Look out Philly! Here we come!

by Meghann on August 18, 2011

Gooooooooddddd Morning!


Good to know Derek still had a sense of humor after waking up at 6:00am.


That’s better. (minus the frizzy hair. whoa.)

Derek and I are currently waiting to board our flight to Philly, then we’re on our way to the Healthy Living Summit!

Did I mention Derek is going to Philly too?!?! Because he is!! He has plans for a ‘guys weekend’ with a few friends while we’re up there, but I plan to put him to work while we’re there. He’s going to learn way more about stuffing swag bags today and tomorrow then he’ll probably ever want to learn. I also think I found our bouncer for the cocktail party. πŸ˜‰

I made a jar of overnight oats last night and ate them right before we went through security.


In the mix

  • 1/2 cup Oats
  • Soy Milk
  • Plain Yogurt
  • Chia Seeds
  • Raisins
  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla Peanut Butter


With a peach on top!


It was so easy, I just threw it in my bag on the way out the door and didn’t have to worry about tracking down a meal at the airport.


The only thing missing was Maddie to help lick the last drops from the jar.


Now, I need to figure out what to do with this hair. If you see me in a ponytail later today, you know why. πŸ™‚

See ya!

Yay! Safe travels. I need to figure out these OIAJ. Every time I’ve made them I haven’t liked them πŸ™

I need to track down some of that vanilla PB!! Safe travels to the HLS – sounds like you are going to have a blast! Unfortunately I can’t make it this year because I have another fitness conference this weekend to go to (still loads of fun – I’m super pumped) but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they don’t fall on the same weekend again next year. Have a fantastic time! πŸ™‚

Love overnight oats (and I have you to think to turning me onto them :)). Fage 17.6 ounce containers are great for it, and I can just easily toss it out afterwards. I also always pack my own food for long flights, but that’s usually lunch and snacks. Have fun at the summit! Can’t wait to hear how it goes.

1. Your shirt is adorable. Love it.
2. Whenever Derek wears his MM shirt, I swoon. I need to make shirts with my blog name and have my boyfriend wear them so I can swoon some more ; )
3. Be safe, have fun!

Haha…living in Florida pretty much guarantees flat and frizzy hair with the humidity at 100%. MISERABLE! At least we are all in the same frizzy boat together!

Safe travels, and all that jazz. And I must admit, I kind of like the frizz.

MUST remember to pack my umbrella (ella, ella, eh?) for the weekend. The forecast…. is rough.

34 Sara @my less serious life August 18, 2011 at 10:38 am

Inspired by the blogger world, I made my first batch of overnight oats last night – delish! But, yours had vanilla pb! Yum yum! I also had the thought that, in the right container, this would be the perfect thing to make the night before a busy day where there was no time for sitting down to breakfast. And, you proved that here! Love it!

Ahh Philly is miserable today!! If I’m not attending the HLS but live in Philly, is it ok to still come out afterward to meet everyone?

Safe and happy travels, and have an amazing time! So nice to be travelling with your beau too πŸ™‚ Great call on the breakfast…it saves so much time and hassle trying to find something healthy at the airport…oats in a jar is perfectly portable, too! Genius, lol! πŸ™‚ xyx

I love Overnight oats when I know I will be in a hurry the next morning… or in a hotel with a fridge. Have a great time at the HLS! I am so jealous about hearing about all the other bloggers who are going… keep us informed if the wifi prices don’t prevent you from signing on!

FYI: I’m pretty that you can take oats through security- it’s not considered a cream, HA!
