I did get a haircut today tho! She took quite a bit off in length and gave it more shape. My hair was so dull and boring before...not that it is super exciting and great now, but it's a lot better!! Now, I just need to work on getting it colored. My friend who I like to have color my hair is pregnant at the moment so I can't have her do it : (
I thought I would have had my little table done to show you by now, but I have been forgetting to pick up spray paint! Everytime I run somewhere I completely space it out : ( I should get on that tonight huh?! You know what...I'm going to get that right now!

(Sorry about the sideways photo!! It shouldn't be sideways, but it kept uploading it that way!)
I painted it black and hung it in the living room :) Love it! ...not so sure about the reed diffuser being on it, but we'll see...I'm also not sure what photo is going in the frame, so I blurred out the lame pic that is in it now. Haha.

Apparently the red hadn't dried and when it rained it all came off and left a strange white film.
This project has now turned into even more of a project...now i have to fix this before I can continue...ugh.
I have officially given up on the cleanse : ( Simply because I am a wuss. I enjoy food and I was weak. I wouldn't have felt like such a failure if I had been starving...but I WASN'T EVEN HUNGRY! I just ate for the sake of eating!!!
But you better believe I WILL be doing the cleanse again in a few months and I WILL suceed then! I know I can do it...I just need to be in the right mindset and I started out in the right mindset, but then I just gave in. That will be the toughest struggle for me, not eating when I'm bored or just WANT food.
So, goodbye for now Master Cleanse...but I WILL BE BACK!!!

My friend Gena and I were driving on one of the busiest roads here in town...I look to the right of the road and think "Wow! That's a big dog!" Then I realize, that's not a dog that's a BEAR! It was a small bear who proceeded to run across the road stopping all traffic! Thank God the other cars saw it and stopped! It was crazy! Because it's not like we live in a small country town...we live in a town with 80,000 people!
I just had to share...
It is a children's play table. I originally had thought that I would paint it red and put it in our pantry for our beer making supplies to sit on...I have changed my mind and have a much better use for it! However, I can't say yet...
Now, I am using leftover paint from when we painted the living room...
for the base color. Then I am going to use the free Red Delicious Glidden paint quart I got for the top coat. Then I will sand edges and such off to make it look a little aged and have the orange peek thru! ...Lets hope it looks good!
I didn't get too far today. I got the orange done on the legs and bottom. (this picture is after only the first coat...notice the nice spot I missed!)
I will post finished pics tomorrow hopefully!

I picked up the last of my ingredients for the "lemonade" mixture today. I picked up the organic grade B maple syrup and the organic lemons. I now have everything I need! I am excited to see how this whole thing goes and I'm interested to see how the mixture tastes.
Bob leaves tomorrow am for his annual Guys' Weekend. Usually they just go for 3-5 days, this year him and two others are doing a whole week and the others will join them on Thursday or Friday. He is SUPER excited. The trip seems to consist of drinking, shooting things, eating and drunken craziness. Haha. He always has a blast and surprisingly the injuries seem to be limited...well, since I've known him at least.
I am excited for him to go, because I know he'll have a blast...but at the same time I know I'll miss him. However, like I said before, probably better he won't be here in case I do get cranky with no food!

Today was the first day with no 'real' food...I think I did well tho. Only actually felt hungry once really. I have to say tho, I'm already looking forward to a HUGE bowl of mac-n-cheese with red, yellow, orange & green pepper, jalapeno, onion and a lil veg stock to thin it out!!! I CAN'T WAIT to make that the minute I can eat real food again! So...13 days and counting!!! (this includes the last day of ease in and ease out)
So, wish me luck, it's started!

The last post about makin' beer made me think I should show you guys our beer bottle collection. It's not that we're lushes...we just really enjoy trying new kinds of beer. Finding out what we like, don't like and what makes us cringe.
These are the tops of our cupboards. Most have been added my me prior to Bob moving in (over a long period of time, no worries). They are all different kinds of beer I/we have tried.
