We went away several weekends ago. Great getaway. We had so much fun spending time together without interruption.
We had breakfast, lunch and dinner together with no fights to break up, no arguing over who sits where, no complaining. It was awesome. So awesome that we’re going to do it once a month. Mom….Dad…are you listening?
They so kindly watched the kids for us but I have no idea if they would want to do that to themselves every month! Haha. Nor, do we have the funds to go away every weekend. Sigh…how sad.
While we were away we grabbed lunch the one day while outlet shopping. While I was waiting for my food to be ready I was eyeing the menu next door. And the caribbean berry smoothie caught my eye.
I didn’t end up ordering it that day but it just sounded so refreshing. And Hello! I can’t wait another year or ten until I get back there to order that smoothie.
So alas, I’ve duplicated my best at home. I’m very impressed with the results. It’s oh so good. With the pineapple, coconut and berry flavors all equally shining I have no idea how to say which part I like best. So I won’t. It’s the perfect Caribbean smoothie in my humble opinion.
Now if only I could sip this poolside overlooking the ocean. Palm trees blowing in the breeze. Beachy music. Got my feel yet?You have any connections? I could totally use a girl getaway! I’ll make the smoothies.
Let me know when you find us a place, OK? Meanwhile I’m heading off to swim night at school. As close to paradise as I can get. Total joke!
That’s me trying to keep an eye on my 3 children in a very crowded pool. Best eyes are when I’m on deck. So, no swimming just sweating in an 90 degree environment.
I’m making it sound very fun,right?
