...and it's only the 17th! Whew.
But I'm currently sitting across the kitchen table from my sister, who's in town for our brothers' graduation, so I'm feeling better already.
This guy also makes me feel better! Another sibling, this time the little brother Matt. We had a fun little lunch in Tower Grove a few weeks ago and I can't wait to see him tomorrow! Yay for passing Spanish, Matty! :-) Congrats on being a college graduate.
I've been attempting to make some yummy smoothies lately and for the most part, I've given up. The ingredients on the left looked promising, but turned out to be a chalky, slimy banana flavored batch of baby food. Yuck.
I am determined to try again though, with a few adjustments. Meg will have no choice but to be my guinea pig in the morning before we head to Columbia.
New and improved recipe:
- more spinach, a little less protein powder
- banana...this time frozen (pro tip: peel before freezing. made this mistake last week)
- more frozen fruit and ice
- almond or regular milk, whatever I'm feeling
Any other magic ingredients I'm missing?? Help a sister out. I need it.
I mentioned in my last post that this month is full of work and wedding stuff. That's been pretty darn accurate, but I'm okay with it. Cody's big day is SO close and it's really fun to see everything coming together.
My bridesmaid dress needs some work and she and I both need some sun-safe, tan-line-free bronzing solutions, but that's another issue. Other than that I think things are almost ready!
The bridal showers have been wonderful. I Her first one was on Cinco de Mayo-- that means delicious margaritas and shiny new appliances-- what could be better! I love the two families coming together and letting me tag along for it.
And on that note, I'll leave you with a shot of Cody's mom and grandma.
Sometimes in high school, I'd tag along with Cody to hang out with Helen (and get candy!). She's always had this amazing, light hearted spirit and sense of humor...it's so special that she's been able to be part of these days.
Have a great weekend and thanks for reading!
