There is a constant battle that rages between my mind and my taste buds. Most mornings I choose to sleep in and have a quick cup of coffee rather than slaving away in the kitchen for any number of minutes that exceeds the 3.24 to make a coffee.
Don’t get me wrong I’m definitely a big breakfast advocate as long as it includes being able to sleep in and a hungry companion to consume everything right beside me (hello Public Holidays and Saturday mornings!)
I’m still recovering from the shock and awe I experienced a few weekends ago when the husband told me that my pancakes sucked… (first shock of the day)…then proceeded to make the BEST PANCAKES OF MY LIFE!! (They were seriously better than my mothers)….
I felt like I had just walked into an iHOP and they had had a pancake making competition and I sampled the winners pancakes (which just happened to be Jamie Oliver’s)..
then I was able to have a photo with him and he said something along the lines of “you wanna come over and cook a 15min meal together…okay too far..but you get the idea.... They were seriously incredible (in my defense though whenever I made pancakes I hit up the fastest and minimal-ingredient-needing recipe. I’m talking flour an egg and some milk…haha)
I’m yet to convince the husband, but here’s to hoping that he’ll whip up a few of those pancake beauties tomorrow morning!

…Followed by a trip to Ikea! We’re re-doing our entry way (by re-doing I mean, purchasing a new Console table/Bench because we think the current influx of bugs is somehow related to the wood structure near the door at the moment..I hope this works!). Tomorrow night I’m going to try my hand at making pretzels as well! This pretzel recipe makes it look so easy!
I hope you have a fantastic weekend and I’ll catch you on Monday!
Baby Bloomers I have been dying to make!
We are dishonest daily..
This moved me to tears.
I just recently discovered Madewell..I’m drooling over this dress!

Yesterday I was so devastated by the explosions that rocked the Boston Marathon.
I had only just spoken to someone on Monday morning (our time) about Greg trying to qualify for it in 2015 and then when I woke up the next day the reports came rolling in…
I can’t imagine the feeling if something like that ever happened to our family or friends, while they were cheering on a group of runners!
I hope these people are brought to justice.
In the meantime our sincere thoughts and prayers are with all those who have lost loved a one or may have lost the ability to ever walk or run again..
