It’s a good morning indeed.

Even this bee who has been staring me down after I put my hand on his nest agrees!

Breakfast was already made. Wish my bed had been already made.

Overnight oats made with Coach’s oats, milk, yogurt, cinnamon, chia seeds, banana, blueberries, raspberries and some crumbled savannah bar that Matt brought home for me last night!

Listening to Brad Paisley over breakfast this morning. My favorite artist of all time!! Country music really does warm the soul.

So does finishing a to-do list the day before!

Ooo, I haven’t had overnight oats in a hot minute! Love the coconut tea too. I really only like flavored black teas – like Trader Joe’s Vanilla & Cinnamon – so this ones sounds uber yummy. :) Happy hump day!

I wish my bed were made too! I’m washing the sheets so it will be nice to climb into a fresh clean bed tonight. Love Brad Paisley and love the pictures of your breakfast. How nice of Matt to bring you a Savannah bar. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Do you make your bed every day? I can’t convince myself to make the bed unless I change the sheets. :)

Reply

17 KathEats August 31, 2011 at 7:48 am

Always. As soon as I get up. Except for Sundays “in case I need to get back in”

Reply

18 Jennifer August 31, 2011 at 9:57 am

Ha! I do the same. Sundays are a free day too mostly because my husband gets back in! :)

19 Jillian August 31, 2011 at 12:03 pm

Maybe its just because I don’t move around in my sleep at all most of the time, but I’ve always wondered what “making the bed” means to others or why it would be something to not feel like doing- I just pull the sheets up over the pillows and then the duvet, and toss whatever throw pillows I’m using back on- it takes me like 15 seconds. Do y’all have really elaborate bedding or something?! ;)

Reply

20 KathEats August 31, 2011 at 1:38 pm

Agreed. It takes me 10 seconds!

23 Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey August 31, 2011 at 7:53 am

I don’t think I have ever heard a Brad Paisley song.
What can I say? Country music is NOT my jam. :)

However, I adore “Annie Banks”. ;)

Your overnight oats are looking particularly scrumptious today… must be that Savannah bar!

I adore that last photo.

I’ve never been too huge into country music but lately I’ve been listening to a lot. Have you ever heard of Zac Brown Band? My sister just got me into them and they’re good. And my friend (he lives in Charlotte!) just got me into a song by “Southern Culture on the Skids” (called “Whole Lotta Things”) that I really liked. They’re hail from Chapel Hill! I also love the Crazy Heart soundtrack. SO many good songs on there.

Enjoy your Wednesday as well!

I know this is off topic. I was wondering what is the best way to save a recipe post from a website in a folder that you could go back to? You are the most internet savvy, foodie, blogger, etc, that I know to ask. I tried to save as a webpage in a folder but I think some of them diassapeared?
Can’t wait to see pics of the house!! Congrats

My favorite country artist is Keith Urban, although country music is not usually my first pick. My favorite artist is Paul McCartney & I usually go for classic rock or other music of the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s. :)

I have never heard of Brad Paisley… what kind of music artist is he??? I will have to check him out when I get home from work!

I love having the bed made when I leave for work… I like knowing that I can come home to a clean house with no dishes to wash, or a bed to make. It’s like a weight off my mind and helps to to better focus on my day at work.

I forget sometimes how much a adore raspberries in oats! Last years I was really into raspberry cocoa overnight oats. Holy deliciousness :-D

I’ve never really given true country music a chance… but I’m a big fan of Americana music, which I guess is kind of a “light” version of country? I’ll have to give Brad Paisley a listen!

We love Brad Paisley also. We try to see him every time he comes to the Houston Rodeo. We used his song “She’s everything” (from the Time Well Wasted album) in our wedding slide show. :)
