{Breakfast for a Week}


Dry Ingredients:
-3 cups of dry oats

-1/2 cup of oat flour
-6 tsp of sweetener {I used brown sugar}
-3 tsp of cinnamon

Wet Ingredients:
-1/2 a cup of unsweetened applesauce
-3 cups of liquid {I used 1 cup of milk and two cups of water}
-1 tsp of vanilla

Pre heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl mix wet ingredients. Combine wet with dry ingredients. In the bottom of 6-8 mason jars fill the bottom of each jar with fruit of your choice and nuts. Fill the remaining with oatmeal mixture.

{Lovely Links!}

Happy Monday!! It's been a very long weekend for me I completed my CPR and First Aid, I got 95%! Whoop Whoop! That took most of my weekend up the course was 2 days and each day was 8 hours, it pretty much felt like work...And now today I'm back in the office for a 12 hour day!

I wanted to share a few amazing websites/blogs that I recently came across. I'm sure many of you may have already heard of these great websites, but I'm always a little late on things like that.

                        


                                                      Apartment Therapy Family


Apartment Therapy Family features nurseries and children's rooms from around the world! It's a great site for decorating ideas, and inspiration!

                                                               Apartment Therapy


Apartment Therapy is just like Apartment Therapy Family but instead of nurseries, and children's rooms, it's the whole home! Some of these spaces are so beautiful! I could spend hours on this website!

                                                                     Heavy Petal


I also have a love for gardening, Trevor and I are planning on doing some major landscaping-planting-pruning-and gardening this summer, and Heavy Petal is just the place to start. This Canadian based blogger, has tons of tips for planting and gardening!

{Hello!!}

I haven't blogged in so long I still have to wish all my lovely followers Happy Christmas, and Merry New Year! I hope everyone had as great of a holiday season as I did, I can't wait for what 2012 has to offer!

If you don't know already one of my most favorite blogs of all time is Gussy Sews! I actually had a small interview on her blog too after I won a giveaway for a shop makeover. Maggie, or Gussy as I usually call her recently posted a list of her favorite books which I found quite intriguing. So of course I had to go out and purchase two of the books from her list!



The first I'm going to read is The Handmade Marketplace by Kari Chapin.


So far it's been a really great read, and I just couldn't help myself, I had to skip ahead to the chapter on blogging! I look forward to sharing a few lines from the book with you, that I find especially helpful :)
