Shake It, Saturday

Man, I don’t think I should have caffeine in the afternoon any more! It’s been a while since I have had any after lunchtime, and I have been going, going, going since I made this earlier:


I tried to make a homemade frappuccino and it turned out pretty well! This was –

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup cold coffee
  • 1-2 cups ice
  • nesquik powder  :)

it was good, but I’ve been so hyper! I also had about a cup of Lesser Evil popcorn (plus a few more small handfuls right out of the bag).


This stuff is so good! It’s a good thing the bag I have isn’t very big.

I got one load of laundry washed + dried + folded + put away, and I have one more in the dryer right now.

As that stuff was washing, I decided I needed a toenail color change:


So cute and light! I got this in a sweet little care package from Nicole at Real Simple, along with a super cute purse organizer and a magnetic notepad – it’s like she read my mind on what I use the most: notepads for making tons and tons of lists and huge purses where I can’t find anything   :)

Of course, the name of the polist was just as cute as the color –


Real Simple – cute huh? They have their own nail color  :)  Thanks so much Nicole!

I just got back from finishing up grocery shopping and Nick just finished cutting the grass, so dinner tonight is some big & easy gumbo-laya leftovers.


Mmm…just as good as last night  :)

I haven’t made the shakes yet, but I’m making them based on this recipe that I got from Nicole at Real Simple the other day. I knew I had to make them as soon as I saw the recipe.

I’ll only be making 2 and I’m planning on using almond milk, frozen mixed berries, and slow churned vanilla ice cream. I think they’ll be good.

If they look as pretty as their pictures, I’ll post one in the morning – just to prove we had them.

We’re about to watch Taken and I’m excited about it! I’ve seen some good reviews, so I’m hoping it’s as good as I’m expecting.

Hope you’ve had a great and less-klumsy day than me!


  1. Love the first picture– looks like the perfect way to relax (especially with the guitar in the background)

  2. That frappachino looks yummy! I tried making one a few times… it was alright, but def. not as good as starbucks. Your mix sounds a lot better, though!

    That shake recipe looks delicious! I hope the movie’s good :D

  3. i heart Taken was amazinGG!

    love that nail polish color!! just like the one i am wearing now!!! :)

  4. 1. I love the nail polish color! Where did you find it??

    2. Great idea to make a frappucino for yourself. I was just thinking that I might go for a coffee (decaf) tomorrow and that’s a great way to do it with this warmer weather!

  5. Essie nail polishes are definitely one of my favorite brands, they’re nail polishes are great. I also like OPI! I have a very similar color to the Essie shown in your post, but it’s from Estée Lauder, I really like it because it’s so simple and “innocent”, a great color for those days when I feel like just keeping it “toned” down and not going with my usual shock red or pink nails.

  6. I love essie nail polish- that color is great!

    Homemade frappuccinos are great- I need to use decaf though or I am bouncing off the walls all day!

    Have a great Sunday!

  7. Love the couch-y lounge-y frappuchino picture! Your gumbo leftovers look delish, too!

  8. I love that color of nail polish – it is Real Simple :) Hope you enjoyed your milkshakes last night!!

  9. i love reading the names of nail polish, they are always so fun!
