Ok, maybe I lied a little. I’m super busy and I have no business being here today, but I need to share my healthy Shamrock Shake Smoothie recipe, AND, show off my blog. It was redesigned spectacularly by J9 Designs and it still has that new car smell. I’m ENAMORED. I can’t stop looking at it here and looking at it on my phone. It’s mobile-friendly now! I’M IN LOVE HERE.
What else changed? The whole theme. Not only is it mobile-friendly, but we got out all the kinks and bugs, and updated the header photo that still had photos of my kids as babies. The new header is more about ME. It has me, my kids, my husband, a recipe/DIY, a pet, and travel. All of the things I am. Plus the new theme is called rainbow sprinkles. SO IN LOVE. I’m serious.
I made this last year but it still holds up. I never got the chance to post it last year so I’m thrilled I could do so today. And with my new font and everything! I’ll probably keep cleaning up house around here but for now, I’m enjoying my new toy. I keep smiling. I wish I could hug my blog.

Makes 2 small smoothies because it’s a perfect drink to share!
LOVE. I tell ya. My kids are making leprechaun traps. Lucky Charms have been purchased. My leggings have a shamrock pattern. It’s beginning to look a lot like St. Patrick’s Day ’round here!
