He Had Been Listening

by Courtney on January 29, 2012

Well I don’t know about you, but my Sunday has gotten off to a great start!

I woke up at a pretty decent hour and decided to just get my workout in for the day. I took yesterday as a rest day, so I was ready to get back in action this morning. Plus, if I dilly dally around in the mornings, it tends to be more difficult for me to get motivated to move.

But, since I was on my game, I got right to work with today’s workout:

Strength training + cardio = Awesome.

*****

Post-workout, I came back upstairs where I greeted by my lovely hubby who was just getting ready to make me breakfast. Since today is the last day of Birthday Week before the big day tomorrow, I was really hoping to get in my favorite birthday week breakfast. Turns out, he had been listening to me and was already getting prepared to fulfill my request…

Blueberry Pancakes!

Jay even told me that he added a “secret ingredient” which he was rather excited about, which turned out to be a sprinkle of cinnamon. Ooo baby, were they delicious, with the perfect amount of fresh blueberries in each one.

I topped ‘em off with some sugar-free maple syrup and ate them all along with my cup of coffee.

I really love pancakes. And I really, really love when Jay makes them for me.

Later today, I may end up heading off to the movies and/or running a few errands, but it’s still up in the air. However, one thing I definitely DO know will be happening later is getting a special birthday dessert. I’m already drooling over it.

Any guesses? Winking smile

I’m guessing something with chocolate – like chocolate lava cake? That’s what I would want! Or carrot cake.
