Mean Green

For Christmas I got a BlendTech ultra, amazing, could blend cement, blender.  Because of it, I can get rid of our regular blender and some other gadget we have in our cabinet because this thing DOES IT ALL!  So instead of doing the fun thing and pulverizing a bunch of nails/screws/glass/rocks right off the bat, I did the sensible thing and blended the shit out of some fruit.

Behold, the Mean Green...

That's actually my whole lunch...nom nom nom.  Although, grapes with seeds really piss me off.

The Mean Green is seriously GREEN and surprisingly filling.  Wanna know what's in it?

2 cups (or big handfuls) baby spinach
1 orange
1 Granny Smith apple
1 banana
1 tbsp ground ginger

I used crystallized ginger, because that's all I had on hand, but I am going to use some fresh ginger next time.  Bet it gives it a little extra zing ;)

Since I didn't participate in National Margarita Day yesterday, I sipped on this and pretended there was a little Patron in it, and that I was on a beach with the wind blowing through my hair.  I suggest you do the same.

...although, I would not advise putting Patron in this for reals...barf.

Happy Thursday!

Life via Instagram

If you follow me on Instagram you've already seen all these, but seeing as how I have posted jack shit for the last month, you get snapshots of it all.  Fill in the blanks with your imaginations ;)

New Year's Eve Day, in the frozen tundra
aka Fargo, ND

Snowmobiling on a frozen lake.
Yeah...just about as smart and safe as it sounds.

Out on the frozen lake.
The only thing separating me and hypothermia/death is 4 inches of ice. 

Christmas Cactus blooms again!

We keep it classy in our house.

Sunny morning at the Distillery2520

The Texans fell that day, but we drowned all our sorrows away...

Red and sparkly...not just for hookers.

ROLLing in the deep...


She looks deceptively demure...don't let the eyes fool ya.


Someone's got their crabby pants on...
...wait, I'd like to go back...

February in Texas

Living room blanket fort, built by my 32 year-old husband and friends.

Squeeze of lemon, dash of horseradish - all good, my friends, all good.

He's into me

This only LOOKS like abuse.  She loves it.

BFF's since the 11th grade.
