Everyday Enchanting (No. 7) + Whole 30 update

This coming Sunday is my last day of the Whole 30 challenge. I’m finding myself rediculously excited for it to be over and really nervous at the same time. I’m one of those people that does so much better at going cold turkey when giving something up, like with this challenge, versus having the discipline to moderate myself. My fibromyalgia aches are considerably better than when I started, although not perfect. I am a thousand times happier with how my stomach looks and feels then when I started. But I’m nervous that because I’m so excited to have a waffle, pizza, an ice-cream cone and a margarita (not all at once!) that I won’t have the discipline I need to 90% of the time make healthy choices. I’ll chat with you more once Whole 30 is over but I’ve definitely learned a lot as far as eating paleo style (which I honestly thought was for health nuts before).

Enough about me. Let’s talk about you. It’s always so fun for me to see your great projects each week at the Enchanting Inspiration party! Thank you for taking the time to link up… I’ve definitely been inspired, and especially this week, left hungry.


It was so hard to choose a cooking post this week because there were so many delicious sounding ones but I decided to hightlight this homemade marshmallow fondant because I’ve wanted to learn how to make my own for oh… forever. And as an added bonus, this one tastes delish. Pop on over to A House Full of Sunshine to read Karen’s post (as an added bonus she’s pretty funny too. :))

Bonus recipe:

This week I’m featuring a bonus recipe. For dogs. I am so not a dog person (they sort of scare me) but Elle is 120% into them and doesn’t care a bit if they lick her face or come right up to her (Drew  is a totally different story). I’d love to make this all-natural treat for some of my friends’ dogs, it sounds so easy! See the complete recipe from This Makes That.

If you haven’t see Jamie’s house from So Much Better with Age you’ve got to check her out. I love these beachy things that she just scored at Kirkland’s but even more than that I love her whole house. It’s too bad she’s in Canada, I’d love a real life tour. :)

 Crafts / DIY

You know I love a good makeover and you’ll usually find me using my Country Chic Paints on one but DIY Beautify decided to do a little restoring and refinishing action on the top of her table and it turned out beautifully. The number one tip that I took away from it was to WAIT WAIT WAIT before putting on your polyurethane…. hard to do for an impatient girl like me. :)

    Hi Jen, Thanks so much for featuring my homemade peanut butter dog biscuits. That was a nice surprise! Your friends’ dogs will love them and I hope your kids help turn you into a dog person. 😉
