Tuesday Things

Some random thoughts for you on this Sunny Tuesday morning!


Thank you all SO much for all of your smoothie tips and tricks! My skills and recipe ideas are definitely improving, but I don’t think I’ll be able to get a recipe up before tomorrow.  Be sure to head over to the HLB site and check out all of the other delicious looking smoothie recipes!! (here)


I’m so excited/nervous/anxious for The Color Run in Chicago this weekend!!  I’m headed down on Friday for packet pickup and then the race is bright and early Saturday morning.  Luckily the weather is supposed to be much cooler than it has been around here, which should make for a great race.  I can’t wait to be covered in colors.  I hope that I can finaggle a way to take some photos throughout the race without ruining my phone/camera!


Do you know Liz who blogs over at Little Bitty Bakes? It is her birthday today! She makes such fabulous – and generally EASY – recipes, so definitely go check out her blog and wish her a happy birthday! She also just released an e-book filled with sweet (like literally sweet dessert-like) recipes using Greek Yogurt!  It only costs about as much as your morning Starbucks run, and there is definitely something for everyone in it, so go get yourself a copy!


I went to my newly discovered favorite FroYo place again last weekend.  Still so good.  I think they’ve had new and different toppings every time I’ve been there! I always go for the more fruity toppings anyways but it’s always good that they switch it up so there is a possibility of something new and different every time!


This photo is proof that sometimes she does actually chew on things that she is supposed to chew on…she would just rather get our attention by chewing on naughty things like shoes and cords.



I can’t believe its already almost June!!  I’ve been having tons of fun with the Photo-A-Day posts (check out my Instagram and follow me at klnigl!)   I highly encourage joining in on the fun, and June 1st would be a perfect time to start! I posted the June list on my feed, so go check it out.  Its lots of fun to see how people interpret the daily prompts, so I hope to see some of you joining in too!  If you don’t have Instagram, you could always just post it via a regular twitter photo, on Facebook, blog, or whatever!


Hope everyone has a great week!!  Oh, and I’m always looking for restaurant recommendations for Chicago so send them my way if you have them!  Especially in the Northbrook/Skokie area since that is where we’ll be staying this time.  Thanks!!
