A, B, C's of Thursday

Facebook thingee <-- for days when i don't get a chance to post or i'm under the weather (like today, can you believe it, i'm still sick, this is becoming a serious matter of life or death or the sniffles, your call) i have a pile of post drafts that i hit up to save myself from using energy best left healing my sad pathetic cold infected body from coming up with a whole new post and then i put quality explanations like Facebook thingee to remind me what i'm going to put there

So this list has been going around the blogosphere for a while now and since i'm curled up on the couch sniffing quite loudly in hopes BF will offer to pick me up some kind of extravegant sinful icecream after his squash game with the intent of shutting me up, i'm letting this list blog for me and i did include a Thirsty Thursday at the bottom but first off you have to read my ABC's because once you know my ABC's next time won't you sing with me?  Am i the only one that remember that??? Goodness i hope not, I remember in England we said the ABC's but we said them the way they sound like ah instead of eh and now i'm just nattering proof of prior mentionned raging fever which can only be cured by I-C-E-C-R-E-A-M!

Donna's Tropical Green Monster

The best thing about green monsters is the options are endless and this one is a new favourite, i'm aiming for a strawberry chocolate green monster next week, are you salivating? I know i am and the doodle is giving me a weird look like i'm taking her schtick!

BUT back to our regularly scheduled Thirsty Thursday and this one is amazing 


2 handfuls of Spinach (i put it in a bowl so you could see how much i usually use)
1 Soy Vanilla drinking box (because sometimes i like to regress and be 4 yrs old again)
1/2 Tbsp ground flax
1/2 Tbsp of chia seeds
1/2 Frozen banana
1 package of Vanilla protein powder
4 cubes of mango (suck on a 5th cube, you will thank me)
Sprinkle of organic unsweetened coconut flakes


1. Blend
2. Take pictures of doodle lounging on the deck
3. Decide your doodle has the cutest paws EVER
4. Drink blended smoothie with your eyes closed imagining you are back in Aruba on your private island deciding if you should read or nap or maybe sing your ABC's because don't you want to sing with me?

And now for a mystery photo, this is me enjoying what will be an upcoming recipe, hang on to your knickers its going to be a tasty one!

i look like a one eyed pirate here, a one eyed pirate rocking her new lululemon hat because she is in desperate need of a shower!

PS: BF bought me an Oreo Frosty, mmm mmmm mmmmm - no more whining from me, good job BF, my blog readers thank you ;o)

PPS: No work was done to the basement AT ALL, we did buy paint for the orange tv room though, yup BF thought orange was a great colour to paint the tv room, bachelors should NOT paint unsupervised!
