Inspired by...

Hi. What should a wife (pregnant wife) be rewarded with after a day of cleaning? No, not cooking. More cleaning? Wrong again. - Some quite time spent in her favorite corner! Whatever it is, but it's very much needed. That's what I did yesterday. I was cleaning for hours, but then my con-tractions became a little too frequent, so I needed to sit down. Here is what I did:

I love to add grays onto my pages lately. It seems like whenever you need another color, but don't want to change the mood a whole lot - go with grays or cream. You can never go wrong with these neutral colors.

I kind of overloaded this page with little things, but I was really just having fun. And, I guess cleaning my house before working on that page kind of effected my color combination for the page - blue, yellow, grey, white...
These pictures were taken about a month ago, when I wanted to snap some everyday photos for my PL. First, I came into Liana's room and took a picture as she was reading a book. Then, I went downstairs to take a few pics of my teenagers. Well, this one ran right after me, and she was SO fast that somehow she ended up in all of their pictures too. She jumped on Alena's bed first, and as soon as I turned to take a picture of Suzanna, she flew over and was already looking at the camera. She really made us laugh!

Oh, before I go I wanted to share a pictures of something we eat almost every single day.


My sister shared a recipe of this smoothie with us and now we can't have enough of it. It is one of the healthiest things you can treat yourself with! She wanted me to guess what was in it. I couldn't guess half the stuff - and that was the healthiest part. Here is a trick, let your family have it, but don't share ingredients, then everybody will like it, even a 3 year old.

For the smoothie I used: apples, banana, strawberries, frozen blueberries and raspberries, grapes, celery, spinach, parsley, flex seed and apple cider juice. (I don't usually serve it with whipped topping. It was only for the picture.) Of course you add more fruits then vegetables, but it's a great way to eat more veggies in the winter months since salads don't go as well in the winter as they do in the summer.

Here is my helper enjoys her portion of vitamins! Yumm!

See you next time!

  1. Anya you confused me! By the time I finished writing my comment you redid your post and I had to rewrite everything :-/ anyway I guess I’ll start off with the LO… as always, very nice! At first looking at it I wondered why you used the yellowish color on it, but the more I look at it the more I love it! Love the colors, makes it look like perfect weather, not too hot and not too cold! Very nice!

    Then I was going to write about the smoothie… I was going to say please don’t include your smoothie here, but you added the pics before I could finish my comment. Ew! I know the picture looks really good, and Lianochka looks adorable, almost makes you want to try it… but knowing the ingredients, I KNOW its healthy and good for you, but it just makes me gag! :-/ sorry!

    Ohh and when you said what do you want to do after cleaning all day… I really was expecting some kind of yummy not so good for us food picture (that’s what I would want after cleaning all day) :-D but no, you wanted to do more work! Who does that?! :-D haha

  4. Yes, Anya, take it easy and don't overwhelm yourself with cleaning too much. You definitely deserve to do so right now. I think Vitya got you silhouette at just the most perfect time! Anyway, I never liked the texture of smoothies for some reason. Maybe I can make it for my hubby without telling him what's in it. I've done this before when I mashed in cauliflower into mashed potatoes and he doesn't know to this day! lol
    I like how you combined the colors in that layout.

  5. Yes, he did! He even told me that he dot it to make this time go by a little faster and a little easier. Wasn't that sweet?

    When am I going to see something you did? I know, besides homework you probably don't create much...

    ОтветитьУдалить
  6. That is very sweet of Vitya!
    I don't create nothing now but I have during my winter break. I've done a couple of pages with many photos on each unlike I mostly use only one photo on layouts. I can e-mail them to you. I'm also hoping of creating a page or during my break this coming week but will see.

  12. Anya, nice inspired page! and the shake looks good too :) Ira, u can't probably really taste individual ingredients, therefore u should try it ;)

  13. oh Anya, I was going to ask you, r we going to see some of your PL anytime soon? :D

    ОтветитьУдалить
  14. Yes, Lora, you will! Actually I just got my 3x4 journaling cards yesterday. I was trying to order more pictures, and worked on a quilt... but I do have a page to share meanwhile, and PL in the very near future :)

    ОтветитьУдалить
  15. Lorik i know that you can't taste some of the ingredients... and i know its healthy... some stuff just does not need to be tasted to know that you won't like it! Sorry :-/ and actually the hole consistancy of a smoothy i'm more and more not liking, so i'm going to skip on this one!

    ОтветитьУдалить
  16. Ira if you would drink it almost frozen, that is how I like it because I use more frozen berries then fresh, then it tastes like frozen whole fruit icecream. I will do whatever it takes to make you taste it one day :-)
    Anya when is our DD party? with weather like today it should be a good way to cool down, looking throug our "frozen" pages :-)

    ОтветитьУдалить
  17. Tanya thanks but still not going to happen! My teeth are so sensitive to anything cold that i honestly hardly ever eat icecream and almost never use ice! I even drink water at room temp. and bruth my teeth with warmer water ;-/ sorry but nice try :-)

    ОтветитьУдалить
  18. Ira, I'm with you on that one, I drink room temp water, don't like ice that much, but I eat lots and lots of ice cream :P And to tell you the truth, I haven't tried this shake either, but I'm planning in the near future, and I'm afraid I'll be the only one drinking it here... :)

  19. Anya, then why are you keeping them away from us, share! :)

  20. Anya, I'm having so much trouble sending you my DD pics. I keep getting "failure notice" that it exceeds the size capacity. Will have to have my hubby help me with that. You'll get them soon.
