Cozy: Oatmeal, Candles, and Quilts

Good Morning! What a lovely one it is! No pouring rain this morning! I can even see the sun peeking out from behind the clouds.
Well this morning I made a delicious bowl of oatmeal! I have been reading the Kath Eats Real Food blog and she has so many amazing recipes, not just of oatmeal but basically everything! I love reading her blog.

So here is my first bowl of oat made the KERF way!
Mixed in to the (1/2 cup) oats while cooking was a banana, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1/2 cup Almond Breeze unsweetend chocolate almond milk, 1/2 water, splash vanilla extract...and I think that is it. I think it would have been overall a little bit sweeter if my banana was a touch more ripe...oh well.

The topping made this breakfast amazing! Some coconut, a sprinkle more of chia seeds, and my favorite peanut butter from Peanut Butter & Co. Cinnamon Raisin Swirl! This peanut butter is sooo yummy.

I had coffee with So Delicious Coconut creamer, which is wonderful and I will be getting it again! My Candles by Victoria candle is burning in the background!
Candles by Victoria is such an awesome company! The candle I have is a mystery one so I don't know the name of the scent but it smells like something yummy and chocolatey! Lovely to burn on chilly mornings! I love all the candles I have purchased from Victoria! They are super scented and give off the best smell when they are burning! I just put in an order a week ago for a bunch of candles and I am sooo excited to get them! One scent I love is Honey I Washed the Kids, it smells just like a Lush soap!! So good! I also love the Almond Pastry scent, this is one of my favorites!! It reminds me of the almond croissants I always bought when I went to Bonte a Belgian waffle place in Philadelphia, the cafe is so cozy and smells like bakery heaven! I miss it....hmmm maybe I can convince the hubby to take a trip to Philly!!
But I love Candles by Victoria you should check it out! You will not be disappointed they have a scent for everyone!

I also want to show a picture of the beautiful quilt Justin's grandmother made for us for our wedding 10 lovely ladies worked on this quilt for 6 months! And you can tell because of the quality and the beauty of it!! I love it and we have a very proud grandma!! :)

I love all the blues and the greens in this quilt! We will use this forever. It is pretty cozy!

So that is all for now! Tonight I am making a new enchilada recipe that was given to me by Justin's Aunt Maureen! So I am looking forward to doing some cooking!! I will blog the recipe and picture either tonight or tomorrow!
