Something that I absolutely love about these pancake bites is that there is no baking involved. And based on my baking skills yesterday…well, I have none. I always have high hopes for baking and I’m constantly disappointed. Which is why pouring batter into a machine is way sexier to me. No worry, no upset, no eating the burnt scraps. Just simple, fluffy pancake bites to snack on. Just simple, pure joy.
You know else is pure joy? Sleeping through the night since we got new pillows. Why is it so incredibly hard to find the perfect pillow. Even now, when I’m sleeping through the night, I sometimes wake up in the morning wondering if it’s enough support for the neck. I had pillows that drove me crazy before because they were like sleeping on a yoga block, and now I have the fluffiest pillow ever that it just sinks completely. Why is shopping for pillows the most impossible task ever?!
I would say that I’m so excited that this week is coming to a close…but I just remembered it’s only Tuesday. But this week I have my eye on the prize – a trip to Walla Walla, Washington. This will be my first time to Walla Walla and I’m pretty pumped. After going to Santa Ynez Valley (this amazing little wine country while not even being that into wine) I’m excited to experience another place with a similar feel. I hope the people are just as nice as SYV because I seriously cannot wait to go back there. I have some things on my agenda and a few restaurants on my itinerary, but I’ve never been so if you have any recommendations for gluten free restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops or just cool places to see, let me know!! I’ve found that recommendations from others can be a life saver when I’m on these short trips!
Have you listened to my podcast lately? For most of the 51 episodes I’ve recorded, I’ve talked to myself for a solid hour. But I’m trying to mix it up moving forward. At first, I had absolutely no idea who I would want to interview on the podcast, so I finally turned to my instagram to see the people I enjoy following the most and started asking them! For far, I have 4 interviews this week and 2 the next. And I’m hoping I can keep adding to that. I like talking to myself (I am an only child) but hearing other people’s stories is the whole reason I started listening to podcasts in the first place. Have you listened to How I Build This with Guy Raz yet? Obsessed. So if you have any person you would like to hear on the podcast and learn a little more about their story, let me know!
Walla Walla and human recommendations are a must today.
Now go eat pancakes in the shape of balls!
- Heat up cake pop maker.
