Victory Pancakes

Good afternoon lovelies!

I hope you  are all enjoying your weekend so far. The weather here in Tennessee was FANTASTIC yesterday and it looks like we’re gonna have another gorgeous day today! We had quite the storm roll in late last night, but I think it was just what we needed to level out the humidity. Low humidity in the South…now THAT’S an oxymoron!

I laid low and had a good “chill” day yesterday because I decided on my last run (Friday) that I was gonna set a new goal…

10 miles for Sunday!

Eh, sometimes a girl just has to have something to shoot for.

And guess what…

I did it!!

Garmin 10 MilerIn an hour and a half!

I was afraid I made a mistake when I didn’t end up getting out there until around 7:30am, but the weather was absolutely PERFECT…65-70 degrees, sun behind the clouds, light breeze in the air…plus, I discovered a new station to run to on Pandora:

The perfect blend of singing and screaming to push me those extra miles! 😉

After my run, I downed a protein shake (a blend of this and this given to me by a friend which now I’m thinking about buying) on my way back to the casa and started day dreaming of won one thing…

Victory Pancakes!

Since my French toast breakfast earlier this week, I have NOT been able to get the combo of peach and coconut out of my head, so I knew exactly where I wanted to go with this Pancake Sunday’s recipe.

Obviously, I was in some sort of recipe-creating daze because as I started throwing ingredients into a bowl, I suddenly realized I was out of milk. Luckily, I opened the fridge and found a good stand in:

Peach Chobani

And what a coincidence…my Chobani just happens to be PEACH flavored! 😉

Coconut Peach Victory Pancakes

Winner, winner, pancake dinner breakfast!

Hey, no one finished ahead of me, therefore I get a blue ribbon, right? We’ll just pretend that there were actually other people present at the time! 😉

Coconut Peach Yogurt PancakesI topped AND layered my cakes with freshly diced peaches, unsweetened shredded coconut, and a little coconut cream.

But the REAL magic happened after my plate just happened to “bump into” my bottle of maple syrup!

Coconut-Peach-PancakesCheck out that maple drip hanging over the edge!

Yep, best way to celebrate a new PDR!

Let me know when they start serving up pancakes after races…maybe then I’ll finally sign up for one! 😉

What was your last “victory”? How did you celebrate it?
Life is too short not to appreciate the little things…no matter how small, if it makes you well up with pride, do a “happy dance”, or whip up some celebratory pancakes, it deserves recognition!
