“You Are Beautiful”

by Courtney on August 5, 2010

This morning I made sure to get myself all settled & situated in front of the TV, with my breakfast, by 8:30 so I’d be able to watch Caitlin on the Today Show!

Waiting patiently…

You Go Girl!!

Caitlin totally rocked her interview this morning. She was absolutely stunning, elegant, well poised, and beyond inspirational. I probably would have been rambling on like a fool!

I’ve always found Operation Beautiful to be one of the most amazing movements I’ve ever followed, but I couldn’t help but feel that much more inspired after watching this morning’s segment. Seeing just how far something as simple as a friendly, positive note can go, and the difference it can make, really is just phenomenal. Not only am I proud of Caitlin, but I am so especially proud to be a part of such a supportive, caring community of girls (and guys) who all believe that we really can make a difference. Changing the world, one Post-It at a time!

Breakfast

While watching the Today Show, I enjoyed one of the most incredible batches of overnight oats EVER!!

Last night when I got home from my softball game (which we WON, YAY!) I whipped up a quick batch of overnighters to enjoy for the morning.

In the bowl:

  • 1/3 cup wheatberries
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 3/4 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • Golden raisins
  • Cinnamon & nutmeg

While the oats themselves were incredibly creamy and delicious, it was (once again) the toppings that stole the show.

  • 1 tbsp PB2
  • 1-1/2 crumbled Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies! :-P

Holy DELICIOUS!! I think I need to have these cookies on hand at all times, if for nothing else than a topping for oats. The bites with chocolate chips were such a sweet treat!

I also had a glass of iced coffee (YES, finally made some of my own!) with vanilla almond milk. I didn’t do half bad! ;)

I think all of us should create an overnight oats recipe book!

Hmm, I’m not sure what my post-it note would say. I suppose since I’m so focused on baking… ‘you can eat your cake and be beautiful too’ :)

I love the post-it movement. Mine would say: Happiness isn’t about the reflection in the mirror but the reflection of your soul.

Love the addition of the cookie on top- sounds so good.

The PB2 works so well in oats doesn’t it? Loves it!

“You matter” is what mine would say ;)
