Live Your Best Life (for less) Week 6

Over the weekend I learned something. A frozen banana may have the same texture as ice cream, but it still tastes like a banana. Whomp whomp. Jona and I made smoothies yesterday, of the peanut butter and chocolate variety. I poured them into our cups, getting pretty excited since it looked just like a milkshake. Jona tried his, made a face, and said "I don't like this." I wasn't too surprised, because he likes about 5 things right now. Then I tried it, made a face, and said "I don't like it either." It tasted like banana. I don't like banana (unless it's in banana bread). You'd think that I'd be smart enough to NOT make a smoothie out of frozen banana, but I really thought the other stuff would mask the banana flavor. Not so. Live and learn (and stick with milkshakes).

Anyway, here are the prompts for this week's Live Your Best Life (for less) June calendar. Just like last month's calendar prompts, these are also aimed at fostering more creativity, style, and contentment in your life.

{June 4} Weekly Outfit Inspiration. I'll share a blog post this week for some style inspiration for these prompts.
  • Bright printed top
  • Gingham love
  • Spring scarf

{June 5} LYBL – Come up with 3 “Personal Happiness Commandments” (inspired by Gretchen Rubin).  
  • When I come up with mine, I plan to display them somewhere that I'll see them every day, like beside the mirror in my bedroom, or maybe next to my computer at work. 

{June 6} Budget Dinner @ Home: Walnut, Ham, and Cheese Pasta (from Rachael Ray). 
  • This may not sound that exciting, but this is seriously one of my favorite meals ever. 

{June 7} LYBL – Check out your local library’s summer reading programs and events. 
  • I know you may not know this about me (ha!) but I sure do love the library. I'm lucky to live somewhere with a pretty great one nearby. We're a little late to get started (the kickoff was last week) but we may have to join in our local library's summer reading program, in which the theme is "Build a Better World". 

{June 8} Try some money-saving grocery tips, like creating a weekly meal plan. See this post for ideas. 

{June 9} Find something small, for $10 or less, to freshen up a room in your house. 

{June 10} Visit your local farmer’s market.

I'd love for you to join in! If you try any of these, be sure to tag me (@shealennon) and use #LYBLforLess.
