Mornin’ sunshine!

Or rather, mornin’ bitter cold! It was absolutely freezing on my morning Mom walk today – I even had to bust out a winter coat to keep warm! 8O

It’s days like this when I consult my scarf stash to select a pretty, yet functional, piece to wear for optimal warmness during the day.

I love keeping a variety of scarves on hand to quickly throw on, on my way out the door. Scarves are inexpensive, come in a variety of colors and patterns, and just kind of spice up whatever you’re wearing that day.

Most importantly, they keep you WARM! My office is usually freezing cold – I keep a space heater running under my desk to stay cozy during the day – but a scarf totally helps too. I think I’ll rock this soft, purple one today!

Yesterday’s BB overnight oats were so incredibly tasty, I decided to bake up a batch this morning - it’s been ages since I’ve had baked oatmeal!

In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup each of water & unsweetened vanilla almond breeze
  • vanilla
  • 1 banana
  • blueberries
  • sliced almonds

Mix oats, water, almond milk and vanilla. Slice in banana, mash until chunky and gently fold in some blueberries. Bake @ 375 for 10 minutes, add sliced almonds on top, and bake for 10-15 more minutes. Ready!

OH MY…YUM!!! What a decadent baked oatmeal breakfast! Totally loving this combo! And since I actually made this last night, all I had to do this morning was re-heat it for 1.5 minutes in the microwave. Soooo creamy and sweet – with no added sugar! Love. ♥

For lunch today, I packed a very picnic-esque lunch. :) Chicken Salad Sandwich and Carrots with Almond Butter.

Greek yogurt is such a fabulous swap for mayo in this chicken salad recipe. It’s what I use for my tuna salad sandwiches, and it’s just fantastic. Mayo freaks me out a little, so I’m glad that I can still enjoy these creamy sandwiches without it!

This chicken salad is one of those things that gets better then longer it sits too. I’m anticipating an even tastier sandwich then the one I had last night!

For snackeage – Baby Carrots & Almond Butter. You didn’t think I’d forget about my beloved AB just because there’s a new player in town, did you? ;)

This cold has me thinking it’s a Starbucks kind of a day…what do you think?

Toodles!

What’s your favorite sandwich? Is it hot or cold? Does it have to be on a certain kind of bread?

I am literally obsessed with my turkey, cheese & pumpkin butter sandwich on ciabatta bread. I LOVE IT! I also love a good Caprese sandwich – fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, basil and S&P on doughy focaccia – omg.

Good Heavens – could it BE anymore deliriously delightful outside?! I stole away for a quick, two mile walk in the sunshine at lunch today…in boots…with pointy(ish) toes. Rookie mistake. I ended up with a wicked blister on the top of my big toe! 8O It didn’t keep me from…

Last night, as the cold rain continued to fall, Ben and I got a craving for a hot cup o’ joe, so we headed to our nearest Starbucks for a steamy drink. We were walking out when this guy and a girl walk in. The guy is normal looking enough, but this girl is…
