What’s New?

1. Olive got a new hair do last week.


We scheduled the appointment before we knew it was going to snow and now she’s freezing her little tush off. Poor baby.

I’m glad she still loves me.


2. I had quinoa flakes for breakfast.


They were creamy, warm, and topped with sweet deliciousness (better n pb and pumpkin butter). Doesn’t get much better than this on a snowy morning.

3. I finally got out of the house today by going exploring down by the river.

It was raging!

These geese didn’t fly far enough South.


Isaac’s a lucky duck- he already got word that his school is closed tomorrow due to the snow. I’m watching the Grammy’s in my snuggie and keeping my fingers crossed in hopes of my office being closed as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I was so hoping for the same thing. Carl is off and I really dread trying to find a place to park in the city. Even behind the building will be tough. Guess I’ll be there though. Bummer.

    Wow, thats beautiful- where do you live??

  3. Olive is too cute!

    I am not working today, they haven’t plowed the streets here or the ones at my work yet. I am going stir crazy, too!

  4. Haha Grammys in a snuggie sounds AMAZZZING ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. The snow here is so beautiful, but I am so getting cabin fever – I was half hoping work would not be cancelled….I guess it is a good thing since I have a crazy exam on Friday, but still! Yesterday I had major cabin fever and had to take a long walk to Ellwoods for some kombucha….it was great but I am missing running already!

  6. Did you get a chance to see the river earlier last week when it was near flood stage?! I was down there for work and it was about to flood, and was ragingly intense – crazy!! More snow on the forecast tmrw, ugh, awesomeeeeeeeeeee :/

  7. Oooh, quinoa flakes would be new to me too! They look lovely–can’t imagine how they could not be good!

  8. olive is the CUTEST EVER.

  9. awww! olive looks so cute! I have never seen quinoa flakes – I assume in the hot cereal isle?

  10. Olive is absolutely adorable! I’ve never heard of quinoa flakes, but I love quinoa and those look delicious. I was curious-what is Better n PB. I’ve seen it on a lot of blogs, but no clue what it is.

    Stay warm!

  11. Olive! I’m cold just looking at her! But just remind her that sometimes every girl has got to sacrifice comfort for beauty!

  12. In general I’m not the hugest fan of grains, but I like quinoa occasionally. It’s got the most protein of any grain.

  13. I made my first overnight oats last night inspired by you- thought you should know- they’re green from the matcha

  14. Olive is so cute! I like her new ‘do.

    Your snow days are so much prettier than ours… no dirty snow!

  15. omgoodness, quinoa flakes?! WHY did I not know these exist? This post just made me one happy lady =)

    What do they taste like? I mean, I’m assuming they taste like quinoa, haha, but are they any sweeter than the regular kind?

    • Hey Gracie- Quinoa flakes are super creamy and smooth texture, but they have a similar taste to regular quinoa with no added sweetness. It reminds me of cream of wheat. If you’re like me and like things a little sweet, you’d probably want to add some sort of sweetness. I cook mine with 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk and 1/2 cup water. I also add a couple drops of liquid stevia and sometimes 1/2 of a sliced banana.

      Hope that helps!

  16. She’s so cute!

  17. Just placed my order with iHerb! Woot woot! Can’t wait to get it!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I wanted to try this Bee Yummy brand face stuff but they were all out! I got some maca powder, msm and spirulina (finally!) and a couple other things. ๐Ÿ™‚ I will definitely take pictures and post when it comes in. Hopefully sometime this week ๐Ÿ™‚


  18. Olive looks so cute with her new haircut!!!
