The Green Monster

Ever since my last attempt at a green smoothie, I've been browsing Pinterest for a better smoothie recipe. Breakfast is essential to my mood and mind function when I'm working, so I'm always looking for something with protein that is fast and healthy.

So I came upon this awesome recipe by Kristin. I wanted to try it because it basically has everything in it I wanted, plus she said it didn't taste healthy. The reason I was worried about that last part is that Kyle recently ate some Greek yogurt for the first time (which is a part of this recipe) and thought it was really gross.

Looks yummy, huh? So while making it this morning (and seriously, less than 5 minutes) I had to sample the Greek yogurt. I didn't think it was as bad as Kyle said, but it is a lot tangier. I know, yogurt is good for you, but I actually can't stand it in general. Luckily, you can't taste it in the Green Monster. I couldn't taste anything except the peanut butter and the bananas, and it was so delicious!

Representing Ferris State!

I can tell these are going to be addicting, but it's definitely not something I would have every day. Bottom line, though, is that I think you should try it! Spinach is good for you, and it really does taste good.

Ironically, this also happened today. We love to laugh here. HULK SMASH!

Celtic Pride

Since the death of my first pair of Skullcandy headphones (which got me through Ice Brigade and many hours at the gym, thanks to Kyle), I've been using the shitty stock ibuds. (Do you like the name I just made up for them?) They're uncomfortable, and they don't fit anyone. 

I ordered a pair of Titans for Kyle for Valentine's Day, and while shopping I found another awesome pair and decided to order them for myself. I love basketball, but the Celtics aren't my favorite team...I just loved the design!

I finally got to use them yesterday, and of course, they sound amazing. Kyle and I decided to do the crazy Hundred Workout, and I used my iPod during the running portion. Absolutely love them! They don't have inline volume control, but they're great ear buds for the price, and they come with the interchangeable ear gels, so they fit perfectly. You can find them on Best Buy's site.

Sadly, Ky still hasn't gotten to enjoy his ear buds. When they arrived, they did not have the nylon cord that the product description and photo showed. It was super disappointing, and we ended up returning them. So we ordered a Rasta pair on Amazon that should have the correct cable, so hopefully they will be here soon!
