yellow submarine

You guys may or may not already know this (from one of Olivia's posts) but I love The Beatles.  Especially their album, and movie "Yellow Submarine." The movie is crazy and weird (so are most of the songs on the album) but it is also exceptionally awesome. SO, when Olivia and I were at Goodwill, she found this sweatshirt. It is a yellow zip up sweatshirt, nothing special about the style, but on the front it reads: 
The Beatles
Yellow Submarine 
                                              NOTHING IS REAL
It is probably my favorite item of clothing (you can see it in the first couple seconds of the video also) After Goodwill, we walked to Starbucks, in which there is a daily trivia question. If you answer the question correctly, you get a free shot  of espresso— which Olivia did. In the video you can see her saying "wow, that is really strong coffee," after drinking it. Next, we walked to the town landing and hung out on the beach for a while. And although it was cold, we went swimming (not really swimming, more like jumping in and then getting out.)

So a couple of days ago, my friend got a new PUPPY (I want one) He is a black lab, his name is Finely, and he is one of the cutest dogs I've ever seen :)

I probably didn't need to put together an entire video of this dog... but I did anyways.

{yes, I have used this song in a post before, but it just seemed to fit}

I love guacamole with chips or nachos. This is a pretty simple recipe, and not too hard to prepare

 {cut one avocado and put into a bowl}

 {dice one tomato and add to the avocado}
 {dice 1/2 clove of garlic}
 {add about 1/2 teaspoon of lime juice}
 {mix everything together with a fork (to mash the avocado)}
{good when eaten with nachos}

enjoy :)

awake my soul

Today, my dad, my friend Oceanna, and I went to this little beach on Macworth island. Although it was a little cloudy, it was so beautiful on the beach. Of course, we took my dog Milo — and we walked down the shore for a while.

{strawberry/banana} smoothie

This is a super basic recipe, but it is so yummy and refreshing — especially for summer 

P.S. I am sponsoring a giveaway here and here  it would be great if you guys would enter! :)
 {add about 10-12 strawberries into a blender with 5-10 pieces of ice}
 {cut up one banana and add to the blender}
 {blend with about a cup of lemonade (add more if you like a thinner smoothie)}

{*tip: don't take the picture and pour the smoothie at the same time}
