In a Rush

Well…I did not get up on time today! I hit the snooze 3 times, which makes my alarm just turn off, and I ended up not getting up until Nick’s alarm went off!

The good thing?

I had oatmeal waiting for me in the fridge.

The bad thing?

I still had to decide on toppings  :)


I heated up another serving of my carrot cake oatmeal (still have 1 left!) with a bit of water in the microwave.


My toppings today were:

  • chopped pecans
  • coconut
  • drizzle of real maple syrup!!!


The maple syrup was awesome in this! I should use it on my oatmeal more often.


What are your plans for this weekend?
