Move over, Starbucks.
After a long walk with Max this morning, a piping hot cup of coffee was not on my mind. Cue: a creamy, tri-level treat that is cold, refreshing, and best of all: cheap!

Blend all ingredients in a magic bullet or blender until ice cubes are broken but not dissolved. Pour into cup (such as my age-old, chipped Pom Tea glass) and watch as the layers deliciously separate. Sip on patio under umbrella while flipping through Vogue (optional, but highly recommended).

As comical as these graphics are... the truth does hurt.
Screen crack in the top right hand corner, rendering the camera fried
I'd take a picture to show you... oh. Yes. Just kidding.

I'm going to mod it to attach my DSLR. That's obviously the next step.

(Not going to lie, I found it much more hard-hitting when muted.)

Today's to do list: Conquer the kitchen. Our canisters on the counter were such a pain; the clasps always fell off, and as cute as they were (they came with tiny wooden spoons attached!) they were too frustrating to keep them. So of course, I got creative.

Martha Stewart office products caught my eye from day one, but I didn't plan on purchasing them (they're a little pricy)until finding these canisters. Perfectionnn! (And bonus: Adam fully thought that the labels came pre-written on. He smudged one and couldn't figure out why. I figure that means they look ok.)

These little gems are a dollar store find! 3 for $2, and 100% worth it.

I found that little guy in the middle on the top shelf for my heavily-used cocoa supply; another dollar store find. Going back to pick up some more, now that I know how perfect they all match! Makes my OCD happy.

And tonight... We got MAX!

....we tuckered him out. We've got him for a week while his real family is on vacay. I'm already in love.
