Roasted Banana Pudding Milkshake


Aaaannnd just like that I signed a lease! The craigslist ad had two sentences, “NO PETS!” (as one of the two sentences) and no pictures, but I went to look at it anyway. It was perfect great. I talked the landlord into fixing a few things, got him to approve my future dog and even got him to drop the rent by a few bucks. Aaaaand just like that I signed a lease, wrote a check and got my keys.

While I’m so stoked to have a new place that’s bigger and better, in a neighborhood I’m really excited about, part of me is a little sad to be leaving my old apartment.

I’ve lived here for almost four years, and so much has happened and changed in that time. It was in this apartment I thought to start a blog–and in its tiny kitchen is where I cooked up and shot my very first blog post (found it! also: embarrassing). I moved into this apartment with my then boyfriend…and after six years of dating, it’s the apartment we broke up in. In this apartment I experienced my worst heartbreak…and subsequently learned what the term “pick yourself up and dust yourself off” really feels like. So many memories, good and bad.

Cacao Coffee Banana Smoothie

Breakfast, Drinks

Right this very second, me writing these words is evidence of me procrastinating. Sure, I have to share this smoothie with you, blah blah, and we’ll get back to it. But really I should be in my kitchen testing recipes for big project I’m working on (I’ll tell you soon!).

Instead of cooking, I’m chilling on my couch, with one hand checking Instagram, another typing this, all while intermittently looking up at the TV to check out what Carrie’s doing on some random re-run of Sex and the City. (Seriously, what’d I do without E! playing these re-runs?! I did work, that’s what.)

It isn’t until I get totally disgusted with myself over said procrastination that I actually get the work done. And I have to say, I do my best work under pressure. I hustle. I get it done. But man, is it painful…

Please tell me you’re a procrastinator too. Don’t tell me you’re prompt, easily self-motivated, etc. Actually, do tell me that and tell me how you are. Procrastination cures. I need ’em.

How to Make Banana Pudding
Hi cute people. It’s me Adrianna. Yeah, me. Hi. What day is it? Tuesday? You dunno…yeah, me neither. I’m swamped in work. I don’t know where the day starts and where it ends. Is this real life?

The fun part about being busy is having a proper reason to stress eat. I have a legit excuse to eat more! And since this banana pudding was in my fridge, it was my tool of choice.
