Feelin’ Hot Hot Hot

13 Jun

As I was walking to class today after my workout this song popped into my head because I was feelin’ hot, hot, hot, and I could not cool off! Temperatures this high should only be allowed if you are by a body of water. I’m starting to think that the snow birds have the right idea with heading north the second the temperatures rise above 70 degrees. 

This week I have been putting the finishing touches on my gift box of goodies for my Foodie Pen Pal. I’ve had so much fun coming up with items to send to my recipient. I’ll have a recap post of this month’s FPP at the end of the month so I can share about what I receive. I mean, who doesn’t like getting treats in the mail?

The past couple of days I have been visiting playgrounds in the area to observe their condition for a class project. I feel like a total creeper going to these playgrounds. I try to complete my checklist and snap some pictures as quickly as possible. Today I did happen to come across this gem. 



What an awful toy! I immediately thought of reptar from Rugrats when I saw this. Personally, I don’t think it looks like a very inviting play toy. 

Back to the usual. Last night I finally decided to give overnight oats a try. I mixed my oats, greek yogurt, and almond milk together and set in the fridge to thicken over night. 



This morning I added some cinnamon to the mixture and stirred it all up. It was the perfect consistency so I didn’t add any extra milk. In my mind I thought this was going to be the best breakfast off all time, but I have to admit that I just wasn’t a fan. I would rather just eat my oatmeal hot. I did like the fact that I stayed full for a long time. All the added protein from the greek yogurt was satisfying. I may have a second go at the overnight oats in the future to see if I enjoy them any more with some extra toppings like berries, but until then I’m a hot oatmeal kind of girl.
