Weekend: Bridal Shower, Tattoo, Normalcy

My bridal shower went well - it was a gorgeous day and my family and friends were very sweet and got along really well! I basically ate one meal that day (it was from 11:30 - 3:30ish so I ate right in the middle of the day) with a few snacks surrounding it.

Had a yogurt to start the day, then ate my shower brunch (two small pieces of quiche, fruit salad, and about 1/4 cup of this AMAZING french toast bake my cousin made - also some mimosas and the cake they bought for me!), then I had some sweet potatoes at night.

Back to normal today - had a great breakfast with Chris to start the day on new, colorful plates:


Eating food on colorful plates makes meal time really enjoyable for me. I like colorful food, and this just brings it to a new level! So an egg scramble with veggies and a piece of bacon to start my day. I have LOVED having a whole day to spend with Chris. We went grocery shopping and prepped a bunch of healthy, paleo food for our week. We also went for a walk in the city park:

Told you it was a gorgeous weekend!!!

We also set up our tattoo appointments for our wedding tattoos - we are doing them a few months after the wedding so that we can go on our honeymoon to Japan without having to worry about taking care of new tattoos. So in November, I am getting my first tattoo above the waist: a red-tailed hawk on my rib cage!

I am feeling all sorts of glee, stress, excitement, joy, grief, and everything in between these days.

Onwards and upwards, my friends :)



  1. I have been a follower of you for a time now, I did not have a blogger account before, so this is my first comment. Hi!
    I wanted to say that you really are an inspiration to me by your success with beating the eating disorder and being paleo.

  2. I'm so happy for you! Sounds like just a wonderful weekend!
