Pretty Pick-Me-Up Smoothie
Well I wasn’t sure when I’d be able to say this, but it’s *~ snowing ~*! I hope you’re all having a wonderful relaxing Tuesday (I’ve been at work, in class and in meetings all day sadly, but can’t wait to get home later and have wine time with my roommates!) I made this smoothie over the weekend (you might have seen it on my Snapchat: xofeliciaa), but if not, I’m sharing the steps with you now!
I had such a fun weekend guys. Maybe even too much fun. My Friday night in particular, was pretty crazy. I got back to my apartment only to find out that I had left my key inside on my desk and was locked out… my roommates were all gone and wouldn’t be back until late that night so it took me a while to figure out how to get in. But I did it! After that mishap I didn’t have much time to get ready for the Knicks game and subsequent birthday party for friends at the Gansevoort Hotel in Chelsea.
The Knicks game was SO much fun! Ben and I had amazing seats – just one row away from courtside – and found ourselves standing next to celebrities most of the night… it was so hard for me not to fan girl guys! Maybe you saw on my Instagram (@felicia.czo) that I spotted @thefatjewish, BJ Novak (from The Office!) and Luis Severino (yup that one. The Yankees pitcher) – and refrained from taking selfies with them… I felt bad! Now having major regrets though. I keep telling Ben I can never watch The Office again without feeling major shame!
Fun nights like that are of course always filled with a good Pinot, some champagne and unfortunately some tequila. It pretty much goes without saying that I needed a good *~ hydrating~* pick-me-up the next morning. Voilaaa that’s where this yummy smoothie comes in handy!
