Day 10 and 11

Yesterday got away from me! So I didn't end up blogging at all- figured I would cover 2 days in one, today.  Let me update you on the diet.
Today is day 3, right?  Day 1 was was tough but I got through it, eating nothing but beans, veggies and some corn tortillas. Day 2 I cheated twice. For breakfast I had cold granola cereal with flax, oatmeal and strawberries.  Pretty good actually. It's the Archer Farms brand from Target.  There is just no way I could handle the oatmeal another day.  For lunch, I had these tuna salad wraps. They were SO GOOD!  Can of tuna, with a small tablespoon of mayo, TB of lemon juice, TB of capers, 2 stalks of chopped celery and some purple onion. I wrapped them in some boston lettuce. Delish!

For dinner last night we had these eggplant roll ups but instead of rolling them we piled the filling on top of each with another slice of eggplant on top, and sauce, and moz cheese.  (which is totally not allowed but joe couldn't find the non-dairy cheese they were calling for for this recipe.  The filling was onion, red pepper, carrots, sauteed with some sauce and mixed with cheese. We used a spaghetti sauce that had no salt. It wasn't too bad. Totally edible.  But then I got sick about 8pm. Like really sick.  Not throwing up sick but the other kind of sick. That's not a good sign. So maybe my body is cleansing itself with all this non-meat, non-fat food? I don't know. But I'm hoping I got it all out of my system. I did announce on my way out of the bathroom that I was NO LONGER DIETING. And he was okay with that. But now I feel guilty. Like I shouldn't let a little diarrhea stop me. I'm such a wuss.

On to the gifts, shall we?

Day 10 Group 1 I received this sweet copper toggle from Cheri Reed. I am always in need of a great artisan made toggle so I know this will come in quite handy in the near future!! I am seeing some of the other clasps she sent out and she really is a talented gal! Check out her blog!


Group 2, I received some great gifts from Rita of Toltec Jewels. She sent along  some sweet little Mexican ornaments, a handmade beaded snowflake ornament, and a Ceaseless Light candle - all sandwiched in between some festive pot holders! Thank you Rita!



Day 11 I opened up an awesome hand-quilted notebook with button clasp from Suzanne Reynolds of Studio Bibelots. It's got the most gorgeous colors in it! What a great gift, a pretty little notebook to jot down thoughts in, that will fit right in my purse!  Very clever!!!  Thank you so much!! I love it!



I also opened Francesca Watson's gift this morning and it's this awesome Swirly enameled focal! the colors are amazing!! Two holes on one side, and one on the other, with a slight curve, makes me think this will make one fantastic bracelet focal and I can't wait to play around with this!!
