New Favorite

Can I share my new favorite drink with you?
This is was is referred to as the Green Monster. I haven't come up with a better name for it yet. I tried a version of it a while back and didn't care for it. Then I tried it again based off of Joy the Baker's recipe and loved it!! I think the problem the first time around was using Nutella instead of peanut butter. Wrong choice. What better combo is there than peanut butter and bananas?

Those seeds on top are Chia seeds. I like to mix them in for some added protein, Omega 3's, and more good stuff. For the smoothie, I basically just throw in a handful of spinach and ~3/4 cup milk into a blender and blend until smooth. Then toss in a banana, a tablespoon-ish of peanut butter, and a teaspoon (or more...:)) of honey. Blend again! So good! And it's a healthy snack or breakfast drink. Try it!
Well I'm a busy, busy bee these days. I'll try to post again soon! Now I'm off to work! Have a blessed Thursday!!
P.S. Doesn't it feel like a Wednesday? That Memorial Monday threw me for a loop this week.

There are very few garage sales here in PA. Reason: there are very few garages. So here they are called rummage sales. I rummaged all over yesterday while Matt was away. Want to see my finds??
First up: tea towels! How cute! The blue pattern fabric is a table runner that may or may not live a long life as a table runner.
Vintage calendar towels! I see my dad's birthday there!!
Stationary. Only 25 cents. Lovely.
Bowls with handles. Perfect. Items in picture are larger than they appear.
Cute sunglasses! The only problem is I didn't realize they were bifocals until I got home. Bummer. Could've been cute.
Well...maybe not that cute:
Goofy. Oh well. They were only ten cents.
Pretty successful day, though, huh? The towels and stationary are my favorite. The whole day cost me less than 4 bucks! The only thing that could've made it better would have been to have company. I missed my sisters, mom, and grandma yesterday!!
