Aubrie went home yesterday to watch her sister Carlie perform as Belle in her High School Play (I am jealous...I wanted to go too!) That means that I am partying it up this weekend with some other sweetly sweet friends of mine!

Starting Monday, Aubrie and I are going to begin the Green Smoothie Challenge!
What is the Green Smoothie Challenge you ask?
Or maybe your first question is, what is a Green Smoothie? Let me elucidate for you (10 points if you can guess the movie quote!):
A Green Smoothie is a smoothie that is made with fruits AND vegetables (usually of the leaf nature). Thus, the resulting hue of the pureed mixture is green! I know, it sounds gross, but from all the testimonials that I have read online, and from my own personal sampling of the concoction, it doesn't taste that bad! And actually, it is quite good. :)
Aubrie read on one of the blogs we were perusing that one person lost 14 pounds the first week of the challenge! Woah! I don't think we will be doing that.
[Funny comment: When we first saw this post, Aubrie and I discussed how if it DID occur, we would be admitting each other into the hospital. Aubrie then stated:
You'll have to admit me...TO THE DRESSING ROOM!Haha, we thought it was funny, and now we quote it all the time. :) ]
We will have to get back to you next week to let you know if we:
- have stayed true to the challenge
- are craving any foods (aka, bread, peanut butter or desserts)
- have lost any weight!
- plan on making it the full 14 days
If you are curious as to what might go into one of these smoothies, here is a recipe we found online:
3 bananas1/2 head of romaine lettuce*1 cup water*don't worry, I thought it sounded barf-gusting the first time I read the ingredients (romaine and bananas...combined!?!?! GROSS!). But I am eager to give it a try now and see if maybe it isn't so bad...
Well, have a fantastic week!
Loves to ALL!
