Wednesday. Ware. And. Fare...On. Thursday. Oops.

I've been so awful at keeping you all updated this week! It has been a very busy week but with exciting things happening! Still working on my business, getting fit (which at least 3 people this week have said to me, "Wow! You look like you are getting fit!" That is so nice!) and keeping clothes that I don't often wear to keep coming into my daily wardrobe. So here's this weeks update (albeit late!).


My little black dress! I wore this dress this weekend to my friend Kenna's birthday party. I love this dress and to be honest, I hardly ever have worn it! Why? Because I've never been a huge fan of my legs! However, as of late, I'm proud to show these babies off! After I took this picture and looked I realized, "Wow! I've come a long way and am getting healthier every day!" It feels great!

Dress: Merona - Target (this was from a year ago I believe but I just saw some there just like it!)
Shoes - Buffalo Exchange - American Eagle (only $15!)
Earrings - A pair I snagged in Australia

One of my FAVORITE features on dresses and skirts are POCKETS! I don't know why but I love me some pockets! Another reason I absolutely adore this dress!

I saw these shoes at Buffalo Exchange when I was recently looking for new skirts/dresses to fit me since my others are getting way too big! They were too cute to pass up and I have many clothes with which they would match. What girl doesn't love a new pair of summer strappy sandals?!

All ingredients together!

Overnight OATS!

I found an awesome new blog this weekend and I'm so excited about it! I've added it onto the 'Blogs I Love' section and you should check it out! It's called Eating Bird Food. I've been checking out her recipes and they are great! Another great thing is that it appears she's on a new workout and protein eating habits so if you are working on improving you, this would be a great blog to follow!

Going into the fridge!

Another reason that this interested me is that I am NOT a morning person. So the quickest thing that I can make for breakfast is usually what I have. You just put your oats and other ingredients in the fridge before you go to snooze and then wake up, pull them out for 15 mins when you are getting ready and then eat away!

Finished Product!

1/2 C Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 C Vanilla Almond Milk Unsweetened
Cinnamon (add as much or as little as you like)
Lime Zest (the site recommended lemon but I only had limes at home. It added a wonderful zing!)
Fresh sliced banana on top

I was supposed to have some bananas with this today on top for a little extra fruit but I didn't have any at home! I had left my wallet at a coffee shop yesterday so I couldn't go and purchase any in the morning! Boo! Tomorrow's oats will have some fruit on top!

What breakfast meals do you have in the morning that are both quick and nutritious?
