I looooove me some chicken salad. When I was in college and I was just starting to find my own way in the health world, I started eating tuna salad every day because chicken was more expensive than tuna. Once I left college, I couldn’t even look at tuna again. I’ve bought many packets since and they just sit in my pantry because I can’t even think about that smell. So instead, I make chicken salad now! And it’s one of my favorites because I can eat it for lunch all week long. Yesterday I ate it with Simple Mills Black Pepper Crackers and some veggie spears, and it was the perfect little lunch! Any recipe that gets better with time is a recipe I can get behind. Also any other recipe I make. I gotta support all my recipes, ya know?

So I talked a bit on Tuesday about how nervous I was since I was starting my tattoo removal process on Wednesday. Well, first session is officially done! Yesterday I exhausted my body by getting a profractional done on my face then going to the tattoo removal place to get my first session done. Luckily, technology has come pretty damn far since I started thinking about getting this tattoo removed 6 years ago. And I thought the profractional was much more painful. My tattoo is about the size of a dollar bill and is on my rib cage so no matter what, it’s going to be painful. But this new laser she used only took 20 seconds. I took 4 deep breaths and it was already over! I’m hesitant to share the process just because I get a little embarrassed, but my esthetician thinks people would enjoy seeing the process since many of you out there made the same mistake I did. So let me know in the comments if you would like to see a blog post about it once the process is all said and done! This is my first session and I should have 6 total, and they are spread out every 6 weeks, which means I should be all done and healed by November. Ugh.

Let’s change lanes a bit. What are you doing this weekend? My husband and I are doing a little date night at our favorite restaurant in town since we keep having to push it back as different plans come up. Date night, boxing class, and more bathroom renovation shopping. Since we’ve never done a renovation, I have zero idea where to shop for things like bathroom sinks and lighting. And since I absolutely hate stores like Home Depot, I’m staying far away. I’d much rather shop through small businesses. Before, we purchased our fridge from Sears and it started to break down super quick and we could never get a technician out. So when we got a new fridge, we purchased it from a small business in town and it has been AMAZING working with them. Any small issue, they will come out and fix ASAP! I love them. So now I need to find a small business that does sinks and showers…any ideas?

Remember the days on the blog when I use to b*tch about dating and my sugar and nut butter addictions. Oh how things have changed. Now I’m going to hair loss specialists and tattoo removal professional. What in the hell? Time is a real son of a b.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Hi Juli,

    Yes!! Please share the tattoo removal process. I am looking to get scar removal surgery. What made you decide to go with an estatition instead of a dermotologist? I know tattoos and scars aren’t the same but maybe there is a similar process?


  2. I would love it if you shared the tattoo removal process as I also fell victim to a tattoo that I regret! Now that I know from your first session I could handle the pain, I am very interested in the final results. If it comforts you, we could all send in pics of our bad tattoos for support, ha ha!

  3. YUM! Looks so good!! And please do share the tattoo removal process! I love my tattoo that I got when I was 19… but lord knows that’ll change. We are 12 years in though and still liking. Maybe I’m okay? Either way, do NOT be embarassed. Share it, and maybe that’ll make other people feel less embarassed too! Because why should we be embarassed of a choice we made? It didn’t kill us. it didn’t prevent us from being awesome anddoing great things! This is just a choice too, to remove it. Power to you Juli!

    And yum again. my god i want chicken salad. My dog will go nuts when I make this. Also an excuse to make an IP chicken! or air fryer actually. still need to try your recipe… okay there’s my weekend plans. Wow. I’m really cool too. #thisis31?

    1. you’re lucky you’re still loving it, that’s awesome!! and that’s so true. i just have people say mean shit to me all the time so it’s always scary putting even more out there haha! thanks for your feedback Hillary!

  4. Please share the tattoo removal process! I’ve been following since you used to post photos of the tattoo and you have nothing to be embarrassed of and it would really help people. You are a gorgeous badass!

  5. Yes, I would love to hear about your tattoo removal! I have one I would very much like to have removed but scared of the time and pain.

  6. I also made the choice at a young age to get a tattoo on my side in the exact same place as yours. Not fond of it at all as each year passes and I’ve only had it for 10 years. I would love to know more about your experience! And, do NOT be embarrassed, this is just a part of life! I hope you love it once its all said and done. I vote they raise the age of getting a tat to 34….says the 34 year old 🙂

  7. I would enjoy seeing the process as well. I don’t have a tattoo and have second guessed getting one due to your feedback on yours. Hope your removal goes well.

  8. I would love to learn more about the tattoo removal process! The only people who can judge us for unhelpful decisions we made in our youth are people who never made shitty decisions in their youth (aka NO ONE). Also your jalapeno popper chicken salad is seriously one of my faves… this looks amazing too!

  9. Yes, please share the removal process! I have two tattoos and also live in Denver and have contemplated removing them. Both of mine are smaller than the palm of my hand and not on bone (at least I was forward thinking enough there, ugh) but MAN do I regret them and just find them to be so dumb now. Thanks for sharing (if you choose to do so!).

  10. Yes please share your tattoo removal process! I’d love to know what the full experience is like especially since I’ve been contemplating getting a tattoo myself but don’t think I’ll ever go through with it knowing removal would be beeyotch

  11. I just love, love, love all of your recipes, travels and life’s adventures! I share your blog with everyone who wants to get healthy! Thank you for making my world brighter because you are in it!

  12. Just one more vote for wanting to see the tattoo removal process! I have one in pretty much the same location as you and have contemplated having it removed, but just unsure of the pain, time and cost. I would love to know what laser they’re using on you that it only takes 20 seconds and is somewhat bearable pain-wise!
    I have another tattoo that I still love, 15-ish years later! So not all tattoos are created equal. 🙂

  13. Holy shit this is so good! I can’t relate to the tattoo removal (yet) but I’m 23 and think I’m closer to the sugar and nut butter addiction and whining about the boys I’m dating side of life. ??‍♀️ Thanks for the kick ass recipes!
