Takin' It Easy

This morning has been so nice.

No alarm clock, lounging around, making breakfast, drinking coffee with my feet up on the ottoman…

I wish every day could be like this! It’s a good thing we were able to sleep in a little today because we have to leave Nick’s parents’ house tomorrow at 2 AM!!!

Since we had more time for breakfast today, we decided to cook the rest of the bacon and have a “Sunday” breakfast on Tuesday.


I finally finished off the cantaloupe, plus the last of the strawberries and had 2 small slices of bacon.


Plus 2 over easy eggs over oatbran! I did miss the oatbran on Sunday – it has a better flavor and texture and I really like it with the eggs.

And some coffee, obviously.


We’re up, fed, and showered so now it’s just time to finish packing and get everything in the car to head to Nick’s parents house.

What’s one thing you always take with you on a trip?

I’ve made list after list, and I still always feel like I’m going to forget something  :)
