Like Daughter, Like Mother

November 26, 2010

LOOK at what Rudi got the Bears into last night!! We are very disappointed in him. A teenager is supposed to set the example!


Thankfully the Bears have had enough exposure to their father’s beers to know to stay away until they are of age. I think the fumes must have got to them though. They were quite loopy this AM.

I sipped on coffee while I waited for the rest to rise. My parents slept for 10 hours; Matt and I slept for 9! Guess our stomachs demanded more rest.


Mom wanted “KERF Oatmeal.” I delivered!! I made a pot for 3 (including Matt) of oat bran oat mix with banana – the usual – and topped them with pumpkin muffin crumble, pumpkin butter and drippy TJ’s sunflower butter (extra on mom’s!)





[My bowls are from a boutique in Charlotte; Placemat’s from Southern Season in Chapel Hill]


We’ve got a bit of a dreary day. But Larbs and Matt are on the way down from Maryland to spend it with us!

We’re taking M+D out on a tour of Cville via automobile this morning, then coming back for a leftovers lunch, then hopefully fitting in our annual Thanksgiving Weekend Hike this afternoon. Out to dinner tonight! Fun times.

I’m not sure if I can fit any oatmeal in my belly this morning! Such a great tradition to go on a Thanksgiving weekend hike – great to get some movement in on a weekend focused on food!!

Sounds like a great day planned! I’m envious of the amount of sleep you had – I went to a Thanksgiving dinner with co-workers last night and didn’t get home till midnight, then was up for a 5am personal training session… bahh lots of coffee to come this morning!! Have a great day Kath! :)


3 Meg November 26, 2010 at 9:38 am

Tisk tisk, Rudi!! Gosh, what a sleeze! 😉

Enjoy your tour and hike! 😀 Looking forward to the recap! Stay warm!


4 Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine November 26, 2010 at 9:39 am

I slept like a rock last night too- all that food takes a lot of energy to digest 😉 Have fun with Larbs and Matt!


5 Lauren at KeepItSweet November 26, 2010 at 9:41 am

6 Samantha @ Bikini Birthday November 26, 2010 at 9:42 am

Oh Rudi, being hungover is not the best way to start black friday!



7 Jil @ Big City, Lil Kitchen November 26, 2010 at 9:44 am

8 Estela @ Weekly Bite November 26, 2010 at 9:44 am

The bear pics are too cute!!

Love the orange bowls + blue dot placemats! So cute!


9 Megan @ The Oatmeal Diaries November 26, 2010 at 9:48 am

What boutique are the bowls from? I live in Charlotte and would love to find them! I’m a sucker for anything with coral on it. Your breakfasts sound (and look!) amazing by the way :)


10 Kath November 26, 2010 at 10:32 am

A shop in the shopping center with Nolan Kitchen and Yoforia. I forget the name!


11 Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey November 26, 2010 at 12:00 pm

Can’t think of the name either, but it’s at the intersection of Selwyn and Colony!


12 Megan @ The Oatmeal Diaries November 28, 2010 at 10:58 am

Ok, thank you guys! :)


13 Balanced Healthy Life November 26, 2010 at 10:00 am

The Husband and I slept in late this morning and slept hard last night! : ) Too much food! I love the couch in that first photo!


14 Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) November 26, 2010 at 10:05 am

I didn’t wake up until 8 this morning — late for me! — and am still lazing around. We have a THIRD Thanksgiving meal today, though, so I need to get going (and find a loose-fitting dress haha).


15 Christine November 26, 2010 at 10:22 am

How could you request anything BUT KERF oatmeal?!

The matching breakfasts are too cute!


16 Grocery Goddess Jen November 26, 2010 at 10:32 am

The weather here is icky, too. I don’t see me doing much outdoors today. Have fun with Larbs and Matt!


17 Joanna November 26, 2010 at 10:39 am

Love the pic of the coffee with the leaf. Great one!

I also had oatmeal this morning. It is a good start to the day after Thanksgiving.


18 Gillian Young November 26, 2010 at 10:39 am

The new placemats look gorgeous! I’m envying your mom’s oats right now…yum! Do you deliver to Canada?


19 Natalia - a side of simple November 26, 2010 at 10:50 am

KERF oatmeal sounds like a great recovery remedy for any hangover, turkey or beer. Hope the bears got some, too 😉
Loving the new placemats!


