And so it begins.
…the season of pumpkin (i.e. september and beyond). I can not tell you how happy I am it’s September. Texas is so hot. SOOO HOT. I NEED the cooler weather that comes along with pumpkin season.
So I’m going through some changes. For instance…
I’ve somehow become the type of person who listens to NPR. And enjoys it. Like I don’t listen to music in the car anymore unless some ukulele performer is being interviewed on NPR and plays a song. But after Macklemore played that Downtown song on the VMA’s I’ve been listening to it non-stop on YouTube. It’s ridiculous. I love it. But an NPR-listener, who am I?
I’m switching up my blogging schedule again. Which just proves once again that I am the world’s most indecisive person.
Posting 5 days a week isn’t working for me. I love feeling like I’m interacting with you guys more often, but I feel like the quality of the blog posts were suffering…and that’s not what I want.
I’m going back to posting 3 times/week, but the posts won’t necessarily be on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. New posts may be on those days, but they could also be on Monday, Tuesday and Saturday. I’m trying to figure out what blogging schedule works best for me and my eating disorder job. I hope you continue to hang around here while I figure my life out a bit.
If you’re thinking, are your fingers really that red in real life?
Yes. Yes they are. I have the very weirdest skin.
So how are you? I’m good. I’m just coming from eating a pizza smooshed together with a calzone. WHAT?! I mean, it’s a genius idea. Gonna be recreating that pizzahhh soon. May even get a small business loan.
Oh you guys. Overnight oats. They never get old. Never ever. It’s pudding for breakfast. What’s not to love? And these have granola mixed in!
Now. The trick is, you don’t let the tasty Nature’s Path Pumpkin Flax Granola that I used in this recipe sit overnight in the mix. You wait until the morning to stir in the granola so it stays crunchy. Crunchy + creamy just works and makes breakfast all the more a celebration. YOU WIN.
