Thursday Already

in All Posts

Morning.  Can you believe it’s Thursday?  I feel like this week has flown by.


Are you a pancake person or a waffle person?  I am definitely a pancake person, but they seem so much more involved and messy than waffles.  So I usually end up making waffles.  Not that waffles are something to complain about…

A random thing that made my morning: a mini tea top.  My mother gave the Husband this teapot for his birthday, and it’s so fun.  Much like waffles v. pancakes, making a giant pot is better (um, more caffeine), but the little pot seems easier to clean.  Plus, it’s a little teapot.  <—Awesome.


Just wanted to say thank you for the comments on my last post.  All the comments were very honest and real, and I really appreciate people sharing how their upbringing impacted their body image.  Thank you, thank you!

    I am more of a waffel person although I rarely ever have them! I typically have yogurt or eggs, way easier in my mind! 🙂

  • Katie D. June 7, 2012, 8:23 am

    I love Cool Runnings! And that quote – seems like the first time I’ve heard/read it! What a great one!

  • Liza June 7, 2012, 8:39 am

    You look so great at 9 months preggo! So healthy and almost glowing (in your post from yesterday). 🙂

  • Samantha Angela June 7, 2012, 8:42 am

    Little tea pots are perfect for the office, I think. Then you don’t end up drinking a whole pot for one person.

  • Claire @ Live and Love to Eat June 7, 2012, 8:48 am

    Had blueberry pancakes for dinner last night. 🙂

  • Sana June 7, 2012, 8:52 am

    I feel like you are just sitting around and waiting for the baby to come, how do you get anything done???

  • Morgan @ Life After Bagels June 7, 2012, 8:54 am


    My dad used to make them for us every sunday and he would throw them up in the air with the flipper and we would have to catch them with our plates …. thus they were called flying pancakes 😛

  • Katie @ Peace Love and Oats June 7, 2012, 8:59 am

    Definitely a pancake person, waffles always seem too dry to me !

  • Faith @ For the Health of It June 7, 2012, 9:03 am

    DEFINITELY a pancake person. I bought a waffle maker last black Friday and still havent even taken it out of the box! Whoops…

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat June 7, 2012, 9:22 am

    I’m definitely more of a waffler person. Yours always look so delicious!! And I love the movie Cool Runnings. Thanks for the throwback!

  • Nicole June 7, 2012, 9:23 am

    COOL RUNNINGS!! YES!! What a wonderful quote from one of my favorite movies.

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed June 7, 2012, 9:33 am

    Thursday already = tomorrow is Friday! YAY, I’m ready to do the Friday dance 😀

  • Dee June 7, 2012, 9:43 am

    what a cute tea pot! 🙂

    i. love. that. movie. #winning. 😀

  • Elisabeth June 7, 2012, 9:53 am

    Love that quote! Oh, and I definitely prefer making waffles over pancakes, but I like eating both 😉

  • Laura June 7, 2012, 10:01 am

    Mmmm I’m a pancake person but this is only because I don’t have a waffle maker! I do love waffles too! And with blueberries…I’ll melt or something!!

  • Jenny June 7, 2012, 10:09 am

    Cool Runnings was mine (me?) and my brother’s favorite movie when we were little. We were allowed to rent one movie every Friday night and we got that one at least twice a month! We would build a bobsled out of couch cushions while we watched–hilarious! Have a wonderful day 🙂

  • Presley (@runpretty) June 7, 2012, 10:11 am

    Cool Runnings was my favorite movie when I was growing up. I think I ruined the VHS by watching it over and over. Heck, I still love that movie.

  • Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries June 7, 2012, 10:33 am

    i used to always say i was a waffle girl, but i’ve been loving pancakes lately!

  • Lindsey June 7, 2012, 10:58 am

    I am more of a pancake person mainly since waffles are more of a pain to make. But my husband LOVES waffles so I make them often too.

