National Pancake Day
Vacation. Ahh, it’s so nice, but you know what it does to a brain? Vacation shuts a brain down! I almost forgot all about the beloved blog! I ate pancakes this morning – after I ate Eggs Benedict, because it was on the menu and as I’ve explained in the past, I’m literally incapable of not ordering it. Since we went to Elmer’s, I was going to go with my girl Crystal’s suggestion and order the cinnamon roll pancakes until I saw the Eggs Benedict and remembered that protein is a much better choice over a sugary breakfast to begin the day. I did, however, still need to eat pancakes today so I went with a small side of the blueberry pancakes that Courtney and I could share.
So, how did I spend my first day of vacation? I didn’t sleep in. That’s for sure. Apparently I don’t know how to sleep in thanks to that adorable little boy of mine who likes to wake up between the hours of 5 and 6 am on a daily basis. Obviously I ate a delicious breakfast and then we spent several hours poolside at our hotel, the incredibly colorful Saguaro. As any good girls’ getaway goes, day drinking ensued and as a result, no drinks were consumed after sunset and we were home in time to watch the final 15 minutes of the first presidential debate. We’re so old! We also ate a plethora of awesome snacks today and my favorite by far were the Coachella Valley Dates at our hotel. They were stuffed with blue cheese and then wrapped in bacon. And they were to die for. Yum!
Tomorrow’s adventures in vacation will include more time at the pool as well as a hike through Joshua Tree National Park. Tomorrow is also National Chocolate Milk Day so I planned ahead and packed my own. Oh yeah, better believe it!
