I made the best oatmeal today and have to share it with you guys! Â It’s nothing too out of the ordinary but the flavors tasted perfectly together and it was packed full of nutrition! Â I made old fashioned oats on the stove and then combined almonds, 1/2 of a banana, chia seeds, agave nectar, and a little bit of brown sugar.

On another note, this morning Otis and I ran 4 miles after he was so restless in the house. Â We was again awful on the run. Â He was running all over the place and then stopped every few steps at times. Â He was all over the place. Â Dog owners… how do you keep your dog in check on the lease?Â My arms got just as much of a workout as my legs during this run because I was constantly pulling with all my might on the lease. If you have any advice, please let me know!
I have a new addiction. Â Draw something is like pictionary on a phone! Â Try it, it’sÂ
