Baked Banana Oatmeal is THE BOMB

Good morning!! I am not a happy camper this morning because yet again, my toilets are both backed up. This happens a lot at my house and they can never really give me a reason why! So annoying… good thing I keep a home warranty contract with American Home Shield! That’s my only saving grace!! The company that was supposed to come out and fix it called today to set up an appointment for Thursday. Yep, THURSDAY, as in 2 days from now! Do they realize that both my toilets aren’t working?? Luckily, I got the AHS people on the case so hopefully they find someone else to come out! Alright, enough about toilets! Ha!


I told y’all last night that I would do something a little bit different for breakfast today. So I channeled my inner IGE and made Baked Banana Bread Oatmeal!! And it was AMAZING!!

Baked Banana Bread Oatmeal

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 2/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 banana mashed
  • 1/2 banana sliced for topping
  • raisins
  • splash of vanilla
  • dash of cinnamon

Mix everything except banana slices together and pour into oven safe dish. Place sliced bananas on top. Bake at 375* for 25 minutes.


Doesn’t that look awesome?!?

Of course I added a spoonful of Naturally More PB on top!!


OMG y’all! This was amazing!! Warm with a little crunch on top and on the inside creamy and gooey! This will be made a lot more for sure!!


And some yummy coffee on the side!

Check out my sweet puppy:


Such a cuddler!!


Not sure if I will be able to get my 7 miler in today or tomorrow. Either day is fine, tomorrow is supposed to be a little warmer and less windy so that might be nicer, but I would rather do it today!! It all deepens on when the plumber can come!! And the wait begins…


I am currently watching The Bachelor from last night! These girls are so crazy! Haha! I opted to watch 24 last night instead of The Bachelor and I’m glad I did! 24 is so good!!

Well, I really need to get to some school reading so I will catch y’all later!! Have a fabulous day!!


  1. Hey, awesome blog. Found you from Nurse on the Run.

  2. Yay glad you liked the oatmeal!!

    omg the Bachelor last night - DRAMA!! I wish Ali would just cool it and quit freaking out about how much she hates Vienna. Umm - you're there to maybe fall in love with a guy, not complain about how much you hate the other girls... She's so annoying!!

  3. CRNA--you rock! I'm sure school is intense. Are you able to work and do school at the same time? I thought about CRNA, but decided it isn't for me. I plan to go back for ARNP, probably adult. My school doesn't have acute care track anymore, unfortunately.

  4. I cannot believe that you have to wait until Thursday to get your toilets fix! That's crap! That oatmeal looks really good and sounds amazing. Might be worth trying on the weekend for me :)
    Good luck with the 7 miler...whenever you decided to run it!

  5. Nicole- No, we aren't allowed to work while going to school. I have no clue how you would have time to anyway!!

    Jocelyn- No kidding about the toilets!! I am kinda able to use one for now so I am surviving but am sure it's gonna quit working all together at any time! Yikes!! Hoping another company will be able to fix the issue sooner.

  6. Glad to introduce you to 24!!! I'll have to give you the story of Renee sometime:)

  7. YUM! I must try those oats!
