At least half this week I started off on the post-10AM side of things. I am choosing not to feel bad about that, after a full Christmas month of few Zzzz’s and plentiful dark eye circles. This week, I’ll be up by say, 8AM everyday. Don’t believe? Follow me on Twitter and check on @thedailysampler. Mostly, I can hear you cursing me for not having a reason to be up by 8AM, and to that I say, hey Halifax- I’m looking for a gig. Let’s make it happen!
Also in the week ahead, there will be lots of prepping, planning, mind-changing, and achieving. As I mentioned and will continue to mention in fear, tomorrow is the big 6-month mark before my 30th birthday. It seems to me that this space has cleared itself up nice and pretty in my life so I can focus on these projects. It’ll be sooooo fun. If you think I’m annoying now, just wait until I get my shit together and then am super annoying about that.

Superfoods as Smoothie Add-Ins (The Daily Meal) – I am just recently the last person on Earth to get into smoothies. In the past, I’ve found them to be A) not that healthy, and B) too much work in the morning. I hate cleaning small appliances! For my new plan, a cup of frozen berries and some low fat milk pretty much does the trick and I like it. Throw in a few of these extra ingredients and it almost makes cleaning the blender worthwhile.
