My FIRST bowl of Savory Oats! YUM!



1. Get your Ingredients: Cinnamon Swirl Oatmeal, Raisins, and a Sweet Potato.

2. Wash your tater and poke holes in it.

3. Microwave for about 6 minutes.

4. Boil water and mix in oatmeal.

5. Add the middle of the tater to your oatmeal and feel free to add more cinnamon! (I SURE DID!!!)

6. Top it off with the raisins and swirl around.



I have seen this around the blog world for a while now and I finally tried it today. SO glad I did! It was DELICIOUS and filling too!

Have you ever made savory oats?

Foodie ABC's

foodie abc's I love fun surveys. ESPECIALLY when they're all about food! I found this Foodie ABC's on another blog and thought it would make a lovely Saturday morning post! A is for Apple, what’s your favorite variety? HONEYCRISP by far! SO juicy and crunchy! I LOVE apples and usually eat one daily. B: is for Bread, regardless of nutrition, calories, or whole grains what is your favorite type to have a nice big piece of? Those rolls from Lambert’s restaurant. Yes, the one where they THROW THE ROLLS! That was such a fun place to eat! The rolls were DELICIOUS, esp with a squirt of honey…YUM! C: is for Cereal what is your favorite kind currently (just one!) Currently-
This could possibly be the hardest question ever. I am obsessed with cereal. But, if I had to pick just one, it would be Trader Joes High Fiber Fruit and Nut Medley. They are perfect for my yogurt messes because I don’t have to buy separate raisins and nuts to add into my yogurt messes. D: is for Doughnuts, you migh…

Tremendous Thursday!

On Thursday, I spent the day with my little cousin, Anna Kate, and my Aunt Toni! We went to California Pizza Kitchen for lunch.I ordered the Waldorf Chicken Salad and it was good!

Of course, we had to take some pictures...isn't Anna Kate the most precious little thing ever?!?

After lunch, we went to a pottery place and painted pottery. I painted a butterfly for Anna Kate to hang in her room. Anna Kate painted a cupcake - it was also a box that she can store little trinkets inside. how neat! :)

It was a great day!

I'm not makin' this stuff up..

Blake asked me a few weeks ago if I would paint his nails. Of course I said, "No way buddy! I can't do that." He got upset and said he was gonna ask his mom. That was fine with me. Well, today I get to his house and as SOON as his mom opens the front door, he says, "MOM SAID YOU CAN PAINT MY NAILS!" I just cracked up laughing.

His mom then proceeded to say only ONE nail on each hand and wash it off afterwards. HAHA!

so...what is the first thing we did?

(He's trying to smile, but the sun is right in his eyes! HAHA)

I never thought in a million years, I would be painting a little boys toenails because he WANTED to...hahaha. Now, I didn't say that I haven't tried to paint my little brother's nails before...but that's when he is asleep and I trick him...muahahaha...don't think I ever succeeded though. He either woke up or my mom wouldn't let me.


Have you ever tricked somebody while they were sleeping?

Random Rant..

I decided to try the Arby's Chicken Salad wrap, although I am clearly in love with Subway's. But, I was going to keep an open mind and I did. After eating this, I have decided that I MIGHT actually like Arby's version better. (GASP!) It has chicken, pecans, raisins, celery, and GRAPES! I think the grapes were a big plus, but the pecans were also a great addition. After contemplating a while afterwards, I have come to a conclusion. I will be satisfied eating at Subway OR Arbys. Too bad this decision couldn't be made when I was younger and would ONLY go to Subway on long car trips with the family. (whoops! haha)

I LOVE it when all my mags come in the mail. I also subscribe to Women's Health, but that one is in my car right now. I clearly have an obsession with magazines, but hey, it's a good obsession! :)

My brother was in town, so we had a fun time hanging out together with the ENTIRE crew! :) My mom made that super delicious cheese dip! It's actually super ea…


So, I don't know if I have mentioned this before, but I have NO SELF CONTROL when it comes to strawberries. I LOVE THEM SOOOOOOO MUCH!!! Well, the lady I babysit for TOTALLY surprised me with this HUGE box today!!! HOW SWEET OF HER!! I literally jumped up and shouted, "OMG! Thank you so so so much!"

Also, my mom sent me this from a teacher at her school. The kids are in kindergarten who wrote these...
So with age, comes wisdom. These are the new endings to time treasured clich├ęs that we always hear…..they are pretty funny! (Where possible, I tried to keep the spelling the same way it was originally written). Enjoy! An apple a day…. …grows. …is great. …is just enuf of fruit.
A bird in the hand… …scares your mom away. … keeps you sick. … freakes you out. … makes p**p in your hand.
Caught between a rock… …and another rock. …and a shark.
Every rose has… … …
