i actually wore this last night…and again today. that’s okay, right?

Speaking of tonight, Jennifer, Jay and baby James are on their way to Statesboro as we speak. We’re all excited for the Schenkel Invitational Golf Tournament this weekend, which is happening right next door. We’ll be taking pics (hopefully less grainy than the above – the photo struggle is real!), so follow us on Insta to get in on the fun. Happy Friday, and try not to get pinched!

friday five: green with envy.

It’s that time again!

Since we live near/have lived in Savannah, GA, St. Patrick’s Day is near and dear to our hearts. We won’t be making it down for the big parade on Sunday, so here’s how we’ll be celebrating:

1. Host a party: Don’t feel like venturing out to your local pub? Have your friends over and go green with your food/decor!

2. App: Channel your inner leprechaun with Irish Grilled Cheese Sandwiches from the Food Network.

3. Festive mani: We can’t let the weekend go by without a mani… This holiday sent us on a hunt for the perfect shade of green. Essie came through (as always)!

green smoothie.

Happy Wednesday, glitter girls!

Inspired by this recipe on Lauren Conrad, and emboldened by a hand-me-down blender from my mother, I decided to give smoothies a try. I mean, why not? Our immune systems are struggling this time of year, and we’re in the mood for a boost. After some experimenting, I came up with a healthy recipe that is actually pretty delicious.

Smoothie Ingredients
fresh, yummy ingredients…but how will they taste all together?
  • 1 cup raw kale, chopped (you can find this bagged up at any grocery store, even Wal-Mart)
  • 1 frozen banana, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup mango (you can use fresh or frozen)
  • 1 teaspoon flaxseed (you could also use chia seeds)
  • 1 quarter lemon, squeezed
  • three handfuls of crushed ice (or more, if you like a thinner smoothie)

Pulse all ingredients together until you reach the desired consistency. Done!

Finished Product
verdict: delicious!

This took like two seconds to make. It would come together even more quickly if you chopped and froze your banana and mango in individual portions the night before. Then, in the morning rush, all you have to do it toss, pulse, and pour the smoothie in your favorite travel cup and leave the blender for someone else to wash. 😉
