Our Story

What is Saturday Morning Pancakes?

It ain’t nothin’ but a tee thang baby! We are die-hard Gangsta Rap fans who make hilariously awesome Hip Hop inspired apparel for little Gs and OGs (aka, kids and adults). We believe that humor combined with super soft & cozy apparel can make style more epic and life more fun! Our mission is to spread smiles & silliness to everyone we meet. 😊

How it all started:

 

I am a girl with many passions: Dr. Dre, dancing, silliness, smiling, Leslie Knope, nachos, solitaire (yeah I know it’s weird but I was an only child), coffee, cheesy jokes, IPA’s, people, and all things target.

I spent my entire adult life working with at-risk and underprivileged youth.  It was the hardest and greatest thing I have ever done. This work made me realize I needed to spread smiles to everyone I met. I didn’t want anyone coming to me without leaving happier. These children who were wise beyond their years taught me that laughter is healing and humor builds resilience.

Once I got pregnant with my first baby, I switched paths so I can be a stay-at-home mom and a working woman 💪 I decided to take my love of Hip Hop and combine it with my “annoying little sister style” sense of humor and Saturday Morning Pancakes was born!!

 I had two goals for SMP: 1) building a community of people who loved hip hop and would most likely be my best friends and 2) spreading smiles to everyone I met. 

 These past 4 years have been a whirlwind of design, music, diapers, Disney junior on repeat, social media, potty training, financials, and cleaning out sippy cups (sooo many sippy cups!!!)

 And it’s working… I’m a stay-at-home mom and a business owner! See... I'm surviving somehow 😜

 Just this year, SMP has finally hit the next level that’s allowed me to hire some amazing kick a$$ women (and 1 man). I’ve built a company off of love and now have a team of people who are out there spreading smiles along with me. And that is freaking FANTABULOUS!!

 I owe a huge thank you to our community for joining us on this awesome journey and I hope you’ll continue to be a part of our smile story. 😊

Meet the SMP crew:

Our Founder: Jamie

I'm Jamie - a mom to a very high energy, curly pigtailed, giggling preschooler and a super mellow and wise beyond his years little boy who loves to dance! I am obsessed with nachos and beer, a devoted fan of Leslie Knope, and a wannabe gangsta. I started this company with one simple mission - to spread smiles and silliness. Luckily I get to do that one 90s hip hop tee at a time. 

 Allstar of Awesomeness: Jenn

Who run the world?! Jenn! She is the ultimate definition of #bossmom. She manages everything, analyzes everything, and makes sure that our Hip hop flag is always flying! She's a mom to the cutest little 2 year old, the most devoted hockey fan I have ever met, and her laugh just lights up the room (it's the kind of laugh that makes you feel really funny, and those are my favorite kind.) She's humble beyond words and will most definitely be squirming in her seat when she reads this for the first time 😆

 OG of IG: Carli

Carli is our social media babe! She is a rock star with all things creative and is the girl behind all of our funny posts. She is also the friendly face that responds to your emails. She has a fat cat named Frank that she looooves and claims that you can't be a crazy cat lady if you only have one cat 😉 She likes to giggle - when she was younger and people asked what she wanted to do with her time, she would respond with "just giggle" And giggle she does! She's also a certified Yoga instructor, keeping us all zen. She's our little giggling Yogi 😂

 Quality Control Cutie: Abbie

Abbie is our little ray of sunshine. She has her hand in all things shipping. She makes sure you get your orders asap and that they are delivered with care and a smile 😊 She's an animal lover, especially loves dogs, is addicted to coffee and Hot Cheetos, and is constantly laughing (even at inappropriate times, which makes me love her even more 😉). 

 Amazon Queen: Lauren

Lauren rocks everything Amazon. She makes sure those Amazon warehouses are packed to the brim with Hip Hop happiness so when you need a shirt asap, the prime bots have you covered! She occasionally bosses around an incredibly smart, silly, talented and handsome brown eyed boy as well as an independent, brave, imaginative and hysterical little girl. She's a sucker for any housewife show, wine and chunky monkey ice cream. She lives for days she can sleep in (which are few a far between with two kids) and is pretty sure her husband is always watching ESPN. And the last thing I just absolutely love about her: she eats string cheese by just biting it! Where's the fun in that?! We are slowly trying to convert her to a peal and eat type of cheese lover 😆

 

Fulfiller Of Awesomeness: Kenzie

Kenzie is the adorable face of our shipping department (aka - awesomeness fulfillment center). She handles all shipping related questions and makes sure that your awesome tees get in your hands as quickly as humanly possible. She is a Colorado Native, is a fur mama to a 12 year old pup named Taquito and a shaved cat named Hemi, has 10 tattoos, and is way cooler than me 😂 

The Main Man: John

John is our big brother, our bodyguard, and our favorite person to mess with 😂 He is our warehouse master and inventory king! He makes sure we are organized and we never run out of your favorite tees. Nothing gets by him, he's a ninja! He loves to surf, is on a bowling & golf league, taught English in Japan for 3 years, and is a total bad a$$. He is the only dude on our team and he handles our shenanigans like a champ!
