Babies, Hippies, and Chickens

Last Monday, my "Weight Wall" looked like this - 

But yesterday, a couple bricks were taken out!  


Hooray, I do say! 

I am very excited about that loss, but I am not getting too hopeful until I can lose for a second week.  First week is always a gimme for me... so, I'll reserve my judgment on this diet until then!

Now, let's talk a little more about my weekend!  I had a fabulous one! 

Saturday, I spent the day cleaning, running errands, and shopping.  

Sunday, I threw my bestest friend Melissa a Baby Shower! I had it at the Melting Pot restaurant, which she loves! She has since told me that it was the best shower ever! And I am so SO SO glad that she loved it, the guests loved it, and everything went perfectly.  I even managed to stay within my 1k calories by only eating the salad and 3 ounces of lobster (cooked in broth).  

Monday, I went out with Becky.  We went back to Life Alive, which I had been dreaming about since our first visit!  This time,  I got The Mystic Mountain. 

omg. greens, carrots, beets, corn, apple, cashew, sprouts, garlic hummus.

Jive Alive juice - cucumber, celery, greens, lemon, and ginger.

I really love this place. I wish it wasn't downtown, because I just.... MMM! I am so obviously a dirty hippie on the inside. 

Here's my gorgeous Becky! 

Afterwards, we hit up an adorable boutique, where I bought two necklaces and Becky bought the whole store. ;-) 

Then, I returned home, cooked up two more chickens, 

Say hello Ethel & Gerty! 

and then started cleaning my closet.  I decided to do a mass cleansing of my clothes. So, this is the first stage - the closet!  Then, the bureau, then, the laundry. Whew, too much work being a girl!

I hope your weekend was as nice as mine!
