How to beat the heat

I know that yesterday I was complaining about the heat but I came up with a temporary solution yesterday afternoon. I was in desperate need of something cold to drink and I really wanted a smoothie. We had frozen strawberries and frozen peaches in the freezer from back when I went through a smoothie stage about six months ago but nothing else. Then I found a bottle of V8 Splash Strawberry Kiwi juice from back when all I wanted to do was drink 8 gallons of juice a day early in my pregnancy. I figured I would just try and make a smoothie with these three ingredients and see what happened. I didn't use ice because the fruit was frozen and holy moly was it good.It tasted just as good, if not better, than any smoothie I have ever had at Smoothie King or Planet Smoothie back at home. I have had three since my discovery yesterday and now I am out of all my ingredients!! I know that there is probably not much nutritional value to my new discovery but I don't care because they taste so good! Now I know what I will be stocking up on at the commissary next week!

I head to the doctor in the morning and I am really looking forward to it. Should be fun to see baby Evans again. He has been moving up a storm and is pretty happy to keep me hobbling to the bathroom 7-8 times a night. Hard to believe he could be here in 8 weeks! Or earlier! But hopefully not later!!!
