Water for Elephants was great! I really enjoyed the movie (: Of course I am slightly snobbish and I say, “Well of course it wasn’t as good as the book…” Fortunately for me I read the book last year, so I wasn’t super hung up on the details of the book. R-Patt was pretty cute, and definitely not as awkward as he was in the Twilight movies. I ❤ Reese Witherspoon, she was beautiful and a great actress!
After the movie, I went with my mom to the mall to buy her some new running shoes. I hope these work for her–she’s on her feet so much & she needs good shoes! Then it was sushi time.

Between the two of us we finished five rolls. I’ve never eaten so much sushi. I had a little sushi belly bump! You can kind of see it in the above picture actually! My mom was amazed, she exclaimed, “I’ve never seen that happen before!” The only food baby I will ever be okay with are sushi babies (;
This morning I tried Julie’s Chocolate-covered Strawberry Smoothie Bowl. Let me tell you, it tasted just like a chocolate-covered strawberry. It was so so amazing! (I finally bought cocoa so I could eat this!)
|This was devoured.|
- 1 c. frozen strawberries
- 1 1/2 c. almond milk
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1 handful fresh spinach
- 3 large ice cubes
- 1 pinch xanthan gum (for thickening)
I did not use ice cubes, protein powder, or xanthan gum because I didn’t have any of those things. (I know it’s weird but we don’t have ice cubes at our house!) I wish I had the xanthan gum because the smoothie was pretty runny. Still delish though (;
Good news! Our big blender is fixed! My dad fixed it about 10 minutes ago (: It is a super blender that can puree anything and even make soups! I have new smoothie recipes lined up for all of you. Once my banana bread is gone, I’m going to make pumpkin bread with raisins. I am so excited.
I have my first day of work today and I’m
kind of really nervous! I hope it goes well. I have to mess with my schedule too, because I can’t work Wednesdays, and I need to move that shift to Thursday. I hope that everything goes well *crosses fingers* At least afterwards I get to see some of my lovely friends because they are all getting out of school! Today is going to be interesting.
Have a beautiful Monday bloggies! ❤ (Go see Water for Elephants!)
