End of Color

 Via Eisman Design

We're at the end of our color month!  Tomorrow's theme will be announced and you will LOVE it.

Also, today is our beach day, so you'll hopefully have some rad pictures up.

If you ever wished you could tie balloons to your house to finally explore the wilds of South America like you've always wanted without having to pack one suitcase, you're in luck... it is possible. Well, sort of. 

All you need is a team of scientists, engineers, world-class balloon pilots, a 16X16 ft house, 300 balloons that fill up to 8 ft tall when inflated, and the National Geographic Channel and you're all set! Easy as pie. 

Setting a new world record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted, the entire aircraft from top to bottom was a whopping 10-stories high, made it to an alititude of 10,000 feet, and flew for about an hour. You can catch the full story when the new series "How Hard Can it Be?" premieres later this fall on the National Geographic Channel.

We won't be yearning for warm weather for the next 2 weeks because we'll be in it!  LA here we come.  The color of the trip will be skin, because we'll be showing lots more of it than we have been.

Warm Colors + Smoothies = Spring

We’ve been on a major smoothie kick and have been blending and drinking one for breakfast every morning. I usually do not choose to drink my calories (who would rather have a can of soda over a cookie?) but smoothies are the exception. I find that they’re a good way to get several servings of fruits and sometimes veggies. The usual is about a cup of frozen strawberries (I buy them fresh, when they’re on sale and stick them in the freezer), half a banana, 1/2 cup blueberries, a handful of spinach (you can’t taste it but it adds nutrients), 1/2 cup plain yogurt (less sugar), 1 cup milk. Sometimes I add in a little dab of orange juice concentrate for a zing.
The reason for this post? I’m wondering if you have any smart suggestions for different combos I can try or smart additions. Plus I’m loving the color combo inspiration. Shoot, am I getting boring?

5 oranges
2 lemons
3 limes
1 grapefruit
2 tbsp. sugar substitute (I use Truvia.  You can use regular sugar as well)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups crushed ice

Peel all of the fruit.  I know, I know, it's kind of a lot of prep work but I think it's worth it.  I like things pulpy, so it definitely made the difference for me.
Add all the fruit to your blender.
Blend away until smooth (or you can leave it a little pulpy like I do).  Once the fruit is blended, add the sugar, vanilla, and ice.  Blend again.  Serve, and enjoy.
