Pancakes and crafts

This is what my night consisted of. I came home from work and I decided to make pancakes for supper, since Josh doesn’t like them, we don’t eat them often. He was at work so it was all me. So I made 2 nice big fluffy ones, and went out with my bacon and pancakes to watch tv. It is possible that in all of my syrupy excitement that I forgot pouring the 3rd one into the pan…and leaving it there.
I didn’t notice the smoke in the kitchen, and neither did the fire alarm (the battery went dead yesterday, how convenient). So there I was, chowing down on my awesomeness and then I go to clean up my dishes and get into the kitchen and it’s all like foggy and sick and it was at that point that I remembered…oops. Does apartment insurance cover stuff like that? I wonder. So I was laughing at myself for being such a dork, and I just had to take a picture to show you how great of cook I am really. As you can see on the box, my pancakes were just a tad overcooked! After that whole fiasco was over, I trotted over to Karlee’s place to make some more “Utah signs”. Jo was supposed to come, but she got caught up v-teaching. Melese got to drop by with Jace tho, which was cool, since I feel like I haven’t seen her forever! I think Karlee and I did pretty good, making 2 signs for myself and 3 for her, amidst the gossip and chatter. Josh came to pick me up around 9:30 and we ended up talking some more until about 10:30. It was nice just to talk with friends, and I wish there were more time in the day for it. If only everyday was a weekend, huh Karlee? Haha.
So that was my evening. It was good, but since I wasn’t in bed at my usual 9:30, I am tired out already and it hasn’t even hit 10 am!

Jake doesn't like pancakes either. So I have them with Jace in the morning while Jakes at school. Don't worry I do the same thing and forget about things and burn them. The signs look great. It was fun hanging out. c/ya

When you said a black pancake you really meant a black pancake!! I'm glad that you didn't burn your apartment down and that you were able to come over and hang out with us last night! I took the signs in to the school this afternoon and they all loved them!
Oh, and P.S. just for the record... it was 4 signs that I made! :) (I cheated though because I already had them painted.)

I have burned many a pancake in my life time! I still have a sign I need to do, I told Karlee to call me next time you guys get together so...you too...just let me know. My sign is from last Christmas...:( I am really behind!

JO said...

You are so funny! I loved your burnt pancake. Curt doesn't like pancakes either. In fact the night I was about to make them he went to McDonalds because he saw that I was about to whip some up. I was a little annoyed but wasn't about to let him ruin my meal so I made them anyways. He missed out.

That pancake makes me laugh out loud. hahahaha. I have forgotten about them before too... it gets worse when you have kiddos. They distract you when you have stuff on the stove.

Why don't husbands like pancakes for dinner? They are so weird that way!
in response to the post you left me: Heck yes we can hang out when you come to Utah! I really want Ladd to meet you two. Please be yourselves though. No reservations because we have the same sense of humor. ;)

Ok so I have to admit, I totally LOVED your pancake. I laughed like a crazy person. It's totally something I would do...except for the part where the smoke detector didn't go off...mine goes off if it even THINKS about smoke!!!

Claudine said...

You have no idea how much I want to learn how to make those signs!!
Kristi made one for me for my wedding and I really really love it. I totally wish I was that artistic. I HAVE A DREAM! It's your fault though that I have it!
