1. Make more time for myself.
2. Read more.
3. Help others.
4. Be healthier.
5. Be more present.
6. Make real friends in the local area.
7. Help my Little Lark learn as much as possible.
8. See my family more.
9. See my bestie more.
10. Have more adventures.
I think 10 is a good number. I am hoping to work on all of these things in the coming year. These are all things intended to enrich my life.
And on to the bucket list! In October I only checked off one item and that was off of my Summer Bucket List; Summer Corn Pesto. I made this for a Taco Monday Pitch-In at my office so I put a sort of Elote spin on it. It was a hit and it got devoured. The best part? It was super easy. I used thawed out frozen sweet corn! I made the dressing in my food processor, and then tossed it all together with red onion and cotija cheese. It's sneaky healthy too; the dressing was packed with spinach!
What are your wishes for 2017? What should I add to my bucket list for the new year?

It's officially the month of new Gilmore Girls! In honor of this myself, my bestie Bree, and my friend Amber have put together a fun little countdown photo challenge to premiere day! Complete with the ennui that is sure to follow the day after we all binge it. I have this shared on my Instagram account (@PoisonMegz) as well and that, as well as Facebook, is where my photos will be. I hope all you Gilmore Girls fans will join me!

So as you may have noticed I love trying new foods. I also love pickles and all things British. Enter Branston Pickle. I asked around and was told that a cheese sandwich was the way to try this. I love cheese so this sounded like a plan to me. I used white cheddar and sharp cheddar.

^^I wrote that on Day 1 of the cleanse with every intention of actually writing after each juice, it didn't happen. I STILL have heard nothing back from Blueprint and it has been nearly a month, so I give their customer service zero stars.^^
I want to be clear that I am not advocating juice cleansing for health or weight loss purposes, I purely just wanted to see if I could do it. I am also *Not* being paid for this post or given any goodies. I paid for this cleanse out of my own pocket and these are my honest thoughts on it. With that said Day 1, Juice 1 started out with me in a great mood and high hopes about being able to complete a 3 day cleanse. It was a green juice, clearly labeled 1, and for a green juice it was really delicious. The coffee cashew milk would have been a MUCH better start though... still angry over here Blueprint. I followed the recommendation of starting each day with hot lemon water (a former habit of mine I need to re-start anyhow) and also hydrating with water, green, and herbal tea throughout the day between juices. After I took this selfie I walked in to work to learn there was no toilet paper and that the plan my supervisor made was to just not have toilet paper., because that makes sense? All this liquid meant I was going to be peeing more than when I was 9 months pregnant with Stormageddon dancing on my bladder so long story short I bought TP for the office.
Day 1 & 3 Renovation Cleanse
And that is pretty much all there is to say about the juice cleanse experience. Until next time!
