cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good...

"Who can take tomorrow
Dip it in a deam
Seperate the sorrow
And collect up all the cream?" -Willy Wonka

Self-mini-makeover week is over. I am happy to report I confronted the ick in my life and have prevailed (at least for now). I also quit drinking pop (again). I do this intermittantly in life and I am hoping to stay on the wagon for awhile.

Plus my diet is returning to status quo. After my grandma died I didn't have an appetite for anything. This became concerning and eventually I bribed myself to eat by eating whatever sounded good. Whatever sounded good was more often than not: sugar. My sister took to calling me "Buddy the elf".

The all-sugar diet was a little strange for me. I've always been a healthy-eater. Sweets never tempted me before. But since May that's all I think about eating. However, in the past 2 weeks I've really gotten back to craving the healthy stuff again. Veggies have made a strong return!

This weekend I ate breakfast w/ two of my besties at Le Peep. Got tons of sleep! Unfortunately witnessed Keenan's purchase of an XBOX (he's completely addicted). Ate a french toast cupcake. Finished a book. Read in the sun & shade at Crown Center waterpark. Got chinese take-out (yum). Watched Entourage & Big Brother & Bee Movie. Picked up a beautiful Banana Repuplic skirt at the thrift store, plus some vintage little Golden Books at a church sale. Plus bought a convertible sofa in dark brown, plus two giant throw pillows. (The living room looks so chic).
