(not featured in this photo: the biggest bowl of oatmeal you've ever seen)
Wondering: Is any self-respecting adult as excited for Despicable Me 2 as I am?
Making: endless amounts of oatmeal. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day (ask anyone, they'll tell you). And unlike most people I know who need at least an hour in the morning before they're ready for breakfast, I'm hungry the minute I wake up. I go through lots of breakfast phases. Sometimes it's cereal (this is my personal favorite). Sometimes it's yogurt (if you haven't tried this kind, you need to). My latest breakfast craze has been oatmeal. Every morning! Right now, I have two favorite concoctions: 1) oatmeal + bananas + peanut butter + cinnamon, and 2) oatmeal + walnuts + cranberries + blueberries. Really, you can't go wrong.
Listening: to Holley Maher. Her music is perfect for a lazy, whimsical kind of day (trust me). You can check out her blog here, and listen to my favorite of her songs, 'Hiding Place' right here.
Taking: my time. There is something so deliciously lazy about the summertime. Know what I mean? My responsibilities are the same as they were a week ago, but somehow everything just seems to slow down once June rolls around. I'm not rushing around or racing out the door or juggling eight million things at once (not yet, anyways!). Yesterday I had a few hours left before work and instead of trying to cram in a bunch of chores and errands before I left, I spent two glorious hours on the couch, watching Juno. I can't remember the last time I watched a movie in the middle of the afternoon, so it felt like a pretty big deal. Hehe.
