#SmoothieSunday Super Green Smoothie


Today's smoothie is ALL GREEN and no berry.

Which scared me at first … I like to hide berries inside to sweeten it up. While I have to admit, it isn't my favorite, its better than I thought it would be … the green kiwi actually adds a nice sweetener that is a nice break from the berry. Coupled with the fact that it's so healthy, makes it an easy drink!

2 cups spinach
1 kiwi
2 baby cucumbers
1 cup plain greek yogurt
Chia seeds
Coconut water

The Perfect Baby Blow Out


Sweet Baby Lincoln's hair is often the topic of conversation in my life. 

At work. 
At home. 
At Lincoln's School. 
With Strangers. 
With Friends. 
With Envious Balding Men. 

Just how does Baby Lincoln achieve the Perfect Baby Blow Out?

We start with quality hair products. I've tried several shampoos on Lincoln. Honest Co. seems to work well, most notably since it doubles as a Body Wash. Lincoln doesn't have a lot of time to waste in the bathtub. 


First Step: We lather up with with shampoo and wash-up.


Second Step: We apply conditioner, we like to use a healthy dose. About the size of a nickel.

I apply and then massage from roots to tips. We let it soak in for about five minutes.


Third Step: Rinse. 

Fourth Step: Lincoln gets cozy in his Bumbo and waits for the blow out. 
He likes to hold the hair tools and hand them to me as we need them. 


Fifth Step: Select a style.

Today we selected a "blow back" style. We also have tried the "up, up and away" and sometimes the "deep side part." It really depends on our mood and what we are trying to achieve.

Sixth Step: I keep the dryer on a very, very low-medium heat and keep it far from his head. He barely gets a breeze, but it's just enough to perfectly dry his luscious locks.

Seventh Step: It's time for a warm bottle and bed. Being a Diva is such hard work.
