• Soaked Oats Recipe + Food to Love

    soaked oats recipe | lovely ever after

    Happy Friday, and welcome to our first official Lovely Ever After post!  In case you missed the announcement, Oh Lovely Day is starting a weekly series called Lovely Ever After.  Inspired by my post-wedding days, especially my time as a mother, I want to share inspiration and tips for newlyweds, nesting, entertaining, and all things baby.  A lot of focus will be put on practical tips and real stories from myself and other mothers, and I’ll be asking my momma friends and favorite mom bloggers to help out as well.  I’ll definitely be sharing my story and what I’ve learned along the way, including my struggle with postpartum depression, nursing, sleep training, feeding a picky toddler, and many other things that I wish I had heard someone else talk about while I was going through it myself.  But today my friend Rachelle of Wiley Valentine is sharing a favorite healthy recipe with us that is sure to please even the pickiest eaters in your family.  Rachelle writes a regular Mom Monday series that I love and also recently started Food to Love, an empowering workshop giving parents the knowledge and tools to feed their families with love.  Since I’ve struggled with a picky toddler myself, this post is especially helpful for parents like me.  Take it away, Rachelle! 

    soaked oats recipe | lovely ever after I am delighted to be sharing this family favorite recipe with Oh Lovely Day readers today. It’s something that only takes a few minutes to make, it’s healthy, easy, and your whole family will LOVE it!

    soaked oats in a jar | lovely ever after Gathering all of the ingredients listed above, place all but the milk in the jar and stir. Cover with milk and stir again. Place the lid on the jar and refridgerate for around 12 hours. Make ahead the night before. In the morning top with fresh fruit and enjoy!

    Doesn’t this sound delish!?  And the best part is it is healthy too.  It always makes me feel good to when I make something healthy for my family that they also love to eat.  I plan to try this over the weekend.  If you do as well please share :)  And thanks again Rachelle for the yummy recipe.

    And for those of you in the Southern California area:  The Food To Love Workshop is an afternoon of hands-on demonstrations, shared knowledge of healthy eating habits, and an open forum for discussion and questions. We seek to empower parents with the importance of feeding their families good, healthy, homemade, organic foods. We’ll also cover topics such as using organic and natural household products and how to make it fun for the whole family!  If you’d like to buy tickets to attend the Food to Love Workshop (I’ll be there!) you can go here.

    PS- Don’t forget to enter our current giveaway, which ends tomorrow!

    •  Today had some highs and some lows. It was way way way too hot to be this pregnant and it turns out that all the pressure and pain I'm feeling is not this baby's head peeking out yet (if I could see down there I would swear he would be looking back up at me), as there is no dilation happening so far. Upside, I saw Dave Grohl at my OB's office (with his pregnant wife, obvs) and he said hi and gave me a sympathetic smile. I almost peed my pants (more than usual) as I seriously love Dave Grohl. Also, this pretty pretty @doielounge robe showed up at my door and I can wait to treat myself to wearing it post-baby. Presents make me happy. So I think presents and Dave Grohl beat the heat and sealed cervix. For today... Side note: if you want to DIY a sequin hanger of your own, I shared a DIY for it a while back. Just search DIY sequin hanger on the blog (link in profile). It, and said robe, are both perfect for wedding photos, bridesmaid gifts, etc.
       #tbt to baby Charlie, looking all cute and getting me excited for spit bubbles, razzing, and baby laughs all over again. And also to get me through the hottest day of the year at 9 months pregnant. Eff off heat!
