Summertime is always the busy time.  We have had quite a few highlights so far in July.

I did a massive clean out of my closet which was much needed.  I think I still have more to clean out, but I feel like my life is a little more in order now. This isn't even all of it, but a huge trunk load made the journey to Goodwill this weekend.  I just read the book The Life Changing Art of Tidying Up. It was a quick read, but really good.  It really inspired me to live more minimally which is much harder than it looks even though we only have a 1 bedroom apartment!

We did the Lincoln Park Food Tour with Kyle's family and that was so much fun.  The food was delicious and they were very accommodating of our recent gluten free lifestyle.  I wish I would have had pictures from all 6 of the stop, but was too distracted by the delicisou food to remember to take a picture. These cupcakes are from Swirlz which is apparently the largest specialty cupcake shop.  They even had gluten free and vegan options that were delicious!

On that note -- In the last few weeks we decided the start juicing!  We have watched Fat Sick and Nearly Dead one too many times and we are hooked.  If you haven't seen it, it's a documentary about an overweight guy who decides to do a 60 day juice only cleanse while traveling across the USA interviewing people about their diets, food they eat, and weight.  We finally had heard enough and went to Bed Bath and Beyond and bought a fancy juicer and we have been juicing ever since!  It is a lot more work than we realized, but surprisingly all of the fresh vegetable aren't as expensive as we were expecting.  I usually have the juice for breakfast along with a banana with peanut butter and I feel much more energized. We have only been doing it for 2 week so I'll update my thoughts again after a few months.

Don't mind the beer can and chocolate in the middle of our juicing party. We wouldn't want to be too healthy. :)

We made a quick trip to Santa Fe, NM last weekend with Kyle's family. It was such a quick trip I didn't get to take many pictures, but we ate a lot of great food, went white water rafting and did some sight seeing.  We staying at the Santa Fe Hilton Buffalo Thunder Resort, which was huge!  They had a massive casino, night clubs, a few restaurants, spa, indoor pool and outdoor pool.  It was a really great place for the family reunion since there was plenty to do for all ages. Santa Fe was a really cool city and the landscape was just gorgeous!

We are headed to Iowa this weekend to see my family and celebrate my sisters birthday!  It should be a great weekend and hopefully the weather doesn't get too steamy for us!
