Purple Peanut Butter Pineapple Smoothie Monster

Say that 3 times fast.

I have a new favorite smoothie. I shall call it the “Purple Peanut Butter Pineapple Smoothie Monster”.  I was literally throwing things together that I had the other night when making my smoothie and something amazing happened.

Lately I have been feeling the smoothies, and I wouldn’t put it past me to have them a couple times a day. Maybe it’s the fact that summer is around the corner and I’m just getting ahead of myself. I have no idea, all I know is this one was a GOOD one. Here is the rough recipe, since like I said I was just throwing things in and not really measuring.

– 1 cup mixed berries

-1/2 cup pineapple

-1 cup greek yogurt

-anout 1 tbsp. of PB2 (Peanut Butter)

Blend it all up and enjoy!

I think I also like smoothies because they are healthy and don’t require a lot of effort, so there’s no excuse. Since this was my dinner, I also enjoyed some Snapea Crisps too for some Veggies. And MAN let me tell you – I love these things. I could eat a whole bag in 1 sitting. They are better then eating chips! Love them!

Please take not of the Mason cup…. GM..U KNOW! 🙂

On another note, I wanted to talk about my mood lately. I am trying to keep super positive lately. Forgive me if I begin to sound like a self-help book here but bear with me. I have learned over my 27 years that negativity just clouds up your day and your life. And it’s not even about what’s going on in your life at the moment, you can choose how you feel and how you approach your day. It’s not what happens to you,  it’s what you do about it. Think about that for a minute. I am so thankful and blessed to have the life that I have and that I have amazing support from friends and family. Living away from my family is hard on me, but I can still feel their support from miles away.

Just remember, You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it. I find inspiration in music and hope this song inspires you as well. And if there is negativity floating around you then just Shake it out….

🙂 Smile


La Camisa Negra

Ok first things first. For some odd reason, I have had this song in my head since I woke up this morning and I have no earthly idea why. I can’t remember the last time I actually heard it, but my brain is sure stuck on it today. Thanks a lot Juanes.

I remember talking about this song in college in one of my Spanish classes and just how discreetly vulgar it is. But if you don’t speak Spanish, then you would’ve never known. You’re welcome.

Anyways, how about a little weekend recap. Get ready because it’s super exciting. You might even want to go grab some popcorn. Don’t worry, I’ll wait….


Really Mom, cant a guy just rest
Another picture….?

Yep. that about covers it. There was no Cinco de Mayo fun in this household, no sir. My weekend was spent cuddled up with my boy Pumba, who is gradually becoming less and less camera shy.  I mean but how could I not resist taking endless pictures of that little face? 🙂 Even if he does seem to get a little annoyed with me.

The workout for today can be found on my Pinterest Fitness Page. It is an awesome workout to get rid of that belly – which we all know I can stand to gain in little muscle in that area. It’s from one of my new favorite trainers that you can find on Love her workouts and love her! She is super positive and motivating and I highly suggest that you scoot on over to her page and browse around. The workout is called the “Corset Workout” to help you sculpt muscles around your midsection, like a corset! (hence the name). Check it out below or click here to go directly to YouTube!

So here we are on Monday, the worst best day of the week. Push through people, we can do it!
