Quick 'n' Tasty Chicken Avocado Sandwich

Toward the end of my work shift tonight, I was hit with massive avocado cravings. I could probably blame it on a five minute scroll through Pinterest on my break or even my bf's nobody-makes-it-better guacamole. But I needed avocado and I needed it NOW. I couldn't get it now. So right after work I hit up Target to get the goods. You see, in my last fifteen minutes at work, I conjured up a sandwich idea that sounded irresistible. And it turned out delicious!

Ancient Grains bread. This stuff is my favorite. I like my bread dark and grainy - and this stuff puts me in touch with my inner ancient Roman. (Haha.)

Deli Fresh shaved chicken breast. Ready-to-eat, no-cooking-required deli meat is ideal for my bare kitchen right now.

Laughing Cow Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese Spread. I could eat those little wedges in one sitting. But that would be bad.

Spinach leaves. Because I love my spinach.

And a sliced up avocado, of course.

I threw it all onto a sandwich, added some baby carrots as a side, and gobbled up. The avocado hit the spot. And I'm rather proud that I came up with this sandwich idea all by myself. (It's not often that I devise recipes.)

Yes. I ate my sandwich and carrots on a pan. Don't make fun. I have no plates right now. Haha.

If you get the hankering for avocado, I highly recommend this sammy! I'll be eating another tomorrow!



DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
