Ikea Sunday

Yay, it’s finally sunny and chilly in this beautiful city!! (well not chilly for most of you, but 60’s for me is)


I really love waking up to mornings like these, just puts me in a great mood to be outdoors. My boyfriend picked me up early to do some shopping at Ikea and I was excited because I needed some new oatmeal bowls πŸ™‚

I was looking forward to my overnights oats for breakfast. I haven’t made these in a while because they never seem to come out so great. The one’s I made last night on the other hand were fantastic! I added Fage (that made it) along with a banana and left it overnight. It was a lot of goodness when I got to it in the morning. Not oats in a jar but oats in a mug πŸ™‚


After breakfast I was ready for a long shopping day. Ikea is just one of those places where you seem to be there for a long time, especially when just browsing around since there is so much to see!

Hand in hand on our way πŸ™‚ Love him. As anticipated we were there for quite some time but I found some bowls to use so I am super excited to use them tomorrow morning πŸ˜€

After some serious shopping we had to stop by the grocery store to buy some food to make for lunch and by this time I was one starving chick.

Luckily lunch was quick and easy

Chicken with sweet potatoes and couscous

A little sriracha to ignite the palate. Some bites were followed by large gulps of water!! Totally worth it though, it was delish.

Dinner was also another winner and it was my little idea.

Bean burrito

Yummy with cheese inside and outside topped with some salsa!! We used canned refried beans and just baked it, until the cheese melted and the beans were warm. Definitely hit the spot.

If only everyday could look like this:

Hopefully tomorrow will be another gorgeous day, too bad it’s Monday!! 😦

Oh and I was able to find a Principles of Nutrition class to take for a mini term at a local college. It starts Feb 12 until April but it’s on Saturdays. I was pretty excited to find it since I have to take Ogo II as a pre req and would rather not be involved in any other classes at that point. Unfortunately the book for my nutrition class is $130!!! Ahhh how crazy lol I usually have pretty good luck finding used books for much cheaper but I cannot find this one anywhere 😦 Not really sure if I should buy it or rent it but since it is a basic level nutrition class I might need it for referencing later on. Decisions, decisions, decisions!

    Oo I never made couscous! I hear it’s similar to quinoa though. Your lunch looks sooo good with it!

    Andddd I would DIE for some weather in the 60’s. I woke up here (in Philly) to below zero temps, not fun at all :/

    I just tried couscous the other day for the first time and it really is a lot of quinoa. You’d love it πŸ™‚
