{Favorite Thigs GIVEAWAY! California Girl Style!!}

Hi friends! I bet you thought I forgot I had a blog, huh? Well I remembered, but I took a much needed little break this week to focus on my home and getting my eating habits back on track. 

I've been a naughty girl which has caused me to gain about 12 lbs over the last year. Not okay!!! Anyhow, I'm back on Weight Watchers hard core {I'm a Lifetime member and used to be an employee} and have eliminated bread, processed carbs, and sugar from my diet indefinitely. I love them too much. They're like my gateway drug to horrible eating habits. {sigh} But, I've actually been doing really well. The first two days were rough {like I wanted to punch someone in the face rough}, but now I feel good. I've already lost two lbs too! Eating clean is pretty magical. I want to lose it all by July 1st {vacation!!!} so that's about 1.4 lbs per week. Pretty crazy goal. Wish me luck! I promise to keep you updated along the way!

Alright onto the good stuff! Did you see that Sew Chatty reached 1000 followers on FB a few weeks ago? So excited about that so we're going to celebrate with a little GIVEAWAY!!!

 I love summer and I couldn't be more excited that we're just a few short weeks away! These are some of my summer must haves! I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I do!
 Enter using the form below! Good luck!

  15. I love going to farmer's market and having more salads for dinner. We are also trying to cut back on bread and other carbs. It is easier to do in the summer when produce is in abundance. I try to do 2 veggie side dishes for our meat instead of a carb.

  16. I live about a mile from a farmer's market that features local fresh produce and flowers. If I walk to to the market and eat the produce as snacks instead of what I really want (junk), it's like double the health benefits. =)

  31. Summer tip--the warmer you are, the less hungry you will get. So, a good appetite suppressant would be to mow the lawn or play at the park. :)
