Happy Friday morning! Doesn’t coffee just taste better on Fridays?
Yesterday was a funny kind of day. After I got home from work, my front door opened to a number of visitors.
-Dan’s mom, step-dad, aunt, and grandma were here to watch Ina for the day. Yes, it does take 4 adults.
-My sister, nephew, and niece stopped by on their way home from the nearby pumpkin patch
-Papa Dan dropped in to give Ina a (too-cute) Halloween outfit from Grandma Frankie
-My dad didn’t want to miss the opportunity to see 3 grandkids
-My friend Sarah came to say goodbye before she heads back to North Carolina. Sad.
-My friend/neighbor Kim walked over to give us some homemade relish.
Eleven guests in a few hours! It was kind of like we had a party that we didn’t plan. I decided I prefer that kind of party, it requires much less cleaning.
Apparently all of those visitors wore us out, because we were in bed by 8. Hashtag cool parents.
Yesterday, I also continued the fall theme over here with a beautiful morning run with Kim.
It has been some time since I have seen 6 miles and it felt soooo good.
After the run, I had about 30 minutes to shower, get ready, and make breakfast, so I did the most logical thing and made my girl Leila’s protein pumpkin pancakes.
I love protein pancakes not only for breakfast, but also as a convenient, portable, healthy, and filling afternoon snack. Adding pumpkin to them pretty much completed me.
So, who’s coming over tonight? Wait, don’t tell me, so I don’t have to clean.
