By Far the Most AMAZING Smoothie I’ve Ever Had

We’ll call is a Blueberry Pie Smoothie. I started chugging this baby before I could even take a picture. I couldn’t control myself, it was like someone else took over… like I had an angel on one side saying “STOP!

Okay now that my very dramatic intro is over, I will tell you what was in the heavenly smoothie:


1 cup of blueberries (we have a ton from last weekend!)

In other news I’m so excited to announce my cousin Julie will be blogging with me on a regular basis. Her young, fresh, positive Texan outlook will be the perfect addition to the blog.

When do you tell someone you’re a non meat-eater?

For many of you this might be a no brainer. You might proudly run around town telling everyone what you do and don’t eat. For me, not so much. I always feel that I’m making others feel uncomfortable when I tell them I eating a

Back from Florida!

Oh, hey! Remember when I used to blog?

Life has completely gotten in the way of my blogging priorities and I sincerely apologize.  I sat down a bunch of times to write but then I did the whole,  “it’s been so long, I can’t write one now.” I did the same thing when

Things are not always as they seem….
