Bread + Butter

As far as I know, our internet is back up and running like normal. Let’s hope it stays that way, at least until I get this post up.

This morning was  a little rushed as Nick had to go early to church to do sound and I was going along to help set up, too.


I had some oatmeal with almost the last of my Perk up your Trek Mix from TJs. All of the chocolate covered espresso beans are officially gone :( I’m definitely going to buy this one when I get to TJs again!

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • pinch of cinnamon sugar
  • TJ’s mix


I took coffee with me to church and ended up spilling about 1/4 of it down my sweater because my thermos was leaking…but the rest of it got saved, and there are no stains on my sweater :)

We had to run by Petsmart on the way home to pick up more treats for Maggie and I had a few more groceries to pick up, so lunch ended up being a little late.


It was delicious, though!


Nick made some bbq chicken, while I made some “baked beans” and heated up some corn.


We also had some of my homemade sourdough bread with Kerrygold butter – yum. Sour from the bread, salty from the butter…it was perfect.

Nick and I just finished cleaning the house, and I’ve got laundry working until around 6:45.

We’re meeting some friends for dinner at The Palisades! They’ve never been, and we love it, so it should be a good time. Plus, they have live local music on Sunday nights, so it should be a lot of fun.


*Don’t forget to enter my giveaway! I’m picking a winner tomorrow.

  10. I am so excited that I am going to TJ’s tomorrow and I am DEFINITELY getting this mix. Choc espresso beans are some of my favorite things on this earth so putting them in a trail mix has to be phenomenal.
