Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 🤓
Guess who’s making waffles for breakfast this morning!! I figured I should take a break from the oats and make something special given that it’s the weekend and all. Well, that and I’m kind of obsessed with these things. Watch me swap my oats phase for a waffle phase and eat nothing but waffles for breakfast for the next 5 years.
So how’s your weekend been? What are you having for breakfast this morning? What are you up to? Tell me, tell me. And then enjoy these links I put together for ya! Lots of good stuff this week 😊

Oh wow, imagine having ALL the waffles on your blog. Or maybe just combine both and have all kinds of oat waffles for 5 years. Haha. My morning’s been a tad slow and a tad fast, all at once. Eh, you know what I mean. Lol. Mondays, ya know? Hope you’re having an awesome start to the week! Thanks for including my pecan pie bites, Amanda. Can’t wait to see ALL the waffles. xo
Again with the waffles. You’re giving me some serious carb cravings over here, Amanda. yesterday, I watched the marathon and caught up with some reading and writing. I’m doing NaNoWriMo and I still have a lot of words to write before I am back on track.
I couldn’t believe your new waffle recipe! It is incredibly crispy & delicious. This morning, I broke away from my smoothie & had two topped with strawberries, coconut cream & a bit of lemon granola.
Since I made your wonderful homemade applesauce yesterday, tomorrow it will be a topping on another of your waffles.
Running on my treadmill is getting easier & I love it! I haven’t been this flexible for at least 5 years. Could be would retirement is all about….
Jess @ Keeping It Real Food
Yesterday, I got a haircut, went to yoga, and did some food prep for the week.
Today I’m working at the hospital, and am turning commute home into a long to walk to deal with marathon road-closings. Hoping to make it to restorative yoga to help me hit the reset button.
Have a great Sunday!
Rachel @ athleticavocado
Your inspiring me to make waffles now! Also have to try out bullet journaling! Have a great week 🙂
Angela @ HonestlyAngela
Bullet journaling is the best – you should try it for sure! I keep mine super sime and it only takes me 5 minutes a day. I tried o make my journal super elaborate and pretty but it has evolved to be more functional and minimal – just how I like it ☺
michele @ paleorunningmomma
Thanks for linking 🙂 I NEED to break out my waffle iron after seeing yours yesterday! I spent all day in the city with a friend getting married next month and the other bridesmaids, so today is a big catch up day on the computer. At least I get one extra hour 🙂
Sarah @ BucketListTummy
Thanks for sharing my post! These are all great reads, especially the reminder to put our phones down. It’s crazy how much we’ve come to depend on technology.
Why didn’t I think to make waffles this morning? Yours look great! Waffles for dinner in my future, I do believe.
Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious
OMG that kitchen!
meredith @ cookie chrunicles
you know I agree with that shape article about the clothes in our closet! 3 things yesterday – long run, went to my son’s hockey game, out for dinner (Mexican food, I never eat Mexican food) 3 things today – easy run, mall time, over to my parents for dinner
Thank you for sharing Amanda!
I liked the article about consistency and I think that is important for anyone, buisness or not. I enjoyed each of these posts!
