Favorite Finds: Guest Posting

Thank goodness it’s Friday [TGIF] AND thank goodness for pancakes [TGFP]!

This week has been a bit of a doozy.  I’m betting it’s from the lack of sleep I’ve had and today I woke up in a funk for no real reason.  Note to self: knock it off.  Don’t worry, be happy!


I have no problem falling asleep at 9PM but staying asleep isn’t as easy.  The past few mornings I’ve been waking up at 5AM or earlier which gives me plentyyy of time to clean-up around our [itty-bitty] apartment, pack lunch for both Ryan and me, make a sweet stack of ‘cakes, and get ready for work.  I know that not everyone is a morning person [ahem, Ryan], but I feel most productive in the mornings and it works for me…  And after a day at work, all I wanna do is be with my boys, curl up on the couch, get caught up in some silly show, and spend as little time as possible in the kitchen.  To each his own!

this mornings stack was sundae style: cinnamon flax pancakes topped with peanut butter Cho + fresh cranberries + banana slices + shredded unsweetened coconut + maple syrup

In typical Friday fashion, I have put together a Favorite Finds Friday post but you’ll see that it’s not below…  That’s because I have the honor and pleasure of guest posting for Danica at Danica’s Daily while she and her hubby are vacationing down in Jamaica!  I’m a bit envious, mon!

Ryan and I have some fun plans for tomorrow in honor of his birthday next week and possibly seeing the new Twilight movie on Sunday…  I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend :)

Whatcha Think?

  1. have a good weekend! 😀

  2. Oh girl I’m definitely feeling you on the sleep deprivation… I can never sleep in, and I don’t usually mind when I get to bed at a decent hour, but lately I’ve been getting to bed at 1 and waking up at 6 and it’s definitely starting to catch up with me. Hope you’re able to get some rest soon!

  3. mmm your pancakes always look outstanding!!

    also I love your pinterest boards! I dont use pinterest (only sometimes browse my friends’ boards), but I know that when I have a wedding some day…or my own house and need to decorate…it may totally come in handy!

    • Thanks! And I obviously love Pinterest but have used it less since our wedding… I still enjoy looking at the recipes but bet I’ll use it more again when we’re looking to move or when we have children :)
