Breakfast smoothie day 7!!!

3 ounces Greek yougurt

1/2 a carton of blueberries

A handful of Pineapple cubes

A bunch of kale

4 ice cubes

1/2 cup of water

Throw everything in blender and blend until smoothe.

 

This smoothie was a little thicker than I like but it tasted great. It is inspired from Beth Behrs’ book The Total Me-Tox. She gives a few smoothie recipes and this one is called Smooth-Out Smoothie. She also says to add 1 Tbsp of almond butter but I don’t have any in my home so that was left out. If you would like to learn more visit her website, totalmetox.com.

If you have tried any of her smoothies or have any comments about her book, please comment below. As always, thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

“An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.” -Unknown

My topic for today is MY 5TH ANNIVERSARY of having this blog. I am grateful for everyone who has stuck with me. I may not be the most consistent blogger or the most interesting but you have been here for me though it all. From my first post, “A smile happens in a flash, but its memory can last a lifetime” to my wedding plans and trips around the US. So much has happened in my life and I am glad I get to share it with you. I am grateful for those who have been with me the whole five years and for those who are just joining me in my adventures.

I just can’t believe that it really has been 5 years since I opened this account and began sharing my stories with the world. Literally, people from all over the world have viewed my blog, something I thought would never happen. I may not have millions of followers or be any sort of popular in the blogosphere but I am here and I am happy.

I hope you all keep coming back and enjoying my content. And for now, enjoy this amazing song that came to my mind.

“Growing up, I would watch a movie on video and would go to the back of the VHS and locate the address for Universal Pictures or MGM or whatever. I’d write to the studios asking them if I could be in a movie. They never wrote me back.” -Garrett Hedlund

From now on, my monthly updates on Universal Studios Hollywood will be a little different. I got a job there so I can tell you first hand about crowds, since I will be dealing with them. However, I will not see the crowds for rides or food, as I am in retail, but I can let you know how crowded each month is and what I hear about the lines from guests.

First of all, I want to let you know that if you are riding Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and it stops, it could very well be because someone in a wheelchair is getting on. It doesn’t mean that it broke down, even though the announcement says there may be a difficulty. I have guests getting upset about it quite often and I just wanted to clear the air. Even if you don’t personally see the person in the wheelchair, it doesn’t mean they aren’t there. They don’t always use the same line as you, as there is an elevator for them.

Now, the crowds in May were certainly picking up but we, thankfully, not too bad. I was able to attend the park as a guest a couple of times in the month and experience new things, of which I will be reporting on in this post. The longest line in the park was for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, which was a little over an hour-long. FYI, the easiest way to see wait times is to download the mobile app, it gives you wait times for every attraction.

20138026_1703909299917461_186553849_oOne new thing that I did was the Walking Dead attraction. For me, it was a lot less scary than I was expecting. It was still really well done and fun, though. I actually ended up going through it twice in one day, with different people. I love how everything is set up in the line queue, it really sucks you into the actual world.

20148857_1703909546584103_819448963_oNext, we road on the Tram, which is always fun. They had new surprises waiting for us, which is always a great way to keep season pass holder interested. I won’t spoil the fun for you so I didn’t take any pictures of it. But, I can tell you that the other stuff, like King Kong and Fast and Furious are still there and still the main thing that attracts people to it.

20138003_1703909533250771_1951695529_oThis month I finally had the opportunity to eat at the Three Broomsticks. If you haven’t been, I highly recommend it. I got the rib plate with a salad and it was so good. It makes my mouth water just looking at the picture. The sides were corn on the cob and potatoes, both of which were excellent. I honestly can’t wait to go again.

If you were there in May and have any extra tips in information, please leave a comment below. I hope you had a fun time reading my post this month and hope that you will come again next month.
