Monday Blues

I cannot believe our weekend in San Francisco is already over and I’m back at work!

The past 3 days went by so fast – too fast – and I’m not ready to be back in my “real world” yet  :(

BUT, Monday is here…which means I’m going to be working in 40 minutes. And that means oatmeal for breakfast!


I enjoyed every breakfast I had in SF (especially that one at the hotel Saturday morning), but there’s just something about oatmeal that says “welcome home”.


It’s like a big hug in a bowl, isn’t it? That’s how I see it.

Today’s was pretty basic – I had 2 bananas that were getting ripe when we left, so I stored them in the fridge over the weekend while we were gone. This one was perfect to use today.


  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1.5 Tbsp crunchy pb
  • cinnamon


I’ve got tons of pictures to sort through today, on top of working, so I’m going to start doing that before work starts at 8.  I guess I better make some tea to get me going this morning.

I also have to get groceries at some point today since we have nothing in the house – we’ll see how that goes  :)  It’s going to be busy!


How was your weekend?


  1. Good luck with your busy day!

  2. I definitely find it hard to get back to work after amazing weekends like the one you had! Actually, now that I think about it, I find it hard to go back to work after almost any weekend. ;)

    Have a great day!

  3. It always sucks coming back from a vacation–but look at the bright side, at least you had the awesome opportunity to go! :-)

  4. I have the Monday blues, too. :( I can’t imagine coming back from San Fran!

    Oh and yes!! Oatmeal has a very “homie” feeling to it!! I just love it and look forward to every weekend because of it!! Can’t wait to have it everyday next week, since I’m on holiday at our house in France and plenty of time to make my favorite breakfast every day! Yay!! :D

  8. yummy oats! good luck with your busy day!!!

    It was rough waking up this morning, but each day that passes brings me one step closer to thanksgiving break anddddd christmas break (when my Boy comes home!)….so I just try to stay busy and make them go by faster!!!

  9. i always hate the first day back to real life after something fun!
    at least you started it with a good breakfast!

  10. Oatmeal is a great way to start off the day! Your bowl looks especially yummy. Have a great day! :)

  11. That oatmeal totally does look like it’s saying “welcome home”

    I’m sad Foodbuzz is over and now it’s time to go back to reality. I’m not ready yet!

  12. Oatmeal is so comforting that is does say home. I love that you made the banana and PB look pretty too :-)

  13. My weekend was no where near as awesome as yours :-P Oatmeal is definitely the ultimate “I’m home” food

  14. My weekend was pretty uneventful, unlike yours! Can’t wait to see the pics. Also, oatmeal = yum!
