GLEE is tonight! HALLELUJAH!

I was squealing inside yesterday when I realized Glee was only less than 24 hours away. Gleeks have waited forever for this night to come and it's finally here. I even made myself anxious at one point, because I bottled up so much excitement that I was afraid of getting the post-blues after the episode is over. Much like post-wedding blues.

For the past two day's I have been eating Vegan Over-Night Oats [VONO] and it. is. Da Bomb!!!

I was never a fan of over night oats. I have tried it over the past twice and it grossed me out for some reason? So I would end up microwaving it and I just declared that I would always prefer my breakfast cereal hot.

But [enter] chia seeds and it somehow made my ONO much more refreshing and dessert like. Oh what difference chia seeds make!

With TJ Crunchy Almond Butter w/ Flax and SF Smuckers Blackberry Jam

-1/3 old fashioned oats
-1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
- one packet of stevia
-1/3 smashed banana
-1 tbsn chia seeds

stir AND store!

For the first time in a while, I got to eat my breakfast at home. The majority of the time, I eat my breakfast in my car on the way to school. Which takes me approx ~15 minutes

For the first time I ate with this cute little condiment spoon that I found at Crate and Barrell. I've been wanting one ever since I've seen Kath eat her breakfasts with it. ohhhh, I am a consumer-formist at worst.
But it made the process of eating breakfast much more enjoyable and slow ~25 to 30 minutes, the way it should be.

With hot smores coffeeeeee! yum

GLEE is on RIGHT NOW! but I am actually going to stop at WF's so I can buy Living Harvest's Hemp-Tempt Ice Cream, ha. I wait for SOOO LONG to watch Glee and when it finally airs I put it on halt to buy ice cream.

Speaking of ice cream......

Did you enter my CUISINART GIVEAWAY? there is plenty of time and chances to win!

What do you like to top on your oatmeal?

- I love any nut butter and pumpkin. If I could, I would top my oats with tons of chocolate, but excess sugar in the morning is bad for a girl like me. It involves a horrible sugar crash. I missed class one time because I had a carrot cake and crashed on the couch for FOUR HOURS! and I was still lethargic after. Perhaps that is a good thing? because that means I tend to stay away from it when I can.

haha Look at you!!! I love hot oats and actually didn't fall in love with overnight oats the first time i tried it, but I haven't ever done it with chia!!! MY goodness your bowl of oats looks SO inviting and tasty. I'm also a sucker for cute little spoons, but my kitchen drawer is SOOOO full of spoons of all shapes and sizes I have no room for more cute spoons like your Crate and Barrel ones!! I love going to Sanrio (you know...the Japanese kids store that sells hello kitty stuff) and buying their kiddie spoons. hahahhaha Man, I hope you don't think i'm a loser!

Those little spoons are so so cute! Glad you got one- love the color. I am a huge overnight oats fan. On top I like some fruit and walnuts and occasionally some dried coconut!
