Even When I'm Not Trying

Hey bloggies!

I can't believe we're at Monday already-it's insane! Mom and I went out to register on Sunday while the hubby went to Lowe's to price out new carpet for the baby's room. I am so thankful that my mom went with me-I would've been lost without her! I was hoping it wouldn't take us long to register, but it took almost three hours! There is so much stuff to get that it's ridiculous!

Last week, while walking from the train station to work, there were representatives from Quaker handing out free samples of cereal. Even when I'm not trying to be a food blogger, something like this happens.

Quaker Oatmeal Squares with a hint of brown sugar.

Normally I would take the samples home to the hubby to test out with me, but I was so hungry, and the nutritionals didn't look so bad.

I snacked on these little gems in the morning and they held me until lunch time. They had just the right amount of crunch without being obnoxious and the right amount of sweetness without being overly sweet. I think I'd buy them if they were on sale. They were really yummy!

Question of the Day:
Any good finds lately? Tell me about it!

Until next time!

I've heard registering for a baby can be totally overwhelming. That cereal looks awesome. I recently got quakers puffed rice and puffed wheat cereals and they both ROCK! Especially in parfaits or protein shakes

My friend registered for her baby and we spent ALL day trying out strollers at the store, opening them, closing them and pushing them. Heck half we didn't even know how to open!! I haven't tried that cereal yet, but it looks delish!

Registering for a baby sounds fun, but completely overwhelming! Glad you survived it!

My recent new food finds have been millet bread, tempeh, and light coconut milk.

I love quaker oat squares!! It's one of my favorite cereals but always too expensive for me!

I love that cereal! And cereal is the perfect preggo snack. I craved cereal like no other when pregnant with M.

I'm glad you had someone to help register. It is very overwhelming. And there are so many things you don't need but look cool and then things you REALLY need that you don't think to register for. It helps having someone who knows the ropes.

Shannon-my recommendation is to give yourself plenty of time and to start with the furniture first. I think that was what took us the longest!
