Cherry-Berry Smoothie




Chris’ birthday was not the greatest.
He left and went to school at 7 a.m. then I get a text at 7:20 a.m. saying he was coming home sick.
BOO to being sick on your birthday!!
He took a 5 hour nap and started to feel a little better so we just hung out and relaxed and he rested.
All in all it was nice to spend the day with him even though he was sick! 
Yay for turning 25! 
In other news…
It’s another smoothie kind of day here!
Thanks to Holly, I have a new nickname Smoothie Queen which I like to think I wear that name very well!
This smoothie has cherries I got over the summer and froze them plus I used pomegranate juice for the first time to give this smoothie a little something extra!
It’s totally delicious, healthy and kid friendly. Plus I added some greens for your extra vitamins!
Let me just warn you now, I can't take good pictures of my smoothies! UGH!
Have a fabulous hump day!
