Hi friends!! Can you believe it’s almost Friday??

I was feeling really off this morning so I didn’t make it to my workout…what can you do? Always best to listen to your body and not push when it’s telling you to rest! So I slept in a bit, got ready for work, and made a bowl of banana oats…chia power was what I needed! 🙂


  • 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup organic fat-free milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • dash of vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced thin
  • chia seeds
  • topped with white chocolate peanut butter and some walnuts

Delicious, as usual, though I kind of dumped a ton of chia seeds in on accident…I tried to scoop some back out but that didn’t work out too well.

I also grabbed an iced coffee on my way in to work.

Once home I wasn’t feeling all that hungry…must’ve been the chia! 🙂 I had to run some errands so I ate some yogurt and grabbed a bar for the road.

It was my first time trying the pineapple flavor and it was really good, though I still prefer plain (with toppings added in).


And this candy bar disguised as a “cereal and milk” bar. 😉 It tasted ok but was definitely not a healthy choice!


My sweet tooth has definitely been in high gear lately!! You know those cookies I mentioned baking the other day? I ate five of them…in one day. Yup. And they weren’t bite-sized either! I blame hormones. 😉

Inspired by a magazine I was looking at the other day, I picked up this jar while I was out to use for laundry detergent!


I’m really liking the idea of using glassware to display everyday items, rather than hiding them in a drawer or cupboard. You’ll probably be seeing a lot more like this around my house! 🙂

We usually use liquid detergent but I recently hosted a Norwex party and got the powdered detergent. We haven’t tried it out yet but will soon. I got a ton of other cleaning cloths and products and will try to review some of them soon!
