Let’s be real, the days are getting longer, but that means I am cramming even more into them now than I was. How about you? My mornings start at 4am, so that I have time to wake up, walk the dog, take a shower, get ready for work, BLOG, try to eat something before I go, and kiss Ben if he is home. There really isn’t much time to enjoy the mornings, and this is all so I can make it to work by 7. *side note* Dear Lawd, help us when little toddling k-words enter the picture!!

So I need breakfast. I always have been a breakfast eater. It used to be bagels, cream cheese and turkey – back when I was in high school and was running 5 miles a day and had volleyball practice. Now, I need to be a little more sensible. But still need something fast. Enter overnight oats! And these patriotic ones at that! These red white and blueberry overnight oats have fresh fruit, shredded coconut, a touch of white chocolate – just because – and blueberries for days! I can run out the door on time now.Red White and Blueberry Overnight Oats - with Red Raspberries, Shredded Coconut, and Fresh Blueberries!

And let’s not forget the other thing I now have to fit into my busy work days – watching Game of Thrones that day AFTER it airs!! What kinda crap is this?!

Well, as part of that whole Ben-working-nights BS we keep running up against, he works every Sunday night. It’s not typically problematic… except when GoT is on and I promise him that I will wait until Monday to watch it with him.

I just want everyone to appreciate how giving I am. Because now I have to avoid the internet for a full day – which as a food blogger IS BASICALLY IMPOSSIBLE!! Red White and Blueberry Overnight Oats - with Red Raspberries, Shredded Coconut, and Fresh Blueberries!

I tried to think of ways to watch it, without telling him, but my poker face is a total joke. And if somehow I actually managed to watch it, I’m sure my Apple TV would give me away with its “resume playing” note, if I don’t manage to watch it all the way through the credits – because that’s just the kind of jerk the Apple TV is. It doesn’t lie for you at all!! C’mon Apple, help a desperate girl out!

So t-minus 13 hours until I get to catch up on last night’s episode – send prayers and good wishes, because I am going to be fighting the good fight today to not spoil it. Feel free to laugh, because this struggle is indeed – REAL.

Thank goodness this breakfast isn’t a struggle. Whip up a few of these to pack and take out the door! Create layers of fresh red raspberries and blueberries in the mix, toss on a little shredded coconut, and hearty rolled oats for a protein packed breakfast.
