“celebrate we will, cause life is short but sweet for certain.”


“closing time, every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”



“may you build a ladder to the stars, and climb on every rung. may you stay forever young.”



“long live the walls we crashed through, while the kingdom lights shine just for me and you. i was screaming long live all the magic we made, and bring on all the pretenders. one day, we will be remembered.”


congratulations graduates of 2011

Happy Saturday blenddds (:

How has it gone for yall so far? It is sooo nice and sunny in Cincinnati right now! I love ittt (: Hopefully, the weather will keep up til tomorrow!

So I sortakindamaybedefinitely forgot and ran out of time to post in the last few days! Whoooops! I’m not perfect at this yet, but whateverrr. But I’ve been too excited to focus on posting these past few days! Lets do a quick little run down (:

FRIDAY: Senior Awards Assembly, Graduation Practice, & Alumni Induction Ceremony! I’m officially an alum — I’ve got the mug to prove it (:


(please ignore the messy hair…. hadn’t showered yet!)

SATURDAY: work, hanging out with friends, working out, spending time with ze family at my brother’s lax game! [grandparents are in town for the graduation!]

SUNDAY: 12:30 — lifer picture [kids who have been at the school for 12+ years], class picture at 1, then GRADUATION MASS starts at 2! I honestly never thought that this day would come… it’s so weird to know that next year, I’ll go off to college and not back to the small school I’ve always known where everyone knows everyone else. The weirdest thing is it totally hasn’t sunken in yet! After the ceremony, there’s a reception at school, and one of my best friends is having a party at an old downtown hotel and I can’t wait!

MONDAY: Happy Memorial Day! My grandpa that’s in town is a World War II vet so we’ll be spending tons of time with him!

But how about a recap of the last few days – when I actually knew where my camera was slash remembered to use it, that is (:


OH HEY THERE, dessert from Wednesday (: You were great, you know that right? Another bread bowl from the wonderful+incredible Gracie! This time, I actually used whole wheat flour, didn’t microwave the banana beforehand, and topped it with nut butter+chocolate paste! Oh… and got just a little bit impatient, so I didn’t bake it all the way! #whoops #thatsmylife


Now, I don’t wanna say that I had a burst of genius Thursday morning, but….


I MADE VEGAN FRENCH TOAST. WHAAAT?! Oh yes I did, and stuck a grilled banana in the middle. I died. And then begged for more.

Vegan French Toast

  • Two slices sprouted wheat bread
  • 2T non-dairy milk (unsweetened original Almond Breeze for me)
  • 1t vanilla extract (or a mix of almond+vanilla)
  • toppings – WHATEVER YOU WANT!

1. Mix milk and vanilla extract in a small bowl.

2. Place bread in a shallow dish. I used a 9×11 pyrex dish, and it fit perfectly. Pour mixture over bread slices so that they’re adequately covered. As long as there’s milk mixture sitting ontop of the bread, you’ll be fine.

3. Flip bread in dish so both sides get soaked.

4. Put bread in a heated (medium heat works) skillet with soy butter or coconut oil or cooking spray.

5. Cook for two minutes on one side and flip. Cook for an additional minute.

6. Surrrrrve it up!


I see you in there, banana. And I’m excited. I topped mine with chocolate paste & strawberry fruit spread! I’m seriously obsessed with this whole banana+chocolate+strawberry combo. OHHH YEAH. #getonmylevel

I need to stop using twitter hashtags outside of twitter.

Lunch (from Thursday, I think?) was roasted cauliflower, a salad beast, and Zevia. I’d never had roasted cauliflower before, and OH MY GOD IT WAS SO GOOD. Like seriously?! I only did it for like 15 minutes too! Impatient, I know. Salad had spinach, bell peppers, black beans, tomatoes, carrots, and maybe something else? I totally can’t remember! This lunch made me soooo happy and I was soooo glad it stopped raining long enough for me to take a picture.

SO embarrassing story? I basically haven’t taken any foodie pictures since then… Oopsies (:

Anyways, I’m off to have dinner and then go to my brother’s lacrosse game! Playoffs!

What’s your favorite vegetable to roast?
