From the moment I got out of work on Friday until this morning I have been going and going and going …like the energizer bunny. However I think someone needs to reload my batteries because the lack of sleep and the running around has made me congested and exhausted today. Friday I spent the afternoon with the Hubz getting ready for my friend Laura’s Birthday Party, which I hosted last night. We ran around picking up decorations and food supplies for the party and didn’t make it home until late Friday night. Once we arrived home we spent a few hours prepping for the party and then finally I crashed from pure exhaustion (key word of the weekend).
Saturday I spent the morning prepping for the party and then I was off to Healthy Living Market to do a demo for Lulu’s Raw Chocolate. I had done a review for Lulu’s back this past winter and loved their chocolate so when they asked me to do a demo for them I was all over it. I love this chocolate and was ready to spread the word. Honestly best chocolate I have ever had and it’s raw, vegan and made with low glycemic coconut sugar. After my demo I ran home to finish prepping for the party and spend a few minutes sitting down to relax before my hosting duties started.
The party was a great time we hung out and enjoyed appetizers and drinks and laugh (a lot). I unfortunately only snapped one picture at the party and it was of my veggie and dip platter. In addition to that we had jalapeno “poppers”, stuffed mushrooms, artichoke dip, cupcakes, Zero Gravity beer and sangria.
After an extremely late night (we didn’t go to bed until 1am) I ended up sleeping in until 10:30 am and woke up congested and still tired. I ran myself ragged this weekend but it was as great time. Also it’s a perfect reason to start our new mind, body and soul cleanse this week. I am not going to reveal all of the details as this is a project I am working on but it is a 4 week holistic cleanse that helps to create balance, energy and overall wellness. The first week is the most restrictive and includes eliminating added sugars, soy, gluten and wheat, TV and limits other electronic access (so yes I will still be blogging and checking my email). It is actually the perfect week to start this because I have to send my MacBook in to get repaired. I will further discuss my experience with the cleanse during my future weekend wrap ups.
