Matcha Pink Drink Smoothie

This looks so amazing, can’t wait to try this!! Shakeology is already delicious and mega nutritious, but they added Matcha to this recipe. Whoa, who needs Starbucks fancy drinks that have zero nutritional value and hello to my new healthy summer drink of choice!

Matcha Fact: “Among antioxidants, catechins are the most potent and beneficial. One specific catechin called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) makes up 60% of the catechins in Matcha Green Tea. Out of all the antioxidants, EGCg is the most widely recognized for its cancer fighting properties.”

This Sunday’s Blog Share (a lil late) – The 4 Stages of Expat Island Life


Keith and I are hoping to move to Hawaii for at least a couple years (maybe sooner than later) and so I’m drinking up all I can about island life and relocating to a new area. And also on our list for maybe someday is to move to an island outside the USA. My mentor Amy Silverman moved to Puerto Rico to be able to live an island lifestyle and to me it breathes perfect life. I’m an island girl at heart, and the beach is where I want to sink my toes into and the ocean calls my name!

So I love seeing blogs like this that will help prep us for island life and maybe living outside the USA some day (we want to live a lot of places for short amounts of time until we find “home”)! Thanks to Women Who Live On Rocks for this great blog!

“Island expat life teaches you not only about a new country, but a lot about yourself.”

Post Weekend Blog – Team RWB Volunteers – Valor Run: Valor Knows No Gender

18582354_10213373920002303_6602708118059855414_nxxx Sunday we started the day earlllly and were out the door by 6am!. That’s early for me on a weekday, let alone a weekend. But as volunteer and runners, guess what, they usually happen earlllly in the morning! Especially when you volunteer because you have to be there before the race starts to set up.

Keith and I were manning/running a water stop for the Valor Run: Valor Knows No Gender , repping Team RWB Hampton Roads. It was perfect weather for a race and to volunteer.  I’m proud of our runners we (the RWB) had out there running and rucking, and proud of our team that stood by to help the runners re-fuel, re-hydrate and offer first aid if needed!

Post Weekend Blog – Take me out to the ballgame

18556189_10213359867250993_6379473785568943885_nGood fun with good friends! Norfolk Tides!! I’ve loved baseball since I was a wee little girl.  There’s something about the smells, the field, and the sounds of the announcer and bats cracking the ball, umpires yelling strike that just hearkens back to a simpler time.


And it was apparently a night when our husbands all decided it was look silly and make faces night. So yeah, going to a baseball game is kinda like going to disney, everyone’s a kid again!




It was so cold! Oh my gosh, it’s nearly June and we were freezing by the end of the game! But it was fun and the Tides cam from behind for a big 9th inning comeback win! Plus it was a fireworks night!!!


💛 Friendship 💛

Post Weekend Blog – Hands Across The Sand

18588934_1314472921939746_6418179450578168124_oWow, we had a super busy weekend! And this is how Saturday began, Hands across The Sand at the Virginia Beach oceanfront with Oceana Virginia , Chesapeake Bay Group -Sierra ClubMothers Out Front – Mobilizing for a Livable Climate, Surfrider VB, several more climate/environmental organizations and hundreds of concerned citizens and activists. Our goal is awareness –  🚫Don’t Drill VA!

Caroline Wood – Oceana

We had an amazing turnout! We drew a human line in the sand in protest to drilling off our coast and in support of clean energy, like offshore wind. Off shore drilling would have a profound negative impact on our environment, our local businesses, our beaches and our citizens.



This weekend has only reinforced that fact that we have to be even more vocal and more active within our communities politically to be the change and keep our country beautiful, clean and environmentally safe!

It’s a newer obsession of mine, seeking my artistic side. Art and crafty type hobbies were not something I grew up with. I came from a very practical household. Artsy type endeavors were considered frivolous and a waste of money and time. This kind of sentiment is something that’s been bred into me and my own nature. To a point I was kind of fearful of it. 

But now as I explore more and more that artsy side of myself I’m finding it to be really meditative and so good for my state of mind. I will definitely be throwing myself more and more into areas of life I’ve avoided because of how I was raised. It’s mind expanding and liberating to try out simple things like painting that were never part of my childhood.

Thanks to The Mermaid Factory for a fun place to create, dream, imagine, grow and allow us all to nurture the artist within We’ll be back to do the dolphin!
