Thank you all for the sweet comments last night regarding my move…..most of my stuff was over at Ryan’s anyway so there really wasn’t much work involved but it does feel kind of cool to call it home. I did receive sort of a snarky comment about how I claim to always be so religious and yet am moving in with my boyfriend and although I know I don’t HAVE to answer this, I want to. To set the record straight: I am NOT religious. I have a LOT of faith. Everyone makes decisions that are beneficial to them and every person is different. What works for someone doesn’t work for someone else and I don’t think there’s one right way of doing everything. I know it is the right decision to move in with Ryan….we have been dating now for 3 years and God put him in my life for a reason. Please don’t come at me with one sided perspectives—you don’t know the whole picture and you don’t know what I’ve just been through.
Okay, with THAT off my chest, let’s move on to breakfast!
Last night I soaked 1/3 cup oats + 1 tbsp Ruth’s Chia Breakfast Cereal with 1/2 cup vanilla coconut milk. This morning I stirred in 1/2 cup 0% Fage, some raspberries and a big scoop of raw almond butter for “overnight chia oats”…it was delicious! I’m more of a fan of hot breakfasts than cold ones because naturally I’m always chilly, but this is a great alternative and I can see myself eating a lot of during the hot summer months.
Some people have also asked about Mikey, Mikan and Dexter…the three stooges! Mikan and Mikey live with my parents……my mom and dad LOVE that tiny little furball because of all the meaning it has to my brother. Ryan and I adopted Dexter a little over a year ago together but this is the first time the three of us are living together as a little family. Don’t worry, there will still be tons of Mikey pictures…..my parents only live 3 miles away and I will be over there every day.
My parents are going to church this morning but I’m just not ready to go back into the sanctuary where the service was held for John only a few short days ago. I’ll figure things out in my own time but as for this morning, I’m headed to a 9 am Bikram class to sweat it out.
