Cereal for dinner + other weekend non-events


I love dry flavorless old people cereal. I really do. I’m talking shredded wheat (no frosting necessary but it’s a welcome surprise if it’s there), Raisin Bran, Grape Nuts (does anyone else on Earth eat this?) and this nameless Trader Joe’s thing labeled “High Fiber Cereal.”

Even as a kid my preferred cereals were Cheerios, Kix and anything else plain. I do, however, freaking love me some Cinnamon Toast Crunch…

Anyway, last night I loaded the TJ’s High Fiber Cereal up with fruit and called it a day. It did the job.

Here are some equally un-thrilling moments from my life…

I’ve shifted into summer mode which is when I basically eat a watermelon every 48 hours.


Friday night I went to see Charlotte Squawks, an SNL-esque parody show, with my friend Jen. (It was hilarious.) We grabbed dinner and drinks at Levant beforehand to satisfy a long overdue falafel Friday craving.

My mom has been in town for the last month (visiting family in the area) since my brother’s wedding so we’ve been out and about exploring. Saturday we went to brunch and then casually popped into a bridal shop just for fun and we’re pretty sure my sister possibly accidentally picked out her wedding dress. Just like that. On the flipside, my mom bought me a cat mat for Weaz. This sums up our family dynamic perfectly.



I finally got Snapchat (again). I’ve downloaded and deleted it two or three times. I just don’t get it. Anyway, it’s there now. I’m katie_levans like everywhere else. I’ve only taken one picture.


That’s it from my thrilling life. Oh, except for this completely insane shot I got off the balcony last night. I’ll miss this view when we move this fall…

    Grape Nuts are my favorite cereal! I love them warmed up 🙂

      Yessss. I haven’t had Grape Nuts probably since college but now I need to get a box. I love them.

  2. In general I’m a five year old when it comes to cereal but that actually looks really good! I’ve done the same thing with snapchat. Back and forth, back and forth. I installed it again a few weeks ago and I’ve actually been using it. Mostly because I followed a few people that post a lot. I will stalk you there (mandylulou). That balcony picture is amazing. I love when the sun shines through the clouds like that.

    Sadly frosted mini wheats are not even vegetarian (gelatin) 🙁

      Gross. All the more reason to eat the dry unsweetened old people kind. 🙂

      Just out the apartment! Probably. My lease is up in October and we want to get a house…

  5. Plain old original Cheerios for life!! The only cereal I eat, with the exception of a roughly once-a-year Cinnamon Toast Crunch bender. What is it about that stuff?

    • Katie Katie

      CTC for life!

    You need to try the Kashi Island Vanilla Whole Wheat Biscuits (it’s vegan…I checked for you). It will change your old people cereal game for real.

    • Katie Katie

      I think I’ve had these and you are correct! So good.

  7. You’re not alone! Every single day for breakfast my hubby eats greek yogurt mixed with fresh fruit, topped with grape nuts and chief seeds. I like the trader joes little bran stick cereal…can’t recall the name. Not bad!
