• 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!

    •  Memorial weekend'n ❤️ #quincyrhys  Happy 4 months my chubby bunny! It's crazy to think that 8 years ago today your pops asked me to marry him and now here you are already 4 months old. You are happy and smiling 90% of the time and still screamy 10% of the time. Much better, but your unpredictable screaminess still pops up at the times when I'm trying to get out of the house or eat, usually both at once. I can take a hint. You are 17 lbs and almost 26 inches - putting you in the 90th % for height and 80th for weight. Oh, and your head is in the 94th % - which I'm fine with since it was a nice slightly below average size when you were born. You are hilariously huge  Your daddy says if you keep growing like this people are going to start calling you Hodor You have rolled from belly to back a few times (a small miracle given your size and how little floor time you've been able to have due to your reflux), scoot yourself with your feet when laying on your back, have reached for and grabbed a toy, and are a chatterbox. You like music, like being held in sitting and standing positions, and really wanna eat your hands. You are a champion napper -- usually taking a 2-3 hr one in the morning and a good afternoon one as well. I can even put you down without soothing you to sleep first and you fall asleep on your own - something that your brothers didn't do until at least 6 months old. You're sleeping from around 7:30 pm - 7 am, waking around 3:30 for a snack (you're totally not hungry either, you just miss me). You're just the cutest with your fat rolls and cheek dimps and duck fluff hair and big gummy smiles and you have everyone of us completely smitten.  #quincysmonthbymonth
       Not gonna lie, it's been reeeeeaally nice having an almost empty house this week while the big boys are out of town and it's just Quincy and me. It's so peaceful and clean.  But when I get sent pictures like this of my boys with my cutie pie nephew Braxton, I start missing them something fierce and can't wait to see them tomorrow. #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin #brothersandcousins #sooooooomanyboys  We didn't remember to take his 4 month photos today (we'll just pretend the 26th is tomorrow ) but we did manage a photo for #rednoseday.
