Dawn, listen to me. Listen. I love you. I will always love you.
But this is the work that I have to do.
Tell Giles… tell Giles I figured it out. And, and I’m okay.
And give my love to my friends. You have to take care of them now. You have to take care of each other. You have to be strong.

Dawn, the hardest thing in this world… is to live in it.
Be brave. Live. For me.”

Let’s talk smoothies

Lately I’ve been into smoothies in a big way. Some may say it’s an obsession, but at least it’s a healthy one. I’ve replaced regular breakfast with one every day and I feel fuller longer, plus they are so yummy and I can take them out the door with me if need be. I’m going to start posting some of my favorite recipes that I’ve either come across online or made up on my own. With that being said, I’ll start with the lovely creation I had this morning. I don’t know nutritional break down. However smoothie recipes are very forgiving, it’s so easy to substitute another veggie, another fruit, even a different type of milk. So without further ado, I bring you…

Kale Pineapple Smoothie!

Isn’t it a lovely shade of green? Yep, that surprised me too. Here’s how I made it:

1/2 c coconut milk

3/4 c pineapple (I used canned crushed pineapple because that’s what I had but it would be more healthy & probably more yummy with real pineapple)

1 c kale

1/2 frozen banana

Blend, blend, blend! (No ice required)

This has a very tropical feel.

Let me add that I rarely measure so you may get a little more than a big glass full, but if you have someone at home with you they will love this too.

You could replace the kale with spinach and the coconut milk with almond milk. It will still include a superfood and still be delicious.

I hope you try it and love it as much as I do.

Brush, Whiten, Go!

I received this from Influenster for free to provide a test and product review.

My teeth are not terribly stained, but I do drink coffee semi-regularly so I want to get a jump on any issues. First of all this is SO MUCH easier than those strips. You really do brush, whiten and go. No rinsing, no waiting, it’s that easy.

For best results do the following:

start by brushing with Colgate Optic White toothpaste. It has a pleasant flavor and will leave your teeth sparkly.

Give the whitening pen a couple clicks to get it started (once product has reached the top it takes approximately 2 clicks for top row of teeth and 2 for bottom, but I found a little goes a long way).

Swipe the whitening pen on your teeth. Top teeth, bottom teeth, all around.

Smile! you are finished and able to go about your day. It adds seconds to your normal toothbrush routine.

My teeth felt cleaner and looked whiter after just a few days.

I don’t find it necessary to use this product continuously. I’ll probably use it once a month or so to help in between professional cleanings.

I would recommend this. The price is a little steep (between $10-$15 for toothbrush and whitening pen), but not when you compare it to other teeth whitening systems.

If you are looking for a quick, easy, inexpensive way to whiten your teeth, try this…

Brush, Whiten, GO!

so very sad


Onagawa (Japan) (AFP) - Yasuo Takamatsu, 57, grunts with the effort of hoisting a scuba diving tank onto his back, as he prepares to step into the cold waters off Japan&#8217;s tsunami-ravaged coast to look for the body of his wife, one of thousands still missing three years on. &#8220;She was a gentle and kind person,&#8221; said Takamatsu. Takamatsu, a bus driver by trade, was never a natural candidate for learning to scuba dive and was worried he would not be able to do it. But he feels driven to the water when he thinks about the last time he heard from his wife Yuko, before the nearly 20-metre (66-foot) wave engulfed her.
