Good Morning and Happy Monday to you!
I had a pretty relaxing weekend, how about you guys? Nothing too crazy happened except for I watched a lot of Breaking Bad. I have to admit I have been a blog slacker lately, and I am blaming it on my new obsession with that show! My husband and I are catching up on Netflix and we are on Season 3! We watch at least one episode per night (sometimes up to 3 or 4!) so if I miss a day of blogging that is why! We have the new seasons on DVR for when we are all caught up.
1. Because of my new obsession I saw this fun game on a “Blood Sweat and Cheers”. What a great way to spend a Sunday night….I could have some really sweaty, or drunk nights if I played this throughout all the seasons on Netflix 😉
2. My sister-in-law just announced recently that her and my brother are expecting their first child!! Yay, I am going to be an aunt!

I get an itchy rash type thing on my legs, and it is usually after I shave. The dermatologist has classified it as “folliculitis- or inflammation of the hair follicle. This has been going on for years and I always have to buy expensive lotions, only use disposable razors a couple of times and get shaving cream for sensitive skin.
The most recent product I have tried and LOVE is the Ava Anderson hand and body lotion. This stuff is the bomb!
The ingredients are awesome too. Here are some of them: organic aloe vera gel, organic coconut oil, organic shea butter, sweet almond oil, etc etc.
I hope you try some of these fun finds 🙂
Do you watch Breaking Bad?
Good Morning! Happy Friday!
If you follow me on Instagram you have probably noticed the past couple morning I have hit the repeat button. I’m sorry to be so boring, but Wednesday and Thursday I had pancakes for breakfast. These weren’t your average pancakes though. These were amazing protein pancakes with a twist!
You have probably seen my blueberry protein pancakes before, (because I eat them at least once a week) and sometimes I even eat them in the car! Who eats pancakes in the car seriously? Only me, I guess.
Instead of just protein powder and egg whites I decided to add a little bit more substance to these pancakes and it worked! It kept me full for about 4 hours. That is a long time for me.
Here are the recipes: Both turned out well!
Blueberry Double Protein Pancake:
Double the Protein, Double the Fun. Protein= Oats, Cottage Cheese, Protein Powder! POW!
The first batch I made went like this:
- 1/4 cup oats
- 3 egg whites
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese
- 1 scoop protein powder
** Mix in a blender until smooth. Pour batter into skillet and flip away! Top with syrup and more blueberries 🙂
- 2 tbsp oats
- 3 egg whites
- 1/4 cup cottage cheese
- 1 scoop protein powder
- splash almond milk
** Same Directions as above. Topped with crushed walnuts and a few blackberries.
You need to try this protein packed breakfast asap.
You could also top these with melted Nikki’s Coconut Butter! That will happen 🙂
