Lake Trip with friends

Last weekend a bunch of us went to Devils Lake in Michigan. My friend, Ashley’s family has a lake house.

We had such a good time boating, jet skiing, drinking and floating!

The lake provided for some GREAT sunset pictures. I took maybe 40 but tried to pick just a select few 🙂

Peanut Butter Protein Shake

Protein

I don’t always make a protein shake after working out but this one I wish I could drink all day long. It is that good.

I found this recipe from Tenley Molzahn’s website “Sweet and Free Life”. (Tenley is from the Bachelor Franchise on ABC).

The Peanut Butter Protein Shake is easy to make and it tastes so good.

Give it a try after your next workout!

Peanut Butter Protein Shake

• 1 scoop of Chocolate Whey Protein (Can use vanilla/dark chocolate or another flavor if wanted)
• 1/2 cup Almond Milk
• 2 tbsp. Peanut Butter
• 1/2 cup of ice

Blend all ingredients.

1 serving. Drink after your workout only.

Enjoy!!

The Ellen Degeneres Show

Hope your long weekend was amazing!

I wanted to tell you an awesome thing that happened. On January 29 of this year my Mom and I were headed to LA to be on the ELLEN Show!

E 13

The show called my Dad here at work on January 28 (Monday). No one believed them when they said “This is Ellen from the Ellen DeGeneres Show”. (This was producer Ellen, not the REAL Ellen). They were looking for my Mom. After some convincing, my Dad finally called my mom and told her to call them back. Mom called them back at 5:00 on Monday. Mom and I were on a plane Tuesday morning at 11am headed out to LA.

Why did they want my Mom on the Ellen show?

We meet the sweetest woman at a 2010 Rotary Christmas party who did not sign up in time and had 4 young children at home who were not going to have a Christmas. Mom took their information and we went shopping! We wrapped the presents and took them over to Ry’Shonda when the kids were at school. We have done this every year since. These children are amazing because their mom is even more amazing! They deserve all the best in the world. Ry’Shonda wrote into Ellen about my mom. She said my Mom is her “Angel” and wanted Ellen to give her something. Well Ellen did that and gave Ry’Shonda even more!

Watch the clip here! http://www.ellentv.com/2013/01/31/a-heartwarming-surprise-for-ryshonda/

We were only in LA for 2 days. We made the most of it! Stayed at the Roosevelt Hotel right on Hollywood Blvd! It was such a great experience!
