Or at least I was! Well may be not a liar so much... but I was trying to be someone I was not! Ever since I began my journey as a blogger I have had difficulty. Never knowing what to write, feeling that my life was not interesting enough to blog about; it has all led me to a ho-hum blog that very few people read. All along, I knew I was not being me.
I read a lot of blog. Blogs that seemingly perfect women write... perfect fashionistas, perfect moms, perfect creatives... or at least so they seem. In my heart and head I could not measure up. I could not make my life look as fabulous as theirs because, well, it wasn't!
If I am going to make a real go at this blogging thing I have got to me, imperfect me. The girl that sometimes does not love being a momma, the girl that sometimes does not have a creative thought in her brain, the girl that sometimes wears her pajamas all day... me.
So, I pledge to be honest from here on out and we'll see where it takes me.
The recent heat wave called for a cool treat. Since we are a no-dairy household, and I am personally trying to kick the sugar habit, the standard popsicle is out of the question.
Frozen fruit goodness to the rescue.
Here's how it goes:
Frozen fruit ( in this case strawberries and mangos)
Almond Milk ( for a bit of extra calcium and creamy goodness)
Protein Power ( we used a scoop)
Blend this all together and pour into ice cube trays. We used cocktail stirring straws we had sitting around as sticks.
Freeze and enjoy!
It's been rather steamy in our neck of the woods this week. The bean and I took this opportunity to get outside... in the shade of course.
On the blogging tip.... expect some pretty drastic changes around here! In the next few weeks I am revamping and creating a new direction for Darling Bean.
After a whole lotta sleepless night and sole searching I decided to quit my job! Being away from the bean everyday was killing me. I also have always known I would be happiest working for myself so here I am working from home... doing my own thing... scared as hell! AND SUPER EXCITED! Stay tuned 'cause.... I'm back baby!
