Burning Eyes

I don’t know what was going on with my contacts this morning, but the first 2 times I tried to put them in, my eyes just started burning horribly! My eyes were tearing up and I had to take them back out (which is not fun when your eyes don’t want to open). I ended up just taking my shower without my contacts and tried again once I got out. My right eye is still bothering me a little, but not nearly as bad as before. It was so strange! I don’t know what happened. They felt fine all day yesterday and even when I took them out last night.

Nick and I are both having a nutty breakfast this morning:



Mine had

  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • cinnamon!
  • 3 Tbsp TJs nuts over raspberries mix (chocolate chips saved for top)
  • 3 strawberries chopped



I don’t know that you can beat melted chocolate for breakfast – it’s just the best way to start your day.

What’s your favorite oatmeal/cereal/yogurt topping?


  1. Hope your eyes are feeling better soon!

  2. Completely agree with you, I’ve just recently discovered I love dark chocolate in my breakfasts and yogurt mixes :)

  3. Hope your eyes stop burning soon!

    **Favorite oatmeal MIX-IN = pumpkin seed butter.

  4. I really like salted nuts and cranberries!
    I actually haven’t tried enough toppings…gotta get on that.

  5. Uhhh I hate contacts sometimes! I wish I could shower with mine in (or swim), – they always seem to get flooded out.

  6. LOVELY breakfast, and you know? I had the SAME thing happen with my contacts yesterday… I don’t know what causes it, but it STINKS!

  7. I don’t think I can choose just one. But I guess I’d have to go with strawberries. Or PB. or flax. Shoot! I can’t do this!

  8. That is the number one reason why I am so glad I don’t have to wear contacts! I so hope you get feeling better girl! Maybe try some cucumber slices over your eyes to help a bit???

    My favorite oatmeal topping is peanut or almond butter! I love when it melts into the hot oats :)

  9. That is the worst feeling in the entire world! It feels like a chemical burn in your eye and tying to pry your eye open isn’t fun either!

  10. Hope you feel better soon!

    My favorite oatmeal topping is banana and cinnamon!

  11. I love topping my oats with chopped apple, raisins, cinnamon and walnuts!
