Birthday Give-Away Week

Happy Marathon Monday!!!

Thank you for all of your kind words and praise from yesterday’s race. I am still on cloud 9!!! As asked I will be doing some posts soon about my track workouts and how I have gotten speedy 🙂

Guess what? A year ago today I was in Boston ready to run the most incredible race of my life!! If you missed my Boston Race Recap, I added it as one of my tabs on my banner. Check it out!

Good Luck to everyone running!!!


I decided to break out the juicer this morning to try a new smoothie recipe from Cooking Light, the Carrot, Apple, and Ginger Refresher. Minus the Ginger.


I also added Fage instead of vanilla yogurt.


I juiced up 1/2 cup of carrot juice.



Then into the Vita-Mix I added:

  • 1/2 cup carrot juice
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup Fage (any Greek yogurt would do)
  • 1 tsp of fresh lime juice
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup of ice


MMMMM this was amazing, the perfect amount of sweetness and so refreshing!


In other news:

OpenSky is doing their own Earth Week celebration. 15% of all OpenSky’s profits will be donated to Waterkeeper Alliance, an organization dedicated to preserving and protecting water from polluters! Yeah for cleaner water!

Also, if you purchase any of the green products from this page during Earth Week, you’ll receive a complimentary storybook featuring us sellers and be entered to win free beauty set from Sweet P’s in the fragrance of your choice. The gift set includes an Organic Sun Block, Hand & Body Wash, Therapeutic Bath Salts, Organic Hand & Body Lotion & Hand & Body Whip – all organic, toxic-free and packaged in recycled materials :)

A product that I just added to my shop and absolutely love is the Envitote!


It has this nice strap that is actually really strong so you can carry it on your shoulder.


It also has to handles on the side as well and a sturdy bottom. Go Green!


In action!



There is a lot of fun that is going to be happening here at NHS this week. In honor of my Birthday tomorrow (yes this is my last day of being 27 🙁 ) I am going to be giving something away EVERYDAY!! So make sure you stop by later, because you won’t want to miss my first give-away of the week 🙂
