Strawberry, Peanut Butter & Chia Seed Smoothie

Pin It PIN IT!

You know what I’m ready for? To have cable. And wifi. And a couch. A dining room table would  pretty cool too. And you know what else? Not having our living room blocked off by giant boxes. I’m ready to have a real house (well, apartment) where I can happily invite people over and not stub my toe in boxes and computer monitors when I’m trying to work. I actually spilled my glass of this strawberry,peanut butter & chia smoothie because I ran into a box.

Luckily it was super easy to make another one. Sometimes I make complex recipes and sometimes I make REALLY easy ones that taste like heaven. And that my friends is what this smoothie is. Plus, can you really go wrong with strawberries, peanut butter and chia seeds?

For those who don’t know, we’re staying in a temp apartment right next to ours until it’s rebuilt and ready. So everyday we sneak glances inside to see their progress. As of now, there is still no flooring, cabinets OR appliances. So I’m thinking our ETA is looking like mid August (so not the 6 weeks they promised us). As I was telling my friend Julie over brunch, it feels like we’re squatters who are paying rent.  I’m definitely doing my best to stay optimistic here but it’s hard to really feel comfortable “at home” when  you don’t feel like you have one!

But we’re lucky, we have a roof over our head, a kitchen to cook in and very beautiful lighting. So, things could be worse. I know that, but I miss wifi. And a couch. And a dining room table would be pretty cool too.

    I'm so sorry you're not feeling comfortable in your makeshift apartment...but you can still take WAY better pictures than me who has a fully furnished and well equipt apartment. ;)
