The Day Has Come -{launch + giveaway}

by Destini on February 1, 2012

Hello Friends!!!!!!!

Did you ever think that this day would actually come? I know I underestimated this whole process. Now it wasn’t too bad. But juggling this with Christmas, traveling and my design business…well I am sure you get the picture.  Thank you all for being so patient with me 😀

There is still thing’s that aren’t 100% and I am not fully sold on my banner at the top. The lil blonde version of me is a keeper and so are the colours. But other things are still needing some TLC. But the structure for the most part is shinning and ready. I felt I wouldn’t hold back anymore. I hope you all enjoy the newer and better version of my blog. When I first started Running to the Aisle I didn’t think this would be something long term.  However it has, and the old title of Running to the Aisle doesn’t really apply anymore….I also wanted to switch from a blogger platform to wordpress. And so far I am happy with this decision.

Let’s get to the gooders of the site! As you can see at the top, I have many new additions to my blog. Some are currently empty, but others are connected to old posts that have been exported from my previous blog. I wanted my new friends to be able to find the whole story all in one spot! I have also changed my Twitter id from therunningbride to thehealthywife! So please still tweet me or add me if you haven’t already!! And finally, I have also started a Facebook page! So go over there and gimmie a Like!!! (yeah I am needy and need your love). I believe that is all the current active newness. I will keep you guys all posted as more things become ready!

Now onto my favourite smoothie + Giveaway

As some of you know I am a HUGE fan of Manitoba Harvest Hemp products. I love the milk, protein powder, hemp hearts…I could go on. There is many benefits from hemp and you should go over to their site to read more!!!

Hemp Monster Smoothie!

Adapted from Angelas @ Oh She Glows Green Monster


  • 1 scoop chocolate hemp protein powder (you can of course use any protein powder)
  • 1T of hemp hearts(or chia seed, flax seeds, any type of crunchy awesomeness)
  • 1T of natural peanut butter (any nut butter is perfectly acceptable)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1cup of vanilla hemp milk or any low fat milk
  • couple ice cubs

Directions: Add liquid first, then the protein powder, hearts, nut butter, spinach and banana. Blend till smooth. Add the ice cubs and blend for a little longer. Pour into a generous cup and enjoy 😀

If you want to make that awesome smoothie then I have the Giveaway for you!! I thought nothing makes more sense than to do a giveaway of some of my favorite things. And those include hemp products. Manitoba Harvest Hemp isn’t a sponsor nor am I affiliated with them in any way. This is just something I want to share with all of you!

Your layout is beautiful!

I’ve tried a few hemp things and think they are a wonderful nutritional boost. But they are expensive…