  • jameil June 7, 2012, 11:08 am

    Neither. I don’t like a lot of sugar in the morning. I eat pancakes/waffles/french toast maybe once a quarter. Max. I’m quite sure I’ve gone over a year without pancakes or waffles. I used to think I hated waffles until I went to Belgium. Nope. I hated frozen waffles. Those waffles on the street??? SWEET LORD!!!!! There’s a reason Belgian waffles are famous!! I’m happiest with a savory breakfast. Eggs are a necessity & I could eat them daily in their many applications but over medium is my favorite. Bacon (pork only) or sausage (links or patties, pork, turkey & veg all make me happy), toast and either grits or hashbrowns. I’m getting hungry & happy just thinking of it! I could really talk about breakfast ALL DAY!

  • Moni Meals June 7, 2012, 11:30 am

    I too am also a pancake person. But a waffle made right can change that. 🙂 I agree fastest week ever!

  • Laura @ She Eats Well June 7, 2012, 11:57 am

    OMG Cool Runnings. LOVE. I was obsessed with that movie back in the day. That one…and The Mighty Ducks! 🙂

  • Beth June 7, 2012, 11:59 am

    I definitely love pancakes and usually eat them every single weekend. It’s a great way to start my Saturday morning!

  • Laura is Undeterrable June 7, 2012, 12:06 pm

    Waffles waffles waffles! I’m not a fan of pancakes.

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin June 7, 2012, 12:11 pm

    I’m more of a pancake person – but only because I don’t have a waffle maker! I’ve been thinking about stealing my parents’ one though. 😛

  • Alex June 7, 2012, 1:55 pm

    Pittsburgh is in the 70s and sunny today and I sure did eat lunch outside 🙂

  • Vanessa (@IsleStyleLiving) June 7, 2012, 2:34 pm


    But if I had a waffle maker I would probably make waffles.

    My favorite is to defrost frozen strawberries in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning I had the liquid from the strawberries to the pancake batter. Top all pancakes with strawberries- YUMMERS!

    I used to cook the strawberries in the pancake but realized I didn’t like them cooked.

  • Amber K June 7, 2012, 2:46 pm

    I am totally a pancake person, much better texture!

  • Julia H. @ Going Gulia June 7, 2012, 3:35 pm

    Are those frozen waffles or ones made in a waffle maker? I’m guessing waffle maker since you mentioned that they take a while to clean up….so annoying trying to clean out all those little squares! To me, pancakes are easier to cook than waffles for that very reason–I don’t want to have to clean the waffle maker 🙂

  • Caroline Leigh June 7, 2012, 3:50 pm

    I LOVE COOL RUNNINGS!! does the husband know and appreciate that movie?

  • Kelly June 7, 2012, 5:11 pm

    I am definitely more of a waffle person but it isn’t like I would ever turn down pancakes! Ha!

  • Christina June 7, 2012, 6:26 pm

    I cant believe you quoted Cool Runnings. Awesome.

  • Sam @ Fit for My Fork June 8, 2012, 3:21 pm

    I prefer waffles to pancakes, but it’s hard to make waffles without a waffle iron, so pancakes it is!
    I LOVE Cool Runnings, and I’m from Calgary, so it has a very special place in my heart 🙂 Thank you for posting that today!

  • AmandaonMaui June 8, 2012, 4:51 pm

    We do pancakes around here. I grew up with my dad being the pancake king. Most Sunday mornings he would get up early and make everyone pancakes before church. I loved those days. I miss those days sometimes. I remember him teaching me how to spot when to flip the pancakes. He showed me how to turn them. I learned what the batter should look like. I learned how to keep them warm while waiting on the rest to finish cooking. Now, I make killer pancakes (even if they’re gluten free).

    I do like a good waffle, and I miss waffles a bit. I haven’t had a non-freezer waffle in a long time. I have a hard time justifying buying a waffle iron since it is a one use tool. I try to only have kitchen tools that can multitask. I might break down and buy a waffle iron someday though.

  • Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See June 8, 2012, 6:59 pm

    I’m totally a pancake person! Aside from loving them in general, I feel like they’re easier to make? Haha that could just be crazy old me 😉
