spinach and pineapple juice

What do spinach and pineapple have in common?

Nothing! Except the brilliance they bring to this quick delicious refreshing and nutritious juice!
{and maybe a few more things according to the links above...} 

I have made this juice every day this week! It's so good {for you} and easy to make!

{rough estimates)
6 slices pineapple (similar size to that pictured above)
2 {girl} handfuls of fresh spinach leaves
1/4 banana (optional--- I made it yesterday w/o and it was still delish!)
1/4 cup applesauce (optional---see above)
1/4 cup water

Blend till smooth and ENJOY!

4-25 (100 words or less...)

Our Wednesday adventures...

Nugget had her first trip to the library!

After the library, we ventured over to Seaport Village for some salty fishy fresh air.

We walked a bit, then nugget played in the grass...

hydrating prior to walk...

Off to chase the {dirty} birds...

So cute :)

A couple "fancy" pics from our journey back to the mommy-mobile car...

a quickie post rain

Possibly because it's a rare event here in San Diego, but a run after a rain shower is somewhat zen-like.
The smells.
The random droplet of water still spitting from the sky { or falling from a palm frond...}
The splash of my sneaker  {tennis shoe?} {running shoe?} against the wet pavement...

Let's just say I was glad I made it out for a quick { or not so quick...} 3 miler before taking the nugget to sign language.

Long story ... Short

Cleaning took a {hairy, scuzzy, filthy...} precedence over my run this morning.

But oh my it was worth it!
Nugget had a full day playing on CLEAN floors!

Feeling guilty later, I decided to check out the neighborhood track.
Did some laps and called it a day.
{ had to give the new running shorts a whirl}

The nugget enjoying CLEAN floors!
New shorts!!!

in a tub

Saturday I whipped up this awesome breakfast:

I just love feta!

A twist on an old favorite.
In a wrap!
 {and some balsamic}

It was warm for about an hour, so the nugget went swimming...

in a tub...

in our backyard!
She had a hoot!

Then the weather changed for the worse,  so we took a stroll...

from swimming to a hood!

the hubs knows his way to my stomach heart!

donuts + love
