For the first time in my blogging career I wrote an entire post....that magically got deleted overnight. I'm shocked! Where'd it go???
Sadly, it didn't go anywhere I can find it......bummer.
Let's try this again.
Friday night Kyle and I got dressed up in some pretty interesting outfits and headed to his cousin's birthday party. Kyle was dressed as a gorilla.
Let me explain....
Kyle's cousin, Maci, had an "Old Hollywood" themed birthday party.
I snagged a gorilla costume for Kyle after Halloween for 77 cents and someone suggested that Kyle and I go as King Kong and that lady he kidnaps. I have never seen either version of King Kong so after a little google research we suited up.
Hollywood. She also made a special effort to add in some healthy dishes for the clean eaters in the group.
clean eating mission this week....therefore the cake was quite a dilemma. Cake? No cake? Strong? Weak? Yummy? YES!
In the end, the yummy won out and I thoroughly enjoyed a piece of cake.
Here's why I came to the conclusion that cake was okay:
1. It was in fact the weekend and we had eaten "clean" all week.
2. I love cake. I really do.
3. All things in moderation.
I don't ever feel like totally depriving myself. IMHO, when I 100% restrict myself from the things I love it's more likely to lead to overeating later. That being said, if I was training for a fitness show or some other event I would've resisted the cake in favor of the bigger goal. But I'm not...so I ate the cake...and I liked it! MMMMM!
Overall it was a very fun night with family. Especially enjoyable was Kyle hiding in the corner in his gorilla costume and scaring his cousins. Classic.
Have you been to a theme party? What did you wear?
Love and film reels,
Carissa & Kyle
