Mr. How Sweet bounds up the stairs at 7 am and starts jumping on the bed. He’s been up since 6 am because he’s getting old, and I’ve been up since 6 am because I’m getting old, he’s about as quiet as a bull in a china shop, and he blasts Dolly Parton videos on CMT every Sunday morning.

He’s already making pancakes, even though he’s had his first breakfast. But he can’t go another hour without eating. Pancakes are the last thing on my mind since I consumed nearly an entire jar of salted caramel last night before bed.


However, after one look I’m sold.

I can’t ever turn down a chocolate chip pancake.


Somewhere in the hustle and bustle, this has became a tradition. Why can’t someone cook for me everyday?

      Pancakes are the stuff of life. I should try to wrangle my SO into making some.

    HA! Kind of similar to my morning except I wasn’t up at 6AM (since I was up, turning my kitchen into a polenta lab until 2am). But BoyfriendMan, jumped into bed, said, “Are you getting up soon? Let’s play. It’s Sunday!” and then made me coffee. Can’t resist that either!

    What a man! Making you pancakes on Sunday. I need to get hooked up with this deal. I am usually up by 7 AM regardless of the day…usually more like 5:30/6 (at the absolute latest) during the week. Today…I slept until 9 AM it was glorious

      I wish I had a tripod!! Caitlin, Abby and I were just discussing that yesterday. I do not have one… I’d love one. And yes, it is SO hard to pour and shoot. It takes me multiple tries to get it right.

    I like your style! I am consistently amazed by how much earlier I wake up on the weekends as each year goes by… To top it off, I am mildly annoyed these days if I sleep in because I am convinced the weekend goes too fast if you’re not up early! ;) Happy Sunday!

    hahaha that sounds like me in the morning. My husband says that he lives with a 5 year old because I wake up early on weekends and poke him and prod him until he finally gets annoyed enough that he has no choice but wake up. :) He, on the other hand, can sleep for HOURS. I think if it wasn’t for me, he’d sleep till 1-2 on weekends. I have no idea how he can just switch like that after waking up all week at 6am. In any case, I really want pancakes now.
