This past week has been so busy! I haven’t had a day to just stay home in what seems like forever! I do like staying busy, but I’m also hoping for some time to just relax at home in the next couple of weeks. The multiple laundry piles and my house’s overall level of cleanliness are both begging for me to hang out and tend to them! 😉

Part of what has kept me busy has been adopting a regular fitness routine. I’ve been enjoying going to Stroller Strides with some of my friends and meeting new ladies and their babies, too! It’s nice to have a healthy outlet to look forward to a few times each week. Plus, I ALWAYS look forward to one of these babies afterwards…

This green smoothie is creamy, delicious, and full of good-for-you stuff! I love having one after a workout, and I also like to blend them up to give to my son as a snack. It’s a nice way to get some leafy greens in his diet!

You can replace the almond butter with your favorite nut butter or nut-free butter. My son has a peanut allergy so we like to use almond butter and sunflower seed butter, but if you don’t have to worry about any allergies, good ole PB works deliciously well, too!
