Happy Thursday! 🙂 Or if you’re taking tomorrow off like me… HAPPY FRIDAY!
I work in sales so today marks the end of a very long and hectic month and I’m so excited to close the month out on a good note… and then have a 4-day weekend to relax and enjoy the 70+ degree weather!
Yes, you read that correctly.
I can’t remember the last time jeans, a scarf and a jacket weren’t required on the 4th weekend in SF. Or when the sky was actually blue. And not gray.
Thank you America.
If it is fog free on the 4th and we can actually see the fireworks I will chalk 2011 up as the best year ever.
Well. I’ve done it.
The Chocolate PB Bomb in all of its $6.00 glory has nothing on the concoction I whipped up this morning.
Into the mix went:
- Frozen Banana (word to the wise – cut the banana in half before freezing it so you don’t have that inappropriate looking object in your blender)
- 1.5 c 1% milk
- 2 T Organic Creamy PB
- 1 Cocoa powder
- 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
- 2 handfuls Organic Spinach
Yes I will agree with you that the smoothie looks like ass. It’s a greenish-brown sludge.
But it tasted AMAZING. Chocolatey, Peanut buttery, thick and creamy. And saved me $6!
It’s also proving to fill me up and last me all morning.
And a full serving of greens too!
I’d show you a picture of it in an actual cup but I’ve been drinking it out of a bright orange Nalgene bottle that makes it appear even more horribly colored than it actually is. I really don’t think anything could make this bad boy look appetizing. You’re just going to have to get past that and take a sip.
The million dollar debate this morning is: iPad 2 or Kindle?
I have a vacation coming up in September, I ride the bus to/from work every day, and I am a serious bookworm (and not even slightly ashamed to admit that I want to re-read the entire Harry Potter series for the 3rd time after the last movie comes out).
In one corner… the Kindle
- Easier to read in the sunlight (haven’t heard if the iPad 2 has the glare problem or not)
- Smaller, more compact
And in the other… the iPad 2
- Full computer
- Sleek design
- Kindle + iBooks available
- More expensive – but fully functioning
- Able to watch movies, tv shows, etc
- Useful for travel
I’m leaning towards the iPad 2 but would LOVE to hear some first-hand reviews! Do you have either? What do you love/hate about them?
Off to finish out the month on a strong note!
Have a great Thursday!
