Smooth-ie Kind of Saturday

When it comes to smoothies, I can be a creature of habit.  One of my favorites is the gingerbread smoothie!








  • 1 scoop of chocolate Shakeology (or any chocolate protein mix)
  • cinnamon 1/2 tsp
  • ginger 1/4 tsp
  • chia seeds 1tsp (add zero flavor/added for extra protein)



The other day on my lunch break I decided to head to Tropical Smoothie and try their detox smoothie…



It was actually really really good!  I was a bit hesitant because I didn’t really want it to taste well, green.  lol! 🙂

I liked it so much that I had to make one of my own!!




  • just over a cup of water
  • handful of baby kale
  • handful of spinach
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup of frozen cubed mango’s
  • chia seeds
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of ginger


I really loved it and can’t wait to make it again!



I spent Saturday (4/3/16) afternoon at the soccer field, getting lunch with family and a spur of the moment pedicure with the girls….. There were six of us! 






I mean seriously!  Is my niece old enough to play big girl soccer!!??







My nephew and his “I am not aware of you taking my picture Aunt Brandi look”  🙂





Oh!!  And I got a new job!!!!   More on that later 🙂

A lil eggs and a lil banana

Hi!  You know, I can’t even sleep in on the weekend.  At 5:30 my body just woke up.  For the love of Pete!  It’s not so bad though.  The morning is when I feel most productive and I am able to catch up on some things.  I also like the quiet time.

So today is going to be a busy day!  My niece and nephew have their soccer games and then my niece is having a birthday party at one of the playgrounds nearby.  I can’t tell you how into girly stuff she is right now.  🙂  She is so beautiful!  I know that my SNL and brother will remind her that it is the heart that is the most important.




Man, I can’t tell you how long this week was to me.  And what’s worse, yesterday was just long in itself.  Lol, I told my boss that I didn’t think that I needed to be around people.  She of course just laughed.  🙂   I was totally serious though.  It was not pretty.  We were down one and it was really busy with hard stuff.  Let’s just say that it wasn’t one of those “I just need to make a deposit” kind of day.  It was more of a “something isn’t right on my account” kind of days.

I didn’t sleep the night before, so I had to wait until I got home to run.  I walked right into the house, changed into my gear, and walked right back out the door.  3.35 done.  So it’s the last week of the September Miles Madness and I was able to increase my mileage every week!  I turned in 16.01!!  The first week I turned in 8.   Thanks Cait!!!


Still have some exciting news to share with you, but it doesn’t start until Monday.  I am however, going to share it with you Sunday night.  Pretty stoked about it!



Finally picked up some spinach!!!



It’s nice and fall-ish outside today!   Maybe a bit humid, but much better than yesterday.  It was near 90!!




What are your plans for the weekend??


Whatever you do today, I hope you have a great one!!



That’s Me Without You.

Morning!  I am so unbelievably excited that it’s Friday.  It’s been a long (and somewhat draggy) week.  Yesterday seemed to just drag on forever to me.  I even had a customer come in right before we closed with a pretty complicated issue.  I ended up being at work until nearly 7:00.  I also still had to check on my friends animals when I got home, so it was almost 7:30 before I walked in the door.  Ugh.  Long day.

I was also pretty weepy last night too.  Can I just say (sorry guys) hormones are the worst.  I watched Grey’s last night and completely wept like a baby.  Don’t worry, for those of you who haven’t watched it yet.  I am not going to spoil it for you.  🙂

I am off this Saturday and this is something that I am also pretty excited about.  I am finally going to get to see one of my niece and nephews soccer games!




I have a run scheduled for today and was going to do it before work this morning, but since I didn’t sleep all that great I am going to move it to this afternoon.


I love this song!


Have an awesome day!
