Yesterday I took a big leap: I told people (my close friends) that I have been blogging and I gave them the address. I quickly sent the email before I had another second to question it. Up until this moment, the only people who read whatever randomness I have to share had been my husband, Bridget, and a handful of people who I have never met. To these people, I say THANK YOU! Thank you all for being my audience during my blog’s infancy. I appreciate you and hope you stick around to see where this goes!
Wednesdays have become my rest days, and let me tell you – sleeping that extra 45 minutes was ah-mazing! The break in the middle of the week works for me, and hopefully I will be more enthusiastic tomorrow at 5:00am. Getting ready at home in the morning also means eating something other than my beloved overnight oats, so I made pumpkin protein pancakes from Julie’s blog. They were fantastic and a great way to start my morning. They also paired perfectly with the pumpkin spice coffee I am drinking. Yes, I had a fall-inspired breakfast in February (which is technically still winter) on a day that felt more like spring. Confused much?
Speaking of overnight oats, here’s my basic arrangement:
-1/2 cup of oats
-1/2 cup of milk (I use almond or cow)
-1/2 cup of yogurt (flavored or plain)
-1/2 tablespoon of chia seeds
-one banana sliced thinly
-one tablespoon of peanut butter or sunflower seed butter
Add-ins may include more fruit (frozen blueberries), canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, honey, maple syrup, a Splenda packet, or jam.
Because Brody had other commitments last night and didn’t get home until 9:30pm, he is making me dinner tonight: salmon, asparagus, and parmesan couscous. There may be some wine and dessert (cheesecake or Kit Kats) consumed as well.
And it is time for dinner…night!
