Because I Love Mornings.

Look at what I woke up to this morning?!

This little child learned how to ride a bike and then got really excited. THUMBS UP FOR ROCK AND ROLL!

That’s my kinda kid.

Let’s talk about the first things I think about when I wake up:

Fuzzy socks and coffee. One thing I love (and hate) about living up yonder is that it gets suuuper chilly at night and makes my room frozen the next morning. I like sleeping with my room slightly cold (always been this way, crank the A/C up in the summer, turn the heat down in the winter), but when I leave my window all the way open with the fan on, it’s like I’m waking up in a freakin’ igloo.

No big, just bring on the fuzzy stuff.

And breakfast.

My favorite thing to do (learned from a tip by one of my best girls) is to chop up some bacon and throw it in the pan before you make your eggs. Saute them a little bit, let the bacon bits brown (say that ten times fast), and then add in your eggs. I’m a scramble girl, but I know you could make a bomb omelette with this method.

It makes everything taste like bacon, and we all know that’s a good thing. (vegans and vegetarians, try it with fake’n bacon with eggs or tofu — guaranteed it will taste just as bomb)

Do you love mornings? Why or why not?
Bacon + eggs –> yay or nay?
What do you think about first thing in the morning?

Love that kid video! Nothing is better than leaving the gym right before the sun comes up. That’s my favorite. :)

I hate mornings…I love sleeping lol but getting up early and getting things done is always nice.

Bacon + eggs = heaven!! only better combo is chocolate + pb. I’ll have to try your scramble idea.

The first thing I think about in the morning is how much longer I can sleep before I HAVE to get up or I’ll be late to work lol

I love mornings!! Waking up early, cranking out my workouts, coming back fixing breakfast and coffee and enjoying it all. I think oatmeal and omelettes are my fav for breakfast! I usually do canadian bacon with my egg whites. My bf makes fun of me because I wake up so early but I feel like it just gets my day started. If I running late in the morning, screws up my whole day!

Great post! Love the fuzzy socks!

I just did that same thing with bacon, only I toasted my bread in the pan (had my eggs earlier). Bacon bread with Sunbutter, ftw!

Mornings are my favorite time of day, I love curling up on the couch with a hot cup of coffee and watching the sun rise. It’s the best.
I think I have those socks! I have a million pairs of fuzzy socks, it’s the only way I make it through the winter!

I never used to be a morning person, but now I love them. I find it is when I am most productive. Unless I have been out the night before of course….
