What better way to start the day than with a little peanut butter?
Using two packets of instant oatmeal from the hotel breakfast buffet, I prepared a bowl of hot oats topped with a scoop of peanut butter.
If only I had a couple of chocolate chips on hand, this breakfast would’ve tasted like a healthier version of peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough. I love the consistency and flavor a big scoop of peanut butter adds to an otherwise bland bowl of oatmeal.
Along with my peanut butter oats, I also enjoyed the top of a blueberry muffin (the tops are the best) and a hard boiled egg minus the nasty, dry yolk.
One of the things I’ve been loving from the hotel breakfast buffet is a new flavor of tea.
I find plain green tea very bland, but the hotel has packets of Bigelow pomegranate green tea that are fantastic! The flavor reminds me a bit of Starbucks’ passion tea.
Speaking of pomegranates, in case you’re a newer blog reader, I thought you might enjoy some flashback links to my first blog-related trip to California to tour POM Wonderful’s orchards and factory. It was a blast and such a neat experience.

And now for some Pinterest talk!
Pinning on Pinterest
When Ryan and I moved out of our
shanty apartment in Orlando, we promised each other that we would try to find a place we love to rent in Ocala and would do our best to decorate it and make it truly feel like a home rather than a temporary place to live.
I’ve been browsing through magazines and catalogs looking for decorating inspiration ever since.
Last weekend, I discovered Pinterest, an amazing website that allows you to “pin” pictures from various websites to your own “boards” and I felt like I hit the decorating inspiration jackpot!
Rather than email yourself link after link to pictures of furniture or design photos, you can store all of these pictures in one place on Pinterest by “pinning” them.
Warning: Pinterest is highly addicting.
Aside from home décor inspiration, you can find amazing pictures of anything from organization and craft ideas to fitness quotes, inspirational sayings, adorable animal photos and wedding ideas! You may then sort these photos into different “boards” so they’re categorized and share them with others on Pinterest that follow you. You can also scan boards of people you follow which I did for a million hours on Friday night.
You may find me on Pinterest here.
After eating delicious frozen custard last Friday night, Ryan and I were super cool and spent the evening curled up on the couch at his mom’s house, pinning away!
I pinned picture after picture of decorating ideas for our new house.
Now I just need a bazillion dollars to go out and buy all new furniture and I’ll be set!
Question of the Morning
- What room in a house do you think would be the most fun to decorate?
I am really looking forward transforming our future living room into a comfortable, beautiful and warm place in our new home.
