Sun!

What is this? I don’t understand. I haven’t seen it in months.

 

Remember how I wanted those flowers to live forever?

I woke up this morning and they looked like this. One must have tried to take the bridge. I’m sure it’s not the cloudy water.

 

I made another Bailey’s smoothie for a late afternoon snack!

This time is had cocoa powder and coffee powder. It was delicious. I mean, it is St. Patrick’s Day. And I’m Irish. And it’s thirsty Thursday.

    My flowers do that too! I wonder if they are looking for the Sun (not really around these days in MN!).

    OHMYGOSH Jessica! I thought you were pouring the bailey’s into the flower vase for a second!!!! I about died laughing when I realized you were just drinking it … which is super tasty… just not as funny as feeding it to the flowers ;)

    i bet they’d appreciate a drop though… =)

    I think I’m going to indulge in a little Bailey’s myself. I just need for it to be 5:00 first. Lame. Happy Thursday!

    I need a good smoothie maker. Do you recommend a magic bullet? I just use my blender and it doesn’t do so hot most of the time.

      I’m probably the only one who doesn’t love my magic bullet. I like it, it does work, but I prefer larger blenders. Sometimes I can’t even fit all of my smoothie ingredients in it. My larger blender broke and I haven’t got another one yet. I think it just depends on preference!
