Channeling Martha

Now that I have a sewing machine, I'm finding it harder to shop. I pick up a top and may carry it around for a while, but ultimately I convince myself I can make it if I want it bad enough. I've done this a few times so far, but now that it officially feels like Fall, I've dug out my needles and yarn for a little bit of knitting. I just finished a chunky grey looped scarf {just in time to get a sore throat} and have a ball of rich plum I want to make arm warmers and a headband/earwarmers with.

Here are some other accessories I want to make...

We are never too old to make wishes on wishies. Or stars. Or at 11:11.

Fighting the icks and ughs

Migraine, tickle in the throat, chest congestion...helloooooo cold weather sicknesses! 

Since yesterday I felt like I have been dragging my feet and praying the rave in my head ends. My appetite went way down and all I wanted to eat tonight was one of my smoothies. I have been hooked onto the Green Monster Smoothies and here is my favorite combo:

frozen blueberries
almond milk
ground chia seed
plain greek yogurt
raw spinach*
{sometimes I'll add apple too}

*spinach you say?! yuuuuup. I promise you won't taste it as long as you add that banana! Mine have also never turned out such a pretty green...probably the blueberries that make it stranger looking but still tastes great!

Usually when I feel like I'm about to get sick, I head to my favorite local produce mart and get myself my favorite kombucha {trilogy or gingerberry}. If you haven't jumped on the kombucha train, I found the guava goddess to be more fruity/less severe and definitely let it breathe for a few minutes about you unscrew the top!!

Rest, eat cleanly, listen to your body, and smile!

Well hello stranger!

Well, I'm a little upset at myself and embarrassed in general I haven't done anything with my own blog for over a month. Total silliness. Although life has been a total roller coster lately, doing this makes me feel good, so I'm reminding myself to steal a little extra time to work on my own blog and my own happiness in little ways.  
I've also become consumed by Pinterest, and love that it's easy to find quotes and photos of things that make me giggle and add an extra smile to the day.
