YAY! I finally wrote the very first Pancakes with Pasha post! I am so excited to be starting this series and to have a place to share with you all the things that are inspiring me lately in hopes they will inspire you too!
And what better day to publish my first Pancakes with Pasha than the day after Thanksgiving and the official kickoff to the holiday season!!
I guess I should start by explaining why I decided to call this series Pancakes with Pasha though -huh?
Ever since I can remember, I have loved making pancakes!
Like homemade not from a mix pancakes (it’s easier than you think btw!).
Also – I am NOT A COFFEE OR TEA DRINKER.
So calling this series “Coffee with Pasha” would just be an outright lie.
One night I was laying in bed, desperately trying to figure out a catchy title for this series that I am really hoping to write at least once every two weeks.
And my brain was like – when I ask friends to meet in the morning, what am I asking them to do?
You can bet your bottom dollar I am thinking about where can we meet for pancakes 😂.
So there it is – Pancakes with Pasha popped into my head ;).
And yes – at some point I guess I better share my homemade pancake recipe.

What I’m Currently Planning
Now that it is officially Christmas season – I guess it is pretty obvious that I am focusing on gift giving!!!
So my issue with sharing my ideas here is this – my kids may or may not actually read this post!
So my solution to that (at least for stocking stuffers anyway) – is to give you the link to my Like to Know It post with so many fun ideas for stockings for “older” kids 😉 and hope my kids don’t actually go to this link too ;).
I am also hosting my book club’s annual holiday book exchange & brunch on Sunday December 4th and have been getting all the things ready for that.
We do that brunch as a potluck (which is AWESOME for me – the hostess).
I do however make my above mentioned German Pancakes, bacon (duh), and a yummy quiche.
And I provide all the fixings for mimosas and bellinis ;).
You can read all about my table setting ideas for a holiday breakfast here as well as some additional holiday breakfast recipes from blogging friends of mine ;).
And one last thing I am currently planning is a trip to England with my youngest daughter in a little over a week!!!
We are planning to visit London, Bath, the Cotswolds, and York. And obviously hit every single Christmas market we can find!!
Be sure to follow along on Instagram for all that fun!
Did you know I visited London at Christmas time with my husband back in 2018? AND I even wrote a blog post about that trip that you can read all about in hopes that it is on your own Christmas trip bucket list!!
Need a Book to Read?
The timing for my very first Pancakes with Pasha post is perfect with my book club party next weekend!
We all bring a new, wrapped book to exchange at the party.
SPOILER ALERT AHEAD FOR ANY OF MY BOOK CLUB FRIENDS READING THIS!!!
The book I chose to bring to the party is Wrong Place Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister.
I recently finished that book and found it sooooo good.
In fact, I finished it in two days and yes – it is one of those books that you neeeeeddd to know the ending of!!
And the book I am currently reading that came highly recommended by a couple of Instagram friends is The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margo by Marianne Cronin.
I am loving it so far but with Thanksgiving and my party next week then my trip to Europe shortly after that – I haven’t had much time to enjoy it (ahem – finish it!).
I am looking forward to having the time on the flight to London to finish it then though!
Items I Am Shopping For & Think You Might Like Too
Besides shopping for gifts, I have been loving all the cute holiday tops out there lately.
And may or may not have gotten myself one or two of them ;0.
I mean really – how cute is that plaid? It is honestly one of my favorite plaids too!!
Click on the photo above to shop ;).
And here is another recent favorite I found:
Both are currently on sale and going fast!!
All Things Cashmere
My most recent obsession seems to be all things cashmere. How have I never known how insanely soft this material is???
Here are a few of my favorites I have found (and may or may not be giving as gifts this year – click on image to shop!):
All of the above items are on sale for a short period of time too btw!!
I have also been doing a little shopping for some holiday cozies and matching pajamas for my family!
Here are a couple of my finds:
Truth be told – I have also been doing some shopping for our New Year’s Eve Party too!
I mean – even those foil balloons sell out lately so you have got to plan ahead for these things!
I am currently writing a blog post about hosting a NYE party but figured I would give you plenty of time to check out all the fun things I have found too (before said post is published that is ;0).
The Latest on My Blog That Might Inspire You
I have been using these garland wraps for the last five years and cannot say enough amazing things about them!!
I am loving this cute mug for our Christmas morning brunch and am just waiting for it to arrive in the mail any day now (and am so excited it is on a Black Friday sale too!).
Well I guess that is enough inspiring for my very first Pancakes with Pasha post!
I hope I didn’t overwhelm you with all the things…
Being that it is Black Friday and the start of the busy season – I seemed to find a lot to share!!!
I imagine come January that will not be the case ;).
But then again, knowing me – I am always finding something to talk about!!
How about you? Are you a chatty one too? Please leave a message below if that is the case ;)!

I had fun writing it and am excited about the future for this fun series. Who knows – maybe it actually will become a WEEKLY thing?!
