Up in the Air.

At the moment I am somewhere up in the air, possibly looking like a hot mess for an 8 a.m. flight w/ seester to California.

It’s work business.

But there’s also some vacation time.

I’m a big preparer.

I loooooove to plan ahead.

If I don’t…I most likely will have an anxiety attack.

When your extended family is full of procrastinators who basically wait until the week of a dang wedding to send out invitations, you can bet there are some arguments.

Okay, there have been some full blown knock down drag-outs.

Especially between me and my cousins.

I mean, is it too much to pick up the phone, call me, and say “hey, we are meeting for dinner at 7…be there.”

But noooooooo, they’d rather call me 30 minutes before and tell me to meet them in 15 minutes at the restaurant that is about 45 minutes aways from my house.

Did I mention I’m a planner?

You can bet I planned for this trip.

Well, snack wise.

With my little celiac seester in tow…

nourishment is top priority.

We are going to be on the go 100% so I thought it’d be nice to have some snacks to devour along the way.

I’m the queen of snacks.

What…you think I was going to try to hustle a 10 pound brick sized loaf of banana bread through airport security?

Psh…ya, you aren’t getting my banana bread Mr. TSA.

Don’t even try to tell me you are on a paleo diet.

  1. Oh man. These things look awesome.
    I love coconut + banana bread. It’s perfect. And I really don’t like making a whole loaf of banana bread, because it never goes away! xD I’m pinning & bookmarking this, and I’m totally going to make these soon. 🙂
    Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!
