One word – FRIDAY!

It’s a rainy Friday here – in fact, the rain even chased me and my Mom down the street at the tail end of our walk! We got home just as the clouds opened up.

Friday also marks the return of the Green Monster. Gosh, I haven’t had one of these babies in forever! I made the overnight version, and per usual, it was so sweet, thick and creeeeammy.

Recycled pic because the Green Monster lighting was fussy today.

Hey – guess who jumped on the Green Monster train?? THEO!! Is this not the most adorable little 3 year old you have EVER seen? His Mom, Stacey, sent me this picture of him enjoying a green monster smoothie. While Theo is a very healthy eater, he usually turns up his nose at spinach. That is, until his Mom started making this beautiful, bright green smoothie that peaked his interest. Now he can’t get enough!!


So Mom’s out there – if your child isn’t getting enough greens in their life – give this smoothie a whirl. I know another Mom who has her little boy convinced these are milkshakes and even puts sprinkles on top! Hey – whatever you gotta do!!

Today I packed a lunch-o’-randomness. Cantaloupe, Rotisserie Chicken Rice & a Peach.


I think I might have already proclaimed this earlier this summer but this is, hands down, the best cantaloupe ever. I was in melon heaven yesterday!

I also packed a CranberryOrange PURE Bar.


This bar is bomb – love it!


Super chewy with big chunks of dried cranberries!


So friends – what are you up to this weekend? Once again I have ZERO plans…cool! I’m not sure how long this rain is supposed to last but if it’s still around this evening I’m thinking I’d like to go to a movie. Have you seen anything good lately? I heard that Ryan Reynolds/Sandra Bullock flick was decent.

OH also! I want to tell you guys about one of my favorite websites ever: 1000 Awesome Things. Basically it’s a site that posts one awesome thing about life everyday. Some of my favorite postings include:

#712 Emptying the recycling bin on your computer

#714 Changing the channel during a commercial break and then flipping back just as the show’s coming back on

#717 Sleeping with one leg under the covers and one leg out

#724 Placing the last piece of the puzzle

I seriously read everyday and I’m like – “YES! That is awesome!” It’s a great mood-boosting website, so I wanted to share with you all ;) A great Friday read if I’ve ever seen one!


What’s something that you think is awesome?

Here’s one: Checking out at the store and finding out that what you’re buying is on sale.
