I worked from home today, my husband came home and went to bed at 8 pm... You can imagine how incredibly bored I must be today. I watched The Bachelorette from last night, took a nap from 8:15 pm to 9:30 pm, woke up, made myself a nice hot cup of tea and decided to blog. Thank GOD I have an outlet and my baby bloggy to keep me entertained. My blog means the world to me and keeps me so happy... it's so important for women especially without kids to have hobbies. I just can't sit still... I am a Gemini, remember, always restless? I'd go absolutely insane doing nothing! I'm so going to work tomorrow!
And now, the non-dairy strawberry smoothie! Doesn't this smoothie look spectacular? OMG! It almost looks like a cocktail and felt as though I was drinking strawberry syrup. All I need is a crystal blue water background and me sipping this drink on a beach, somewhere! Speaking of beach, I have wanted to go on vacation so bad. I just feel I haven't gone anywhere, and going to India hardly counts as a vacation for me. I really want to check out Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Is Mexico safe these days? Let's see how it all turns out. If all else fails, I'll have to check out one of the Caribbean islands. Any suggestions for a group vacation? :-)
