Hiiiiiii! I feel like I haven’t talked to you in so long after not chatting until today. But did you see all the exciting news from earlier this week? If you need to get away in January, you can head to Costa Rica with me for a little food and exercise retreat! It’s going to be awesome. But if you’re not interested in spending money now, did you see my latest giveaway? I’ve begun my giveaway extravaganza, sharing a new giveaway every week, and I’m starting this week off with organic beauty products! And if you don’t want to wait to see if you won, you can always use the discount codes I’m sharing as well! Don’t miss out!!!
Get this guys. This weekend was the worst 4th of July yet. I either got the stomach flu or mild food poisoning. Friday I spent the day on the lake (not drinking) and by the evening, I thought I was going to have to throw up in my lap while driving. Then I had a headache, chills, fever, body aches. It was pretty much hell. Then my stomach hurt all weekend long. Today is the first day that I’m 100% again. Meaning I can finally eat again. I went days with barely eating anything because it made me so nauseous. It was terrible. Me, not eating? Demon Juli.
Why is it people always jump to the conclusion that someone is pregnant when they say they are sick? Sure, you can make that joke to a friend, but to someone random over the internet? Come on, man. It’s kind of a slap to the face. I had multiple people mention that I should take a test. I know how to handle birth control, you dumb head. I’m 27 years old and am about to head to LA to work with a designer to create my wedding dress. You think I’d make the mistake of being with-child in the meantime? Ahhellsnah. And if that sickness was an insight into what being pregnant is really like, I’m out.
Did you see how I slid that wedding dress note in there? Yesaaaaaah. I can’t wait. Once I begin working with the designer a little more, I’m gonna share it all with you guys! Even a video!
Speaking of weddings, I have one to go to this weekend! Dress up time! Last one of the summer. Boo. One of the trainers from our gym, the second one this year, is getting married in the mountains. They are having shuttles take their guests up to red rocks for the ceremony then up deeper into the mountains for the reception. We start at a bar at 2 before the shuttles take off for the day. I have a feeling this is going to be a very drunk wedding. Not for me, because I would be wasted by 4 if I tried drinking at 2, but for other people. I can’t wait to watch it. I’ll pictures for you.
Oh wait, before I forget, my upcoming cookbook Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook is on major sale on Amazon right now! It’s 48% off. That’s almost half off!! Preorder now to lock down this price because I can promise you, it won’t stay this cheap for long!!
