Moonlit Ocean!

I’m Friday night, I went to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront to see the Holiday lights that they have every year!

So when I was walking along the boardwalk and enjoying the lights, I saw that the moon was illuminating the ocean so brightly! I thought it was so cool so I went down to the beach to get a closer look! It was so amazing and looked so much prettier in person!

This is a late post but I figured it was still worth sharing! Lol

Have you experienced a moonlit Ocean before? If so, where did it take place?

Easy Homemade Granola Recipe!

This morning I wanted to have some yogurt for breakfast but I ran out of granola! I thought to myself, maybe I can just make my own granola! So I looked up a simple recipe to make my own granola at home!

Here’s what you’ll need:

-3 cups OLD FASHIONED oats

-1 cup of nuts of your choice

-2 tbsp chia seeds

-4 tbsp of honey or maple syrup

-3 tsp vanilla extract

-2 tsp cinnamon

-3 tbsp coconut oil

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 300 Degrees F.

2. Mix all ingredients together, put parchment paper on a baking sheet, and spread out a thin layer of the granola mixture.

3. Let it bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the granola starts to brown.

*Make sure to check the granola ever so often because it can burn easily.

Let it cool, then enjoy!

There are many fun ways that you can add this to a variety of dishes like:

Your favorite yogurt

As a topping for a baked apple

Add to muffins

Bake it in bread

Make granola bars

Eat with fruits

Roll bananas in the granola and freeze them

Add some sprinkles to a salad

Add to oatmeal for a nice crunch

Eat with mixed nuts

Place on top of a smoothie bowl or in your favorite smoothie

Your options are endless folks!

Storing your granola

You can store your freshly made granola in an airtight jar/container for up to 2 weeks long.

Or you can store in an airtight jar/container and keep in the freezer for a few months. When ready to eat it, just leave it on the counter to defrost overnight.

And there you have it! Homemade Granola that’s so easy to prepare!

Chillin By The Beach!

Even though it’s Fall season, the weather here in Virginia Beach has been warmer than expected! Because of that, I’ve been able to enjoy the beautiful warm and breezy weather by hanging out at the beach!

There is an area near the end of the boardwalk where they have a fishing spot. It was so many people out there so this must be fishing season lol. I was just sitting on the bench with hubby enjoying the warm weather and taking in the beautiful scenery around me!

Happy Thursday!

My Memorial Day Weekend!

Hey everyone! I know it’s late but I wanted to share with you what I did this holiday weekend.

My husband and I was able to ride the Surey bikes on the boardwalk. These bikes have multiple seats so the whole family can ride along while enjoying the beautiful views of the beach!

We went to hang out on the beach on Saturday which was a beautiful day! The sun was shining with a nice breeze flowing! I didn’t go all the way in the water but just enough to get my feet wet!

We were able to stop by Waffle House too! They are all over the place down here! There’s almost a Waffle House on every corner haha!

Some of my in laws live in VA Beach so we had a BBQ on Sunday. We had good food, drinks, and played a few games!

After all the fun I had, I didn’t want to go back home! Plus I love being at the beach haha! Hope you all enjoyed your Memorial weekend as much as I did! 😊
