This past weekend I had a great time going to my alma mater and visiting with a dear friend that I don't get to see often enough. I even enjoyed sitting in the upper deck and sweating like crazy, it was the worse heat I think I've ever endured.
Then came my first Green Monster experience...
I'm a big smoothie fan, especially in place of a regular breakfast meal and finally have jumped on the green monster bandwagon. I have to admit I wasn't sure the spinach flavor would be masked by the other ingredients but sure enough not once did I taste it. I used this recipe but added raspberries, used almond butter instead of peanut butter, ice, and probably only packed in about two cups of spinach. Tomorrow I plan on adding more. Sure enough what everyone keeps saying is correct, no spinach taste. Basically for those that have never tried it, it tastes like whatever smoothie you were making just a different color. You could add spinach to any type honestly.
And lastly, the chalk board wall. This is honestly my first real attempt at painting walls and its a lot harder than I imagined.The second coat is officially up and I think one more will do the trick. Once its finished you have to wait three days for the paint to cure, rub a piece of chalk on the whole wall then your good to go. Can't wait!
What have your days consisted of lately? Anything exciting?
