In a Fog

Hello friends. Today I woke up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day. Then it hit me that my "stomach issue" was still not gone :( I don't know what I ate but something has not liked me for 4 days now. I've been trying to take it easy and eat bland not spicy food but nothing is helping. I think today I ate my weight in this:
and this

Not really sure what to do next. I've been avoiding dairy and wheat. Hopefully this passes soon tummy trouble is the worst.

Happy Monday

So I've been a total slacker lately. I need to kick it into high gear and blog more often like I want to. So for the last 2 days, I have had some stomach issues. Not sure if I ate something weird at the farmers market or what. I've been trying to be mellow for the last 2 days and not eat too much of anything so I don't make it hurt worse. Anyway onto more exciting things. First a shout out to Janetha! Congrats on your wedding, it looks like it went beautifully and your cake looked amazing with the hounds-tooth pattern. Love it! Can't wait to see more pics. So we went camping in the Uintah mts and I had a purse/cocktail party and lots of fruit to eat. Is it possible to OD on fruit? Well here are some pics for your viewing enjoyment!
