Occasionally in the morning when we're rushing, I'll make a smoothie for everyone. It's usually something I drink in place of a meal or snack, anyway. Today I made an Apple Pie Smoothie.
Leah can be picky at times and doesn't want breakfast at all, just cereal. Charles is the breakfast chef, but since he had to be at work early today, I made us both the smoothie with protein and I mixed Leah's up with some of her Vanilla Pediasure.
It was my first time making this one. There are different recipes but I used what I had. Sometimes I order from Peapod and their frozen Greek yogurt is really good. In my freezer right now is Apple Cinnamon Frozen Greek Yogurt.
I blended that, almond milk, and a little bit of apple juice together. For protein you can add whey powder. It is soooo good. If you don't have the same frozen yogurt, you can also use apple sauce or stewed apples.
So, as I'm working on a few of my projects this is what I'm currently sipping on:-) It will make a perfect drink for a party! I don't particularly like apple pie, but this I can do.
It's been a lot going on these past few weeks, family wise. Life can't always be rainbows and unicorns, I know. This little smoothie gave me an inch of perk though.
More updates and news on new products coming soon!!
Okay people, I have never ever worn rain boots a day in my life. This spring, they have become my new obsession. I figured I write this post after getting so many questions and compliments about the pair I recently bought.
Last month it snowed so bad that we accumulated lots of water and slush here in Chicago. One of those days it also rained creating ponds on the sidewalks and streets. I remember it like it was yesterday, because I damn near almost drowned and my winter boots were soaked. First of all, if you don't know, I'm only 4ft 10". This is the day I was possessed into wanting my first pair of rain boots. I apparently was not the only one with this idea because I couldn't find any in stores. So, I did what I always do and went online. 6pm.com is my favorite online shop for shoes and these are what I found...
1. NOMAD Puddles Herringbone
2. NOMAD Puddles CAMO
3. Chooka Top Solid Mid Gloss Poppy 4. Chooka Top Solid Mid Gloss Turquoise 5. Dirty Laundry Royal Orange Polkadots 6.Tretorn Kelly Vinter Salmon 7. Timberland Welfleet Purple 8. Kamik Naomi Wide Yellow
Oh, have you seen the new wall art print added in the shop...
I ended up choosing the yellow boots. I wanted to be different and wear something that popped and would make me feel cute, fun, and happy on a rainy day. Sometimes days like these can be so depressing and they definitely do just that. Every time I look at them I smile. They are also very comfortable which is another plus.

I paid 29.99 for them with shipping and I think I used a coupon code which took off $2.00 on top of that, but I can't remember where I found it. I have a feeling I will be going back for more...
