Purple People Eater!

With Spring right around the corner, its time to start looking into the latest trends and let  me tell you, and purple is going to be just as popular as the variety of green hues we saw through the winter! Now before you think this is turning into a fashion and beauty blog, please be reminded
I spend my days in workout clothes and running shoes, take 10-15 minutes to get ready in the morning and my beauty routine involves brushing my teeth, lathering on the deodorant, swiping some mascara across my eyelashes, brushing some lose powder on my face and running out the door with the gym bag, water bottle, and enough food to feed a family, oh and some days I actually brush my hair! With my lack of beauty knowledge, its obvious I must be talking about something other than fashion trends, when it come to the popularity of purple....

Let me introduce you to the Purple People Eater! Don't worry, I am still on my March green smoothie a day goal, but decided to get a little creative and turned the green to purple. It was as simple as adding 8 frozen cherries!! Trust me, once you try the addition of cherries to your green monsters, you will understand how big a hit purple will be in the coming season!!

  1. Did not realize you did not like piano nor band. Who shall inherit the piano, organ, and all the other musical instruments??

  2. day one of the bootcamp - i actually did 3 sets. but the multitude of push ups was KILLING me! slightly sore but i know i'll be even more sore tomorrow. but i'll definitely keep this up. can't wait to see more workout sessions from you. and this is totally realistic in terms of being able to do a workout anywhere!
