weekend things

home and delicious | for the love of designa few random thoughts for your saturday:

it’s finally spring! although we are supposed to be getting some snow today, i can see the light at the end of this cold, dark tunnel.

i’ve been bunny-sitting for a friend while she’s on her honeymoon and i’ve learned several things from this experience: 1. i never knew how great bunnies were as pets. they’re basically just incredibly low maintenance dogs, who knew? and 2. i’m going to need either a roommate or a pet of my own after this little bunny leaves me because i’ve really enjoyed having another life in this apartment of mine.

i recently started reading this book and it is awesome, you guys. i don’t eat many grains or legumes to begin with, so i decided to cut those, sugar and dairy out of my diet cold turkey for 30 days. i’m on day 10 and while i know my body is still feeling a little funky because it’s adjusting to this new way of life, i feel mostly good. the sugar is definitely the part i struggle with the most. donuts have been on my mind 92% of every day so far. hoping those thoughts go away in the very near future. have any of you successfully completed the whole30 or 21 day sugar detox? i would love any tips and tricks you may have to offer on how you dealt with the sugar cravings.

on a different note, are you familiar with home and delicious? it’s an online publication created by an icelandic husband and wife duo with the most GORGEOUS home design and food images. it has fast become one of my favorite e-mags.

lastly, i’m sure you’re all aware now that google reader will be no more starting july 1st (sad). if you haven’t decided what road to take to continue reading the blogs you love, i have two great options for you.

1. bloglovin – i’ve used this platform for years and it has never let me down. you can follow me on bloglovin right here.
2. feedly – i recently switched over to feedly because it’s just a clean and beautiful way to read blogs. see what i mean?

both are user-friendly and easy on the eyes. are there any other rss readers you use and love?

i’m going to spend my morning running errands before the snow hits and after that i plan on cozying up on my couch with a cup of tea and my sketchbook. wishing you a relaxing weekend, friends.
