tid + bits


+What is up with me having awesome breakfasts lately? As I have mentioned on the blog before, I have been an active member of the Law Partners group at BYU this past year. This year is coming to an end, and I am going to be on the board next year! We all met up to learn about our responsibilities etc.... oh and to eat amazing crepes. There is ice cream inside that crepe people.... ice cream.

+Speaking of breakfast, isn't it funny how things change as we get older? During the week when I was younger my mother MADE us eat oatmeal for breakfast. I am talking Monday through Friday. We only got the "good" cereal on Saturdays. I absolutely despised it. Hated it with a passion. I would try and put as much brown sugar (as my mom would let me) in it to make it editable. Now as an adult, I love oatmeal :) I eat for breakfast almost every morning! Funny how things change isn't it?

+I am a list maker. I just like to write all kinds of to do lists, or little notes (hey I write little notes on my blog too! haha) to myself. Because of this you will find multiple loose papers all over my apartment, car, office, purse, you name it, there is probably an old, current and future list lying around (thanks mom for this habit!) While writing lists helps me stay organized, I decided I needed a better way to keep them all together (I tend to loose them because they are all loose) So I got this adorable little book to be used solely for my lists :) It is so pretty I have mixed feelings of wanting to use and then feeling guilty for writing on the pretty patterned paper! haha. Anyone else a list maker? Then you understand the immense satisfaction you get from crossing something  OFF your list :)

  3. We are twins haha crepes are my fave! And oatmeal.. When I was a kid, even the smell of it made me want to vomit but I love it now!! Basically my entire purse is filled with old and new to-do lists. I've even got them on my notepad app on my phone.. But there's something about writing them down and crossing them off that brings so much satisfaction :)

  8. Those crepes look soooo good! :] Also, I totally hated oatmeal growing up too and I eat it all the time now! It really is funny how those things change! And that notebook/journal is beautiful! I love writing lists too so I'm always on the lookout for cute little books like that!

  9. OMG. Ice cream? WOW, you just blew my mind.

    yes, I'm a list maker. It's makes me soosososososso happy to cross things off my list. I make myself a new todo list every morning when I get into the office so I can start my day with a nice crisp piece of paper and then scribble all over it. hehehe :)

  10. umm I feel (as I often do when reading your posts) that we would be very good friends. Or maybe we would be so alike that we wouldn't get along? I don't know, but what I do know is that I also hated oatmeal as a child and now cannot get enough of it, also I love crepes, and I am a chronic list-maker. and it's almost the weekend! have a good one!

  16. Oh my gosh! I must eat a crepe. RIGHT NOW!

    It is funny how your tastes change. I hated pretty much everything except grilled cheese and french fries. Now I love almost every fruit and veggie out there.

  20. Hey there Alycia, I found you :). I was in Law Partners as well. So you must know Tausha Bentz. She's a fantabulous friend of mine.

  22. Breakfast is the best! I am totally a post-it note girl, and I have them everywhere... but never where I really need them. I get the same way about pretty paper though... I get so scared I'll have to cross out a mistake, and the paper won't be cute anymore!

  23. my oatmeal-filled childhood sounds very similar:-) also, grape nuts, PLAIN cheerios, wheaties, etc... It was like Christmas day when we could eat the sugary stuff! xoxo

  24. oh my word. that crepe. I hope it was as DELICIOUS as it looks in the picture!
    I am a fellow list maker. (I love your list book, it's super cute.) The feeling of crossing through something on my list, makes my day!

    Also, I tagged you in my post today! It's a fun little Q&A thing. I hope you do it:)

  30. What a pretty journal! I'm guilty not of leaving little pieces of paper everywhere, but of buying every cute notepad or sticky note I see and then writing exactly one thing in each of them! Haha.
