Not only has today included some delicious food, but it’s also been productive yet lazy, AND Irene turned out to be just what I expected…a whole lot of nothing. I’ll get to all of that eventually but first, let’s talk breakfast.
First we have omelets yesterday, and now pancakes today? Seriously, I love weekend breakfasts and wish we took the time to do them more often.
Since Jay cooked yesterday, I volunteered to make us a batch of my favorite fluffy pancakes. He’s pretty easy to please with them just plain, but I decided to go a little crazy and ended up making some caramelized bananas and almonds to put on top.
Call me crazy, but I’m tempted to say that these were even better than those amazing ones I got while in Vegas last year. YUM!
Once breakfast was finished and cleaned up, Jay and I got to work on a few things around the house. We hadn’t planned to leave the house at all today due to all the hype from Irene.
Fortunately for us, all she did around here was throw a few leaves around the yard and make a few of our plants look ugly.
It’s a good thing she knew not to mess with my lilies…we would have had words that Irene and I.
Considering we were going to be stuck in the house all day, I figured today would be a perfect day to try out a couple more pieces of my new Champion USA gear. With the way I fell head over heels for the first outfit that I wore while in Philly, I couldn’t wait to try out something else new.
Now, you guys already know that I love my cozies, and as it turns out, the awesome folks at Champion knew it too.
Top: Champion Eco Fleece Full-Zip Hoodie Jacket in Confetti Blue
The sweatshirt is super soft and cozy, and is made with up to 5% recycled polyester fibers. The fit of the sweatshirt is great; slightly form-fitting with sleeves long enough for me to pull over my hands, which is a totally awesome because this has been both a habit and a requirement of sweatshirts for me forever. I’m also loving the splash of color…it sure stands out amongst the rest of my grey sweatshirt collection.
Bottoms: Champion Favorite Cotton Jersey Women’s Capris in Granite Heather
Looks-wise, these capris really aren’t super flattering, but I’m definitely guilty of wearing a whole lot worse. Then again, I don’t know if cotton capris are really meant to be super flattering, are they?
To me, the sign of a good, comfy capri pant is one that fits just right at the waist, preferably with a waistband that can be folded over. These Champion capris deliver just that, along with a tag-free, rib-knit waist.
They’re pretty awesome for lazy Sundays.
And again, let me assure you- if I was provided with a product that I didn’t totally love, I would tell you about it. Like I said before, I would never want to steer you guys in the wrong direction!
With all of the
running around being lazy we were doing this afternoon, I ended up doing a whole lot of snacking and not a whole lot of lunching. So by the time 4:30 rolled around, I was more than ready to to put together a real meal in the form of dinner.
A beast of all salad beasts, filled up with:
- romaine lettuce
- baby carrots
- goat cheese
- MorningStar Farms veggie burger, crumbled
- a couple crumbled tortilla chips
I think that this may have been one of the hardest meals I’ve had to photograph in a long time because it looked so gosh darn delicious and my tummy was screamin’ for some food.
Obviously, I hated it.
I seriously don’t know which was better…the pancakes or the salad?
Now, since dinner was finished early, I’m planning on spending the rest of the evening watching some Jersey Shore and the VMA’s, along with a nice warm mug of hot chocolate. (**FYI fellow Jersey Shore fans – tonight is a NEW episode!!)
Hope everyone else is having a great weekend and that wherever you are, Irene hasn’t had too much of an effect on you.
Questions for the Evening:
What do your “cozies” look like? Are they bright and cute, or tattered and totally worn in like most of mine?
What’s the best meal you’ve eaten this weekend?
