I'm actually not sure if that title makes any sense? Oh well, it's my blog.
Anyone who already follows me on Twitter or Instagram may already know this, but I have a confession to make. I have pumpkin fever.
|what's that? i've used this picture before? i know.|
Today consisted of pumpkin oatmeal for breakfast as well as a pumpkin smoothie as an afternoon snack. The day before started with some banana pumpkin overnight oats.
AND, because I’m a lover not a hater, I’m going to share how to make it:
Pumpkin-Banana-Dark Chocolate Overnight Oats:
The night before, combine the following:
-1/2 cup of rolled oats (or however much you want)
-1/2 cup of pumpkin
-1/2 or 1 full banana
-squirt of honey (however much sweetness you enjoy)
(optional: chunks of dark chocolate, flax, chia seeds, dash of vanilla extract)
Mix/smash all in bowl with enough milk of choice (I use almond milk) to cover the ingredients. Let soak overnight. Enjoy in the morning!
For a warm version, basically combine the same ingredients in the morning and heat that puppy up for about 2 minutes in the microwave. Voila! So good, I was literally licking the spoon in the parking lot before walking into work.
OHHH, you're sick of these weird self-portraits of myself? Lately, have you found yourself thinking:
That's unfortunate, because I'm not going to stop.
On to more exciting things: Labor Day Weekend!
Late tonight, three starry-eyed Colorado babes who I like to refer to as my wolf pack will arrive at BWI Airport. I do believe I’ve mentioned them before but just in case you wanted another visual… here’s an example of our semi-daily roll call, where we literally stop whatever we are doing and send out a pic of ourselves in that very moment to our on-going group text. Because that’s how long distance friendships operate, right?
|and of course, me.|
Hope your Labor Day weekend is absolutely fantastic, take some time for yourself, whatever that may look like!
