breakfast
{my messy desk, one homemade doughnut, one clementine orange and a glass of milk.}

I am generally not a morning person. I like to stay up late and make the day feel longer than it is. But the problem with that is I still like my sleep and find that when morning comes, it comes much too early. Annoyingly early. It's hard enough to get myself out of bed, so I came up with an idea that may convince me to stop pressing the snooze button on the alarm clocks (yes, there are two). It is simply this; make breakfast! I never make breakfast. When I do, it's usually on a weekend and generally I sleep in too late on those days to make breakfast. But to me, I've always thought breakfast as one of those meals I don't think I really need. It's more of a luxury in my book. But at the same time, I still really love the idea of breakfast. Getting up to a warm muffin or a fresh blueberry scone and a hot cup of coffee? Yes, PLEASE! What actually ends up happening is I make my coffee and maybe get a bowl of Cheerios (I like putting raisins and walnuts in there to liven it up a smidge). Boring. Who gets excited about waking up to a bowl of Cheerios? Many times I'll just have coffee. Coffee is a must, but that's usually it. So I thought, hey, what if I planned a few days ahead to make breakfast each morning, maybe it would convince me to wake up. And to make things a little more enjoyable, each morning I will take a picture of my breakfast so that I am sure to think of something to make, and in turn, help me to get my butt out of bed. Kinda like Simply Breakfast. Only her photos are way too cool. Mine will probably be pretty bland, but I will try! Let's hope my little experiment won't turn into a picture of a boring bowl of Cheerios every morning. Oh man, now that would be thrilling. Well I've just wasted 20 minutes jabbing on here about making breakfast.

I am going now.

Happy morning and breakfast eating!

P.S. Also happy day this is. History is being made and it is good.

  1. That photo is so pretty (and my mouth is watering! Doughnuts... mmm!). I'm one of those people that has to eat something in the morning, otherwise my brain just doesn't work. ;) lol. But sadly, I usually just opt for a bowl of cereal, nothing exciting. haha. Must work on that though!

    Agreed that today is an exciting day in history. :)
