Pancakes and Pedicures

This morning has been the opposite of most Sunday mornings… It’s been productive.

Being the “driver” that he is, Ryan had us over at our old apartment doing the dreaded final clean by 8:30 a.m.


Before we left to vacuum, scrub, polish and sweep, I made us a filling breakfast of apple cinnamon pancakes to sustain us through the clean.

Pancake Mix

I used the Farmgirl pancake mix that I gave to Ryan in his Valentine’s Day foodie basket.

After topping the ‘cakes with syrup and eating every last one, we headed over to the old pad to get crackin’ on cleaning.

Pancakes + Syrup

We cleaned for a few hours which was miserable totally great.

Mid-Morning Snack

I had an appointment with my friend Merri to get a pedicure in the early afternoon, and fortunately we were done cleaning about 20 minutes before my appointment.

I grabbed a yummy snack before heading out the door to meet Merri.

I made a berry barley bowl with barley, Greek yogurt and thawed frozen strawberries.

Whenever I get a pedicure I always think I’m going to go in and pick a new, funky color.

For my last pedicure in January I picked a dark purple to be wintery. It looked almost black and I felt quite goth.

Back in September, I picked what I thought was a hot pink color for my toes before we left on a cruise with our friends. In the sunlight it ended up looking orange. Ick!

Today, I figured I’d select a nice, safe color, which, for me, is always some shade of pink. 😀

After seeing the color Merri selected, I instantly put my darker pink color back on the shelf and decided to go with the same color she picked. We now have matching toes. 😉


I got home and did the “don’t step on my toes, dance around the puppy” dance to make sure Sadie didn’t step on my feet and ruin my fresh pedicure.

I don’t want to jinx myself, but the “dance” has, so far, proven successful and my toes are in tact. 😉


Plans for the rest of the day include unpacking (are you sick of hearing about moving yet!?) and running to the grocery store and Marshall’s to return shoes and pick up some necessities for the new apartment. You know I’ll be spending in inordinate amount of time in the specialty foods aisle as well… 😉

What are you doing on this fine Sunday?

Please share! I love reading about what you guys are up to!

  1. Your toes look great! I would much rather be unpacking and organizing- I love to do that stuff! Instead I’m doing school work. But in a few hours, I’ll stop and start doing some prep cooking for the week. That’s when I’ll get to relax.

    Enjoy your new place! It’s always so much fun to move!

  14. Pedicures or foot soaks always make my day! I picked some funky blues and greens this winter, since only my yoga friends see my feet in the winter! It’s pouring rain and nasty and cold outside. I managed a quick swim and yoga sesh this morning and have been cooped up this afternoon watching B-ball and now New Moon 🙂 Happy Sunday!

    Then i got some sun by the pool…starting cooking and then took a nap once i had everything in the crock pot!

    its been marvelous!

  17. Pretty pedi!

    I always tend to pick a darker berry color, so in the summer I try to pick something more bright. Sometimes it ends up a bit too dayglow 🙂
