Hi from Houston!

I am safe and sound in sunny Houston! I’ve lived in Oklahoma for a YEAR now and this is my first time making it to Texas. Funny thing is, we’re off to Dallas NEXT weekend. 😉

Before I left yesterday I snapped a shot of my bowl-o-oats. I don’t get to eat oats very often because with a 7am start at work and a 35 minute commute…well, you can do the math and see that that’s a fairly early rise (even if you just slip into scrubs!). I typically brew my cup-o-Joe-to-go and scramble off with a piece of fruit and whatever baked good the weekend produced (hence my huge muffin/bread kick lately). But I do miss my oats!

In went:

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup fat-free milk
a spoonful of brown sugar
dried cranberries
pepitas
wheat berries
walnuts

Fiber, fruit, omega-3’s, and a breakfast to certain fill me through til lunch. Mmm mmm!

Yesterday we went outlet mall shopping and I just may have purchased the above… 😉 Oops! We went out for Mexican food after shoppin’ til we dropped. I got a tamale, a chicken taco, 2 chicken enchiladas, and rice and beans. We left with more than we ate! Huge portions!!!

Today we’re off to Gaveston and to get some sun! Ta-ta from Houston! 😀

Have a Happy Saturday!

    Your nuts and seeds in oatmeal look so good and crunchy! Sometimes I get so involved in the butters I forget to go back to the roots of them
    “sunny texas” I’d take anywhere not rainy today!

    I am a Coach girl all the way. Love the bag and clutch wallet. Fantastic. I am so jealous, but I will contain myself and not buy one online now. Have a good trip.

    I didn’t know you lived in Oklahoma! That’s interesting…a state I’ve never been to. I’ve never been to Texas either, but I’d definitely want to visit both places. Have fun! And your bowl of oats looks beautiful.

    Have a fun time in Houston! This is where my husband grew up and we’ll be moving there in a couple years when I finish my fellowship. The Med Center is amazing!
    And Galveston is so neat too… Don’t forget to have Salt Water Taffy at LaKing’s Confectionery! They are the best!
