Anywho, time for the weekly "5 things I like" post.
1. Red Velvet Art.
I started following Elsie's blog a few weeks ago, and I LOVE it! She's so crafty (and so are the other ladies involved) and inspiring. Seeing her posts and projects makes me want to create more and more...plus, I keep getting more ideas for photoshoots and such. I love it. You should definitely check out their stuff.
2. My bike.
I can't believe I still haven't taken any photos of my actual bike...but then again, I like to carry very little with me when I ride it...and my camera is heavy. So, this photo is from the Trek website...but this is the exact bike that he got me...the colors remind me of a banana. I like it...and I LOVE not driving my car everyday. It feels really good.
I've recently changed my eating habits...mostly just keeping track of what I'm eating. It's not necessarily a diet, I just really needed to start being more mindful of what/how much I eat. I've been doing this for about 3 weeks now & I've already lost 9 pounds...plus I've been trying to walk Simon more, ride my bike instead of drive, and exercise more. Since I've become more disciplined in those aspects, I feel like I can handle a detox. It's a really simple one that I've successfully completed before...and I felt amazing afterwards. So, starting tomorrow, I'll only be eating raw foods for a week...actually, it'll be 2 days of raw fruits & vegetables, 3 days of juice/water, and then 2 more days of raw fruits & vegetables. I'm pretty excited about it.

Daniel & I have a nephew on the way thanks to my beautiful sister-in-law and her husband, and I thought that a quilt would be the perfect gift for him! His name is Isaiah (unsure of the middle name as of right now). Brianna crocheted us a throw as a wedding gift that we absolutely love...and I've always wanted to make a quilt...so I'm going to give it a go. I'll try to document/blog my progress...keep in mind though, I have no clue what I'm doing.
5. Cold pizza.
Random, I know...but we had pizza for dinner...and I'm eating the leftovers right now...gotta get in all the bad food I can before tomorrow...well, not really. But I still had some calorie allowance left for the day, so I figured it was alright.
That's all for now...hopefully I'll have time to start on that quilt tomorrow. I'll also try to update on the detox. I'm pretty excited about it.
