the catcher in the rye was the last book i read over the summer (earlier in the summer i read 1984 and jane eyre). while some students loath about reading serious books from the literary canon i actually really enjoy it... kind of. i don't like it when i have to finish reading a specific amount of chapters by a specific day and have to be prepared for a quiz on it. *cringes* what i do like is going through a book at my own pace, and figuring out all its layers of meaning on my own.
Hello All! I hope your week is off to a great start. Shawndiz was kind enough to invite me to write a guest post for her blog and today I'm sharing a recipe for overnight oats. I first discovered overnight oats about a year ago and they have quickly become one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast because they are delicious and very easy to make. I also like that it's easy to experiment with different ingredients and proportions. Although the possibilities are endless, today I'm sharing one of my favorite overnight oats combinations:
Berry, Almond and Chocolate Overnight Oats
3/4 cup of dried oats
1/2-3/4 cup of mixed berries (I used blueberries, blackberries and raspberries)
A handful of sliced almonds
A handful of chocolate chips
1/2 cup to 3/4 cups of almond milk
1 Tbsp of agave syrup (optional)
To prepare this overnight oats recipe, simply pour all the dry ingredients into a half-pint mason jar, top off the jar with almond milk and agave syrup, and then store the mixture in the fridge overnight. Then simply grab the mason jar from the fridge on your way out the door in the morning. I really wasn't kidding when I said this is an easy breakfast to prepare! You can enjoy overnight oats warm or at room temperature, but I like to eat this particular recipe when it's cold. You don't want the berries to get too pruny by popping them in the microwave.
What are your favorite breakfast recipes?
Again, I'm very thankful that Shawndiz was kind enough to invite me to share this post with you and I hope that you enjoy this recipe!

my summer vacation is coming to an end, (i move this week!) and with that my mom decided to squeeze in one last mini vacation. she wouldn't tell me where we were going until that morning, and even then she didn't really know for sure herself. we simply decided to drive north along the coast and stop wherever we wanted. it was SO nice not having a strict itinerary; it really made it feel like a vacation. so thursday morning i packed my overnight bag and we decided to head for santa barbara. we stopped in downtown santa barbara for lunch, and i swear i ate some of the best pizza EVER. we ate at a restaurant called persona wood fired pizza; i would HIGHLY recommend it if you ever find yourself in santa barbara. after, we did some shopping then headed further north to solvang.
If you know anything about me, you know that I am all about cold weather! While winter is my favorite season, Fall is what gets me hyped up for the snowy months!! The latter half of the year guarantees the best holidays, foods, and fashion (in my honest opinion, at least). Here are just a few of the things that I'm most excited about this coming fall.
it's labor day weekend! although this makes no difference to me whatsoever (i'm still on summer vacation!) it marks an important shift. although i'm sure it will continue feeling like summer until early november here in southern california, in many other places labor day marks the end of summer; so enjoy your long weekend and these last sweet days of summer. here are some links to things i've been loving from around the web...
