I can see clearly now the rain is...

Here! It's still here. Why? Summer just started, so now I'm going to whine (okay, not really...well maybe a little bit). Today is going to be an AWESOME day, I can feel it already. Wanna know why? I'm sure you do.

Oats, canned pumpkin, banana, blueberries, blackberries, cinnamon, peanut butter!

First off, I love mornings! I've said this tons of times before but I really do! Today I woke up to a light drizzle (that's better than a torrential downpour though!) and decided hot oats would start the day off right. So I concocted an oaty, pumpkiny, peanut buttery breakfast complete with several a glass of Arizona Diet Lemon Iced Tea, the new SELF Magazine and my Google Reader!

I found this sweet little article written by Molly at Smart, Pretty and Awkward and I had to share it with you all. It's about time management, and balancing everything that a twenty-something faces in her life! So check it out and stop by Molly's blog too!

Anyway, today will be awesome because...I'm going on another date. I'm just a dating machine lately. Well not really, but I'm putting myself out there so kudos to me, air-fives all around! Yeahhhhhh! Even though sometimes I get bit by the self-esteem-downer bug, I've been trying to think confident and be confident. One lady who is truly helping me out is Meg over at Sunshine 'n Spice! Her posts are not only hilarious but so genuine, she really embraces herself, quirks and all...we should all try and be a little bit more like Meg, girl knows what's up!

Day in a nutshell: gym, shower, work, get ready fo' my date :) 
Any dating tips? 
Confidence tips? 
Life tips?
Since it's raining let's just all sit by the fire and make s'mores and cuddle...sound good?


  1. I am suchh a morning person too. And get it girrrl with the dates!! I think you're right about confidence being key. Hope you have fun!

  2. I think it's awesome that you're taking chances and putting yourself out there! I hope your date will be awesome, and if it isn't, then it's definitely him, not you! You're gorgeous, girl, and have no reason to feel down at all! Just be yourself, and be PROUD of that girl. Remember that there's no such thing as perfect - it's all about how you work what you got!

  3. I love that! Ha ha ha! The rain is def not going away... uggh! Have fun on your date!

    Hope you have a nice weekend

  4. So glad you liked the time management article! And those hot oats look *delicious*! Enjoy your Friday!


  5. Yum.. I am so craving pumpkin... !

    Have fun on your date :D

  6. That's great your getting the chance to go on so many dates, have fun! I have no dating tips, but I myself need some because I've on under 3 dates in my life (and I'm 21!).

    I love mornings too :)

  7. I WISH I were a morning person...I do whatever it takes to avoid bed time bc I'm such a night owl, but when morning comes...I'm not too thrilled!
    Hope your date was fun. My only tip would be to just totally let go and be yourself because if he doesn't like it then he's not right for you anyway!
    And you deserve mr. right;)
