Before I get into this post, I want to have a quick tribute to the passing of July (aka my favorite month of the year).
Plans for August:
- Going back to school (ah!) and all the shenanigans of that
- Trip to Mammoth with Ali, her family and boyfriend, and Scott!
- Trying to standup paddle board (hopefully!)
As my last birthday celebration came to an end, I realized something: I am so excited to eat healthy foods (or try to) again. After days (4 to be exact) of eating birthday cake, ice cream, and cupcakes, I can officially say I feel gross.
And almost burned out on sweets. I give it a day until my sweet tooth will return with a burning passion for all things dessert.
Starting tomorrow, I am going to officially make some healthy meals and snacks without venturing into the leftover cake for breakfast. Anyway, carrot cupcakes for breakfast was so yesterday. Literally.
But until tomorrow morning, I can still share my beautiful lemon cake with lemon icing made by my grandmother.
I especially like the homemade cake decorations. Nothing says "Happy Birthday" quite like a hamster holding balloons ;)
Oh, and I got a haircut! I'm a big baby about change so even though it was just a trim, I'm still sulking about the house about how it's so short. Here's a before and after picture (I'm even wearing the same dress!). And I'm realizing now that you really can't see that much of a difference.
Oh well, I promised it looks different in person!
It's time for me to go to bed! I really need to start doing that earlier at night :)
