Green Smoothie

I enjoy smoothies and I was particularly intrigued when green smoothies became popular. I soon discovered that I loved them too. They are perfect for breakfast (or any other meal), and I also like them after a hard workout. Not only do they taste good, they start your day off with some healthy ingredients. Through a little trial and error I have created my own delicious version. The best part of this smoothie is that anything goes...have fun experimenting on your own or just enjoy mine!

Green Smoothie
1 cup kale (or spinach)
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup almond milk
1 banana
3 frozen strawberries
Due to having a small blender, I mix the banana, kale, and milk first. 
This allows the kale to blend better, and keeps it from making the smoothie gritty. 
Blend away!
 Add the yogurt and strawberries and you are good to go!
So yummy!

Friday Favorites

Ahh Friday! One my favorite days of the week. It always brings a sense of excitement as the workweek ends and the weekend begins. This weekend I plan on watching the Olympics, catching up on some reading, and finishing some fun projects to share on here. Maybe I'll even convince my husband to do a little shopping with me :).
 Here are my favorites for the week! 
Sunshine and blue skies make winter so much prettier!

Mornings are always better with muffins and coffee!

My new favorite color, perfect for accessories.

Finally spent my gift certificate at an adorable quilt shop in town. 
Aren't these patterns so pretty? I just couldn't resist. Now I just need to find a project. 

What would you make?
