Last Week Was Bananas & Why Lucy Hale Wishes She Were On Nashville

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room, shall we?IMG_20140308_102854_776 (1024x576)

And by elephant in the room, I mean banana(s) on the blog.IMG_5274 (1024x683)

These bananas may not be in pajamas (marching down the stairs), but they were making a VERY public appearance all over this kitchen last week.IMG_5118 (1024x683)

All three of the recipes I posted (and many of the pictures I put on Instagram) featured pistachios bananas.IMG_5479 (1024x683)

I commend you for not pointing this out in ‘please get some new material’ fashion.IMG_5674 (1024x683)

And yes, I did just go spontaneously go to the store for coffee and more bananas because I didn’t think I could make it another 24 hours without one.


This was right after I called Sister Smart to tell her we needed to discuss Jamie Lynn “former Disney Nickelodeon some tween-friendly TV station star and teen mom [slash] sister of Brit(ney) with a capital B” Spears as a country singer?jamielynn_twitter

Sorry Lucy Hale, I think you (and the twisted confusion that is Pretty Little Liars) are pretty awesome, but in the battle of TV actresses turned twangsters, Jamie Lynn and Hayden Panettiere have got you beat.

No, Hayden, even though I still think of you as the (save the) cheerleader (save the world) and legitimately think you are Juliette Barnes, I won’t put dirt on your grave just yet.

Especially because when I listen to it running, I sometimes start literally pounding my fist in the air, likely instilling some sort of strange fear in passersby.MVL_215_NASHVILLEDONTPUTDIR_MUSICVIDEO_db2e6d75-624a-4cc3-b368-946de9f01cc6_10008613_source

 I promise I actually had not one–IMG_5632 (1024x683)

–but TWO recipes tussling for preeminent position as a Monday post on this little ol’ blog.IMG_5828 (1024x682)

And neither one involved bananas.

But my stats-addled brain just really wanted to talk about much more pressing matters.IMG_5883 (1024x683)

Like JUAN-dering what is going to happen on The Bachelor tonight?!?! MV5BNzg2Njc4MjY2MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzUxOTQxMDE@._V1_SY317_CR12,0,214,317_

Or how good wine can be.IMG_20140307_193451_201

Or how Future Baby Niece Smart is going to be the most awkwardly best dressed small child ever as long as I am in charge of her style.IMG_5891 (1024x683)

That other stuff can wait.

Yes, everything else can wait. Love that more of us are doing this. And wine :)

LOOOOOVE Hayden!! She’s one of my favorite actresses right now and I think her voice is AMAZING on Nashville! Granted I can never be too sure how much of it really is her…but alas, I still rock out to it!

Omg I want to rip my ears off when I hear that Lucy Hale song. She just CAN’T…sorry (not sorry)


Jen@HealthyFoodandFamily March 10, 2014 at 2:29 pm

I am too excited about the drama that will be sure to happen on the Bachelor tonight!

Amen to #publicbananas, Juliette Barnes and anything involving delaying the inevitable. For example, I should be grocery shopping or making granola, but instead I’m going to lie in bed, read blogs, books and perhaps take a nap.
