I am trying my hardest to start adding in more fruits and vegetables in my daily diet, but it is not easy thing to do. The best solution I have found is to start making smoothies from breakfast. That sounds easy, right? Well, once you wash, cut, blend, all the fruit it can eat up a lot of your morning. My smart idea, premake them, kind of.


What I did was cut out all the time it takes to deal with all the fresh fruit. I know, you can use the frozen bag fruit and that works just as fast but I am all about fresh is always best. I blended about 3 servings sizes of smoothie, just the fruit, and stored them in mansion jars in the fridge. Now, when I wake up all I have to do is add a little bit of Greek yogurt along with a cup of ice = breakfast is served.

Heidi Cat was happy we were finally home


This cat is the hardest cat to get a picture of. You have to use a DSLR.


It is so warm this January my bulbs are staring to bloom


Cinnamon rolls, yummy


Still no one living in here, maybe in the spring

Project 365: Week 40 October 8, 2012

Sorry, I am late yet again on my post for Project 365. I have been a busy little bee lately trying to get ready for our trip to the Bahamas this Friday!


I forgot to get a picture on Monday but here is an extra from 2 weeks ago.


Going to work early in the morning, I saw the Moon hanging out with its friend Jupiter. It is very small looks like a star but it is there.


Been waiting forever for this movie to come out! We went and saw it opening night, so good!


My first time trying to make my own smoothie.  It was really good!


Homemade Banana Bread muffins, yummy!


WE went and checked out the new Trader Joes in Knoxville. Here are a few of my goodies.


Octoberrrrrr! It is cold out. Had to pull out the heater. I think Mr. Mal was happy about that.
