Odds & Ends

Pin It

1. I'm not cereal obsessed by any means, but I recently won a box of Barbara's Shredded Oats in a giveaway and might be changing my tune when it comes to cereal. I ate them both with and without milk and might have preferred them plain, eaten alongside a green smoothie for breakfast. Has anyone seen these in stores? I know they can be bought online but the temptation to buy like 6 boxes is too great...I probably just need one at a time ;)

(San Francisco last September)
2. Three Reasons to Travel When You're Young. I love this. I love traveling. Trips to Charleston, Nashville, and (hopefully!) New York currently on the docket. All places we've been before, but new adventures in store this time!

3. And while travel is great, there's also something to be said about the fantastic place we live. A lot of my Facebook friends have been posting the link to this New York Times article, Loving the Midwest (and specifically St. Louis!) and it completely resonated with me. Ask me why I love where we live and you're probably get bored long before I finish my answer!

4. A few weekends ago at a family party, my aunt brought the corn and black bean salsa from The Sweets Life. I don't think I'd had it since I posted it three years ago but I could not step away from the chip and dip bowl! So simple, so good. Make it!!
