Ready to Go

Woke up this morning ready to embrace the day!

It does help that it’s Saturday, the start of the weekend, and the first full Saturday of college football :)

Nick and I are working on stuff around the house this morning before heading to his parents’ for the weekend, but breakfast was the first priority.


There were 3 blueberry pancakes leftover, so Nick heated those up in the oven while I worked on my oatmeal. We needed to finish off the last of the peaches in the house, so my bowl was full of banana, peaches, and almond butter.

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch salt
  • cinnamon
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1 peach, diced
  • 1-2 Tbsp almond butter


I’ve got coffee and am ready to go!


On the list for today:

  • Label jam jars – done!
  • Mow lawn (Nick is doing that right now)
  • Shower – soon
  • Pack – started
  • Pick up tomatoes from market – on our way out of town
  • Road trip to Nick’s parents’ house
  • Start the weekend!!!

Do you have any fun plans this weekend?
