Favorite Finds Friday 11.9.12 [Pancake Edition]

I can’t help it, I have a nagging sweet tooth in the morning and I hard-core heart pancakes.  Sweet and fluffy.  Dense and filling.  Hearty and healthy.  They keep my belly full until lunch and they never get boring.  I can pile on the toppings and if I get a little heavy-handed, I can put them in a bowl and have a pancake boat.  Oh yes, that happened 😉

So with all that in mind, I thought it would be fun to have a Favorite Finds all things PANCAKE post!  Surprise, surprise…

Sweating Pink // Favorite Finds Friday 11.2.12

Yesterday I received the best afternoon pick-me-up, better than a Starbucks cappuccino or a chunk of dark chocolate…

I am so excited and feel so blessed to have the opportunity to join a group of strong, inspiring, and motivated women!  As seen on the Fit Approach website, “Sweat Pink Ambassadors live the Fit Approach mission every day: they sweat hard, play hard, and inspire those around them to achieve their best selves.”

All of my excitement powered me through 1 + 1/2 TNT sessions last night.  Ryan was late because he had to get an MRI that took longer than expected, so I happily stayed behind with him to make-up what he had missed.  By the time we got home I was ravenous and raided the kitchen, snacking while I threw together the epitome of a kitchen sink salad.

veggies + TJ’s chicken & veggie dumplings

I also had an unpictured bowl of chicken noodle soup and rice cakes topped with cottage cheese [hunger > pictures].  I could not be stopped and finished off the night with a sweet cereal yogurt bowl for dessert.

Surprise, surprise, this morning I served up a stack of cereal pancakes.  Today’s cereal of choice: TJ’s Honey Nut O’s!

honey nut pancakes topped with plain Chobani + unsweetened coconut + pistachios + honey

P.S.  While I was busy packing Ryan’s and my lunches for today, Charlie was also busy…  He ate the peanut butter filling and left me the pretzel shell, he’s so kind 😉

“It often seems, looking back, that the unexpected comes to define us, the paths we didn’t see coming and may have wandered down by mistake. The older we get the more willing we are to follow those, to surprise ourselves.”

Favorite Finds Friday 10.26.12

Do y’all watch the news?  I watch the Today Show every morning while I’m eating breakfast, but this week I’ve had no desire to tune in.  Why?  Because every other segment Al Roker [I have nothing against him, he’s just doing his job] has an update about Hurricane Sandy.  If you haven’t heard, Hurricane Sandy is supposed to be a big bully storm that may bash the mid-Atlantic and Northeast Sunday into early next week.  You can read more about it here.

BUT, there are two different models and they’re predicting two different paths…  I’m in favor of whichever one says that Sandy is going to stay out to sea.  I’d like to go to Kings Dominion on Sunday and I’d like for our power to stay on *fingers crossed*!

Question:  If you’re on the east coast, are you preparing for Hurricane Sandy?

Question:  What are your fun weekend plans?  I’m celebrating my birthday dinner tomorrow and *hopefully* going to Kings Dominion on Sunday!  Lots of fun times with friends!
