Blast-off to Alaska in 5 days! In preparation, I re-installed Snapchat on my phone.
The last snap I sent was on January 22, 2017. Deleting the app (not my account) was a great decision for me after I ended up wasting a ton of time on their newsfeed feature.
Starting Saturday, though, I’ll be 2,000 miles away from friends and family. Seeing their faces is important to me, and Snap is the easiest way to do that.
I also realized today that by the time I fly home my puppy will be 8 months old! I’m going to abandon her for the same amount of time she’s been alive so far (sobs). She’s going to be so big! Another good reason for Snap, as I will be demanding lots of pictures.
As this is my last week at home, quality time with family and friends is the priority. I got to spend the day with two of my three younger brothers, and even saw my bestie for about an hour.
I’ve made more plans for this week than all of last semester.
This morning I also made a batch of banana bread. As a college student, banana bread is a great cheap and easy snack/breakfast/gift. It’s super versatile and easy to make in one bowl. Win!
Banana bread is great plain, but I love the addition of some walnuts. Today, I realized there was a decided lack of walnuts on my baking shelf, and substituted toasted coconut flakes instead.
Guys. Toasted coconut banana bread is revolutionary.
The addition of a great nutty, coconut flavor made this batch exceptional. Coconut and bananas is also a fun, tropical combination and it added a little zest to the overcast morning!
I always endorse trying new things, especially in baking. This experiment was a winner! The two loaves I ended up with didn’t last the day. I also neglected to get a picture.
I suppose I’ll have to make more soon.
This is a short post, but the next few days are going to be a bit hectic. Bear with me and there will be some fun travel posts at the end of the week!
