This weekend, I was fortunate to spend time with family, despite the circumstances being sad. My great uncle passed away so I spent time in northern Iowa celebrating his life with relatives. There was a beautiful military memorial. A shout out to Meghann, Kelly, Monica, and Melanie for the blog compliments. It is great to see that my extended family enjoy the posts.
Today is Sunday, which traditionally is filled with church, relaxing, and preparing for the week ahead. This Sunday, however, I woke up extra excited because today is the day we leave for Savannah to see Evan!
My friends Nate, Sarah, Brianne and myself are all roadtripping down to Savannah, Georgia!
According to the GPS, it should be about a 17 hour drive. Yikes! We are all planning on splitting it up with no major stops along the way. (I’m fairly positive Starbucks will be heavily involved.)
I will update you all once I arrive and begin exploring. Savannah is supposed to be one of the most haunted cities in America. Therefore, we are heading on a ghost tour! Spooky! Beyond the tour, we plan on eating well and hitting the beach! Summer vacations are the best. Plus I will finally reunite with my sweet boy. It’s a win-win 🙂
Rewind to this morning….I woke up and quickly threw on my running shoes. I don’t normally work out on Sundays, so I knew if I thoughts about it anymore, I wouldn’t actually end up running. I figured the exercise would help with the long drive later.
Upon arriving home from my run, I blended together a quick smoothie before I began packing for our Georgia excursion.
I call this smoothie…Mighty Mango!
- 1, 6oz container of Stoneyfield Farms Organic Peach Yogurt
- 1/2 cup of frozen mango chunks
- 1/2 cup of frozen sliced strawberries
- 1 large handful of organic baby spinach
- 1/2 cup of organic vanilla soy milk
- 1 pinch of chia seeds. You can read more about the power of chia seeds here.
Doesn’t look great but it tasted like something orange julius would make. Yummm
I hope you have a great rest of your Sunday! I will try and update on Savannah ASAP!
