Vanilla Lemon Chia Smoothie

You know when inanimate objects are trying to ruin your life? Me too.

So there is this interstate that encircles Charlotte like a ring of hellfire. You’ve probably heard about it because any time I’m anywhere near it I have a public temper tantrum. I do everything in my power to avoid I-485, and if it were a person I would punch it in its stupid face. But some days I just can’t avoid it, and today was that day. At rush hour. With no air conditioning. In North Carolina.

I decided I had two choices on this fateful voyage: 1) unleash a rage of fury and frustration upon the only person who would listen and suffer (myself) OR… 2) dance around shamelessly to all the fun new songs on the radio right now.

I chose dancing.

By the time I got to dinner with my mom, uncle, brother and niece, I had already sweat straight through everything I was wearing. It’s hard to tell if it was from un-airconditioned Carolina heat or just dancing really hard in a seated position, but one thing is certain: I won this round, 485.

I don’t know about you but I think this little happy-go-lucky lemon smoothie is bopping right along to Iggy Azalea too. Taste this gold…

  1. Love that song. I don’t even care that the radio plays it a million times. Cannot stop listening to it.

    Lemon juice and almond milk in a smoothie together? Reminds me of that time Sandra Lee made cocktails with heavy cream and lemonade- YIKES. I do love that drunk ass Sandra Lee though
