❤ Love is in the Air ❤

'Tis that time of year again when all the relationship statuses on Facebook begin to change from "single" to "in a relationship." And you know it's official when it's official on Facebook. Spring is on the way and, as they say, "love is in the air." Unfortunately for me influenza is also in the air so I am sitting at home wrapped up in blankets with a cold pack on my head. Blergh. But I…

Thank You Mr. President…

For this day off. I literally spent the entire day in my PJ's and I loved it. It was a busy, busy weekend. I don't think I got more than 5 hours of sleep each night. So today was a welcome rest. I also filled out my taxes today. Getting money AND lounging in bed? Yeah, it was a pretty baller day. Yesterday was my best friend Erin's Bridal Shower. It was a very great…

That’s Hot

Now that it is getting a little warmer out, (it has been an arctic tundra lately) I have started to think about cute clothes again. I know, I know, it's a vice. But if you clear out your old closet, give to charities, and keep your spending down, you are golden. I love looking at fancy clothes but the truth is, most of us just can't afford it. So here is my first Sookton's Look…

Detox Day 4- 7: A Change Gon’ Come

"It's been a long, a long time coming but I know A change gon' come, oh yes it will." Every since I came to America in the cold, bitter winter of 1999, I have adopted the American way. I remember watching MTV's TRL, Saturday Night Live and Good Morning America. I would imitate the way people on the show talked. First I would try a Texas accent, then I think it shifted to North Carolina,…

Detox Day 3: Carry On My Wayward Son

Don't you cry no more. I was supposed to write about my detox every day but it has been so hard! Here I am on day 6 writing about day 3. I had no energy, felt lethargic but super healthy all at the same time. So let me cast my mind back to day 3. Where was I? What was I doing? Most importantly, what was I eating? How was I feeling? Well day 3…

Detox Day 2: Secret Lovers

♥ Initial Weight: 126 ♥ ♥ Current Weight: 124 ♥ Mood: Fatigue, Decaffeinated. I need tea. Here I am at the end of day 2 and for probably about half of my day I have been fantasizing about caffeine. Any kind of caffeine really; caffeine and sugar. I have been dreaming about them, lusting over them like secret lovers. Oh no, now that secret lovers song is stuck in my head. So cheesy. I really…

Detox Day 1: Casting Shadows

♥ Initial weight: 126 ♥ Current Mood: Fatigue There is a Maori proverb that states, "turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you." This week I am turning toward the sun, I am leaving those shadows behind and embarking on a journey into me. For years I have read about the benefits on doing a "cleanse", "detox", "raw food diet" but I never thought I had it in me. That all…
