Starting today, Ryan and I (along with a group of friends from North Dakota) are embarking on the Whole30 Challenge. 
30 days of “whole foods”. Check out the program at http://www.whole30.com/. It’s essentially Paleo. 
Ryan already woke me up this morning complaining about creamer and peanut butter (both not allowed this month). I don’t make the rules, RYAN! 
In the name of internet sharing, I’ll be positing occasionally about my food struggles and successes this month. AND! Feel free to join me! It’s gonna be a BLAST!? View high resolution

I know it’s a bit… eclectic, but I really like this Chanel gown Emma Stone to the Berlin premiere of Spider-Man 2. It’s so much fun! BUT I’m not digging her hair do’ here. Oh well, not even Emma can be perfect all the time. Need another example of an Emma fashion slip-up?

This horrible Saint Laurent suit she wore recently in London. I just… I just can’t even wrap my head around how horribly Annie-Hall-Wrong this ensemble is.  View high resolution

The last public appearance the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had in New Zealand involved police puppies. Adorable puppies are the perfect accessory for Kate Middleton. The royal family is off to Australia next. This, of course, means photos of the couple holding koalas will soon hit the web. Until we see shots of Kate kuddling koalas, enjoy these puppy pics. Awwwwwww!!!!

I’ve been trying to cut sugar from my diet, and it’s no easy task considering all the different foods it’s hidden in. There are lots of reasons to favor whole, non-processed, un-packaged foods. Avoiding added sugar to another reason to include on this list. 

This Jet Lag App Does The Math So You’ll Feel Better Faster. So, so, so genius. Luckily, Bratislava is a short 5 hour time change. But I’m happy to shorten the typical 5 day adjustment period.
