Hello ladies! Sorry for totally being MIA last night. It was a really rough night  for me last night and I wasn’t thinking clearly enough to post. I felt and still do feel quite bad, but I’m sure y’all will understand. (I’ll do a recap of yesterday and today.) I actually came home from school today. Some of my friends went home sick, and I was just feeling like crud. Still am. I came home around lunch time and slept for over two hours. Woke up feeling okay, but just all around icky. My stomach is really upset–especially after I eat anything. Odd, and quite annoying.

Right now I am sitting on the couch and watching wife swap. This show is so weird, yet so addicting! This show’s about an “all fitness” family (the trainer of the dallas cowboys cheerleaders) switches with a family who is run by the mother who bosses everyone (inc. her husband!) around. Insanity at it’s finest 😉


Breakfast: Oatmeal Pancakes topped with a wcw and jiff natural peanut butter, orange juice, and an apple–FABULOUS BREAKFAST! I swear, these pancakes are amazing 😀 For the recipe, scroll down!

Lunch: Normal lunch–PB sandwich, kashi crackers, and an apple

Snacks: Kashi pumpkin spice flax bar, an an apple with a tiny bit of wcw peanut butter100_2694

Dinner: We went out for my Mom’s birthday–I had salmon, a baked potato, and lots of grilled veggies

Snacks: I was quite full from the meal, so I had a piece of hummingbird cake made by my grandma 🙂 It’s a cake full of nuts and fruit. It’s really yummy! The rest of my night is sort of a blur. I don’t really wanna talk about it! It’s all good now100_2701100_2700100_2699


Breakfast: a small bowl of cascadian farms cereal, with a gala apple and wcw peanut butter100_27021100_2703100_2704

Lunch: a peanut butter sandwich, kashi crackers and veggie chips, and a gala apple

Snacks: Chocolate brownie Cliff bar and an apple–this cliff bar was amazing–I cannot wait to try get it again! YUM!100_2707100_2708100_2711100_2713100_2714

Last but certainly NOT least, here’s the recipe for my oatmeal pancakes!

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 and an 1/8 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 eggs


  1. soak the oats in the milk for at least five minutes (or overnight–most convenient)
  2. combine olive oil and eggs in a bowl, whisk
  3. in another bowl mix all the other dry ingredients
  4. combine oil mixture and oat mixture
  5. combine wet into dry
  6. go on and make as normal pancakes!

These pancakes are a family favorite! They are thinner than normal pancakes, but I think adding some baking powder helps that. Hope you enjoy them!!!!

Have a great night everyone!

❤ jess 🙂

I love your eats, that cake looks AMAZING, and I know that anything made by a Grandma is just divine…always. I’m also a huge fan of that Clif, it’s really rich and chocolately. Yum!
