First, thank you all for your supportive messages yesterday! I can’t express how much I appreciate your support and hearing your stories about how you’ve found or are still finding your right fit. Change is not always a bad thing. It can be scary and overwhelming, but some of the greatest things in life wouldn’t happen if it wasn’t for change. I was nervous to share my story because I wasn’t sure how others would respond, but I know what I need to do and I’m confident about my future plans.
The past couple of days I’ve had a pounding headache that comes and goes and nothing seems to make it go away. This morning I woke up absurdly early (the current trend is waking up at 2:30 – 3:30 a.m.) so I took advantage of the time to whip up a new pancake recipe (egg-free becuase we desperately need groceries) and catch up on our DVR… I think I’ve developed a new obsession with the TV show Scandal. Kerry Washington, the lead actress, was a great commencement speaker at The George Washington University’s ceremony this past spring, but she’s an even better actress.
1. In a bowl, add all of the ingredients and whisk until there are no clumps in the batter.
2. Spray a medium-sized skillet with non-stick cooking spray and place over medium heat.
3. For each pancake, spoon 2 generous tablespoons of batter into the pan. Cook each pancake until a few bubbles form and burst, approximately 1 to 2 minutes.
4. Flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 more minutes.
5. Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
As part of the Octoblog Challenge, I scrolled through my past posts and realized that I haven’t done a “Favorite Finds” post since April?! I haven’t met one person that doesn’t like Pinterest (other than men who don’t understand all of the hype), so I think it’s about time for me to get back to my weekly posting routine and share some of my latest pins!

Tonight Ryan and I have a “fun date” to a local emergency care center so I can get a TB skin test because I need one for substitute orientation next week. Did you know that there’s a nationwide shortage of TB skin tests? I called over a dozen centers before I found one, phew!
