Good Morning and a very Happy Spring as well!
Knowing today officially welcomes the light at the end of the tunnel for us Northerners, this makes me want to bust out the bright colors and do a million happy dances.
I just might for today’s workout. (<- Stay tuned!)
Today started with an extra pep in my step. We are dog sitting for the remainder of the week, so I now have two sets of happy puppy eyes waking me up in the mornings. I’ll be sure to share some photos soon since they are are ridiculously cute together!
After a quick morning walk with them, I put on the coffee and enjoyed a fresh cup through a straw.
Yup, a straw. I just started a new whitening kit from the dentist that was included in my new patient package six months ago, and I have about nine days left in the process.
I was advised to keep away from any teeth staining food during the ten days of bleaching, but clearly giving up coffee isn’t an option for this girl.
Drinking it through a straw it is!
Accompanying my coffee was also something new for breakfast.
While grocery shopping a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this bag of gluten free Super Oats hot cereal.
I am already an oatmeal fan, so when I saw the combination of chia, quinoa, amaranth added into the mix, I had to give it a go.
I flavored it with a few big swirls of honey and topped it with fresh berries. I bypassed the brown sugar, but would suggest adding that as well if you don’t like a plain tasting oatmeal. (I’ve never minded it!)
The texture was very similar to regular oatmeal, and even maybe a little thicker. I would never guess this mixture to be gluten free!

Can you get the new Skyscape shoes with the discount???
I don’t think so. 🙁 I tried to checkout a pair using the code and it didn’t work for that item. It did on everything else I selected though!
Did you get a small or an XS in the tank?
I got an XS! I’m normally between an XS/S on top for fitness gear, but liked this one tighter.
Thank you! I figured I’d order one size up from you. Small it is! : )
Okay … please tell me if you are having success drinking hot beverages through a straw? I also have whitening gel from my dentists, but I CANNOT seem to drink hot things from a straw. No matter what, I end up burning the roof of my mouth because I can’t wait for it to cool down enough. Red wine from a straw? That has not been a problem for me … 🙂

Ha, I’ve actually never tried wine through a straw! I’m sure I’ll come across it eventually during this process though. As far as burning the top of your mouth goes, I totally get that. Unfortunately, all I can suggest is patience. Once it’s warm (not hot) there shouldn’t be any burning. 😉
LOL at you drinking the hot coffee through a straw. Kind of a good idea if you ask me. People always ask why my teeth are so white – it’s because I drink most everything (not tea though) through a straw. Maybe I should start doing it with my hot stuff too.
The hot stuff is trickier, and kind of takes he comfort of drinking it away for me… but is for sure a whitening saver!

love super oats! i’ve been eating them in hawaii for breakfast.
Ahhh, Hawaii sounds so dreamy! Enjoy the rest of your vacay!
Those strawberries look so good! I can’t wait until they’re sweet again.
