Hey friends, I had some major fails in the kitchen last night, flat chocolate muffins and super soggy bread dough. So, we will have to make do with this vibrant and refreshing Strawberry Orange Sunrise Smoothie Bowl instead.
I hope you already started enjoying your long weekend with some fun activities. We took the dogs out to the dog beach yesterday to meet up with their corgi cousin, Hazel Bear, (picture) and to have some fun at the SoCal Corgi beach day. There were so many celebridogs out and about at the event, and lots of Corgi butts, obviously. I think the dogs had fun, and got super exhausted from so much excitement. But it is a sad reminder how much more I love the beaches in Maui. I also miss all the delicious fresh smoothies we used to get every day, whether just walking up to a juice bar or sitting down in a restaurant. Hence, this strawberry orange sunrise smoothie bowl. ????
Ever since we got back from Maui, I have been obsessing over how to redecorate my back patio to bring in that tropical beachy vibe. Even though I’m not looking forward to the SoCal dry heat, we’ll have to figure out a way to make good use of our backyard this summer. My plan for the rest of the weekend: look for some tropical fabric to sew pillow covers, obsess some more over patio decoration, make bread from the soggy dough anyways. 😛 And then perhaps I’ll have another strawberry orange sunrise smoothie bowl on my daybed out in the backyard with my Kindle to squeeze in some weekend good read.
Happy Fourth and stay safe!
