Good morning from my oven! I woke up early with the intention of going to the gym because it’s raining here this morning, BUT, I decided to knock out this Coffee Almond Baked Oatmeal recipe for this weekend’s Holly Spree at my high school.

This weekend it felt like I worked all weekend! Besides working at my day job on Saturday, I dog-sat AND babysat. So when I have weekends like this, that seem short, I like to take Monday mornings for myself.

Some highlights though, of my “working” weekend:

I recently ran out of the Birchbox sample Beauty Protector, on the left, which is a miracle worker for my hair!! It’s a leave-in conditioner I use when blow drying and straightening my hair. It’s weightless, non-greasy, adds shine, and is paraben and sulfate free! I’m so glad to have it back in my routine. I also ordered the full size of Harvey Prince’s Yogini perfume. I love yogini because it sticks with you through out the day and is a great Fall/Winter scent, not too sweet. Combined notes of sandalwood, grapefruit, Egyptian myrrh, amber, and jasmine. I am very pleased with both of these products! Thanks Birchbox!

I FINALLY finished Gone Girl! It took me a couple months, but it was worth it. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but like the book, I’ve heard it starts out slow, and then climaxes. The ending was a disappointment! Don’t think I would ever re-read this one. Any suggestions on what to read next??

At work it already feels like Christmastime! I’ve had fun merchandising the “Snow Village” in the front window and styling our “Christmas jammies”.

P.S. The Coffee Almond Baked Oatmeal turned out great, although, I think I’ll have it with a dollop of almond butter for breakfast later this week!

  1. Hey El! Just catching up on your blog. Love the new look! What type of blender did you buy? I’m in the market for a new one myself…and I use a very similar smoothie recipe!
