inside scoop

I have a couple of things to share with you. The first one you can pass along. The second one you must keep as a secret.
{My sister text me this photo this morning. Wishing I could of had one.}
My sister, Lisa's, liquid sunshine recipe:
3 huge handfuls of kale :: 4 romaine leaves :: 3-4 stalks celery :: slice of ginger :: 1 whole peeled cucumber :: 1 pear. Add the cucumber last. It adds all the water. Sometimes she likes to add a kiwi for a little extra zing. Yummo!

The second one is that we wear lounge pants in public. (shhhhh.)
We don't always dress alike. Actually, don't ever dress alike is more like it. However, I made her, her very own linen lounge pants and told her she had to wear them for a photo, so I could show you. (You should have seen the kids faces. Sometimes it's just down right fun to embarrass them.)
So, make some lounge pants in a washable linen. Use the salvage edge as the bottom. It's all frayed and cool. And call it a pair of linen pants. Done. Finished. Easy peasy. Super comfy.
Have a beautiful Friday!

You two gals are so cute!!!
I love that pattern so much - I've made my mom 2 pairs in washable linen - they are so comfy. I still haven't made any from sheets (what's the matter with me?) but I have made a skirt and a sundress from pillowcases - you must try it!
Thanks so much for sharing Lisa's smoothie receipe - I was going to ask for it! I've got a green one too that is very similar (uses strawberries instead of cucumber and doesn't have any celery). I can't wait to try this one!

Almost ALL my pants are lounge pants - I just call them Palazzo pants, and that seems to turn them into day wear :D
