Smoothies & Juice. That’s all I’ve been craving lately. I’m OK with that because there are worst things in life to crave. One of my favorite combo’s right now is kale, spinach, banana, peach, almond milk, ice, and a tsp of honey. I’ve been stopping at the Peach Stand a lot for their fresh peaches and produce. I bought about twenty peaches on Tuesday, sliced them all up, and froze them for my smoothies. They taste so much better when you cut and freeze them yourself, plus they’re cheaper than the store-bought frozen fruit.
I’m excited for the new boxes of apparel coming in next week. I have several new fall items, and I just restocked some of your favorite sellers. I never thought running a little online boutique would be this much fun, and I’m in love with it. I love receiving your photos in the clothes and getting feedback on what you guys like. Opinions are always welcome!
I also just ordered new stones so I can make more jewelry.
Another thing I’ve recently been in love with is Karate! I’ve already learned so much in the two weeks of classes.
After getting all the packaging done on Wednesday, I went to a baseball game. I love the night games because the dogs can go and it’s not too hot outside.
I’m hooked on True Detective. This show is freakin’ whacked out, but I love it. I think it’s crazy how they have a whole different cast for the second season. I’ve grown to love the first cast, and now I have to grow to love a different one. It does help that they are all Hollywood A-list actors. We are talking Matthew Mcconaughey, Woody Harrelson, Vince Vaughn, Collin Ferrell, Rachel McAdams, and more! It’s not one of those slow shows where it takes the second episode to get hooked. You get hooked in the first five minutes of the show.
Friday night, I headed off to cross fit and then went back home to watch more True Detective; the addiction is real. I picked up some juices for a little post workout while we prepared food for the grill. They just opened a new juice bar in Charlotte and I’m so so so excited to try it out. Buying juice is so much easier than making it yourself, but I do plan on dusting off my juicer and putting it to use.
Grilled sweet potato slices, asparagus, chicken, and onions.
Sweet potatoes: precooked in microwave, sliced, and seasoned with: olive oil, garlic powder, italian seasoning, onion powder, drizzle of honey, sea salt, pepper.
Asparagus: sesame oil, galic powder, salt, pepper.
Chicken: olive oil, Jamaican jerk seasoning.
Onion: olive oil, light soy sauce, garlic, honey, pepper.
Grilled food is probably my favorite healthy go-to. It may be a lot of work, but it’s worth it.
I stayed up until 2 am watching True Detective. These are the types of weekends I love. There was a baseball game at 11 and the team begged me to make chocolate chip cookies. How do you say no to fifteen grown men in baseball uniforms? I woke up early and picked up a couple ingredients.
The guys loved them and they won, so I think I have to make them again for good luck.
After the baseball game, I got cleaned up and went to Saturday mass. Sometimes it’s nice to go on Saturday night, so you can sleep in on Sunday morning and be lazy for a while. That is exactly what I’m doing right now.
We went to Portofinos after church last night for dinner. I ordered the Antipasto All’ Italiana and a glass of wine. Portofinos is so good! I bet you can guess what I did after dinner?…YUP TRUE DETECTIVE ALL NIGHT. I only have seven episodes left, so I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself after. I guess, get up and do something productive with my sunday.
