Coming up this week!

Today is Ditch New Years Resolutions Day!
Tuesday is Thesaurus Day.
Wednesday is Popcorn Day.
Thursday is Bill Cosby Sweater Day (hahaha I'm so excited!) and Cheese Day!
Friday is National Hugging Day
Saturday is Blonde Brownie Day (Mmm, I'm excited to make some!) and Answer Your Cat's Questions Day
and on Sunday it's National Handwriting Day!

Oh & good news!  I found the missing piece of the blender and I was able to make the Green Monster Smoothie.  It is DELICIOUS.  It's so good!  I'm going to be making it at least once every day...  I was surprised at how good it tasted.  Definitely try it out!  I used this recipe:
  • 1.25 cup almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds
  • 2 cups raw baby spinach
  • 1 banana
  • ice
If you make it, put in the flax seeds, spinach, banana and almond milk in that order, and then blend.  Once it's blended, add the ice & mix it all together.  SO good!  It just tastes like a banana smoothie.  I don't think I'll be able to get Keith to try it though, ha! 
(By the way, sorry for the lack of my photos... my camera has been going downhill!  It's hard to get my lens to focus on anything properly, and I've been borrowing my sister's as much as I can but she needs it for herself... if you wanna help me raise some money for my new camera, buy something from my shop!  Haha.  Then my posts will be FILLED with my own photos!)

So since today is Ditch New Years Resolutions Day, that means you can give yourself a break from whatever it is that you've been doing since the new year started!  I didn't actually make any resolutions (I never really have... except one year I said I wanted to learn how to knit, then I think I did like two years later.  Ha.) so I can't exactly participate in this "holiday", but I guess I'm kind of doing the opposite. I want to drink one of those smoothies every single morning!  It's supposed to give you a ton of energy which I really need!  I'm always so tired & exhausted and have no motivation... so I'm hoping this will help me out a bit.  So far, day 1 has been good!  Haha.  We'll see how many days I can keep this up for...  

What were some of the resolutions that you guys made?  How have you been at keeping them?  If there are some you jsurt really wanna break... today is your day!

OH, I also wanted to mention that I'm looking for someone who is good with designing stuff on computers (or, just drawing in general, I guess!) and can design me a logo or an image for this project.  On the days that I don't have anyone signed up to draw something for that holiday, I feel like my post looks empty without a photo at the beginning.  Could any of you design me a little thing that says "Celebrate Every Day" or something along those lines?  Or "365 Holidays with Holly!" hahah I don't know, something catchy!  I'm not good at coming up with those things.  But maybe just some sort of image/doodle/whatever that I can post on the weekly entries where I say what happened that week & what is coming up the next week (like, today's post!  Except I kind of expanded since I didn't have much to talk about for today's holiday.), or for the posts I don't have a drawing done by someone else.  (I don't think this is making much sense!  Hahaha sorry.)  Anyways, let me know if you are interested!  Thanks so much!


  1. I really want to try that green monster! I am defnititely going to go get me some baby spinach and some other yummy ingredients soon!!! Thanks for sharing that!:D

  2. yummm that smoothie looks so good & healthy! I'll ask around to see if anyone will design you a logo!

  3. I think I've been celebrating Ditch New Year's Resolutions Day since 12:01am on January 1st. Oops. Bill Cosby Sweater Day, I'm so there!

    I'm not good at drawing things or making logos, but I do have Photoshop! I'd be happy to try to make a little 365 Holidays with Holly (adorable, by the way) banner if you need a last resort. But there's so many other much more talented people out there - ha!

  4. That smoothie looks waaayyy healthy, I love that you paired it with Ditch Your Resolutions Day!

  5. um... i think i would be hesitant to try that drink because it is green. which makes no sense, because my favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip!!! :) lol. PS i emailed u a couple of buttons for this project!! love you!!! xoxoxo
