summer and a smoothie.

i love this time of year.

i love long, warm days. i love the countdown until the end of the school year.

i feel like a kid again every school year as i am counting down the days to the last day of school. i have those butterflies of excitement. i can't wait to swim in my uncle's pool. i can't wait to visit the beach. i can't wait to go back to mexico... and i can't wait to sleep in past six!

i am looking forward to my "summer" schedule. no more lesson planning. observations. report cards. and teaching. just a mental break so i can go back to school refreshed and ready to teach new minds at the end of august.

tonight tim and i did our weekly grocery trip... strawberries, chobani yogurt, and bananas were in our cart to make my new favorite... a strawberry banana smoothie! i have been drinking these for dessert at night... it tastes just like a milkshake!

To make this smoothie:

six strawberries
one banana
1/2 cup of low fat plain yogurt
1/2 cup of low fat milk
1 tablespoon of honey
3 tablespoons of pineapple juice (optional)

Blend all these ingredients together with ice and VIOLA!! Makes enough for two... so share with a friend! :)

after grocery shopping, we went around the corner to chipotle... i ended the night with a chicken bowl...

and it tasted as awesome as it looks!

Happy Wednesday!


  1. Toss a tablespoon of Wheat Germ into your smoothie and you will up the nutrients and protein big time.

  2. not sure where the previous comment went from chill01 (blogger has been acting super crazy lately)... but i wanted to mention that tim told me to add this to my smoothie too! can you get that in a grocery store??
