Breakfast ~ My Fav Meal of the Day!

I went to make this recipe for breaky this morning for my hubby and I and I couldn’t find it in my recipe binder….. I’ve made them several times and I know I’ve posted it to Facebook… but where is it on my blog?  I must not have posted it….

Well they are too delicious not to share with you.  I found the recipe on Pinterest and I pulled it from http://sixinthesuburbsblog.blogspot.ca however it’s not available anymore.  So after searching and searching I found the same recipe on http://www.snackinginthekitchen.com  who knows where it originally came from.  Sorry to the owner but just know that regardless who’s recipe it is… they are fabulous!

GETTING THROUGH THE DAY…

How do you get through your craptastic days?  We all have our own little things we do I’m sure.  But one thing that has helped me get through work days or rainy days or not the best days in general has been a webcam that is right on the beach in Playa Del Carmen Mexico…. so for those of you that love the Mayan Riviera and love a tropical view…. please ensure you have the most recent flash player available…. you can click here to get it.

To see the webcam which is on Playa Palms property… my favorite little boutique hotel in Playa Del Carmen, please follow this link below

It’s almost here…. set your PVR’s

Bored one night Hubby and I scrolled through the lame movies channels on our TV for something to watch.   We came across Shark Night…. what a waste of time… It’s a movie about 7 college students who head over to one of the girl’s family vacation home on a private lake.  One by one they begin to be attacked by sharks… when they think they have found help…. their help turns out to be a bunch of sick men who have put the sharks in the lake and attached cameras to them…. then they take people out on a boat and lure the sharks…. Obviously it’s bloody and cheesy and lame but they do it because of……. SHARK WEEK!  The sick and twisted fellas feel that so many people tuned in to watch Shark Week and left many viewers wanting to see the real juicy murderous shark videos…. so   they    make    them !!!

Bah…. terrible show.  I don’t care if I ruined the movie for you it’s crap….. but it got me freaked for SHARK WEEK and it starts in just a few days.  🙂

SHARK WEEK 2012

Begins August 12th on the Discovery Channel….

“So let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel”

Shark Week for those that don’t know, as per Wikipedia, is a week-long series of feature television programs dedicated to sharks. Shark Week is held annually, normally running in July or August. Shark Week was developed to help the average person have a greater respect for sharks. Shark Week is now broadcast in over 72 countries.

This year is the 25th anniversary of Shark Week.  It’s first year was in 1988.

I’m not the only one excited for Shark Week… (I’m also terrified of it as well!)  Check out some of the cool “Sharkie” stuff I found on the web…

To honor the upcoming 25th anniversary, The Discovery Communications headquarters in Silver Spring, MD has added giant
inflatable shark to it’s building. The giant shark, named Chompie, is 446 feet long from his nose.. er.. snout… whatever it is… to his tailfin. It took 6.65 miles of fabric to make.

And if you’re having a shark week party!  Perhaps you might want to make these little cuties…
