Breakfast; the most important meal of the day

I know, just as you do, how important a good hearty breakfast is.  It really can make all the difference to your day.  I know the days when I take a little extra time to have a half waffle with berries, OJ, and a sausage link are often some of my best.

A good breakfast gives fuels your day.  It keeps you energized and helps your creative juices flow.  It helps you feel your best and helps you be your best, thusly spreading to those around you too.

However…

Is it odd that while I was typing the “…” I was saying, in my head of course, “dun, dun, dun” slowly stepping down from note to note in a ominous minor key?  😉  Nah, I didn’t think so.

…we don’t always have time to set aside for this all important meal.  So sue me.  It just doesn’t happen.  Heck yeah I love days where I can lounge about leisurely in the morning until I begin to feel sunshiny.  At which point I can saunter into the kitchen and pull out all the many implements required to make said fabulous breakfast.  Then bake, fry, and slice up my very favourite morning foods.  Afterwards savoring every succulent satisfying bite.

Great.  Now I’m craving maple syrup drenched bacon and buttermilk pancakes slathered in butter with a pulpy fresh orange juice.  Nice.

Today though, like most.  Just wasn’t one of those days.  So I hopped in the shower (thankfully Damon was home today so he fed the kid while I washed my greasy mess of hair), grabbed a banana, the girl, and my bag and jumped in the car with my Mom and sister for a trip to the Warman thrift shop.

Ta da!  My breakfast:

…and yes, I am still on the lookout for some pretty pink placemats.

January Photo Challenge

Okay, so this thing was floating around for January 2012…  but lets face it, many of us didn’t see it until the second, or third, or fourth, or maybe you were even more out of touch with the memes of the day and didn’t see it until a week or two into January last year or heck!  Maybe you didn’t even see it at all.  LOL  The point (and yes, I do have one) is that by the time you’d seen it, the thing had already started and, well… who wants to jump in late.  So when fellow MomWriter friend of mine posted it on her FB wall today, a bunch of us figured “what the hell”, and have decided to do it this year.

So, here’s to Gina Cook-Maggard, Kimber Bush Schmahl, Sharon Wren, Jessica Ferguson Pearce (yes, I’m holding you to it too), Pam Kock, and anyone else who wants to join us this January.  I’ll be taking crappy iPhone photos – because while I’m a photographer, totally corny, crappy, iAnything can be super fun.

And because I’m all about honesty, here I am.  Badly in need of a shower, greasy hair, and make-up done by my five year old – and totally rocking the look I might add.  LMFAO  That’s right, chin out, totally bad in all the right ways.  LOL

Wow, you can really see my freckles in that dog awful fluorescent light.  LMAO  Oh well.  Blotchy or not, I’m still awesome.  😛

 

And then me, looking slightly cuter, less “center stage”.  LOL Figured I’d snap a shot with a sketch app I’ve got on my phone.  I downloaded the update today so figured I’d check out the changes.  🙂  I like this new feature where it uses the actual colours from the photo.  Usually it’s all rainbow or all one colour, so that’s a nice upgrade.

Now, you’ve seen mine, let’s see yours!  😀
