Eyes Glued Shut


This morning I did something I haven’t done probably since college. I woke up early, ate breakfast, then went back to sleep for two more hours. It was awesome.

Breakfast was at 7:30 and was oatmeal for a change!

+ a hard boiled egg!

For the oatmeal I used 1/2 cup oats with 1/2 cup vanilla soymilk + 1/2 cup water. Fresh blueberries and Peanut Butter & Co’s Cinnamon Raisin Swirl pb to top!

Twas a big pillow of peanut butter, that’s for sure!
And then after I ate I snuggled back with Ryan and Dexter and didn’t wake back up till 9:30! I guess my body needed the extra sleep?! I’ve got a big week coming up!
I’m off to do a quick 2 miles on the upstairs treadmill then officially start the day.

Question: in preparation for my final interview next weekend I was thinking about doing a series of separate wine posts this week. I’m interested in not only learning more myself, but also finding out what YOU all are drinking. Any thoughts?

    Hi Jenna, here in Australia I tend to drink Sauvingon Blanc, sometimes with Semillion as well. For reds we drink a lot of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvingon. The wines we drink are mostly Australian and New Zealand Sav Blancs. I had a Nappa Valley Pinot Griggio when I was in Hawaii last year though and I loved that!

    Awesome that you got some extra sleep!

    I like white wines over reds and even like blushes, sometimes but not white zin 😀 My favorites are pinot grigio, chenin blanc and savingnon blanc. A series on wine would be awesome!

    As an everyday wine I am loving Cavit’s Pinot Grigio, it is inexpensive and pairs perfectly with lighter summer meals. Columbia Crest’s Two Vine label is awesome with red meats. Both of those are really inexpensive but REALLY good, and what I tend to drift toward on my college budget, but still want a quality wine! I say YES to a series of wine posts, I love good reccomendations because there are SO many choices.

    I love the wine post idea! I’m a huge fan of reislings and Gerwersturmeiners (or however you spell it!) There’s something about the sweetness that I love. I’m getting into reds slowly…

    SO glad you got the extra sleep! You probably really needed it!

    Glad you got some much needed shut eye! My favorite wines are off-dry or dry white wines, but I do love Chateau St. Michelle’s Reisling. For every day wine I drink a lot of Barefoot.

    I would LOVE for you to do posts on different wines this week… I’m more of a beer and champagne drinker (I guess its b/c I don’t get my bubbles any other way– no soft drinks for me!) I would love to hear about different wines so I can finally buy some without going into it blindly. 🙂

    My favorites are Toad Hollow pinot grigio and Bottega Vinaia pinot grigio! I also really like Cakebread chardonnay.

    I think that would be a great way for you to learn more about wine (although I personally couldn’t help you in that department, since I don’t know anything about wine!).

    Yay for lots of sleep! Sunday mornings are glorious for them…good thing my church service is in the afternoon 😉

    Mmm oats look delicious!!! Was it overly filling for you as usual?

    Going back to bed after breakfast on the weekends is one of my favorite things! How do you like the cinnamon raisin PB? I’ve seen it in stores, but have been a bit hesitant to try…

  • Kim

    My favorite wine is the Spanish white albarino (especially by Nora.) For reds, definitely malbec or tempranillo by Trapiche! And you cant go wrong with Barefoot for light, drinkable everyday wines. Looking forward to your upcoming posts!

    Great plan Jenna! I love riesling, rose, and cabernet savignon. My favorite wine is from the Central coast of CA, or from the Olivery Winery in Bloomington, IN, my college town!

    Hey Jenna!
    Since moving to the Bay Area I have been exposed to TONS of amazing wines. Right now I am in love with Stanza Riesling, which is from Monterey, CA (1 hour south of where I am, and 2 1/2 hours south of Healdburg).

    Jenna, I am late joining this discussion, but I am SO EXCITED you are going to do some “wine blogs” :0)… I am learing what I like (merlot’s are my fave so far) but I am very intimidated when I am thinking of taking wine to a party…. what wine with what food, just because I like it will everybody else, etc….
    ANYWAY…. i will be staying tuned for all you have to say!

    Love the wine blogs. Right now I have a glass of Smoking Loon Merlot from California . It is a very nice in expensive wine. Best of luck with the interview 🙂
