What I Eat Wednesday: Peanut Butter Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Hey there! I hope you are having a fabulous Wednesday!  The days have been going fast and slow at the same time for me.  I have been leaving earlier to get to work because traffic is so bad when the school year gets back into full swing.  Rant: I live 13 miles away from work and it takes me 35-45 minutes to get to work!  CRAZY ANNOYING!  End rant.  

Anyway, adjusting to a new schedule is always difficult (like leaving earlier for work is sort of killing me), but at least fall weather will be coming soon and you know what that means!? Pumpkin Spice season and all of the fall scents (which I absolutely adore) will be all over.  AND boots and scarves will be coming back out from the fall/winter wardrobe. 🙂

Needless to say, I’m excited…but, let’s move onto today’s yummy recipe.
