This morning I woke up ready to seize the day. I feel like I have been in a bit of a funk lately with being so tired and lacking energy. I haven't been the wife that I should be and I know I am more then entitled to take it easy these days, however, it's important that I not put my marriage on the back burner for the next 8 months. When I'm not feeling well, I tend to throw a giant pity party and that doesn't accomplish anything except make myself and those around me miserable.
Ever since I became a mom, I'm unable to sleep in once Emersyn is awake. Even when Brett gets up with her, I still have trouble falling back asleep. Brett, however, does not suffer from this same phenomenon. So this morning I decided to get up when Emersyn started playing with her GloWorm, her morning ritual (she presses it like ten times before she calls us to come get her, ha!). I got Ems out of bed, changed her diaper, put some boots on over her jammies and we headed to the store for some roast ingredients and breakfast ingredients.
I made eggs with peppers and onions, bacon and pancakes from scratch! The recipe is just too yummy not to share for the pancakes but I can't take credit for it....my BFF's husband makes them and I'm not sure where he got the recipe from.
