When I was a kid and we lived overseas, vacation was always at least two weeks, if not more. Now that I’m an adult and B and I both have full time jobs, it sometimes seems impossible to even take a week off at a time, and with the boys’ activities that makes it even harder. So this year I declared it the year of the two week vacation. Even if we never have time to do it again (but I’m hoping we do), it’s been the best two weeks! We’ve had time with my whole family and time with just the four of us, and we have lived it up! We’ve put our emails on hold, went to the beach everyday for a week, and I’m halfway through my second book. It’s been a great introduction to summer!
Obsessed with my new reef sandals I picked up at the beach!
I loved the Hawaiian Loco line that I spotted at Uniqlo at Disney Springs! I picked up the Honolulu Cookie Company shirt. They do run a little bit boxy, but will be perfect for a fun pairing with high waisted shorts for summer, or pants for work in the Fall.
And finally, styling a coffee table three ways with 100 dollars or less!
When J gets up before all of us, makes his bed, and starts reading…we know it’s daylight savings week. Spring Break is here! The boys had a pre-break yesterday when their school shut down for the potential of bad weather. The joys of living in the South in springtime….and it isn’t even Spring yet! Here are some of my favorites from the week.
This is a really simple recipe that A and I whipped up this morning because he “wanted something CRAZY” for breakfast. So I made these smoothies that he ate along with some fruity pebble cereal. Crazy, indeed.
So here are your basic ingredients:
Milk, 3 oz yogurt, peanut butter, banana, and either jelly or jam (not pictured). A picked apple jelly, but I added raspberry jam when I re-tested it and it was good!
And you also need a blender. The most important thing to making this is to put the jelly or jam in first and blend it for a good 30 seconds to a minute because it will break down the jelly/jam so you won’t have chunks of it in the smoothie.
Then you just put in the rest of the ingredients and blend it up!
And while your at it you might want to get some for the kid yelling from the highchair:
And at our house we serve smoothies in Star Wars cups with neon green straws. How we roll, that is.
Smoothies. J approved. One toothy smile up!
And here is a little sample shot. The left is the raspberry, the right is the apple, and the recipe is below! Enjoy!
