I'm not a fan of mornings. Never have been, don't think I ever will be. I used to get tickets in high school because I had to park on the curb to make it to my AP chemistry class without a tardy. I iron my clothes and lay them out, along with my little guy's clothing at night. I put my make-up on in the car (don't judge). I air-dry my hair - all for a couple extra minutes of sleep.

I could stay up until 2:00 am and not get tired, but once my head hits that pillow, I'm gone. I thought being a mommie would change that, but I'm only a little more used to getting up a gazillion times in the middle of the night and early in the morning (God blessed me with a child that absolutely hates to sleep).

When I got a new director at work, I informed him that I would be coming in at 8:30 in the mornings because I don't function well any earlier than that. Luckily, he's cool with that. But I'm also the one that checks e-mail at 11:00 just to be sure I'm on top of things, so he's extra cool with that.

So, to my point, I've finally found the perfect breakfast for me (and anyone else that needs to get going fast in the mornings and stay full until lunch). I've kicked my Diet Coke habit and have switched to this little treat each morning: mix ice cubes, vanilla soy milk, one banana and a teaspoon of flaxseed in a blender for about a minute and that's it! I drink it on the way to work and love it! (My Orla Kiely for Target glass makes it even yummier!) Try it - you'll love it too!



  1. i also start my mornings with a protein shake... i feel like it's the perfect start... so much better than the dead end diet coke rush then crash.. ya know?

    LOVE that glass too!



  2. I am NOT a morning person either. It takes me a while to get moving!

  3. I don't do morning either..never have. But I can fake it really good..took years to learn but I have mastered it..I only use this on days that I have to work.. Weekends my husband takes what he gets..poor baby..

  4. Well now! My blender kicked the bucket last week, and I'm planning to get a new one this weekend. THIS may be the first thing I make in the new one! Thanks for sharing!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
