The FULL fixer upper reveal! Our biggest renovation to date!

You may remember back in February we bought a new fixer upper.  Typically our homes don't take this long to renovate and sell but this baby was a doozy!  We had to literally take the entire house down to the studs.  This home needed a whole new plumbing and electrical system, HVAC and roof.  We also needed one million and one permits and inspections every step of the way.  The house was overgrown with trees and bushes, no driveway, and... well... plain old disgusting.  NOT livable by any means and in the beginning we even shopped around the property to builders as a tear down.  The lot is oversized and on a corner in a very desirable part of town.  After a few nights of thinking it over and running the numbers we decided to go for it.  It's a sold stucco home and we were ready to restore it back to a beautiful Florida property.

The easiest breakfast smoothie everrr!

Each morning after walking our daughter to school we come back home and I blend up one of these quick and delicious smoothies for my husband and I.  We have probably been making these for a year straight. You literally do not get sick of them and it fills you up for hours! Plus it's a great way to get in some spinach and berries (especially since those aren't things my husband would choose to snack on regularly!)

-Peanut Butter
-Whey Protein Powder (I use chocolate)
-Almond Milk ...I also every two weeks switch and buy Coconut Milk

There is really no "recipe" for this. What I do makes two (around 12oz) glasses
 I start by adding a little ice and a little (very little) amount of water
Two handfuls of spinach
Handful of rasberries
Handful of blueberries
Two scoops protein powder
Two scoops peanut butter
Fill up half the blender with the milk

That's all! It's super quick, no prepping of fruits and is so good you guys! I h…
