Hello friends and hello Friday!! Anyone else feel like they have been waiting on today since Monday? Or is that basically every week? It's not the the weekdays are all that bad, it's just that I look forward to the weekends when my hubby is home and we can hang out as a family and take a little break from work! One of my absolute favorite weekend traditions is cooking a big breakfast for the family! Usually at least one day that means pancakes are going to happen! My easy sheet pan pancakes are going to be your new favorite way to fix the most perfect pancakes without fail!

There is a cool front that has rolled through town this week and I couldn't be more excited about crisp mornings and the ability to leave my windows open all day. This has to be my favorite time of year because I get to break out my cozy sweaters, the holidays aren't far away, and an afternoon cup of coffee is always welcomed. Because I work from home, I am not always able to get to a coffee shop when I want the perfect latte, so luckily for me International Delight® One Touch Latte'™ makes creating the perfect latte at home a no brainer in just three easy steps! I like to took it a step further and created a caramel latte pumpkin affogato that is everything I love about fall into one mug!
Happy Monday friends! How was your weekend? Our was really good, but it went by so so fast! We did however celebrate the Astros heading to the World Series, which my dad and hubby are headed to today! I am not a huge "watch on tv" sports girl, but I love going to games, so I'm slightly jealous! I think it's partly due to the fact that I use it as an excuse to eat hot dogs and nachos and justify that it is a mandatory thing when one is at any type of sporting event! I will say though, on the opposite end of the spectrum, that anytime Canean is out of town, I love getting to fix girly meals that he wouldn't be thrilled about! I tend to eat way lighter than when he is home for this reason! Recipes like my brussel sprout, apple, and fennel salad with toasted walnuts and parmesan is one that I usually serve as a side, but tonight it's going to be the main meal for me!
This has been the never ending week guys...I don't know what is going on, but I could not be any more excited that tomorrow is Friday! Between being a mom to a toddler and all that comes with it, all the while trying to balance a busy work week, it's just been one of those challenging mama weeks around our house! One thing that I always have on hand for an afternoon pick me up is kombucha! I seriously love this stuff and it definitely gives me a little energy boost when I need it most! I don't know why it has never dawned on me until now to put a little booze in it, but man I am glad I finally did! My persimmon and rosemary boozy booch is the perfect fall cocktail to kick off your weekend!
Y'all...it's only Tuesday and I am already dreaming of the weekend. Parks got sick Sunday night which had us off to a rough start to the week. And of course Mondays mean daddy goes back to work too so my Monday to-do list got pushed aside because being a mom is obviously way more important than anything else! So, you could say I am already feeling like it should be Friday and what I could really use is a big bowl of my easy homemade guacamole with a mega sized margarita on the side!
Happy Monday guys! My mom has been in town for the past week and leaves today which is always so bittersweet for me! Even though I hate to see her go, before that I was out of town for a few days so needless to say my schedule and diet have been all over the place! I am looking forward to getting back into a routine this week and getting back on track with our meals! One of my favorite ways to do this is by having nourish bowls for dinner or lunch! I love knowing that every bowl is packed with nutrition that will give me energy, keep me full, and satisfied! My healthy autumn nourish bowls are just the kind of meal that I need to get my body back on track!
