E: Blogger Brunch- Honeycomb Cafe

My Sunday was filled with a little of this and a little of that. It started off with a great brunch with Mandi & Bryan and Amelia & Kevin. Amelia is an incredible pastry chef and is in school in Colorado to become a Registered Dietitian. She is also super sweet. She was back in South Carolina visiting and I was so glad I was able to meet up with her and her husband! We all headed out to the Honeycomb Cafe for some good eats. Josh got the whole grain pancakes:

Although he enjoyed them, he said they failed in comparison to Charleston’s Cafe’s pancakes. I got an order of oatmeal and a side of fruit:

The ladies (Amelia, Mandi, Me):

Amelia brought Josh and I the most amazing cookies (filled with chunks of chocolate and peanuts):

She also brought Josh his favorite dessert ever…key lime pie! And she got the baby this adorable onesie from the USA Olympics training center:

Thank you so much for all the goodies Amelia!!!

After brunch, I cleaned the house, went to do more baby registering, baked, cooked dinner and then finally relaxed! It was a great day :) What was your Sunday like??

I’m off to teach Pump & work. Enjoy your day!!

What a great Sunday!!! And that's such a cute picture of the 3 of you!
I actually went to a group x class (instead of teaching), and it was awesome. Then Jay and I took naps and got Panera for dinner. It was nice and relaxing!

Your Sunday was a lot more exciting than mine! We cleaned, watched a butt load of Indiana Jones, and snuggled. Pretty boring, but at least we were productive for the first half of the day. ;)
