April fools day and a GIVEAWAY!

Good Morning & Happy Tuesday! I cannot fathom the fact that we are now in April. Speaking of April, did anyone play an April fool’s jokes on you? If you follow me on twitter, you probably read that Joshua got me good. But before I get into that, I must share my breakfast I had this morning with y’all (yes it was that good)!


For the past couple weeks I’ve been working with flaxseeds and trying to incorporate them into a variety of dishes. I’ve done fairly well so far, but was on the hunt for a good pancake recipe. Thankfully while browsing through some blogs, I came across Karey @ Nutty About Health, Flaxseed Protein Pancakes. I immediately bookmarked her recipe, and figured I’d give it a try within a couple of days.

Verdict: AMAZING! I followed her recipe, but made a tiny substitution and add-in…

  • The substitution: Instead of stevia, I added 1 1/2 tbsp. splenda
  • The add-in: a small box of raisins

Ontop of my changes, I nixed the strawberries she used for her toppings, and added peanut butter, apple slices, cinnamon, and a tiny bit of syrup. They turned out incredible, and I am already dying to make another batch tomorrow morning.

Alright, now let’s get into what Joshua did (… psh, what didn’t he do is more like it) to me on April fools day. Oh, and because you now know my love for bulletins, they may happen frequently.

  • I had two water bottles lying out; 1 in the living room, and 1 in the kitchen. Well, that butt decided to put puncture wounds in both bottles. Needless to say, when I went to drink them, water squirted all over my face and on the floor. 
  • Salt and spray butter on my toothbrush
  • Saran wrapped our toilet
  • Hid one shoe from every pair of shoes I have
  • Cut out the bottom of my cereal boxes that I use to top my smoothies with. When I went to grab them from the cupboard, cheez-itz (that he put in the boxes) spilled everywhere
  • Unscrewed our shower head and put tang (powdered orange drink) inside, so when I turned the water on, I was covered with tang

I think that’s it. Needless to say, he played me good (Joshua if you are reading this, you are a jerkface 🙂)!

…and now I’m sure this is the part you’ve all been waiting for. Giveaway time! I recently reached out to Earth Balance to see if they would be willing to partake in a giveaway with my blog.
