Pancakes for a Princess… and Mr. Messy

Pin It!

The other day, I was privileged to receive one of the cutest emails ever!

It just made me smile so much that I had to share some of it with all of you (after asking permission, of course).

Without further ado, I give you the sweet reader, Kerrie:

I tried your Brownie Batter Pancakes today… They are amazing!

We added chocolate chips—a pancake staple in this house—along with Fairy Dust sprinkles from Australia.  When my 3-year-old son ran downstairs after his sister said I was making pancakes, he said:

“Mommy, I just love pancakes. You make good pancakes.”  I couldn’t take them off the griddle fast enough!

He ate the whole batch himself. His sister got ONE. LOL

They are even fit for a princess!

See, cutest email ever, right?  Thank you so much, Kerrie, for brightening my day :).


Keeping up with the cuteness factor:

Yesterday afternoon, Henry and I went out for a short run to break in my new special running shoes.

Afterwards, he was one pooped puppy! :)

I haven’t ventured out yet for a morning run in the new shoes; right now I’m sticking with my old shoes for my long morning runs.  I figure I should get used to the shoes slowly.  Besides, it gives me an excuse to go out in the afternoons with the Henry.

As if I needed an excuse to spend time with him!

    In love with your puppies. Sometimes I wish I had a “Henry” to run with, ’cause you know I can’t take a 15 pound Shih Tsu very far…

  22. Jessie says:

    Aww, what an adorable email! Love the kiddie pictures, too – they look like they’re loving your pancakes. And gosh, they look pretty darn good to me, too!

  23. Anonymous,
    LOL oh I feel your pain: my other dog, Molly, wouldn’t last a minute! I don’t take Henry too far, but he loves getting a little exercise. He could probably run faster than me :)

    Even though I am not a pancake fan, these look extremely convincing!!

  25. Hi Katie,

    I am new to your blog! It is so impressive that you have been blogging since 2007, that is some dedication!

    You were not kidding with the title, you are serious about your chocolate! haha I am with you, I am Swiss and am VERY serious about chocolate too. :)

    You are stunning by the way! I am sure you hear that all the time. More importantly you seem to be beautiful on the inside too.

    Love the pictures of the kids eating!
