Two Bits + Creamy Cashew Smoothie Recipe

We want to break down these internet barriers and invite you into our lives and we’re hoping you’ll do the same.  You are welcome to share your a bit of your week or day in the comments, or if they’re better represented by a photo, tag us on instagram @liveseasoned

We like to share a photo and thoughts from our week, but I confess, that the above photo was taken two weeks ago while we were on the East Coast. It shows little A in his element  – surrounded by kitties! That guy loves a cat like I would have never expected. He now has 4 stuffed kitties of varying sizes, and while I tried to capture him holding all of them at once (he’s been walking around the house with them), the photo escaped me! Maybe it’s because I spent the week feeling sleep deprived. I stopped drinking coffee while we were traveling for the holidays, but this week proved that I had to start up again (just a half cup in the morning), if I want to survive Alex’s early mornings! The coffee has also given me the power to start a few new knitting projects, finish others (more soon!) and straighten up this house, particularly my craft room/office, in an attempt to get our year off to an organized and creative start!

I can’t believe January is nearly over! I feel like 2015 is moving way too fast already.  To slow it down, I’ve been taking longer dog walks and drinking bigger smoothies.  That makes sense, right?  This week I came up with a new way of holding Ca$h’s leash.  It’s basically a way to pit my entire body weight against his strength.   That sounds complicated, but it’s really not.  I’ll post a pic to IG tomorrow so you know what I’m talkin’ about.  Yesterday I made an enormous creamy cashew smoothie and it was SO tasty!


Here’s a smoothie sippin’ outtake. This is why I don’t allow myself to appear in photos.  See my smoothie ‘stache? Cashew smoothies are so creamy and delicious. Yum, yum, yum!
