Aww, I had Pumpkin Pancakes too!!! I added peacans to my batter for a little something extra and it was sooo worth it. The little crunch was perfect! Sometimes I add chocolate chips though when I am feeling extra crazy. lol.

Glad you are having a fantastic Sunday and glad you are feeling great hun!

The pancakes look delicious! I'm always jealous of people who can form perfect little circle pancakes.

I love that first mug too. I feel like I saw it in a store recently and wish I had bought it.
