Favorite Moments:

–Finishing Whole 30 on Tuesday, stepping on the scale and feeling bad ass!!!

–Getting my Blogging for Books book in the mail. I love when I forget I have something coming to me!

–Meeting up with Laura yesterday for our “we finished Whole 30” lunch! We checked out a new spot called Sky Castle Gastro Lounge and it. was. awesome. We will be back for sure!!! Pimento Cheese Fritters with Andouille Sausage and the Sky Castle Burger with House Made Pickles. MMMMMMM sadly I only ate about a little less than half the bun before I quit it. Amazing how much your body can change after just 30 days of clean eating!

–Any Stabler fans out there? Apparently, the writers of SVU were coming up with a finale if they were to be cancelled. Thankfully they weren’t. Buttt apparently Stabler was going to be asked to come back for it. Get all the details here and tell me if you think maybe he might come back in the next season anyways???? Please!!!!

    I often shuck the bun and just eat the burger! The bun is too much.

    Love all the HIMYM gifs! I tried one of the workouts you shared a few weeks ago and I’ve loved it… Can’t wait to do this one! Have a great weekend, girl!

  • Reply Jackie @ My Sort Of Adult Life February 5, 2016 at 11:11 am

    HAHA I love your HIMYM funnies. Best show ever! Reading about your Whole 30 challenge is really inspiring me to do it but I fear I might die without coffee creamer or cheese…

  • Reply B @ Sequin Notebook February 5, 2016 at 11:23 am

    I was just surprised by my latest Blogging for Books selection too, I love when I get surprises in the mail, haha. Hope you have a great weekend!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo February 5, 2016 at 11:45 am

    I’m totally 100% in agreement about the tax deduction for dogs – man, the money we spend on our animals 🙂

    HAHA – it must have been in the air – I got a blogging for books that I forgot about this week too!

    So glad you are enjoying all the yummies now after the whole 30 – well deserved!

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots February 5, 2016 at 1:08 pm

    Cheese fritters and homemade pickles? My mouth is watering, yum!

  • Reply Amy February 5, 2016 at 1:09 pm

    Wow! So how was that first off program meal? I had some feta on my salad yesterday and it didn’t love me. Except for the micro pleats those are all very good trends that I would totally wear!

  • Reply Mattie February 5, 2016 at 2:11 pm

    That restaurant looks amaaazing.

    I am obsessed with all the HIMYM gifs at the end. That’s our current before bed show. So good!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis February 5, 2016 at 3:48 pm

    The Pimento Cheese Fritters sound amazing! Great way to treat yourself after completing the Whole30 but not to eat on the regular. Loving that faux vest!! Enjoy the weekend girlie and maybe have a beverage to celebrate those successful 30 days!

  • Reply Christina February 5, 2016 at 4:25 pm

    Prayer in C is such a great song! Have a wonderful weekend!

    LOVE that vest!
    I’m a huge Stabler fan… I watched every single SVU episode UNTIL he left. Just wasn’t the same without him.

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders February 6, 2016 at 4:33 pm

    I would literally die if Stabler came back to SVU! I just love him so much! And I totally would have bunged just like you after ending Whole30, but way to go for saying no to some of the bad stuff. And I always love unexpected packages, especially if it involves books! I hope your weekend is going wonderfully!

  • Reply Kay R. February 7, 2016 at 3:28 pm

    The whole 30 sloppy joes looks great actually! Yay you for continuing to eat well!

  • Reply Kaitlyn February 8, 2016 at 4:39 am

    Haha, claiming your dog as a dependent. That would be both awesome and hilarious, and also increase pet adoption rates come tax season lol. Thanks for the recipe idea. I feel like I’m running out of meal ideas for my whole30. I need some quick and easy recipes.

  • Reply kristen February 8, 2016 at 10:57 am

    ewwww that nun one hahahaha.

    the sloppy joes look amazing and i really want to try something similar over a baked potato ever since i saw your picture. looked delish. also, all the food looks so good, can’t believe you only ate half. go you girl! i ate all the things this weekend and consequently gained all the weight.

  • Reply Katie February 10, 2016 at 11:25 am

    That lunch, yum! Glad you got to celebrate a decadent lunch together to celebrate. That’s great that you taught your body (and mind) new tricks and only ate half the burger. Wow! And yes to the seaweed, ick! I scream so loud!

  • Reply Katy February 17, 2016 at 2:08 pm

    My favorite gossip is my best friend’s gossip about her one CRAZY sister. Like, this girl has gone off the deep end. And the stories are amazing. She recently got her car repo’d, bought a new bed (but not a mattress), a new TV, and got her cat back from her ex-husband. All while living with three people who probably weren’t even asked if she could bring the cat in – oh man. Cant wait for the next installment.

    And seriously, with a second great dane on the way – why CANT dogs be dependents?
