Early Oats.

Hey y'all. So last night I felt pretty much on top of the world. Coming off from an amazing trip with my youth group to WINTER BLITZ (woot!), I set my alarm for 6 a.m this morning, ready to conquer the world in the form of steel cut oats. There is just something about the idea of waking up bright and early to make a special little breakfast and have some Jesus time. Then my alarm went off at 6:42 a.m. So I pulled out my old Quaker friend, and had a mighty fine bowl of regular oats. I guess ill just have to wait  another day to experience the hype of steel cut oats. But for now, drool over this hearty bowl of yummyness!

Oats + Banana + Cranberries + Honey +
Cinnamon + Honey + Milk = Happy Halle.  

Oh! And for once in my life I didn't have to go in early for Calculus soooo I had a little extra time to make some yummy vinaigrette dressing for my salad today!
