Happy 4th of July!  It’s going to be a great day.  First of all, I have the day off from work today.  Second, the morning started with Patriotic Protein Pancake, see recipe below.  And third, I’m buying a new laptop today!

I have had this old beast for the last …ummm… SIX years!  It is well past time for a new computer, especially now that I am blogging.   The plan is to hit up Best Buy, Costco and Fry’s,  so I can find the ultimate new computer.  Though, I’m leaning towards this beauty.

After laptop shopping, the Bear and I are going to catch the local fireworks show, which is never disappointing.

Thing 1 and Thing 2 even got a little festive for you guys!  Meaning they had to suffer through a mini photo op… though they never seem to mind.

Trader Joe’s was having a great sale on organic blueberries and raspberries the other day, so I bought a bunch.

As I mentioned above, I started the morning with Patriotic Protein Pancakes.  I first discovered protein pancakes from Brittany and have fallen in love with these breakfast delights.  However, I switched the recipe up a bit to make it a little tastier.

  1. Have a happy 4th of July. Your pancakes look yummy!!!!were having a quiet day fireworks from the back yard from the lake. Last night from the Storm Ballpark. Getting a new computer how nice. I’m still learning this one lol .your doggies look cute . L.U.

  2. That’s almost exactly the recipe I use for protein pancakes! Except I’m always starving and impatient, so a lot of the time they end up as protein-scrambled-mush. Not quite the same. :) Also, I’m super jealous of your new laptop…mine is seven+ years old and s-l-o-w. :)
