I took my wedding invitations to the post office this weekend.
It was like giving away a part of me.
A very expensive part of me.
But it means the wedding is so close (54 days!).
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I spent less than 24 hours away at Lake Erie with my fiance’ and his family, but it was well worth the 2.5 hours each way – a change of scenery (and
lots of too much sunshine) can de-stress like nothing else!
Thank you all for the support on my last post.
I think my mom’s reading my blog now (hi Mumma!). I still can’t come to terms with my family/friends knowing about this. I guess they think my eating habits are weird enough already and this would make them think I’m totally insane.
I know I’ve posted about watermelon smoothies before, but really, I’m obsessed. I took one with me while running errands Saturday morning. Simply watermelon, protein powder, almond milk, a teeny-tiny pinch of xanthan gum, and ice. No sweetener needed!
I usually don’t like the “girly” pink Steeler memorabilia, but this doesn’t count!
As much as I liked Trader Joe’s unsweetened vanilla almond milk, I think the unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze has it beat – much more creamy! I’m just worried that I won’t get through it in the recommended time frame – but then again I’m terrible at those kind of things.
When packing a smoothie to bring to work, I wanted to keep it thick for the 40 minute commute (plus I usually don’t drink it for an hour or two after I get here). I added some chia seeds and spinach to Saturday’s recipe before blending away.
A touch of vanilla, stevia, and nutritional yeast (just a pinch!) doctored it up a bit!
Cool, refreshing, delicious, and FILLING. I’m thinking avocado would put this baby over the top.
I have my first dress fitting today! I’m excited and nervous at the same time!
Have you tried a melon or avocado smoothie yet?
