Keep Calm and Carry On…

Life has been busy… REALLY busy since school started.

Stinky, my youngest has always been involved in a lot of activities, Bubba, not so much. This year, he has finally come out of his shell. It’s great!

It however adds more mileage to my odometer that I am now running with 2 kids instead of one. 😉

So this weekend when I had 5:30am wake up calls, packing lunches and driving here or there in the snow, it really didn’t feel like the weekend!

However knowing Bubba fulfilled a big dream of his to start him on his way of refereeing the big leagues…

… And Stinky looks so handsome when he is off to his hockey game!

It’s the little things that make it all worth it! So when I am sleep deprived, or wishing a cleaning fairy had showed up while I was out running kids this weekend…

… I just need to breathe deep, take a minute, and relax after they get on the bus… And have my coffee. :)

All the rest can wait…

Coffee and Oats…

Aquafit last night was cancelled due to weather :(  Which means I better get my butt in gear at home, and bring a DVD with me when we go to the wedding as I am feeling BLAH! After the cancelled aquafit disappointment and procrastinating about packing, I stayed up WAY too late!  I needed COFFEE this morning!!

Donut Shop k-cup

Protein Oats were my eats of choice this morning… I honestly didn’t know what to have.  I’m not that hungry, and I didn’t want to wake up my family with the hum of the vitamix…

All the mix-ins

In the bowl:

  • Quaker 100% Whole Grain Oats packet
  • 1 scoop Chocolate Protein powder
  • 1 t Chia Seeds
  • Boiled Water
I put it all in a bowl, and microwaved it for an additional 30 seconds so it had the wonderful souffle like texture.  Topped it with some Coco-Loco, and a tiny bit of almond butter and dove right in…. I guess I was hungrier than I thought?
I’m off to the hairdresser today… hopefully for just a trim, and colour.  I had a not so great experience there this spring when my Hairdresser was off work for a couple of months, and I used her replacement.  I have been putting off an appointment as long as I can, as leopard print dye job is not what I want to be sporting at my cousin’s wedding next week… will keep you updated 😉

Warm and Yummy!
