I thought I would let you know that I made a new smoothie this morning, it was so yummy and several people are always asking me for breakfast ideas so here ya go! This is high in protein and very filling!!

1 cup light choc. soy milk (you can use skim milk if you want as a substitute)
1/2 cup frozen mixed berries (bought a bag from wal-mart)
1/2 cup cottage cheese (I know sounds yucky but it makes it creamy)
1 scoop protein powder (I used vanilla today but you can use choc.)
Ice and blend in blender!

Yummy stuff. Try it.

Trip Report

So I thought I would report in blog "tag" style!

7 Things I loved about our trip to Puerto Rico!

1. I loved being with my husband and brother. They do tend to tease quite a bit but at least I know they love me even if alot of the jokes were at my expense!

2. I loved the sounds of the ocean. Every morning we would open the glass doors in our room and you could hear the soothing sounds of waves. Aaron and I would take jogs around the resort in the mornings, we found a great hill! We knew it was a good sign when I lost my Prescription sunglasses in the ocean and Aaron found them 30 minutes later! IN THE OCEAN!!!!!! That was crazy.

3. I loved the Ferry ride we took to the island of Culebra. It was considered the 2nd most beautiful beach in the world. I would agree.

4. The food was great! I was surprised at how much fried food they eat. The fried cheese with guava dip was delicious! As you can see we enjoyed some dessert as well one night.

5. I liked the hike in the rain forest to the waterfalls. It is so green and really not many bugs!

6. Seeing the culture was interesting. I was impressed with how many people were bilingual. The dogs there are free to roam, we saw gangs of dogs!!!

7. I really loved it all, it is hard to keep it to just 7 things. So this last one covers it all.

Aaron, thanks for such a great trip, Josh and I have made many fun memories and laughs from this trip, it is priceless!

I needed to just post and say that I am grateful fo all I have. I think we forget to be thankful on a day to day basis. We need to remember to say thank you to all the people we love.

The Routt family (extended family)and Sanders Family has had a rough week. We love our family so much and really miss being close to them. I hope you all know how much we think of you and are grateful for the joy that each of you brings into our lives.

Josh and I are headed on our very first alone vacation. We will be spending next week in Puerto Rico. Can't wait!! I will post when I return.

I just thought I would attach this picture of Emma and I at the Great Arkansas Workout! I was a presenter and she got picked to be one of the kids involved, way to go Emma!!