20 missy November 26, 2010 at 10:52 am

Oh, my! Rudi is not setting a good example. 😉

Have a great day with your family.


21 Christine (The Raw Project) November 26, 2010 at 11:11 am

The oatmeal looks great and sounds like a wonderful day planned. Enjoy!


22 Christin@purplebirdblog November 26, 2010 at 11:29 am

I also slept 10 hours last night… mega digestion going on! 😀


23 Bee Goes Bananas November 26, 2010 at 11:35 am

I love love love your bowls and place mat! You’ve inspired me to start my own ecclectic bowl and utensil collection.

So cute!

I also love that you have bears! 😀


24 Melissa @ I Never Imagined November 26, 2010 at 11:37 am

HAHAHA!! I love the naughty reindeer photo!! Poor little bears!!! I hope somebody had a stern talk with Rudi after that!


25 alicia November 26, 2010 at 11:45 am

HAHA the one under the couch cushion!!!!! so funny.


26 Mary @ Bites and Bliss November 26, 2010 at 11:49 am

Bears will be bears. 😉


27 faith @ gracefulfitness November 26, 2010 at 11:49 am

I was looking at this post with my 8 year old niece and when we scrolled to the first oats picture she proclaimed “ohhhhh!” “WHAT is it? Is it caramel?”. Her comment “I like your bowls of yumminess!”.


28 Talia November 26, 2010 at 11:56 am

Today is my birthday! I just realized yours is on the 26th of October and mine on the 26th of November! A month apart haha. (I must be slow if it took me slow long to realize haha)


29 Kath November 26, 2010 at 12:29 pm

Happy B-day!!


30 Alaina November 26, 2010 at 12:04 pm

Haha, I love those bears! And those bowls. I have one that color except the orange is the background with white flowers.

Hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving!!


31 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin November 26, 2010 at 12:05 pm

There’s nothing better than an extra long sleep after a filling meal! 😀


32 Heather (Heather's Dish) November 26, 2010 at 12:27 pm

those bowls are GORGEOUS…probably the best ones i’ve seen yet!


33 Food & Other Things November 26, 2010 at 1:25 pm

The first picture made me laugh…sounds like a fun day with your family!


34 Camille November 26, 2010 at 1:43 pm

I love your bowls! So cute!


35 Krista (kristastes) November 26, 2010 at 1:50 pm

Your bear scene cracked me UP! :) I hear you on the 10 hours of sleep girlfriend!


36 Anita November 26, 2010 at 2:06 pm

Hopefully Rudi learned to stay away from alcohol. Your bear pics are always uplifting.


37 Paige @Running Around Normal November 26, 2010 at 2:39 pm

Those bowls are SO Cute!
Have fun today being tour guides:)


38 RaZbErri November 26, 2010 at 2:55 pm

39 Kath November 26, 2010 at 4:35 pm

So nice of you to stop by Razberri!


40 Joy November 26, 2010 at 3:27 pm

I would blame the malcontent reindeer for all the wild antics. He looks like nothing but trouble to me 😉


41 Simply Life November 26, 2010 at 4:11 pm

Looks like a great morning – love the bowls and placemats! :)


42 stacey-healthylife November 26, 2010 at 4:27 pm

I love the bears, that’s funny.


43 Marci November 26, 2010 at 4:43 pm

My sister lives in Chapel Hill and I think I’ll be getting placemats from that store for Hannukah or my birthday! So bright and pretty.


44 Amy at TheSceneFromMe November 26, 2010 at 4:52 pm

Jealous of your sleep time last night!

I love the bowls with the coral design on them. You have a unique blend of dishes!


45 Missy November 26, 2010 at 6:31 pm

So excited for you and Matt to open up your store!!! Can’t wait to visit!!!


46 Hannah November 26, 2010 at 10:14 pm

Oh my gosh… sometimes when I see these bear posts and your stories, I can’t help getting excited about when you have real kids. Is that strange?! 😛


47 chelsey @ clean eating chelsey November 27, 2010 at 9:43 pm

The bears crack. me. up.


48 Meg November 29, 2010 at 4:56 pm

I love that you got your placemats from Southern Seasons. I was just there on Wednesday. I LOVE it! I must have wandered around there for at least 2 hours. It is a good thing I live in Chicago, that place could make me broke very quickly.
