Because they protect Els-bels!

Green smoothie - weight loss trick

Disclaimer! Does not taste green! Even Charlie drank one yesterday!!!!


Hello. Do you love my no make up puffy eyed look? Gotta love allergy season.

On a non-sarcastic note do you like my pink polka dot straw???? Aunt Nancy got them for me from Sur La Table!

Every day I've been eating one of these for lunch. They're always a little different. For example, I used canned pineapple today but yesterday I used a tropical frozen fruit mix from Costco. You can really use anything.

Basic Recipe:
-1 cup of canned pineapple chunks with juice (not syrups) *note* you can really use 1 cup of frozen, canned, or fresh fruit of any kind.
-1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk or coconut milk (the carton not the can)
-1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt (greek or regular)
-1 frozen banana, cut into slices (tip, peel and slice your bananas before freezing them in ziplock bags)
-2 cups fresh spinach

1. Blend everything.
2. Put in a cute straw
3. Drink!

Sometimes I'll add a tbs or so of chia seeds. Today I didn't.


(ps - that's the same picture, I just took out my make-up-less puffy eyed face!)

Some wedding preparations

We are taking dance lessons. Of course Charlie wants to learn how to throw me in the air. We settled for dirty dancing at the end of the lesson.

I'm also losing weight. How, you ask? Well, I don't eat breakfast, and I have a green smoothie (will post recipe next) for lunch, and then a big dinner. Yes, I know, you're not supposed to do that, I have it opposite. I've tried that. Doesn't work for me. But I've lost weight! Woooo! 

In the mail today was my PJ library book of the month "Room for the baby". I think PJ Library is giving me a hint.

Look what Birdie "scent" me!!!! She's the best, miss you and baby!

Oh what's that? a scentsy BRICK the size of my computer. In love.
