Good Moods


gf 092

Since we’ve added a new fur baby to our family, Hazel, we have completely changed our morning routine. Where before Parrish and I would wake up separately, we now get up together at 7am. You would think that the earlier wake up call would leave me grumpy, but it’s actually improved my mood. We get to take the pups on a mile walk every morning and it’s hard not to smile when Hazel and Max are around. Dogs are just plain funny.

But this morning in particular was a great morning! Nine hours of blissful sleep and the aforementioned puppy time helped, but the real star of the morning was this bowl of gluten free oats.

Bananas are back!

In the mix: 1/3 cup skim milk, 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup Bob’s Red Mill gluten free rolled oats, 1/2 tbsp. chia powder, 1/2 banana whipped into submission; topped with a smudge of dark chocolate peanut butter and half of a Bora Bora bar

Whipping bananas in your oats makes a HUGE difference in the texture! Soft pillowy mounds of oats, perfection!


Last night Parrish and I watched The Social Network. Yeah we’re a little behind. We definitely liked it, but I can’t see what all the hub bub is about. It was a great movie, but award winning? I dunno.


Check back tonight for the final resolutions! Did you miss the first five? Catch up here.

You’ll be happy to know that I have kept up the flossing, but I can already tell it’s going to get boring fast!! Anyone have tips for sticking to it?
