Gift boxes for Shannon's Bachelorette weekend!!

And then for the aftermath: personalized water bottles, Advil, and homemade hair ties.

The Bride-to-Be's gift box has one extra thing.  The diamond ring pin that I wore at my bridal shower and bachelorette which was passed down to me by a friend.  I love that we have started a new tradition :)

Baked Oatmeal

I got this recipe by mixing together a few different Pinterest pins J
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • chopped strawberries
  • blueberries
  • 1 large egg (lightly beaten)
  • 3 tbs. butter (melted)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat Oven to 375˚ and spray a 9x9 baking dish with cooking spray. Mix dry ingredients and fruit in a large bowl. Save some of the fruit to put on top. In a small bowl, mix together wet ingredients.

Put dry mixture into the baking dish and arrange the remaining fruit on top. Pour wet mixture over the top and gently shake the baking dish so that milk mixture settles into the oats.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown.  Add a sprinkle of brown sugar and put under the broiler for 1 minute.

Kale Smoothies

I have been making smoothies lately.  Depending on what I have in the fridge, I put in frozen berries, milk or juice, yogurt, banana, kale or spinach. 
It's amazing how much of the greens you can put in without changing the color or taste.
