On Tuesday, we are flying to Los Angeles to meet our new granddaughter! Here’s what I plan to wear on the plane (think layers and comfort), the delicious and healthy breakfast that I am making again, and some good things to watch on the screen!
It’s time for my favorite things with Annie and Cindy.
What To Eat — Anti-inflammatory Foods
This article by Better Homes & Gardens “8 Anti-Inflammatory Foods to Add to Your Diet” is a good reminder. Takeaway: It seems that we can all start our day out right with berries and whole grains. It’s been a while but, this Oatmeal Yogurt Parfait going back into my repertoire for breakfast.
This is great for a quick breakfast. Mix the night before you serve it. It keeps as long as the expiration date of the yogurt
- 32 oz container vanilla (not Greek) yogurt
- 2 cups plain uncooked oatmeal
- 1 small can crushed pineapple, undrained
- 2/3 cup sliced almonds
Stir and serve in the morning with fresh fruit. I've used strawberries, blueberries, apples, and peaches…whatever fruit we have on hand.
I have used sliced peaches, too. Try a different fruit each morning.
What To Watch
Elvis the Movie
When Howard went to a football game, I watched “Elvis” on television at home (I paid $20 for it). But I kept thinking how great the movie would be on the big screen. So I would recommend that. It’s really good.
Downtown Abbey Movie: A New Era
This was fun to have the gang back!
What To Wear To Dinner – A Comfortable Maxi Dress
This comfortable maxi dress from Anthropologie comes in Petite, Regular, and Plus sizes.
Our New Bedroom Sneak Peek
Next Thursday, I’m planning to show you our bedroom. It’s really huge so I can’t say it’s finished. But here is a sneak peek…
Wear On The Plane Travel Outfit
Since it will be hot in Jacksonville and hot in Los Angeles, I’m thinking comfort and layers will be key.
I tried the leopard print cardigan on in the J. Crew store. It’s nice and lightweight but I do not need any more sweaters! I will wear one of these that I already have with the comfy sneakers. I have the hair claws and carry one in my purse to get my hair off my neck when it’s hot. The Sugar lip treatment is hydrating and tinted for the high altitude.
