I've been trying to drink a green smoothie every day.
Just call me Kermit.
My current non-recipe recipe includes spinach, kale, cucumber, celery, a bit of apple and a few pieces of frozen mango and pineapple. I also add a splash of apple cider vinegar, flaxseed, Amazing Grass powder and water then blend with my NutriBullet (it's really fast and makes it very smooth, not pulpy).
Even if I eat poorly later in the day (which, hello, happens) I feel like at least I had my healthy green drink.
I don't know what the big deal is but Annelise has been begging to ride in the front seat, so last week I let her sit there on the way to dance (like a five minute drive, woo).
I was the raddest mom ever.
For five minutes.
Honestly, I don't even know what the guidelines (laws?) are for front seat passengers here in Texas, but I think she's old enough at 10 and big enough to ride there occasionally.
Says the 70s girl who rode in the front seat at five standing up and used her mother's arm at a sudden stop as a seat belt.
Annelise didn't have school Friday (let the church say AMEN) (but she still got up at 7 anyway, what?!) so we piddled around the house being all kinds of lazy (actually, she'd gotten her flu shot the night before and was running a low fever) before venturing out to Hobby Lobby for essentials.
And by essentials, I mean duct tape. She had tooth fairy money burning a hole in her pocket.
Saturday morning on the soccer sideline was brisk and windy, which called for pink stripes and blue polka dots.
As it is wont to do.
Annelise scored two (!!) goals and helped her team win their game 9-2.
She was, of course proud, as were we, but snacks will always be her favorite.
Breakfast for dinner is always a good idea.
And finally (the crowd goes wild), after two weeks of quiet car rides our radio is working again.
