So here's the thing — I am completely swamped with classes and puppy raising which consists mostly of cleaning up pee, poop, and trying desperately to get him not to destroy everything in sight (we lost a swiss ball this morning - sad), among a few other things. But that explains why I've neglected this sad sad blog. And neglected my friends. And family. And myself (I'm the definition of a hot mess). Yeah, weekly exams and the fact that I literally cannot get anything less than an A in these classes just take priority over everything else, including working out, doing my hair, laundry, etc. But I'm sorry to those of you who have reached out and I've been too frantic to be able to remember how to work a phone or shoot off an email or write a blog post. Starting today I'm trying to be better... except I have an organic chemistry midterm next week, so be patient with me. :)
Here are some puppy pics in hopes that you'll forgive me...
Ok that last pic is my new favorite green smoothie recipe that I wanted to share. It tastes like a tropical vacation and I'll take what I can get these days. Blend up 1/2 banana, 2 cups spinach, frozen pineapple, coconut water, almond milk, flax and chia seeds, and lastly... 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. SO GOOD. Also my skin seems to improve every time I start putting it in my smoothies or coffee. And I'm okay with that. Like really okay with it.
See... I'm already getting better here!
