Shiny and New

I woke up this morning to Nick’s alarm.

Apparently, I never turned mine on last night. The only good thing is that I  work from home today, so I don’t have to leave the house right now. I’m happy I’m not rushing around this morning, but that’s what I’m going to be doing all day!

My parents + sister arrive later today, so while working from home, I’m going to try to get the house in order.

I’m going to need a lot of coffee today  ;)

For breakfast, I couldn’t decide between pumpkin oats and eggs, but a shopping trip last night decided for me. Nick and I bought a stainless steel pan last night to replace our biggest non-stick skillet. The non-stick layer was scratched and starting to chip off and we’ve been wanting to get a stainless steel pan for a while.

If you’re looking for one – go to TJMaxx! We got a great one for only $25. They have some there that are still over $100, but there are also some great deals.

Since we had the new pan to use, eggs it was.


I cooked Nick the last few pieces of bacon we had while my oatbran cooked and I got started on the eggs.


2 over easy eggs, oatbran, and crushed red pepper + salt.


Plus my half of an orange.

I haven’t had eggs like this in a while! It’s a good way to start my day.


What are you looking forward to this weekend?

  14. How do you make oatbran? I bought some at TJ’s the other week but there are no instructions on how to make it on the bag. Frustrating!

    This weekend Hunni and I were supposed to be out of town so we have the weekend free to ourselves. We are planning on some us time with walking the dogs, movies, dinner out and just relaxing. It’s better than having to drive the 4 hours each way to the day conference we were supposed to go to.

    Hope you guys have a good weekend!

  18. This weekend I’m in a wedding on Halloween, and on Sunday the husband and I are going to two family events-his mom’s birthday brunch and my grandmom’s dinner.

  19. Thanks for the heads up about the pan! A TJ Maxx just opened up near me (coincidentally right next door to the new Whole Foods… could be very deadly).

    I’m looking forward to carving a pumpkin and watching some scary movies!

  20. I was in TJMax this weekend and saw SOOO many awesome pots and pans! I’m going this weekend to pick some up!
