Oh Happy Monday my loves!

Not going to lie, I have a case of the Monday Blues.

You wouldn’t think one could get so lazy in just two days, but I’m telling you, I’m liking this whole weekends off thing and being lazy.

This weekend was particularly dull, it’s a very tight pay check for Matt and I (ever notice how all bills seem to be due at the same time?) so there was really no extracurricular activity going on.

I did however manage to find some marvelous things to share with you, because Monday’s are a must to get Marvelous with the beautiful (and almost ready to pop!) Katie.

One thing I love about the weekends, I don’t have to eat breakfast in the car!

Always a plus right? I find I try to make a little more effort in making my meals presentable (really with only the blog in mind because I know I need something to share with you guys)  on the weekends.

The past few breakfasts have really been made with the thought: I have all this fruit I need to use before it goes bad, so I better shove as much as I can into breakfast.

Example 1:

Jamming an empty jar of Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter with fruit worked for me. I mean really, that stuff is so good (and out of season) that I have to savor every last smear.

By the way does anyone else find frozen grapes to be 2983232x more amazing? I do.

Example 2:

Fruit is always a must on my overnight oats, but this bowl got an extra dose.

Berry Lemonade Overnight TVP/PrOATs

– 1/4 cup rolled oats

– 1/4 cup TVP

– 1/2 cup almond milk (I use Silk vanilla)

– 7-9 drops NuNaturals Liquid Lemon Stevia

– dash of ginger and cinnamon

– 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder – stirred in at end (I used Plant Fusion – vanilla bean)

Topped with every berry imaginable.

I’m usually pretty consistent with my oatmeal add ins. Usually chocolate protein powder, usually an over abundance of cinnamon, but I saw someone post the whole “lemon” idea in oats, so I thought I would give it a shot.

Holy goodness. These oats were amazing and I will be doing this flavor profile again!

So even though we are on a budget, Sunday I got a little stir crazy.

Matt’s birthday is coming up and he is currently obsessed with bow-ties (I blame him being Dr. Who for Halloween). There is a local business called Dapper & Dash that sells bow ties that are recycled from the creators grandfathers old ties. It’s a pretty cool concept and I like to support local businesses, so I decided to take Matt shopping. We unfortunately did not find one that he really loved and left empty handed.  So what do you do after an unsuccessful shopping trip?
If you’re Debbie and Matt you stop by your favorite pub and have a beer.

Made sense to us. Matt also got to watch a little soccer, so it was a win-win if you ask me.

But then it was back to being lazy at home. We are dog sitting, so really we had some great company.

I mean look at that face.

Well loves, I will leave you with that cuteness. Oh and a little teaser for some deliciousness that is to come.

Remember my protein plantain pizza I posted about?

This is just a sneak peek at my blank canvas, you’ll have to come back to find out how my indecisive self topped it.

Have a wonderful week my luvs!

Have you tried frozen grapes? If not, you should. They make an amazing snack as well.

What do you think about bow ties on men?
