Hey La, Hey La, My Boyfriend’s Back!

I’m SO excited because Ryan returns today! He’s been hiking the Appalachian Trail with two friends since Saturday and I can’t wait to see him.

welcome home

Welcome Home Signs for Ryan

He made me promise not to mention that he was gone on this blog for fear that someone would know he wasn’t at our apartment and abduct me. πŸ™‚ NowΒ  that he’s en route for Orlando (currently taking a pit stop at McDonald’s for hot cakes and hot chocolate), I am anxious for this work day to be over so I can give my fiance a big ol’ hug. I’m sure Sadie will beat me to the kisses though…

Elevator Talk

I never know what to expect when I’m riding up the elevator to my office in the morning. People often just sigh and play with their coffee cups or make some comment about the weather (it’s hot… always hot).

I love when I get to ride with a true character. Today a red-faced man stepped in after me, dressed all spiffy in a pin-stripe suit. He turned to me and shook his head saying, “I’m gonna have to get angry and make some people cry today.”

Well now that was unexpected. I gave him the obligatory “Aw, that’s too bad,” and wished him luck in his tear-filled day.


My pumpkin obsession lives on! Today I was feelin’ pancakes so I cooked up pumpkin protein pancakes for a little fall flava.


Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

The mix of the pumpkin, cinnamon protein powder and egg whites created flavorful lil ‘cakes.


Yummy, Yummy

These pancakes are delicious and full of satiating protein. This entire batch had a little less than 200 calories (before the syrup) and almost 35 grams of protein. Not too shabby!

When I typically eat the big, fluffy pancakes made with white flour or pancake mix I often end up feeling sleepy and overly stuffed afterward. These pancakes are filling but do not induce food cramps! πŸ™‚

Question: What’s your favorite way to eat pancakes?

    I just saw you last post- I almost decided to get married at the Vinoy, but then went to Amelia Island the next weekend and decided to do it there! Small world. I’ve been to 2 weddings at the Don CeSar and they have been pretty. You’ll have to keep us updated on your progress!

    That’s kind of weird that the guy in the elevator would randomly say that…right? Do you think he was going to be firing people today?

    I love to eat pancakes with berries heated up in the microwave with a little sugar or stevia sprinkled on them…yum! πŸ™‚

    • yeah that’s what i thought – except he said he’d “have to get angry” – hopefully someone just made a mistake but won’t lose their job! 😦
