What to Read While Laying on the Beach (or by the Pool)

Posted on

TGIF!

That is all that I can say…well, I guess I can say a little more ūüėČ ¬†I am so thankful that it is Friday, because that means that Brian comes home tonight. ¬†He has been traveling for the past 10 days with his mom and Aunt to visit some of their family in London and Ireland. ¬†He has had an amazing time, and I have loved hearing his stories…but I will be glad to have him home!

Breakfast

This morning was started with a super chocolatey smoothie that was super huge…I had a hard time finishing it!

 

Super Huge Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothie:

  • 2/3 frozen banana
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder of choice (I chose Sunwarrior)
  • 1/2 cup cold coffee
  • 2 stevia packets
  • 1 large tsp of raw cacao (or unsweetened cocoa powder)
  • 2 tsp peanut butter
  • ice until it gets to be the right consistency (mine took about 6 cubes)

Simply put it all in the blender and voila!  Breakfast is served.

Reading Recommendations

Tomorrow evening, my family (Brian included) is driving down to Florida for my younger brother’s graduation. ¬†I still have not packed a single thing, or made my packing list…oops! ¬†But I have been thinking about what I would like to read while on the trip. ¬† For me, it is a always a bit difficult for me to find a book that I truly get into…but once I get into a book, I can’t put it down.

Some of my recent favorites have been:

  • The Pact¬†by Jodi Picoult
  • The Hunger Games¬†by Suzanne Collins
  • Dear John¬†by Nicholas Sparks
  • Accidentally Overweight¬†by Dr. Libby Weaver
  • The Hundred Year Lie¬†by Randall Fitzgerald

That being said, I am looking for a great book to take on the trip with me that I will be able to finish on the trip…because if I bring it home, I won’t pick be able to pick it up again until next summer! (ok maybe I’m exaggerating slightly)

I really like thriller, romance, self-help, informative, health related….

What are some of your summer reading suggestions???
