Spring Break

Hey friends! Guess what?!? Today is the first day of Spring Break! Yay!! But first, let’s back up to yesterday’s eats…


I had the most AWESOME Oatmeal creation yesterday morning!! Mocha Oats!!


This was AMAZING!!! In the mix:

  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee
  • 1/3 cup Soymilk
  • 1 TBSP Cocoa Powder
  • Dash of Cinnamon and Vanilla
  • Toppings: 2 tsp Cinnamon Raisin Swirl PB, 1 tsp Barney Butter, coconut

YUM, YUM, YUM!! Please try this and let me know what you think!! Out of this world!!




Since I was going to be at school all day, I just packed a jumble of snacks.


I packed:

  • A Cinnamon Raisin English Muffin with cream cheese
  • Carrots with Barney Butter
  • An Orange
  • Chocolate Brownie PURE bar
  • Buffalo Cheddar Popcorn

I should have packed more because this definitely didn’t hold me over all day! Luckily, at my afternoon class, they had snacks! So, I also had some un-pictured goldfish, pretzels, and mini Twix’s!!


I was so exhausted when I got home so I just made another bowl of oats! I know, 2 bowls in 1 day. I also had PB with every meal today! Yikes! PB overload! Haha :)


Banana Oatmeal with a scoop of Cinnamon Swirl PB underneath!


I got up around 7am this morning and did a 4 mile treadmill run since it was raining outside. I wasn’t too excited to be stuck on the treadmill, but at least it let me catch up on last night’s Grey’s and Private Practice! I also walked 1 more mile after my run so I could finish up my shows :)



A cold cereal bowl! In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup Kashi H2H
  • 1/2 cup Multigrain Cheerios
  • 1/4 cup PB Granola
  • 1 pear
  • 1 cup of Almond Milk


It was yummy!!

On the agenda for the day: Go pick out wood floors!! I finally got a better estimate so now I need to pick out the color I want from a different store! Luckily, I will have my mom with me for a second opinion! I am so bad at making decisions! Haha!

Well, that’s all for now! Hope y’all have a FAB Friday!!


  1. Yum!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. That first oatmeal recipe looks so good. Thanks for posting. I did oats in a jar last week and it was so filling. Buffalo cheddar popcorn sound yummy too.

  3. I miss spring break...I could totally use one right now!

  4. What is Barney butter?!! I definitely need to try that breakfast concoction you had yesterday! Yummy.

    I agree with Susan..I miss the days of Spring Break. I may go back to teaching though, which would let me have one again :)

  5. Is it difficult to eat so healthy?? Do you ever just crave a fat buttery piece of garlic bread? Lord have mercy. I don't know if I could do without breads. They are my world. :)

  6. Katie- Barney Butter is an Almond Butter, but tastes different than most Almond Butters. Very yummy! I can only find it at Fresh Market though.

  7. Good to know. thank you :) I'm going to try to go to Fresh Market this weekend anyway...do you ever get the freshly ground PB or almond butter?? any other suggestions while I'm there?

  8. Katie- The freshly ground AB is very good!! I love stuff out of the bulk bins, like trail mixes and such. A lot of good oatmeal mix ins!!

  9. Those mocha oats sound wonderful, I've never thought to put coffee in the mix before...I'm definitely going to have to try that one!

  10. I've been so MIA! Glad to see you are still eating well :) Have a fantastic spring break!!
