Pure cuteness

A few things make my extra happy right now. 

First off, waking up to these cute cuddle pups (plus hubs of course too). I mean really .... Harley isn't laying NEXT to Willis but instead laying directly over his back, haha!! I love that he lets her too. This is her new thing, and I imagine them sleeping like this when they are home alone all day.



My second joy is my protein spinach smoothie :)
 I make one every morning in my blender: put one scoop of chocolate protein, 2tsp almond butter, 2tsp of Greek yogurt, half a banana, splash of almond milk and water, and a HUGE heap of spinach. It's seriously the yummiest thing ever. I tricked Gabe for 2wks and got him to drink it daily ... Told him it was mint that made it green since he doesn't eat a ton of veggies. Well, then a girlfriend slipped at CrossFit when he was talking about it and he said, "I don't know what makes it that green ... ". She said spinach and felt so bad the secret got out. I didn't even care because he had been enjoying it long enough that he craves it like me every morning. The perfect way to start your morning with protein, veggies, and good fat. Yummmm.

Your smoothie sounds yummy. I haven't added almond butter, but may have to find some because it seems to be all the rage.

Oh my goodness, how cute! If I were to get a 2nd dog, I don't think my Yorkie would try and go near it at all.

I am still afraid of the green monster. I don't know why because I like everything in it. Crazy! And how cute is your pup!

I make this smoothie also, but include almond milk instead of water. Anyhow, what protein powder do you use? I'm assuming it's a lean one. I'm on the hunt for a new brand... Thanks!!

We're on a clean eating kick too and haven't found a protein powder that we can eat-- wanna share what you're using? The smoothie sounds delicious!

I've been making green monster smoothies too! I got on the kick a few weeks ago - my recipe is a little different - but can't taste the spinach at all - they are amazing!
