Describe your perfect date:
That’s a tough one. I’d have to say September 13th. Becuase it’s not too hot and not too cold. All you need is a light jacket.
If you’re wondering where you’ve sorta heard that from…Miss Congeniality (or just so you don’t think I’m weirder than usual).
When I walked outside this morning, I had the instant goosebumps. I had to run back inside and grab a light jacket. It was 61 degrees and that may not seem cold to some of you, but compared to the upper 90 degree weather we’ve been having, it was chilly. My body isn’t used to it yet, but I’m loving every second of it. Soon, I’ll be transitioning to jeans, leggings, and scarves full-time.
The air conditioner was officially shut off this morning, and the windows have returned to open duty!
Last night, I skipped the nap and went over to a friends to sit around the fire. I came home smelling like a bonfire and it put me in a great mood. Now, you’re probably sick of me talking about fall, but I can’t help it; I’m just so ready for it!
Pumpkin, Plaid, Bon Fires, Booties, Scarves, Leaves, and Football…Oh My!
After church this morning, (and yes, I wore my new flannel dress…without the tights) I made some flour-less banana egg protein pancakes with blueberries. I make the banana-egg pancakes a lot, but sometimes I like to add a little extra protein powder for a vanilla flavor and a fluffier cake.
This pancake had: 2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder (use your favorite), 1 whole egg, 3 egg whites, 1 large extra-ripe banana, and 1/2 cup blueberries.
Mash and stir all ingredients together (minus the blueberries).
I heated a pan to medium and sprayed it with a little cooking spray. I poured about 1/4 of the batter into the pan and sprinkled it with blueberries. I just cooked it up like a normal pancake.
This recipe makes five, 1/4 cup sized pancakes.
I made one of the pancakes 1/2 cup in size.
Some people have been requesting nutrition for the recipes!

What are you guys doing on this gorgeous Sunday? I’m sewing together some gorgeous placemats for my shop!
The gorgeous handmade plate featured in my post was made by Kris Uehling Pottery. I spent a lot of time at her house while growing up in Iowa. I was good friends with her daughter and I used to love going through all her pottery! She’s extremely talented! She made these for me about four years ago and they game in different colors with matching dipping bowls.
