at least twice a day everyday until school started. life was truly great when i went through my supplies. 
now im lucky if i can afford my books for my classes, no new notebooks for me! 
oh to be a kid again.

blue or green?!

soo i  was looking at the picture in my last post, and i was looking at the two photos that were taken literally seconds between each other, and i noticed that 1. i should have just showered and not tried to do anything with my hair, AND 2. my eyes are blue in one photo and green in the other. i edited the photo, but all i did was put a 1960s tint on, and it did it to both at the same time.... people always tell me i have blue eyes, then the next day they say green, i always assumed that they changed with what i was wearing... interesting!

let the games begin. :)
