Engagement Party!

One of my very best friends Karly got engaged recently so I decided to throw her a small engagement party on friday night with our close girlfriends. We had lots of food, wine and best of all FUN!

The next day I came home and there was a present with a ring pop and champagne in it, with a balloon attached to the present saying pop me! I popped the balloon and a piece of paper (and a million confetti hearts that are still all over my kitchen) flew out saying “I can’t say ‘I do’ without you. Will you be my bridesmaid?”

I am so excited to stand up for her next summer!

Healthy Popsicles

In the morning before work I love having a healthy smoothie. But lots of times I would rather sleep in to the last minute then wake up a few minuets early to make a smoothie. So what I did was made a smoothie and put it into a popsicle mould and froze it so I could have a smoothie on the days that I am running a little bit more behind then normal. The nice thing about these is you can pack lots of really healthy stuff in them and they still taste great! These ones have strawberries, peaches, spinach, banana, yogurt, water, juice, chia seeds, and hemp hearts.
