Grandma Cereal


One of the perks about moving is that I have more free time in the morning.  I can sleep in 30 minutes later and eat breakfast before leaving the house. 

I was talking to a coworker this morning about my "grandma cereal" and he asked me why I called it that.  So, I thought I'd tell ya'll the story as well.

When my brother and I were little, we used to spend the night at my grandma's house every now and then.  The next morning we'd have cereal.  My grandma always had kid friendly cereal at her house, but she also had Cracklin' OatBran as well.  The Cracklin' OatBran was her cereal.  I tried it once and it was all over from then.  I loved her cereal.  It's been my favorite ever since and it reminds me of her whenever I see it.  So of course when I figured out that I'd have more free time and actually have the time to eat breakfast before leaving the house....I had to go get a box of Cracklin' OatBran! 

I hope my grandma realizes how much I love her & think about her... and how much I love her cereal, too!

Hahahaha! The same thing happened to me... I always ate my grandparents' Mueslix and Raisin Bran and they're still 2 of my favs :) I bet you're loving all the free time you've gained not having a haul of a commute!

This story was so cute! It's awesome that you have that kind of connection with your grandma, even if it is "just" cereal.

Thanks for stopping by Taylor Made Home and commenting on Jordan's amazing office space. I think she totally rocked it!
