A Quick WIAW!

I started this day with the full intention of documenting everything I ate with a photo, but that didn't really turn out as I hoped due to my scatterbrained mind and constantly thinking about tomorrow --> Nick is coming for the weekend!! I'm more than excited, obviously. 

On to the eats


Oats In A Jar! (OIAJ) + Coffee
I finished off what was left of the PB&Co Dark Chocolate Dreams (about 2 tbsp) with some hot stovetop cinnamon vanilla oats.

- 1/4 C Rolled Oats
- 1/4 C Oat Bran
- 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
- 1/2 C water
- 1/2 banana diced and melted into oats on stovetop
- sprinkling of cinnamon
- tsp. vanilla extract
- a bit more milk added at end of cooking to add more moisture

poured right into the PB jar!!

on top:
- half of sliced banana
- raisins


Veggie Salad & Iced Tea

- Bed of spinach
- half a tomato, sliced
- 2 baby bell peppers (I used one red and one yellow)
- 3 baby carrots, diced
- kalamata olives
- feta
- cucumber ranch dressing

+ a few pickings of some diced cantaloupe (not pictured)

Snackykins (pardon me)

Frozen Grapes + Fresh Cantaloupe

Not pictured -- complete fail

Checking out the Menu at Ruby Tuesday with the girls :)

Most fun ride ever. WOO

SO HOT here on Monday and Tuesday. What to do? Go to the beach of course!
Me and the girls I nanny --> probably the cutest ever.


  1. What is this chocolate peanut butter thing!?!? That looks amazing but I've never heard of it before!

    I'm new here but I really like the idea behind your blog. And I'm glad to here you're discovering a much healthier relationship with food. :) My boyfriend and I tend to cook a lot and I post some of our recipes on my blog. Some of them aren't quite on the healthy side (pumpkin cheesecake) but we tend to focus on wholesome home-cooked meals. Here's a link to my Recipes page if you want to check them out:

  2. oh my gosh, your dinner was just like mine, minus the ciabatta bread. i wish i had some though... :( for my OIAJ, i like to cook them the night before and eat them cold. if they have enough flavorings its surprisingly good! check out my blog: Beautiful Busy Bee. It's new and i need followers!

  3. awwww fun! =) We had/have the same major! =) lol <3 Your salad has me craving tomatoes like woah! I've been waiting for the ones in my garden to turn red for. ev. er!

  4. your eats look fabulous! especially that packed salad, yum!

    i bet you're so excited for the boy to come. have a great weekend!!

  5. Ahh! Your post just gave me the best overnight oats idea! I'm so excited :D

  6. Cheesy Miley Cyrus movies are the best. The Last Song had me and my friend tears...which was just a tad embarrassing.

  7. your salad looks so bomb! i always struggle with making myself eat salad because they bore me but yours looks delish.
    what is going on in that ride?! i can't even tell what it does but it looks like you're having a blast =)
