Friday Round-up // Week 26

If you follow me on twitter or instagram, you might have caught on to the fact that I did a juice cleanse this week…and I survived!!! Holy crap, you guys, that was pretty brutal. Three days of all juice. Did you hear me???  Only juice!!  What was I thinking? The shocking part too is that I really wasn’t all that hungry over the three days. I used the Juice Shop service (they deliver!), and they do a pretty good job of making just the right combo of juices to get you through the day, and they all taste pretty yummy. The brutal part is that I was soooooooo exhausted. My brain just did not seem to be functioning properly, and I was ready for bed by like 6pm every night. Kevin would say something to me, and it would take like a full ten seconds before I realized words had been spoken. Oh, and then responding…yeah, that was a monumental task.


But I made it through, and I feel pretty good! I do feel “lighter” as many fellow juicers claim, but I can already tell it’s coming back after one day of eating light solid foods. But that’s ok…my whole point was just to do a little detoxing, hit the reset, and get a little kickstart. I’d say mission was accomplished!


Here are a few of my favorites links for the week….





You know that guy that ripped Guy Fieri last year? Well, he took a stab at Paula Deen as well.  Sheesh, she has had quite a week, huh?



My college friend (and fellow blogger) just launched a kickstarter campaign for a fun food project in Santa Barbara. I funded! Will you take a look?



Huh, one of life’s great mysteries solved.



So glad to hear about the new Eater app (it’s free!). I’m obsessed with their Eater 38 Lists — very reliable.



Ok, this list is disturbing. I assume my childhood favorite Apple Jacks don’t make the cut?



Another friend was published in a mag…congrats Sarah!



If you’re a Mad Men fan, you simply have to read this. It’s laugh out loud funny.



Don’t forget, Google Reader is donezo July 1st! But don’t fret, you can find me through other readers, such as Bloglovin or Feedly.



I blogged over at My Thirty Spot this week, and it involved ice cream! (I’ll be blogging there monthly)



So thrilled to announce the Martha Stewart Book giveaway winner is JENNIFER CLARE SIMMONS!!!! 

Congrats, Jen, and thanks to all for entering! xoxo

Have a great weekend!
