ashamed of myself

I am so ashamed of myself! How did I not know that January was National Oatmeal month?

I don't know about you, but oatmeal is a major staple in my diet and eating it on the daily makes me so happy, healthy, and helps me stay full and energized far longer than any other breakfast food.  Sometimes I even eat it for dessert! 

I know it's like National Pancake Day today or something, but pancakes? Who even cares about those? Whatever. They can be delicious, but when I make them, my recipe includes oatmeal!

I like to flavor my oatmeal with a little bit of maple syrup (homemade) and I like to eat it on a bit of wheat toast! Yum!  You can try it with anything though, blueberries, apples, strawberries, honey, peanut butter, chocolate chips, whatever you want guys, for real, endless flavor opportunities.

You can read about some of the health benefits of oatmeal here.

I'm going to enjoy a bowl right now and watch the drama play out on the bachelor.  Oh, the drama!

Are you watching the bachelor?  Do you think Tierra is seriously that crazy or is it all in the editing?

Tiff you always crack me up! I also enjoy a nice bowl of oatmeal. I especially loved it when I was pregnant! But on toast?? Sounds strange to me, but I'll give it a try. Also the Bachelor. Oh how I love/hate the bachelor. Last night I couldn't sleep because I was having stressful dreams because of it. And I've noticed that Tierra does and says a lot of the same things that hated Courtney from Ben's season did. I honestly think it's made up. What a joke, but why is it my most favorite show? Ugh

Whoops! That last comment was from me (Court) not from "Brother of the law" which is a strange name my husband came up with for a blog. Guess I was signed in with his account!
