I'd have to say brunch is my favorite meal. One- I hardly ever have it, so it is a novelty. Two- it gives me an excuse to have coffee from 6am until noon. I know, that's so bad. But it's so GOOD. Especially because we always have fresh coffee. I mean fresh- my husband roasts it at least once a week. He has this roaster, and we order our coffee beans from there too. Three- I can take the time to really cook breakfast food. Because let's be honest, when I wake up at 5am, the best I can do is pop some bread in the toaster or microwave an oatmeal packet.
So for our lazy Sunday Valentine's celebration, we had brunch!
I plugged in the record player and put on some Fats Domino "Blueberry Hill" to get the party started. We've been on a real oldies kick. They are awesome dance party songs!
I got some strawberry milk for a treat and filled my old fashioned milk bottles. Max didn't like it and neither did I. It is way too sweet.
I made little pom poms for the place cards and for each place setting, along with one of the Valentine messages I had included in Max and Lola's gifts.
We made heart chocolate chip pancakes. John and I had the pancake debate we have every time we make pancakes- he likes huge thick pancakes and I like tiny silver dollar pancakes. Does anyone else have this debate?
She did not like them.
I got some Valentine window gels so Max could help me decorate. He likes when we decorate for every season now. He says, "These decorations are so beautiful Mama!". He had a ton of fun with these gels.
I moved over my watercolor ombre garland and John got me some pretty flowers.
It was a really rainy, dreary day, but that didn't get us down. Happy Valentine's Day!
