Random post....By Jessica

I've been having a really hard time posting anything lately. Mostly because I don't have anytime too. Between being overly exhausted and complying to the demands of a almost 3 year old I haven't had the time. Jax just wants me to play with him 24/7 and he would be a happy camper, which I would love to do, but then how do I clean the house? Anyone have any suggestions?
I can imagine this is only going to get harder...32 days and counting people!!!
Here is a couple random things.

Baby Carrier:

My lovely sisters got me the baby carrier and all the accessories to go with it for my shower....But the hub had his eye set on this Phil and Teds carrier for himself, that can also face the baby forward....He tested it out, and needless to say that was a hilarious sight! Were a huge fan of Phil and Teds around here!

We will give you a real review on this baby carrier once the baby actually uses it:)

Breakfast Smoothie:

Nothing really sounds good to me anymore, but I stumbled upon this recipe the other day on the Oh She Glows Blog and we gave it a try...Wow it taste like a milkshake! I don't measure many things exactly as told so I just threw it all in. Even Jax liked it, not as much as me but enough to get some veggies down him without too much of an argument.


  • 1 cup almond milk, or milk of choice
  • 1 ripe banana, preferably peeled + frozen
  • 2 handfuls organic spinach
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds OR 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 1 tbsp nut butter (here I used Dark Chocolate Almond Butter)
  • 1-3 Ice cubes

I just used regular almond butter, I can imagine chocolate almond butter would be way more amazing. Also the frozen banana makes it taste a lot better.

That's all for now folks! We hope you have a wonderful weekend!



  1. Oooooooo...I'm always looking for another healthy recipe/idea. I just may try that, it seems so weird with the spinach in that mix though! Although, spinach is sweet. Have you ever made your own almond milk? Kind of pricey but so yummy!

  2. Jes- I used Flax, I got it at whole foods.
    Becky- I don't even taste the spinach! I was telling kimmi what was in it and when I said spinach she was like "ew" but I made her one and she loved it! It's so yummy...If I had an awesome blender like the vita mix I would attempt my own almond milk, but my blender will barely chop ice that's why I haven't tried it! I bet it's good though!
