I’m a Little Kid.

29 Jun

Good morning, bloggies! How’s your morning going? Mine’s going pretty well – just finished up my morning coffee and breakfast.

I enjoyed a heavenly little treat for bfast this morning, and it brought back memories from my childhood. The star of the show: chocolate milk. However, this time it was chocolate almond milk. And it.was.delicious!

Cereal & Chocolate Almond Milk

Organic Flax Plus Multibran is a fabulous cereal I picked up from Trader Joe’s – where else?! And although I LOVE unsweetened almond milk, I decided to try chocolate. And thank the Lord I did. Mmm.

This little combination is quite tasty – besides having it for breakfast this morning, I had it as an afternoon snack yesterday. The cereal is full of fiber, so it’s a filling breakfast. Don’t worry though, I added a granny smith apple to my bfast to get a serving of fruit! 😉

I felt young again by eating this! And ’twas a good feeling.

I’m figuring out the game plan now for the day. I might hit up a Zumba class at my gym – not quite sure yet. I also need to stop at Target some time this week and am wondering if today will be the day. I could spend HOURS in Target. Anyone out there with me on that one?!

I hope you all have a wonderful morning!


Oatmeal Completes Me.

Good morning!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! What did you do?!

If you’re catching up from the weekend, check out these posts:  my review of Body Step and find out the best time to grocery shop.

My morning has been pretty low-key thus far. It took me a few snooze buttons to finally get out of bed – but luckily, I had my husband waiting for me in the kitchen with a nice cup of joe. That was all the motivation I needed, folks.

So as you know, I’m unemployed. Pretty cool, huh?! 😉 I’ve mentioned this before, but I get up every morning with my husband to enjoy coffee with him. I think it’s important to stick to a routine, even though I have no specific commitments throughout the day. There is no reason to sleep the day away – things need to get done. Like find a job, work out and do laundry (which by the way, a load is already in the dryer!).

But, friends, I digress. Let me get to the point of this post. Oatmeal completes me. Nothing keeps me fuller longer than a great bowl of oats.

Oatmeal and Almond Buttah

Into the mix:

-half a banana mashed

-1/4 cup of old-fashioned oats

-1/2 cup water


-tablespoon of almond butter (my fave)

It’s absolutely delicious and completely satisfying. I know a lot of bloggers find it hard to have hot oats in the summer months. Me? I find them too delicious to give up for summer!

What’s your favorite satisfying breakfast?

Hello, Joe.

I start my morning the same way every day.

With a hot cup of joe, splashed with a little soy creamer – and always in this mug.

We’ve established the fact that I’m currently in-between jobs for summer (unemployed, if you will!). This little fact does not stop me from waking up at the crack of dawn to enjoy coffee with the husband before he leaves for work.

It’s a simple joy, really. But it’s a routine that always puts a smile on my face.

Plan for the day: job searching (when am I not?) and the husband and I have our church’s young adult small group tonight. It’s good for my soul.

Have a lovely day!
