Mom Monday {Smoothies by Color}


It’s pretty easy to make a smoothie that looks, well unappetizing. I had fallen into a rut of making what I call “The Kitchen Sink Smoothie”. Basically whatever we had in the house would end up in the smoothie. Spinach and carrots, strawberries and cucumbers etc…This many days would end up as a brown really yucky looking smoothie. And while it may have tasted good, the flavors started to get muddled. So we are now on a roll with making smoothies by color. It’s so fun, and the flavors really shine with each version. For now I have been sprinkling the flax seed and hemp seed on our granola, or using it in soaked oats so we still get those benefits. One of my favorite secrets, great for pink or purple smoothies, is to bake a bunch of beets and then have them in the freezer ready to go. Then you just drop one in the smoothie and the color you get from it is amazing truly! Happy smoothie making, friends!

Mom Monday {Cinderella Movie Party}


Reminiscent of when I hosted a Mad Tea Party for the Alice in Wonderland movie, we are going to have a Cinderella Movie Party. I cannot begin to explain the excitement that is happening in my house over the upcoming release of the Cinderella Movie. Cinderella happens to be Piper’s favorite princess so this is pretty big time. In celebration we are going to invite a few of her friends over for a little party and then go watch the movie together. Here are some inspirations that are filling my mind right now for the party…


Friday Fun {a tea in portland}


The inspiration to-go pic for today comes from such a perfect moment I had in Portland last weekend…sipping my delicious tea, sitting in a window seat at Tasty N Alder, waiting for my breakfast, enjoying a moment with my husband. We also had some really good Banh Mi in the airport of all places on our way home from Portland. From one of their infamous food pods….so this recipe for tofu Banh Mi caught my eye…need to try! Happy weekend friends.
