Eeeek!! I can’t get over how tasty this breakfast quinoa is! To be completely honest, this was my first time using this grain as a breakfast food, and I’m ecstatic with how tasty it turned out. I’ve never been a massive fan of oatmeal for breakfast, but something about the texture of the quinoa (it still has enough of a snappy bite when cooked) is completely sucking me in. The mushiness of oatmeal has never sat well with my palette, so I’ll be moving to the quinoa party for the unforeseeable future!

Since today’s Friday, let’s have some Friday fun talk! Normally by today I’m totally checked out for the weekend, but since we got our little in a Thursday/Friday daycare, I’m all work and productivity until afternoon pick-up. It’s been amazing to have these 10 hours a week to myself and I’m surprised how fast I can actually work with a few focused hours per day.

We don’t have any major plans for the weekend, but Kev is taking the little man on a playdate with a friend tomorrow, so I’m thinking about taking the opportunity to snag a pedicure with a friend and possibly do some thrifting! The other day I found a Kelty Kids Hiking Pack for $9.99 (normally about $300), so I’m on a bit of a bargain high right now. We’re tentatively planning a trip out to Oregon this coming Fall, so my next mission is to find our little guy a fall/winter wardrobe since all he has right now is sleeveless one piece outfits and shorts and onesies. We’re approaching record highs this weekend in August (104, 106, 107), so obviously he won’t be needing any of those clothes anytime soon!

I hope you have a lovely weekend friends!
