Morning Mancakes

Hey peoples!

Wow, today has seriously flown by…I can’t believe I’m just now sitting down to blog!

So I ended up going out last night…

After an all-day laundry marathon (yeah, that’s what happens when you never fold your clothes from the week BEFORE), I thought about just ditching all the clothes and bringing back the toga.

That thought actually ended up giving me great inspiration for my costume!

I went to Walmart with an idea…15 minutes later I walked out with this:

Flat sheet and Christmas tree ribbon

And of course a few accessories:

FYI, the Hard Candy Glow face & body bronzer is ahhhhmazing!

Ironing, scissoring, and bronzing commenced upon my arrival at the house.

30 minutes later:


The ribbon had about half a dozen configurations before I finally decided to just wrap it around my waist.

I had an absolute blast…I almost forgot how much I love costume parties…I might start going out in costume every time I go out from now on.

Lady Gaga does it! 😉

So you’re probably wondering about the title of this post, huh?

Well, this is what I woke up to this morning:

Allow me to introduce to you what I like to call “mancakes”

All the same ingredients as a pancake only with a rugged manly look to them! 😉

My guy friend found out about my love for pancake breakfasts and did his best to put a smile on my face this morning. And without any measurements, a 5 minute fight with the skillet after the chocolate chips acted like gorilla glue, and an emergency syrup substitute, I have to say he was successful!

One strawberry and one chocolate chip
Drizzled with peanut butter thinned with milk.

Regardless of appearances, as much as I LOVE making pancakes for breakfast, it’s also nice to sit back and have them made for me! 🙂

Do you usually buy your costume outright or make something up yourself?
I love forcing myself to get creative when it comes to costumes. I’ve been known to walk into a thrift store without a thought in mind and end up walking out with a couple (super cheap) items that turn into a great costume! I was excited that I was able to get all the stuff for my costume last night all for around 20 bucks!

  1. That was going to be my Halloween costume too! Until I got sick and was bed ridden for the weekend. You look great though! 🙂
    And I love the mancakes haha. What a sweet guy, and such a cook 😉

  2. Love your costume…especially that ring. I usually always make my costume, but this year I caved and bought mine. Creating one is always more fun though!
