Weekend Plans

I am so thankful it is the weekend.  This was my first week back teaching after a two week Spring Break and it was awesome but exhausting!  Today and tomorrow will be spent lounging in cozy clothes, taking Yoga, walks with Finn at the park, lots of coffee and planing a small getaway for my husband and I next month.

Here's Where the Story Ends

It already feels like summer has come early to LA. Everyday this week, the temperature has reached 85-90 and I am loving the warm evenings to enjoy a drink on the porch with my husband.  My warm weather uniform is a dress, denim around my waist and sunnies.

Eyes to the Wind

Yesterday was the last day of Spring Break for me and although we only left the house to walk around the park and walk down Sunset for some delicious vegan fare, it was a perfectly casual Sunday and I loved every minute.

Tuesday Tunes: The War on Drugs

I am loving the new album from The War on Drugs (Lost in the Dream).  They sound like a throwback to some my favorites, Tom Petty and Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen, mixed with dreamy 90s guitar:: think Americana Folk Rock meets Shoegaze.  Whenever I listen to the new album, I also get "lost in the dream" of long road trips with friends, camping trips, truck stops and lots of laughing.  I can't wait to see them play the Troubador this Saturday!

Runnin' Down a Dream

I have been on Spring Break the past week and I must admit, I am loving the free time! I chopped my hair off and donated 12 inches (!!!), I have been working out everyday, our house never looked better and of course, multiple walks a day with Finnegan.  One more week of runnin' down a dream...

Saturday Morning Green Smoothie

Ever since we received our Vitamix for Christmas (thanks mom), we have been experimenting with all different smoothie recipes.  I finally have created one which I have found to be the most refreshing and delicious recipe, like a healthy getaway to the tropics.  It is a green smoothie and is packed with veggies and fruits alike and should be used as a snack (not a meal replacement).  Oh yes, and I always use all organic produce.

Recipe: *    
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup Coconut milk
1 spoonful Coconut Oil (optional)
1 1/2 large handfuls of spinach
1 handful kale
1/2 cucumber
1/2 apple
1/2 cup frozen mango
1/3 cup frozen pineapple
*makes one large smoothie-just double portions for two
What's your favorite smoothie recipe?
