Green Summer Smoothie

I realize I never gave you my weekend recap LAST weekend. We got back Monday night and the week just sort of caught right up with me. I mean really, where are these weeks going? FLYING BY. Well, now that another weekend has passed, why not go back in time and chat about the previous one, right? Right!

We went to Toronto to visit Mike’s family and to celebrate his grandma (bubbie)’s 90th birthday. What a milestone! We had fun family dinners and a nice big brunch to celebrate 90 amazing years.

We spent time with Mike’s cousins, and went to his cousin Zoe’s new home (congrats, you two)!  I love love love going to Toronto to visit! So many amazing people to see in always too short of an amount of time. Zoe’s new company, Schmooz, is all about connecting brands with social media, which is obviously right up my alley. Canada friends & brands— I highly recommend Schmooz for your business! While in Toronto we also got to spend some time with Davida from The Healthy Maven, who I’ve been great friends with since we met (e-met first, then met in real life later). I love love love spending time with her and her boyfriend, and the four of us just have the best time!

Now we’re back to this weekend and we laid low here in Boston! I hope you had an amazing weekend and I say we kickstart the day with a really really good GREEN SMOOTHIE.

You guys, I LOVE this smoothie. I first tried a variation of it from my local Whole Foods and thought about it way too much for days after. Naturally I needed to make my own little version of it.
