Weekend Rewind

How can it be Sunday evening already? I know, I know, I think I start every Sunday post that way… but seriously! It feels like it was just Friday evening (my favorite time of the week!).

My Saturday morning started off with a 60-minute spin class. I’ve admittedly been a little lax with my workouts lately, so it felt good to get some solid exercise in!

After class, I ran to Starbucks to pick up an iced coffee & “perfect oatmeal” for breakfast.

As I was adding some sugar & cream to my coffee, I noticed these little gems:

Has anyone ever seen these honey packets before? I hadn’t! I snagged two, figuring they’d be good to use in my overnight oats during the work week. (I definitely wanted to snag more than two, but didn’t want to draw attention to myself. ;-) )

I spent the better part of my Saturday cleaning. It had been quite a while since our apartment had a thorough cleaning. Chris was at work all day Saturday, so I went all out & a few hours later had a nice, clean place… phew!

Once Chris was home from work, I asked him if he’d be interested in going to see The Hunger Games. I read the novel last summer, but had yet to see the movie. We both really enjoyed it; definitely a good film adaptation in my opinion!

While at the movies, I ate a box of sour gummy worms… yum! Lucky for me, there weren’t many pieces in the box. While sort of a rip off, at least it insured that I didn’t down a day’s worth of calories in one sitting!

Before heading off to bed last night, I prepped some overnight oats to enjoy while skimming the paper & clipping coupons this morning. (That’s right folks; overnight oats are not just for weekdays!)

This bowl looked oddly similar to the stuff I bought at Starbucks yesterday:

The only difference was some semisweet chocolate chips I added to the mix.

Soon, I headed off to church, then ran a few errands including a Petco, Target, & grocery store trip.

After a little bit of time at home, Chris & I headed off to see the house I mentioned in Friday’s post. We really, really loved it, but I don’t want to say too much & jinx it!

Afterwards, we went to Chipotle to pick up some dinner. I was long overdue for a burrito bowl.

It was just as good as I remembered!

Now, I’m finishing up some laundry & getting ready to relax & read my current book (11/22/63). Gotta rest up for another week!

What are your favorite oatmeal mix-ins? If I’m going to eat oatmeal everyday (I can’t get enough!) I could at least try some new add-ins!

    All weekends are too short :-) Personally, I’d be in favor of having somewhat longer work days and a 3-day weekend every weekend… but AFTER I’m done being a teacher. I don’t want to know what my students would be like after 10 hours in school!

    I love mixing berries in my oats – it’s the best! And PB.

    This may be a stupid question, but I’ve only been to chipotle a few times, and I always feel kind of rushed to order so I don’t ask any questions – but what is the difference between a salad and a burrito bowl there?

    Have a great start to your week!

      I don’t think there’s much of a difference actually! :-) I don’t think that burrito bowls “traditionally” have lettuce in them & I don’t think that salads are supposed to have the rice in them. BUT, since it’s a “build your own” set-up, they pretty much add whatever you want to either option!

    It was a short weekend- but I think that towards the end of the year they all seem so stinking short! — the end is in sight though! Woop-Woop!
    The husband and I went to see it last weekend after I finished the first book. I do think it was a great adaptation- the husband liked it too! Win-win!
    ….Oatmeal- almond extract & greek yogurt! Mmmmm!

      It was great! Chris & I are big movie theater-goers either (we couldn’t remember the last one we saw!) but I think this was worth the trip!
