Things I am thinking about today...
- In the state of Michigan, the big college football rivalry is between Michigan State University and the University of Michigan. The big game is not for a few weeks, but this is what it looks like at my house on every football Saturday. My husband and I are MSU alumni and Melissa is currently a student there. Megan is a recent U of M grad and we love to represent her allegiance too. It is an odd sight in this state, but we enjoy, proudly showing our ties to both schools :-)
- This is my new favorite breakfast in the morning. Put 1/2 cup oatmeal in a mason jar. Sprinkle on a handful of golden raisins. Sprinkle on cinnamon and Splenda to taste. Pour 1/2 cup skim milk over this. Put lid on jar and leave in fridge overnight. Oats will absorb milk overnight and be creamy and delicious. I like a quick, healthy breakfast in the morning and I like that it is ready for me when I get up. With Diabetes, portion control is important, and this is the perfect serving of healthy carbs and protein.
- I am packing this morning for a quick trip to Florida. Megan and I are flying to the Tampa/Clearwater area to visit my in-laws, for a few days. My husband has to stay behind and work, so it will be a special mother/daughter trip, and we will have fun, lounging by the pool, reading and making a few tropical drinks.
