A letter.

Dear summer,
You have teased us here in Washington a few times now. Please come out soon! We'd all love it very much :] It is the middle of July and I have yet to wear shorts.. somethings not right with that. I think you can agree. So from every cold person in Washington... summer please show us! Pretty pretty please :]

Thank you,

The best breakfast smoothie EVER.

Right now since I am doing a 24 day challenge my breakfast consists of a meal replacement shake. By themselves they are AMAZING but I like to make them even better than amazing... what would that be?!

Usually I do all of this minus the shake with my muscle gain every morning, but for the cleanse I use only 1 scoop of muscle gain for some extra protein since I don't eat meat.

So ladies and gentles meet my favorite breakfast shake cast....

A berry or vanilla meal replacement shake
spinach (LOTS)
frozen bananas chopped up
frozen mixed fruit
muscle gain (vanilla is best)
fresh fruit if you have any (we have some blueberries that needed to be used)

Start with 8oz of water, your shake mix and one scoop of vanilla muscle gain.
Add in as much spinach as you would like. As you can see I like a lot of it!

Mix away...

Now you have yourself a nice green smoothie :]

Add in a handful of frozen fruit and a few slices of banana (make sure not to put in too much frozen fruit or you will end up with a VERY thick smoothie that you have to eat with a spoon!), throw in some fresh fruit if you have some... and mix that bad boy up.

All done!
Now you have yourself a very healthy, very filling and very delicious breakfast smoothie.

mmmm... so good :]

Happy 4th!

Hope everyone is having a safe and fun 4th of July!?  I personally can't wait for it to be over! Days and days and days of listening to fireworks is no fun for me.  Especially when they light them off till 4:30 in the morning! I don't even want to imagine what it must be like for someone with PTSD.. and when I say fireworks I mean the ones that sound like bombs going off. I do like the pretty ones though :]

Anyways, while I was searching for "God bless the USA" by Lee Greenwood (perfect song for today of course) I came across this little ditty! This was back whem American Idol was good to me, everyone looked normal still.. not like they were rock stars in waiting ha.

Strawberry Festival

My goal for the summer is to blog about things a little faster than I am doing now! We'll see how that goes...
A few weeks ago my mother in law, sister in law, two of the nephews, the sil's roomie, her friend and myself headed out for the strawberry festival parade. I haven't been in YEARS so I was pretty excited for this.

 Blue tongues!

 Courtney waving to the firemen ;] ha
 This was pretty cool!

 LOVED these dresses, so pretty.
Just for Frank... even though he doesn't get on the Internet much ha.
