Home Sweet Home

FINALLY! I’m home! In the last few hours at school, I wasn’t sure I was going to make it. I got in around 9:30 last night and felt a huge wave of relief.


I fired up the BIG crockpot last night to ensure I would have a nice comforting breakfast in the morning. I had apple-cinnamon oats with Barney Butter and craisins.




Raleigh greeted me last night as she usually does by jumping all over the place. It’s a joyous reunion…sometimes she whimpers as if she is crying with joy. Or at least I like to think that. Makes me feel like a good “mom.”  🙂


My Mom and I are off to take her to the groomer. Her hair is so long you can barely see her face!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!

Ok, not really…but it came pretty darn close.  I decided to put apple in my oats this morning instead of banana for a little something different. I LOVE this in the crock pot (go figure) when you put the apples in over night to cook with the oats and the microwave version was a pretty close second.

Here’s what it had:

-1 serving of cinnamon crock pot oats

-1 small chopped fuji apple

-1 tbs ground flax

-brown sugar


And the final product with toppings

– 4 cinnamon almonds

– 1 tbs peanut butter

– dried cranberries


The apple added so much volume to my oats! It took FOREVER to eat this 🙂

Big test tonight: Business Finance. Perpetuities, anyone?

Have a fabulous Monday.

My appetite is here and in FULL force. This past weekend, my eating times were strange and I never felt very hungry. I’m glad to report that my appetite is back in action.

I woke up in the middle of the night (4 am to be exact) absolutely STARVING! It was a little distracting but I managed to fall back asleep until 7am. For breakfast I had oats in hopes (rhyme?) that it would hold me over until lunch. Typically it does. But NOO.


A mere 2.5 hours later…Peach Kefir smoothie with half a banana and frozen mango.


AND…half an Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel English Muffin with a thin layer of PB.


This should hold me over for a late lunch.

Test Update: 1 test down, 3 to go. The next three are next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Let the studying begin. Can’t wait to be done and get back home! Have a great Monday

Festive Breakfast

Good morning! Got a bit of what feels like a late start…I didn’t wake up until 8. I wasn’t hungry at all so I didn’t eat breakfast until 9.

In light of Thanksgiving and soon to be Christmas, I had a rather festive bowl of oats this morning. I made a batch of cinnamon oatmeal earlier this week in my little 2 quart crock pot. This morning I heated up a portion and then stirred in pumpkin and banana. On top was about 1 tablespoon of organic peanut butter (only two ingredients on the list; peanuts and salt), and a sprinkle of dried cranberries and chocolate chips.


Yum…there’s nothing better than melty peanut butter! I like to get a little on my spoon for each bite. Can’t taste it when it’s all stirred in.

Today’s agenda includes studying, hopefully some Christmas movie-watching, and a trip to the mall for a pet adopt-a-thon for the local animal shelter. Have a great Saturday. Anyone doing anything exciting?
