Things I Loved in February !

Happy Leap Day!!! I know that February isn't quite over but I thought I would recap the things I loved (and some I didn't love) in this wonderful (yet cold) month).

First things first...I don't know if I have ever mentioned this but I got the idea for "things loved..." from the fun and fashionable blogger Dusty from All Things G & D.  I just need to give credit, where credit is due.   On we go.

1. My new personalized necklace: I have wanted for awhile a necklace with Mason's name on it.  Well I finally decided on this necklace from this Etsy shop.  It was well priced and it reminded me of a Mason's name is on my lucky penny.
obviously it has Mason's name on it instead.
2. Easter Peanut Butter M&Ms:  I'm not a huge fan of chocolate (besides brownies) but one thing I practically never turn down is PB M&Ms.  And they are Easter themed so they are speckled eggs.  I heart them.

3. Breakfast Smoothies:
So I have been starting my morning with a smoothie.  My fave go to is an adaption of a ton of spinach-type-smoothies.  Here is how I make mine.

- 1 and 1/2 handfuls spinach
- a dash (yes a dash) of water and low fat milk
(i put these in the blender first so the spinach gets completely blended...)
- a cup and half of ice
- 3 big scoops of Vanilla Yogurt
- 6-8 frozen strawberries
- 1 banana

Also this delicious Healthy Peanut Butter Smoothie from the lovely Holly.  

4. Leap day:  How can we not celebrate another day on the calendar that only comes every 4 years.  It's an extra day!  Enjoy it!  *Edit* Leap Day has decided to dump a ton of heavy, wet snow on us here.  I am convinced that if today wasn't Leap Day we would be snow free.  (and not because I live in Wisconsin)

5. Searches that led to my blog:  I have the normal searches that correspond with some posts like 'German numbesr 1-10' and 'Ryan Gosling'...but the best one ever..."Barbie Garter Belt".  First of all I have never posted about any of those things.  Seriously.  Oh and why does Barbie have a garter belt?  or why is there a garter belt with Barbie on it?  

6. Ellen Degeneres:  I just checked out her book "Seriously...I'm Kidding" from the library.  I am on page 27 and I have laughed out loud so many times already.  Love her.

What I did not love:
I had to give up the Internet on my phone.  So that means not as many tweets and not answering your emails as quickly.  So I apologize...and i really wish i could change it.  Hopefully in the future!


You only have a few days left to enter my giveaway (aka 'The Giveaway of Choices')

Also I brought up the ask me anything the other day.  So if you have questions, post them in the comments of this post or any other one!  I would love to answer anything you want to ask :)

Because Shanna Said So

Barbie said...

That necklace is really cute! My mom has been talking about spinach smoothies. I hear they are delicious, I will have to give your recipe a try!!

Here are my questions: What's your twitter name? (lol) What is your best childhood memory? How did you meet your husband?

Katie said...

I still want to try that spinach recipe of yours...and I love Peanut Butter M&M's as well! Here are some ask you anything questions: if you could visit any place in the world you haven't been to where would it be and why? If you could redo one room in your house ($ is no option) what room would it be and what would you want done to it?

Girl, we are so much alike! lol. I'm not a fan of chocolate either, unless it's brownies or something with caramel in it! hahahaha

I agree, you wouldn't have snow if it was a normal year! haha. I always thought it would have been cool to be born on Leap Day... too bad...

Kodie said...

Yeah the whole part about us not having snow if it wasn't leap year...I TOTALLY thought the same thing while slushing my way into work this morning. This better be the last of winter! I'm ready for flip flops, birds chirping, and to sleep with the windows open :)

Ashley said...

Love the necklace! And thanks for the smoothie recipe, I will definitely try it out. Especially since I'm desperately trying to lose some weight (as you know), haha!
