I was so honored last night to find out I received the Beautiful Blogger award from the Dallas Celiac. It's hard to be striving so hard to have a voice in a world with over 120 million blogs (that was the last number I heard), and I was so thankful to get this from such a beautiful and strong woman! Thanks girl!
Here are some beautiful bloggers in my life. I'm so thankful for their silent support in living a healthy lifestyle, and their posts always get me excited about life :)

Today I decided that a) we are almost out of oatmeal, and b) I'm kinda tired of oats, and c) Nate got me a blender for Christmas, it was about time I make a smoothie! I've been reading about Green Monsters on everyone's blogs for a while now, and figured it was about time to try one myself (or what I think a GM is)!
In the mix I had 1/2 cup milk, 1/4 cup pineapple, 1 cup strawberries (frozen), and 2 large handfuls of baby spinach. I added maybe 2 Tbsp of milk extra to get the consistency I wanted:
I was pretty scared for the first sip! But it was delicious, and I really enjoyed the fresh aftertaste the spinach provided, too. I'll be making it again tomorrow, but maybe tweaking it to add some different flavors to it!
Also, I've been reading a lot of blogs talking about Amazing Grass. I'm kind of scared to try it because it seems pretty pricey, and I'd hate to spend money on something if I wasn't sure I'd really like it. Does anyone out there know how to get just a packet of it for a sample?
Snacky-snack is going to be yet another Pink Lady apple, probably with some almond buttah, after my run today. Can't wait! I love it when you look forward to food :)
Could really use some coffee about now, but I'm not sure what to get before I go run. I'm planning on running a little further today (yesterday I did 3 miles) before it SNOWS tomorrow! Gotta look fine for the anniversary ;)
What's your favorite type of coffee drink?
