Too Many Cravings

by Courtney on August 3, 2010

And the winner is…ROBERTOOOOO!!


He’s such a cutie! Seriously, look at that dimple! ;)

Sarah & I had such a fun time watching the season finale of The Bachelorette last night! She was “Team Chris” all the way, where as I had a soft spot for both of them, for different reasons. When Ali picked Roberto, I’d say I was pretty darn psyched for her! Sarah, on the other hand, may have needed a tissue. ;) If she wasn’t engaged, I’m pretty sure we would have been taking a road trip to Cape Cod last night (right, Sarah?!?) :-D We’re both routing for Chris to be the next Bachelor.


This morning, I woke up craving about five different things for breakfast. Bagel + PB, cereal, oats, Manna Bread, pancakes…GAH! :shock: After weighing my options, I figured that oats would give me the most “wiggle room” when it came to feeding as many as my cravings as possible.


Today’s bowl:

-1/4 cup wheatberries

-1/4 cup oats

-3/4 cup water (out of milk!)

-1/2 mashed banana

-1/2 tsp vanilla extract


The best part: my toppings helped cure almost ALL of my cravings:

A crumbled piece of Fruit & Nut Manna Bread, a small handful of Quaker Oatmeal Squares, and a spoonful of Blizzard Butter.


The oats were definitely missing a little somethin’ today. I think it was the missing milk. :(


This morning includes a much-needed grocery trip, and some form of a workout; I’m pretty sure I foresee some Pilates & yoga in my future. :-D

Question for the Morning:

Did you watch The Bachelorette? Were you “Team Chris” or “Team Roberto”?

I really like Chris and didn’t want him to get hurt, but yeah Roberto. I hope Chris is the next Bachelor, he’ll treat someone really great.

Holy cow, you fit a lot of different things into that bowl!

I was sort of indifferent with the final two — a win, win if you will. :) I think they are both great guys. Hopefully this one lasts – I hate when they break up like a month later – I’m always pulling for them to make it!

Would you believe I only watched the last two episodes and I would have bet my life that she picked Roberto..their chemistry was insane! ;)

That oatmeal looks wonderful!!! I didn’t watch the Bachelorette….sorry!! :(


9 CK August 3, 2010 at 10:58 am

I liked both, but could see the way Roberto lit up every time Ali was around. I am also hoping Chris becomes the next bachelor.

Both good guys. It was tough, if Ali hadn’t picked Roberto…I may have tried to track him down for myself. Such a hottie!


11 Meagan August 3, 2010 at 11:16 am

I was 100% Team Chris! Oh well, but I really hope he is the next Bachelor, such a cutie!


12 Hillary August 3, 2010 at 12:03 pm

Poor Chris… BUT I am Team Roberto. I was so so so happy when he ‘won’! God, they’re adorable together.

I loved Chris! I would have chosen him, but I dont think Roberto was a bad choice at all.
