Funday Monday

All kinds of fun things going on today.
Check out these bad boys that Doug finished today! Are they not incredible, or what?
Inspired by this lovely character.
Also, we've stuck with our raw challenge so far. I like to take photos of food, and this included. Doug had a banana smoothie for breakfast (with 100% juice and ice) and I had a blueberry banana smoothie (same, 100% juice and ice) and for lunch, an apple, strawberry, walnut, and avocado salad. I know you are all totally interested in what we ate today...right? Ha! But here it is anyways!
I went grocery shopping after work and discovered that it is WAY less expensive to eat raw than not. I expected to pay about the same and my total was about $20 less than my usual weekly trip to the store. I like that a lot. Like I said, i don't know how long we'll do this for, but I want to lose 15 pounds by the first day of summer (June 21st?) and I am hoping this will help!

And, most importantly, why haven't you taken a little visit to my pal Danielle's blog for the most amazing photos I have ever seen in my life. Here's one just to get you going.
(is your day complete now? Mine is.)

I have a bunch of work to do around the house and stuff to pack up to mail off tomorrow. And I'm hungry, so have a great Monday!



  1. Those glasses are super, I want them. And that salad looks oh so yummy. Has it been hard going raw?

  2. i need some good smoothie recipes!!! mmm avocado... my favorite! i never would have thought to mix it with strawberries though? smart!

    i LOVE those pee wee sunnies! gorgeous. and danielle's family portraits with her tumbleweeds ;) LOVED IT!!!

    happy new week sweet friend xoxo

  3. Those glasses are too cute! I've already made sure to make my boyfriend known that I've added your sunglasses to my birthday wishlist and it isn't even until August!

    Somehow I missed when you first wrote about the raw challenge! I've been thinking about doing this for a few days now and I think tomorrow ought to be the day to begin! We have a trip coming up in a week and a half and going raw until then seems like a nice plan to shed a little in a hurry while getting plenty of nutrients in!

  4. I actually didn't really write about it, yet. oops. It's our own personal raw challenge. I was really inspired by Carly over at and her post about going raw. you should check it out.

  5. Mila, I'm going to do a wrap up post at the end of the week with my results and how I feel. We'll see then! :0

  6. is it weird that i just took pride in your raw day hahaha. i mean, not that i invited the idea, but it feels so awesome to know that i effected someone in such a positive way! i love seeing what other people ingest, too.

    I too was shocked when i went to the store and didn't break the bank. and having a fridge full of fresh goodness. plus! you'll be saving money on fast food... definitely not raw.

  7. Those Pee-Wee glasses are phenomenal. I want some!
    Also, Danielle's pictures cracked me up. Haha!

  8. Not weird, Renee. Not weird at all. Day two has been super easy too.
