Last Thing Thursdays

12 Apr

It’s thursday, you know what that means and if you don’t then you need to read this blog more often!

The Last Thing I…

Ate. Overnight Oats. I have been making these for breakfast a few times a week lately because they are so freaking good. Not only do they taste good, they are pretty darn good for you too! Even better, you make them night before so they are ready to go first thing in the morning. I am all about convenience in the morning, anything for those few extra minutes in bed. I gave you a brief explanation a couple of weeks ago but I have tweaked it to perfection. So here is the official recipe:

Overnight Oats

1/3 cup old fashioned oats (don’t use instant or quick cooking – I did this the first time and it was a giant FAIL)

1 teaspoon chia seeds and/or ground flax ( I do a tsp of each)

1 Cup Milk ( I like to alternate between almond and coconut milk but you can use regular dairy milk too)

Put everything into a container that you can seal, give it a stir and refrigerate overnight. I like to top it with fresh fruit and that’s it, breakfast in a snap!

Coveted online. These amazing high waist sailor shorts on the Frock Candy Website, I NEED them. Seriously I do, they are definitely on my list of summer staples. But I should probably try a pair on just in case my ass looks huge…probably an intelligent plan.

Bought. A glossy box, I am so excited to try this out. If any of you have ever heard of Birch box, it is a Canadian version. We are a little behind the times here, it sometimes takes awhile to catch up in the world of awesome new products.  Basically, each month you receive a personalized package with 5 different high end beauty samples that fit your profile. The cost is $15 per month including tax and shipping. I just purchased one month to see what I think, but I think I am going to like it. I will keep you posted!

Pinned. This teal and coral color combo, I love it! Another one for the ol summer staples check list.

Got Excited for. Today! I am leaving for Whistler tonight for some family time, snowboarding and a little R & R. The hot tub at First Tracks Lodge is calling my name. If you need me, you know where to find me!



Monday Morsels

26 Mar

Busy, busy weekend for moi! I was rocking out at the Big Red Barn Burner BBQ Competition in Chilliwack, BC with Well Seasoned and my BBQ Family. And what a spectacular weekeend it was – full of sunshine and delicious food.

In other news, I have absolutely fallen in love with Mae Chevrette, her artwork rocks my world, below is one of my favorites “Salt Water”.  Visit her Etsy store for more amazing pieces.

Overnight Oats – my new favorite breakfast. Take 1/3 cup of oats and 2/3 cup of almond milk stir them together, cover and then store them overnight in the fridge. In the morning I like to add in fresh fruit and ground flax. This is not only a great breakfast to have on the run it also keeps me full all morning. Be sure you don’t use quick cooking/instant oats, the first time I tried this recipe I made that mistake and it was a complete FAIL.

Exactly 4 weeks from tomorrow I will be on a plane to Chicago, and I can not express how excited I am. Not only am I crossing off a bullet point in my 24th year to do list I am also crossing off a couple items on my bucket list. Ahem, visiting Wrigley field to see a Chicago Cubs game, it’s only the second oldest baseball stadium in North America…no big deal! Let the countdown begin.

Happy Monday!
