{recipe} baked oatmeal

One of the easiest thing for me to make for breakfast is oatmeal. It’s even easier when it’s prepared ahead of time. I try to make a few dishes on Sundays, I call it my Sunday-prep-time, for us to eat throughout the week. Now that the temps are heating up around here, it is best […]

{recipe} pumpkin pie oatmeal bake

I made a simple pumpkin oatmeal bake on a Sunday afternoon, with the intentions of having it for breakfast for the next 5 days until Friday. Lets just say that by Wednesday, it was all gone. This happened last year, when I was 4.5 months pregnant. The first trimester was over and I was happy […]

Surprise BBQ and Wedding DIY

This weekend I enjoyed myself being surrounded by wedding DIY projects and doing arts and crafts. I really love doing creative and hands-on projects like scrapbooking and other crafts. I love that the you can see the finish product in a matter of days. So you get to enjoy your labor as soon as you are done. […]

Mom is home

After a week of being in the hospital,  my mom is back home with us. She was discharged yesterday after her tests came out negative. We are still watching her very closely. She will continue to see her doctors regularly and soon she will be wearing a heart monitor device so the doctors can keep […]

Overnight Steel Cut Oats

  I made breakfast last night in the form of overnight oats. Usually overnight oats are made with uncooked oats but I wanted some chewy oats this morning and used cooked steel cut oats instead. It worked. I put in 1/2 cup cooked steel cut oats and 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt. I used Fage […]

Fitness, Fashion and Food

This post is a little bit of everything.  A little bit of me,  a little bit of clothes and fashion and a little bit of  food. Today (a rainy day), I ran the Knott’s Berry Farm 10K Coaster Run with my friends. We had a fun run and that’s all we could ask for. I’m […]

30 Days of Reflection

Today is one month before I turn the “Big 30” on April 26th. I am so excited to be turning 30 and be where I am in my life. I don’t really feel like I am 30 years old, I feel like I am 21 + 9 years of wisdom or experience. My life is […]

No Man Hands

“I can see clearly now the rain is gone” Rain Begone   I had that song in my head on my way to the gym this morning. I think the weather does put a damper in my mood. When I wake up and it’s raining, I have less motivation to go to the gym, I […]

Energy Oat Bars

Since we had rain all weekend long, I welcomed the time spent indoors. Besides going to the gym in the morning, I didn’t leave the house or changed from my lounge wear for a whole day. Instead of watching movies all day long, which I love to do on lazy days, I baked and cooked […]

A Day in the Wild – Part I

Even for someone who enjoys working out, it was still hard to get back into my workout routine after being away from the gym for a week or so while I was sick. I eased into my workout by doing light cardio on alternating days. Once I was feeling well enough to take the intensity […]
