Green Smoothie

So, on my quest to eat healthier, I found this smoothie recipe on Pinterest. Love that site! I decided to just buy the coconut milk. Because I don't have all day to make homemade and besides it would have been cheaper. So, that's what I did. But, I bought everything else as stated. Since then, I have swapped the organic yogurt for Greek yogurt and baby spinach for regular spinach. Again, it was cheaper. Also, I have added flax seed meal and honey. Although, you don't even notice the honey. I have added those last two because they are "fat releasing foods."

The original recipe is from the blog, Flour on my Face.

Here's how I prepare it:

1 cup of coconut milk
1/2 banana (original calls for frozen. why bother?)
1/2 cup Greek yogurt (i just dump a 6 oz. container in)
2 handfuls of spinach
2 or 3 strawberries
2 cubes of ice
2 teaspoons of flax seed meal
a couple squirts of honey

You can make this up the night before so that's it's all ready for you to head out the door. It tastes just the same.

I have been drinking this a couple times a week since the second week of May. I feel healthy and I do believe my skin is thanking me. I am on a quest for more vegetable and fruit smoothies.

Face Wash

Why have I not ever heard of this before? I have acne prone skin. Had it every since I was 9. I've tried every freaking acne face wash there is and nothing has ever worked. So, here I am in my 40s and finally my skin looks good. For three weeks now. I love it! No acne. No dryness. Smooth and healthy complexion. I really do look younger. So what is this? I don't know if I dare say. I mean why would I want others to look good too. lol. Oh, it is:

castor oil and olive oil
What!! Why would you put more oil on your face to help with oily skin, you say. I thought it was gross too. But since I have tried everything anyway, I gave it a shot. And I was sold on the first "washing".

I found this on a blog that I follow: Simple Organized Living. I think I found the blog on Pinterest. You find so many neat things on that site that you might otherwise never have found. On Simple Organized Living, the oil cleansing method was linked and referenced too.

My Little Girls Birthday!

Today is my oldest child's birthday. She is 26 years old. Not a little girl anymore. Although, she will always by a little girl to me. She has a lovely disposition and it amazes me how she turned out that way having the parents that she has. We are anything but lovely. lol. I am looking forward to watching her grow even more into the woman she will become. I love you, Patricia Marie O'Donnell, with all my heart!!

Thank You, Hubby!

As I was reading my posts in FB this morning, I ran across a link about dads and I was thankful that I have the husband that I have. The link was to a blog post, titled, Calling all Dads, from the blog, Dad Revolution. The post was about how the government census classifies dads and how society still thinks of dads as babysitters.

I am thankful that my husband has changed plenty of diapers for all four of our kids. He has made bottles, gave them baths, walked the floors with them. He cooks, does dishes, and picks the house up. He will do laundry also. He does have many faults, but, all in all, I choose to put up with them in order to experience all the goodness that I do get. Also, now that the kids are adults, they have a great relationship with their dad still.

Now we have 6 grandchildren and they all love him dearly. He gives them plenty of attention, kisses and hugs, and shares his coffee with them. Also, when I watch the kids for my daughters, I can count on him to help me take c…
