I made a healthy smoothie that I had pinned to my food/recipe board! It sounded yummy and refreshing and easy to make.
All it is- 1 can of concentrated OJ
1 cup milk
1/4-1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 ripe banana
1-2 cups of ice depending on how thick you want it.
Then blend away!
The drink was pretty good. I think I put too much OJ in it, but it was refreshing. It's nothing exceptional, but it's another option for something yummy.
I did modify it a little. I added spinach. Everytime I make a fruit smoothie I add some spinach. It's packed with nutritious wonderfulness and you can hardly taste it. It turns your drink funny colors but it's so good for you. Like Pop-Eye says, "I'm strong to the finich, cause I eats me spinach!"

I got a job at Arizona Spine and Joint Hospital! It's not a very big hospital, but it's a great place for a brand new nurse to learn. I started yesterday with a class they offer to their patients about total joint replacement. I start the nursing part tonight. I'll be doing night shift at the beginning, but they will still train me for day shift. I want to do mostly nights, but I'll do whatever is available. I feel like such a career woman now! I'm working out in the real world! :) I'm really excited about this job and I can't wait to start being a nurse!!
The problem with getting a job is that now I have money coming. I prematurely went shopping. Sunglasses are my 2nd favorite accessory after shoes. I bought 2 pairs of sunglasses and 2 cases. I couldn't help myself.
More exciting news!!! I became an aunt for the 12th time yesterday! My sister Jessica had her 5th child! Congrats you guys! Her name is Anthea and she is so cute!!!

This week I chose a pin from my craft board. I didn't want to do anything too fancy cause I was feeling a bit lazy. I had pinned this card and it looked pretty simple. I just tried to copy the picture with what I had. I found some scrapbook paper that I thought was cute and went to work, while watching Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone! It's one of my favorite of the HP movies.
So here is the final project compared to the original one. I must say, I did pretty good. And Pinterest is a lot more fun and meaningful when you actually use what you pin! Until next week and next pin...maybe i'll cook something...
