MONDAAAAAY! Monday in the house. I'm actually super excited about it because, to be totally honest, I've been really looking forward to today: it marks the end of the busiest two weeks of my life. FO REALS. I'm not usually that person that's like "OMG I'M SO BUSY" ... but I've totally been that person. Normally I'm high-fiving whoever pins the "Stop the glorification of busy" pin. AMEN TO THAT! So while I hopefully haven't been glorifying it, I'm glad the rush has kind of slowed down.
WHY have I been so busy, you ask!? Nothing absolutely mindblowing/earth-shattering/bonkers. I told you guys I took five days in Southern Oregon for memorial day, which meant shorter work weeks before an after (crammmm!), then I spent this weekend at Indulge Conference — a food blogging conference here in Portland, all the while trying to keep up a social life (like every day coffee or HH with someone. at least.), and definitely NOT exercising enough. Oof. Am I complaining? I seriously am not meaning to complain. I'm just trying to wrap my head around how the heck I need to structure my life. The best solution I've come up with is that I need to be an early bird, which means being lame and end all social engagements at 10 pm. It really might happen.
Despite the busy May, it was a great month! AND I CAN'T BELIEVE IT IS JUNE!! I've been in my apartment for over a month now! I guess it's time to hang up some art, right? I did finally order a rug and some chairs, so people can sit when they come over! #winning
Let's talk about this draaank. This is like go-to summer drink city: coconut water (frozen into cubes), a few strawberries, and a few juiced limes. Literally, that is it. THAT'S IT. So, healthy (fo reals), tasty (duh), easy (yep). THE BEST. I don't have ice cube trays (errr not #winning) so I used some popsicle molds to freeze my coconut water the night before, then just plopped them into my Vitamix along with some strawberries and fresh lime juice. MOST REFRESHING DRINK EVAAAA. Besides this one, maybe. Maybe they tie.
If you haven't gotten on the coconut water train: DOOOO IT! It's so darn tasty, and super good for you. I'm 100% a fan. If I could drink 10 each day, I totally would. And then I'd be poor. Help me? Juuust kidding I'm gonna get a coconut tree and plant it in my living room. Duh. Solution = IN THE BAG. Just wear your helmet when you visit.
We're (I'm) getting weird, so I'm gonna take off. HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK! HAPPY JUNE! XOXOXOPrint
- 2 cups coconut water, frozen into cubes
- ¼ cup coconut water, NOT frozen
- 5 large strawberries, hulled (frozen or not)
- 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
- Combine everything in your blender, and blend until smooth! You may need to poke it a bit to get it all blended — it will be pretty thick.
