OverNight Oats!

Like every mom out there, I am always rushing in the morning… especially on weekdays! I am always the last one to eat breakfast, so I love this overnight oatmeal recipe! I can mix it up the night before, pop it in the fridge, and it’s ready to go in the morning! Oh, and I prefer the steel cut oats… but totally personal preference!


1/2 – cup steel cut oats or old fashioned oats
1/2 – cup vanilla or plain almond milk, soy, coconut or regular milk
1 1/4  – cups vanilla yogurt
1 – tablespoon ground flax seed or chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla

Makes 3 servings! Mix all ingredients together in a glass or jar. I prefer canning jars, but if you are using a glass then you should put saran wrap over the top to prevent moisture from getting in! Put in fridge overnight. In the morning, add your favorite toppings. I have listed my favorites below!

Topping Suggestions
sliced  strawberries
sliced  berries almonds or (any nut) chopped

Cupcake Kind of Day


In days gone by I would never have let my boys loose in my kitchen. That would have meant one more mess for me to clean up! However, as they get older I have come to realize that the mess is worth the fun they have, and the experience! After all, their future wives will hate me if they can’t cook!! So, today we embarked on a baking adventure. My middle son, William, considers himself somewhat of a cupcake connoisseur. He has never met a cupcake that he didn’t like. And in the spirit of “The Pink Daily” we decided to make these cupcakes PINK! I used the Magnolia’s Bakery vanilla cupcake recipe from The Food Network and they were delicious!

Color Color Color

TPD- Living Room

I am loving the colors here! Don’t be afraid to mix things up with a funky piece, like this pink zebra chair! Or use a not so neutral color, as your room’s neutral… Like this blue velvet sofa! I found all these fabulous pieces on One Kings Lane!
