Happy Good Friday!!
I thank the Queen for giving us Good Friday and Easter Monday off of work!
1. Good Friday.
Good Friday always reminds me of my first job in high school at Barnacle Bill’s, a seafood restaurant. Every Friday during Lent, and especially Easter Weekend we were crazy busy. We were all like a little family there so the busy buzz of the restaurant actually made it really fun working weekend. Good ol’ carefree high school days!
2. Protein pancakes
I recently found some cookies and cream protein powder and decided to throw it in to my oatmeal pancakes to give it more of a protein punch. We have some chocolate protein powder but its nothing special, cookies and cream makes these so good! I usually top mine with some sliced bananas and cinnamon.
I use a 1/4 cup of oatmeal, 1/4 cup of 0% Fage yogurt, an egg white and about half a scoop of protein powder, delish!
3. Easter lunch
Tomorrow we are going over to Greg’s Armenian Aunt’s house for an Easter lunch. She is seriously the best cook AND the best baker and cooks the most delicious Middle Eastern cuisine. She used to be a professional cake maker and is just an amazing cook as well. Their culture is the more you eat the happier she is because it’s a compliment to her cooking, and there is always so much, so we always leave with happy bellies!
4. Four months today till the wedding!
Today is exactly four months until our wedding!! We still haven’t decided on our first dance song, so I welcome any suggestions!
Check out my child looking chalkboard art.
5. Sunrise service
I loved going to our Church’s Easter sunrise service on Easter Sunday growing up. Being outside as the sun is rising for the Easter sermon was always a highlight for me, I think the free glazed doughnuts helped too! Unfortunately there is a 90% chance of rain tomorrow morning, so it looks like it is going to be rain instead of sun filled morning.
Hope you all have a great Easter weekend!
Any fun Easter weekend plans?
First dance song recommendations?
Those pancakes sound amazing! Where did you find cookies and cream protein powder?
