Overnight Oats.

You heard correctly!

I need to tell you about the unsung hero that is overnight oats. I stumbled across these guys a couple months ago when I was attempting to do some sort of meal plan. That didn't really work out, but I have held onto the recipe since and it has become a staple for breakfast.

Overnight oats are literally the easiest things to make. Like ever. 

Did I mention you can make multiple at a time and keep them on hand?!

Talk about convenient.

Combine some yummy ingredients in a cute mason jar and stick it in your fridge.

Feel free to get crafty with these guys. I switch up the fruit from time to time.

This part tends to get a little messy, but we're not on master chef here so who cares! I find if I use a knife to go along the inside of the measuring cup that it helps. 

(I'm also laughing at the idea of me on master chef.)

TIME FOR THE CHERRIES ON TOP

Easy as pie!

Stick that bad boy in the fridge and while you get your beauty sleep (not that you need it) the oats will do their magic! 

Mix everything together before you're ready to devour.

Also, if the idea of cold oats in the morning makes you want to run for the hills you can always warm them up in the microwave. 

DONT FORGET YOUR SPOON!!!!!!

Hello, its me.

Thanks for stumbling upon my blog.

I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. 

My name is Jes.

I am a 26 year old stay @ home mom. Currently residing in sunny San Diego with my boyfriend Anthony and our pride and joy, 16 M/O Theodore. Not to mention our two cats; Hamilton, a Himalayan Persian (fluffy AF) and Kevin, a Mainecoon tabby mix (huge AF). I love going on adventures and I'm always looking for the best chicken wing place or the best latte. Here are some fun random facts about myself!

(Maybe you can relate.)

 

  • Im obsessed with chicken wings.

  • I only drink espresso. Coffee worsens my anxiety.
  • I started modeling when I was 13 and "retired" when I was 18.
  • I do not know how to ride a bike. (too stubborn.)
  • I suffer from generalized anxiety & depression.
  • I won prom queen at my high school. 
  • I own too many mugs, but can't stop buying them. (sorry Anthony.)
  • I used to co-own an online vintage store called De Epoca.
  • I did ballet for eight years.
  • I can burp the ABC's. (real proud of this one.)
  • Im a HUGE listener. 
  • You can almost get to me to go anywhere with a promise of coffee.
  • I am obsessed with skincare and finding new products. 
  • I broke my ankle at hot dog on a stick when I was 14.

I definitely am an odd bird, but I wouldn't want it any other way. If think you would enjoy peeking into my life as a kooky crazy mama with her silly boy then this is definitely your cup of tea. I want to share all my newfound tips and tricks with you. (I have quite a few up my sleeve.)

 

Thanks for stopping by and getting to know me a little better!
