“Schoooooool’s OUT for SUMMA!” 8)
I am so psyched to finally be on summer break – it’s been a long year, and this break is well-deserved, trust me!
The end of the school year came with a couple super sweet gifts from my students, such as my snazzy DD’s mug, some pretty flowers…
…and this really cute wind chime. How cute are those little bees?!? 😛
After getting the word that we could leave early today from work, I pretty much exhausted myself by doing the “happy dance” on my whole car ride home. This meant appetite = HUNGRY! I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted right away, so I dug into some Food Should Taste Good Sweet Potato chips (DANgerous!) & some Pineapple Peach salsa that I found last week at Target. (Yes, this was one of those impulse buys!) 😉 I probably had about 6-7 chips with LOTS of salsa – I <3 fruit salsa.
I eventually decided I needed something cool & creamy, so it was smoooothie time! I went away from my normal combos and tried something new today:
Blueberry Banana Smoothie
– 1 Chobani honey flavored Greek yogurt
– 1 frozen banana, sliced
– <3/4 cup fresh blueberries
– 2 big handfuls spinach
– 1 ice cube
The smoothie had awesome flavor, but I could taste a hint of the spinach today, which I don’t usually find with my normal green monsters. It was also a little thinner than usual, most likely due to the fresh blueberries (normally I use frozen strawberries). But either way, it was still super-satisfying and I’ll probably make it again.
On the side, I also had some carrot sticks + hommus – al fresco 8)
Can you see my shadow?? 😉
I’m counting this as lunch #1, because I’m already starting to feel a little hungry. I wanted to space it out that way though, since I’m anticipating a later dinner tonight.
SPEAKING of tonight — I am completely ecstatic about a special event happening tonight!! For some of the locals, you’re probably aware of the madness this is sure to ensue in a few hours down in Albany. For those of you reading from afar, I will give you a little clue…
“Motown Philly…“ 😉
I’ll be back tonight with a recap to end the suspense I’m sure you’re all feeling right now…mwwaaahahaha!! 😀
For now, I’m going to put my freshly pedicured tootsies up, and just RELAX!
Does anyone have any guesses on my secret event?!?!
