A Few Confessions

So, I have a confession. I am addicted to Oatmeal.


At least it is not these Oatmeal Cookies that my Mom made today, right?!


Well, I am kind of addicted to these too…. I photographed one, but I ended up eating SIXTEEN cookies!


Haha, well, truly I only had 3.5, but I wanted to make it sound worse than it was, first 😉

Did it work? Did you fall for it?


My next confession, is that I always feel like someone is watching me through that little camera hole on my MacBook

Truly, I get most concerned when I am changing (makes sense, right??) so I covered it up with a post it 😉

I am guessing I am not the only one who is creeped out by this spooky little eye (????)


And my last confession today, is that we put Noah in a shower cap today.

Don’t get mad! We only kept it on for the sake of the photograph. Please tell me you’re getting a laugh out of this like we did? It was sooo funny, and boy was he glad to have the camera out of his face, and the shower cap off his head. Good thing I got cuddles later, he still loves me 😉


Look at this? Am I ridiculous? I honestly don’t feel like eating anything else lately!


I packed pre-made oatmeal with toppings/milk to heat it up on the side


I added banana, flaxseed, and peanut butter to top it. I am taking this to my babysitting job tonight.


Also, I made some Overnight Oats (same recipe as todays) for the morning. I have to wake up at 5am, and leave by 7am for San Diego, so I need something quick and filling to eat before I leave. Jeeze, I wonder if I should take some more Soakin’ Oats for the road? (AHH! Eat something else, Paige!!)

P.S. I am sorry if you thought I was going to confess something cool and crazy. Nope! It’s just my Oats addiction!

Have you ever gone through an Oatmeal OBSESSION, where it was pretty much all you wanted to eat? It’s soooo goood!!! I could literally eat it for every meal right now.

  1. Noah is so cute in that shower cap! We put my moms basset hound in a shower cap AND a doggie dress someone gave us once! It was TOO funny. Poor girl was afraid to move! We took it off as soon as I got a picture too though. 🙂

    what is the recipe for the oatmeal cookies that you made? 🙂

  3. I think your doggie needs a bath brush or soap on a rope to complete his ensemble. 🙂

  4. Usually oatmeal is the last thing I want 😉 HAHA, but I get a taste for it occasionally. I’m still needing to try those over night oats especially in the peanut butter jar. Your doggie is cute! If i had one I’d dress it up all the time too! Have fun in San Diego!

    • Thanks girl! Try adding more to your Oats! Try different things! Make them with vanilla almond milk instead of water, cook in chunks of banana… put yummy toppings on top (I swear by just a few white chocolate chips)!!!

    Those oatmeal cookies look amazing! I’ve also tried adding white chocolate chips in my oatmeal and it tastes sooo good 🙂

  6. I am totally addicted oats too! Something about how creamy they are and how you can add ANYTHING on top and it will taste amazing lol

    • Yes! I agree! I LOVE my Oats to be creamy, which involves almond milk, banana, and chia seeds (which I forget to put in my cooked Oats- they add the best texture!)

      • I just love the blog world. Only here can we talk about how amazing a steaming bowl of oatmeal with chia seeds and almond milk topped with sweet bananas, creamy oatmeal and crunchy walnuts without sounding crazy. 🙂 Because we aren’t! Oats (and other eats) are just THAT GOOD lol.

      • Haha, AGREED! Except I seem to talk about this stuff with everyone… do they think I am nuts? 😉

    girl, you are totally not the only one who thinks you’re being watched through your camera. haha i watched this episode of criminal minds once where the killer guy was a tech support person so whenever he got access to someones computer he would just watch through their computer and then kill them when they “sinned” (crazy stuff like getting into an argument with a family member) so needless to say, my camera has been covered at all times since then.

    longest comment ever? possibly.
    did i probably freak you out even more? totally, sorry for that. hahaha

    I’m glad you will be posting the recipe for those cookies, they look out-of-this-world-good. I had to laugh about the post-it over the camera hole because I do the exact same thing! My friends and family do not get it, they think I’m just being paranoid but you NEVER know. Better safe than sorry, right?
