Friday Finds

The perfect carry all tote with an adorable monogram from Kelly in the City
An easy Dill Pickle Dip to whip up for Super Bowl Sunday
A dreamy bedroom scene that I would kill to curl up in right about now

Happy Friday all! I don't know about you, but I'm so glad it's finally here. I've been battling some kinda cold this past week which made it go by that much slower. So I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend which will hopefully help me to recoup from this nasty bug. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Baked Oatmeal


I made this super simple Baked Oatmeal over the weekend to eat for breakfast throughout the week. It is absolutely delicious and healthy to boot! Either eat it cold, right out of the fridge, or throw it in the microwave and enjoy it warm, it's absolutely to die for. I can't wait to try it out with different fruits in the future! 
Ingredients

  • 2 Cups All Natural Oats
  • 1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 Cup Strawberries, sliced
  • 1 Cup Blueberries
  • 1 Banana
  • 2 Cups Milk, Fat-Free
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla

Recipe

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Spray a 10X10 casserole dish with cooking spray
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and half the berries. Add to the casserole dish
  • In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg, and vanilla. Whisk and pour over the oat mixture, making sure the oats are soaked
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes or until firm


Makes 9 servings. 4 Weight Watchers Points Plus

One Year



Anthropologie Dress , Nine West Shoes, Vintage Bangle 

It's officially been one year since I worked up the courage to share my first style post here on Simple Found Treasures. It's kinda like a blogiversary (is that a thing?)! A lot has changed in that year, I like to think this little spot on the web has only gotten better since then. I'm so grateful to all of you out there that take the time to read my post and like my photos, without you this just wouldn't be as fun. Hopefully this next year only brings more exciting things to Simple Found Treasures!

Friday Finds


A fun Floral Sweatshirt to brighten up these gloomy days
A classic Wedge Bootie
An easy way to share memories with a Smartphone Wireless Printer
A quick Five Ingredient Pasta to whip up for dinner

Happy Friday everyone! I don't know about you, but this week flew by! I feel like I'm finally back in the swing of things with two weeks of class under my belt this semester. My weekend will be filled with homework, dog shows (yes, we have a Portuguese Water Dog that is a knockout in the ring) and working on some posts that you'll see soon here on Simple Found Treasures! Speaking of new posts, is there anything you'd like to see more of, things I could do without? I'd love your feedback!

I'm always looking for simple appetizers, like this Jalapeno Whipped Feta Dip

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous week. I started classes back up for the spring semester, so I'll be doing a lot of reading this weekend. What are you all doing this weekend, any fun plans?

Blanket Scarf

Blanket scarves are all the rage this season and I have to confess I have quite a few...but I particularly love this one from Alixandra Collections. If you haven't checked out Alixandra Collections yet I highly suggest you do! They have a great selection of clothing and accessories as well as great jewelry.

Black and White

Happy Monday everyone! With the cold temps here in Chicago I've been living in sweaters. I absolutely love this oversized cardigan from Old Navy. Enjoy your week!

TGIF! I had yesterday off due to the frigid temps we've been experiencing here in Chiberia.  So this week has been a little jumbled for me, but I'm glad it's Friday and that I'm back on a regular schedule after the holidays. I'm looking forward to a weekend of relaxing with no plans but possibly baking these chocolate peanut butter shortbread cookies..what about you guys, any exciting plans?

New Year, New Gear




It's that time of year when most of us are making resolutions to be healthier, or just to shed that holiday weight. So let's look good while we do it, shall we?  Here are a few of my gym must-haves to get you started. Side note-Old Navy is having an AMAZING sale on all of their activewear right now and I can't say enough good things about their leggings, I live in them! Also, if you don't have an activity tracker already, I highly suggest the Fitbit Zip, it's only $60 and syncs to an app on your smartphone. Now let's go hit the gym..or the couch, I'm not here to judge! haha!

A Year in Review


I can't believe an entire year has passed by already. January is always a time for reflection, so I thought I would take a look back at some of my favorites posts over the year. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
