Back up the train.

This last weekend, we had our first night away from the babe.

We went with my brother and sister-in-law to see Aaron Lewis in concert.

Let me tell ya, we had the best seats I’ve ever had at a concert.

We were on the ground, just four or five rows from the stage. SO cool! I still don’t understand how people score front row seats though. For once, I would love to do that. Just once. Someone, please clue me on how this is done. We bought these tickets a minute after they went on pre-sale and still couldn’t get front row.

Ashley and I were total moms though. It was kind of sad the amount of times we were yawning. The people around us must have thought “how rude!” (Full House anyone?)

Afterwards we went out for a couple cocktails but not before stopping at a DD for some coffee. Caffeine was definitely a must at that hour.

We called in a night and crawled into bed around 3 or 4 in the morning. Then we were up at 7 to get little man. Not much sleep for us, but I was happy to pick him up.

I know everyone thinks their kid is cute, but really, I can’t get enough of him :)

Yesterday I had a little extra time so I strayed from my normal breakfast and made pancakes. Woot!

Birthday Cake Protein Pancakes
Serves 1

– 1/3 cup Kodiak cake mix
– 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk*
– 1/4 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
– 1/4 scoop Cellucor cor-fetti protein powder
– heaping tbsp jam/jelly (optional)

1. In a small bowl, mix the cake mix and almond milk until combined. Don’t overdo it. Set aside. *You can sub the almond milk for water but I’ve found the almond milk makes the pancakes fluffier.
2. In a separate bowl, mix together the greek yogurt and protein powder.
3. Preheat your skillet over medium heat until warm. Lightly coat with non-stick spray. Add half the pancake batter to the pan and cook until bubbly. Flip. Cook another 1-2 minutes.
4. Repeat with remaining batter.
5. Plate one pancake and top with half the cake batter frosting. Top with other pancake. Repeat with frosting. And top it all with jelly.

I made them yesterday AND today. I love pancakes!

ps. I know you love my fine china.

Had to be as quiet as possible without waking the baby.
