For the last two weeks or so, I’ve felt like I’ve been in a bit of a breakfast rut.
Breakfast is one of my favourite meals of the day and I truly love breakfast foods, but recently I have been feeling a little uninspired in the morning meal department, and I’m not sure why.
Yesterday I just had melted cheese and salsa on a tortilla, folded into a quesadilla (A-Rod was all “Salsa for breakfast?!” Why, is that weird?), and many banana-peanut butter wraps have made their way into mah belly. I’ve just been feeling easy, and quick.
Today though, my love of breakfast returned in full force. Oatmeal is my fave winter breakfast so I’ve been avoiding it for most of the summer, but this morning I decided it was time to bust into some oaty goodness.
A little love from my breakfast BFF was all it took to rekindle my passion for breaky.
I topped my bowl of oats with Justin’s natural maple almond butter, a squirt of honey, sliced banana, and went to town.
This breakfast was exactly what I was feeling, and I am already excited for breakfast again tomorrow. I think I’m feeling eggs!!!
Fun College Times
Yesterday I was checking out the Elvis Impersonator video I posted on YouTube, and I remembered another video I posted wayyyy back in the day (well, four and a half years ago) when I was finishing college!
I took a three-year Print & Broadcast Journalism course, and I loved every second of it. I loved the program, loved the professors, and LOVED the people. I got really close to most of the people in my class, since we had all been together since day one. It was absolutely the time of my life.
At the end of our three years, our big assignment for one of our classes was to make a multimedia video on anything we wanted. I chose to make my video as a tribute to my Journalism friends, and all the great times we had. I ended up uploading it to YouTube, and last night when I stumbled upon it, I called Ando over to reminisce about our good school times.
It made me miss school so, so much! I miss being young and having no responsibilities besides school and my part-time job at Chapters.
Shmanyway, here is the video. This is also where Andrew and I met, so you will get to see our love blossom ;). I know it’s not as big of a deal for you guys because you won’t really know anyone besides me in the vid (I tried to include a picture of everyone in our class, although you may recognize a few from my blog!), but I still think it’s funny.
I am off to a morning BodyPump class at my gym, and then Andy-roo and I have quite the busy day ahead. Two birthday’s – his grandma’s 90th, and our friend Bri’s 27th. I’m sure the difference between the two will be interesting…
Enjoy your Saturday!
