Hello, Monday! 😎
Sorry that I didn’t post about dinner last night. It ended up being a really late night for me– plus, I still needed to write my Health post for the week. If you’re curious, Mal and I ate dinner at my mom’s house last night, which I wrote about over at Trading Up Downtown.
When I was at my mom’s house last night, she pulled out an old-school favorite of mine: a Pocket Rocker! Total blast from the past, right? My mom was cleaning the attic the other day and stumbled upon this gem. Surprisingly, it still works!
I used to love my Pocket Rocker! I’d put it in the basket on the front of my bike and ride all over the neighborhood, rocking out to Tiffany, The Bangles, Debbie Gibson, Belinda Carlisle, and Whitney Houston. I thought I was SO cool with my Pocket Rocker and banana seat bike. Man, those were the days!
This morning, I rocked the Oats in a Jar for breakfast. My beloved Nuttzo was just about gone, so I used the semi-empty jar for my oats.
In the mix:
- 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup oat bran
- 1/3 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp flax
- 2 tbsp chopped walnuts
I also enjoyed a wonderful homemade iced latte with breakfast.
Oatmeal Seed Extravaganza
As you probably know, my blog buddy, Kath, and I both love chia seeds and flax in our morning bowl of oats, so we arranged a special deal with OpenSky: chia seeds and flax seeds are 30% off from now thru midnight on Tuesday!!! If you’ve been meaning to stock up, a 1/2 pound of organic chia seeds AND a pound of organic flax seeds is just $13 for both. There’s only 20 bundles available, so act fast!
Question of the Day
What do you consider the “coolest” toy from your childhood?
P.S. I have my second check-in for Lose the Dough this afternoon. 😯 Wish me luck!
