Only 3 days of work this week!!!

Eeeee! I'm so excited - my younger sister is turning 21 on Thursday so I'm only working 3 days at my internship this week! Yay!

We are going to have so much fun celebrating so I'm super pumped. Of course ED is freaking out a little bit because we are having cake on Thursday night - part of me doesn't want to have any but another part of me knows that one little piece of cake isn't going to make me instantly gain 10 lbs. Ughhh...any advice??

So, since this blog is new, I thought I'd introduce you guys to some of the important people in my life who I'll probably talk about frequently. First, there are my parents. I'm incredibly close to them and they're really like my best friends. I couldn't have asked for a better mom and dad. My twin sister, Caroline, is my best friend in the entire world and we spend tonssss of time together! She never dealt with an ED but is so supportive and always helps bring me back to reality when ED is really strong. My younger sister, Colleen, is super smart and fun and Caroline and I love her to pieces. She's so excited about turning 21! So, that's my family. We are all very close and spend a lot of time doing stuff together, which is great. Apart from my family, I'll probably mention a certain guy pretty frequently. Let's call him "J." J. was my boyfriend for about 6 yrs (crazy, I know!) and we just broke up a few months ago. We are still reallyyyy good friends and he is also very close to my family. He lives in another state and is flying down to spend Colleen's birthday weekend with us so I will let you know how that goes. It's been a bit tense lately because he's "moved on" from our relationship rather quickly and has already been with another girl (TMI? - sorry if it is!). I will let you all know how that goes when he gets here on Thursday, though.

As far as eats go, breakfast today was the typical muffin and berries. I also had a large iced coffee with a packet of chocolate "Amazing Grass." YUMMY!

Oh, and I will post the muffin recipe when I get home tonight! See you pretty girls later!


  1. AWWW sounds liek a fun weekend is planned :) Whoop WhooP! Happy birthday to your sister! - - only 2 more years til im 21! haha. Hope everything goes well with J..that must be tough, but its cool that you guys are still friends and get along - and obviously he must not be too serious with this other girl if hes coming to hang out with you and your sister!!

    As for the cake - just remember that you only live once!!! one piece of cake (or even an entire cake for that matter!) isnt going to kill you!!

  2. I remember my 21st birthday, it was so much fun. I hope you and your Sister enjoy yourselves.

  3. Thanks so much for your comment on my blog. I enjoyed the lunch even if I wasn't totally successful. I figure it's a learning process and I'm going to try. Do you read Veggie Girl? She's found a raw cafe that delivers to anywhere in the US. I'm looking forward to trying them out. If you want I'll send you the URL so you can check it out.

  4. I can't wait for my 21st birthday! Like... 5 more years to go.

    I hope you'll push all ED thoughts away because cake is amazing and is so NOT worth it to miss!

    Hmm, I've never had a boyfriend before, but I'm glad you are still good friends with yours.
