Times Two

Well, I guess that was inevitable.

Henry’s sick; I’m sick; it’s only a matter of time before the Husband, Maggie, James, and Pippa get sick, too. 


I’m stepping away from the keyboard to try to recoup.  I’ve got no time for sickness.


Until then…


Bagel French Toast with stir-fried strawberries, almonds, brown rice syrup


Everything is better is bagel format.


A fun question:  Who do you think will win X-Factor tonight?  I’m LOVIN’ Fifth Harmony. 


I think Carly Rose and Tate Stevens peaked too soon.

    Feel better!

  • lisa fine December 20, 2012, 9:28 am

    Oh no. That stinks. I work with kids and seem to get every cold that goes around. 🙁 Boo.

    And I’ve never tried brown syrup on pancakes; I stick to local honey or maple syrup. Yum!

  • Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries December 20, 2012, 9:29 am

    Oh no, I’m sorry to hear that you are sick now too! I’m sure trying to care for a sick baby AND yourself is no fun at all. Rest up, pound those vitamins, and down the water! On a positive note, your bagel French toast looks delicious!!

  • Natalie @ Free Range Human December 20, 2012, 9:35 am

    Oh gosh! That’s terrible! Good luck.

  • Kristen L December 20, 2012, 10:08 am

    Hope you feel better soon! Rest up today.

  • Reenie December 20, 2012, 10:13 am

    Stay in your jammies and get some rest Caitlin.

    That pic of the Pipster is soooo cute!! 🙂

  • Sarah @ Yogi in Action December 20, 2012, 10:16 am

    Wow- almost everyone I know seems to be sick this week. Hope you guys start feeling better!

  • Allison W. December 20, 2012, 10:28 am

    You seem to use a lot of brown rice syrup. I remember hearing about high levels of arsenic found in organic brown rice syrup, is that something you’re concerned about?

    • Caitlin December 20, 2012, 2:03 pm

      Not really….

    • Susan December 20, 2012, 2:48 pm

      I’ve also read about the high arsenic levels in brown rice syrup, brown rice and white rice products. I would especially be concerned if I were breast-feeding!

  • Karen @ Run Shop Travel December 20, 2012, 10:30 am

    OMG upside down kitties are the BEST! Pippa is adorb!

  • Alexandra December 20, 2012, 10:33 am

    That is my close friends Ally’s group! Go Fifth Harmony!

  • Sarah December 20, 2012, 10:41 am

    Carly will definitely win tonight!

  • Nicole @ livingthesweetlifestl.wordpress.com December 20, 2012, 11:06 am

    Feel better soon! That breakfast looks so good.

  • Lorelai December 20, 2012, 11:10 am

    Pippa is such a beauty!!!

    Hope you all feel better soon! 🙁

  • Katie @ Soulshine and Sassafras December 20, 2012, 11:11 am

    Aw, I’m sorry 🙁 I can’t believe you were able to cook an awesome breakfast while sick with a sick baby though! Damn, supermom!

  • Kelsie December 20, 2012, 11:19 am

    Wow! Crazy… My animals have never gotten sick from me… Is that even possible?

    • Caitlin December 20, 2012, 2:02 pm

      I don’t think so 🙂

  • Tracey December 20, 2012, 12:01 pm

    I always say that mommies get sick when their babies do so they know exactly how their babies feel. 🙁
    Feel better soon!

  • Lauren December 20, 2012, 12:04 pm

    Feel better girl! You are right, now is NOT the time to be sick. Praying for a speedy recovery. 🙂

  • Jenn December 20, 2012, 12:14 pm

    I hope you all feel better very soon! And…where do you get brown rice syrup?

    • Caitlin December 20, 2012, 2:02 pm

      Whole foods!

  • Sophie @ threetimesf December 20, 2012, 12:16 pm

    Heard so many ood things about Fifth Harmony – definitely need to check them out 🙂

  • Lisa December 20, 2012, 12:17 pm

    Your kitty is so cute! What a great pose!

  • Stellina @ My Yogurt Addiction.com December 20, 2012, 12:42 pm

    Get well soon 🙂

  • tracy December 20, 2012, 1:13 pm

    Love 5th Harmony!! They are adorable!! I would like them to win or Carly Rose…not a big Tate fan.

  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles December 20, 2012, 1:24 pm

    Ugh, hopefully the sickness doesn’t go past you and Henry! It’d be awful to have an entire sick household.

  • Gillian December 20, 2012, 2:56 pm

    Love Carly Rose… but you are right, I think she peaked too soon. The 5th Harmony girls are just so sweet, with so much personality… I hope they win tonight 🙂

  • Sara @ fitcupcaker December 20, 2012, 3:07 pm

    I love Carly Rose! Shes so cute! Bagel french toast, yum!

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More December 20, 2012, 3:55 pm

    Oh no! Get some rest and feel better! At least your breakfast looks insanely delicious! 😉

  • Kerin December 20, 2012, 5:18 pm

    I just scrolled up and down my screen five times looking at that food. Hello pregnancy craving! It’s simple but sounds so delicious right now.

    Feel better!!

  • Abby December 20, 2012, 6:43 pm

    This may sound crazy but my grandmother always had us put eucalyptus essential oil on the bottoms of out feet before bed when we were super congested and I swear it always helped dry up the mucous.

  • Jessica December 20, 2012, 8:17 pm

    I use brown rice syrup. whatevs. so re: you getting sick it is pretty inevitable as poor henry is sick then you didn’t sleep good >>>low immune system>>>down for the count. Get better soon!

  • Amber K December 20, 2012, 9:08 pm

    Feel better soon! Being sick on Christmas is no fun. I’ve done it far too many times. Get some rest!

  • Jen December 21, 2012, 6:47 am

    I haven’t been watching the show…so, what’s Britney Spears like? Do tell! Do you eat gluten-free bagels? Yay or nay?

  • Lara December 21, 2012, 10:14 am

    Sending you healing thoughts. Hopefully your hubs has some tricks up his sleeve to have you feeling better in no time!

  • Alexa December 21, 2012, 7:41 pm

    What kind of gluten free bagels did you use??
