My eating has been all over the place lately. When Carrie mentioned doing a cleanse his week, it didn't take much convincing. I told Celsey about it, and she got on board too. So far we've made it through 3/7 days without dying, but tomorrow is banana and milk day. It just might kill me! Either that or the mass amounts of water I'm drinking.

in what can only be described as the most
ben has basically known since courtney showed her not so lady parts that he was going to pick her. he's awkward with the girls (or women as he likes to call them), and never seems to know how to emotionally respond to things like i had an eating disorder, i'm falling in love with you, how many kids do you want. his responses are seriously so painful to watch. again, why do i watch?
due to unforseen circumstances, bachelor monday hasn't happened the past couple weeks. this show is way more fun to watch with people. bonny planned a bachelor viewing tonight. co-worker michelle came along. we had tons of yummy food and lots to say about the show.
my final consensus...this season has been super awkward. i never really liked ben, but i can't seem to stop watching. the proposal was one of the most awkward things i have ever seen. watching for the second time was even worse. i'm not even a little bit sad that this season is over. until may...

rommate nettie got a
i'm a little sad too. (is it ok for me to admit i'm a little sad all over the internet?). i met nettie and her family 9 years ago. we (along with her sisters who are now married) have been roommates for 8 years. that's a long time. you really get to know someone in 8 years. her family is amazing. they have included me in their family from the beginning. her mom introduces me as her adopted daughter. the thought of not living with a martin makes me a little (ok maybe a lot) teary.
just because i don't live with any of them doesn't mean i'm getting kicked out of the family. i spent practically the whole weekend with the family and loved every second of it. her mom said she would make my wedding cake just like she has all the other kids. they all asked if i was going to do the traditional martin food at my reception, and uncle rick even said he would make the drink.
even though i might have cried a few tears over not living with nettie anymore, i am mostly just happy. happy that she found someone that has been in love with her since day 1 who treats her like a queen. i'm extra happy that their new place is only 2 blocks away. congrats to the happy couple!
these crappy (caused by cracks in my lens) cell phone pictures don't do justice to the flowers. they really are so pretty.

being this age and single causes a fair amount of independence, but sometimes you just need a dude. after nettie all her stuff out last weekend, we moved the one piece of furniture we have left back into the corner and hooked up an old tv. nettie even said "you might have to get a boy over here." we moved all the wires and unplugged and plugged a few times before turning on the tv/cable to find it worked. while it's nice to have dudes around for lots of reasons, girls are pretty capable. Happy International Women's Day!
