So, what has happened over this past week?

The highlight was probably my birthday party. It was alot of fun. Very sweet, very relaxed, and just nice. It felt surreal to look around at my friends and think that when I was further into my ED I would have never had the opportunity to be present with all of them. But because of the work I've done, I was able to enjoy myself despite insecurities. I felt BEAUTIFUL and HEALTHY. These are huge steps for me. It was impossible for me to even think of one thing I liked about myself months ago. Now, although I am still extremely harsh on myself and hesitant to feel positive about the way I am, it is getting easier to acknowledge my strengths, not just my faults.
And as for the tease I left ya'll with last week, the mysterious use of the carrots was.....
Carrot cake is my favorite by far, and I love cream cheese icing, so it was a treat to make it. I used Martha Stewart's recipe from her website.
Some other sweets from my party included:
|Dean & Deluca pink sugar sprinkles my mom got for me.|
|Chocolate-chip cookies baked by moi.|
|A glimpse of my house, decorated.|
|Presents from my friends.|
|Anthropolgie mug from my best friend, H.|
|Many different bars, new Bear Naked trail mix.|
|Tofu, Whole Wheat wraps, Amy's Tofu Lasagna, and Apple Butter|
|Coconut water, yogurt, Herbal water, So Yummi pudding|
What was the highlight of your week?
