Mother's Day Baked Oatmeal

Happy Mother's Day! I hope all of you mommies were spoiled and felt the love from your little ones this Sunday. You deserve it! Even though my husband offered to make me breakfast, I really wanted something other than sausage and pancakes. So I made us all Baked Oatmeal with Lemon and Blueberries - and it was de-wicious (as my 2 year old would say)!

We had a lovely morning just hanging out after breakfast and then my husband and I strapped the boys into our double jogging stroller and went on a 5k run. I had gotten a pink Garmin running watch for Mother's Day and I was excited to try it out - not too excited that half our run was straight uphill though!

I hope you get to try out this oatmeal and have a wonderful week.
