Sunday was my first Mother’s day and it was absolutely wonderful!! My day started out with a fabulous gift…I rarely splurge on nice things. I hardly ever even really go shopping. The only thing I’d say I really splurge on is Starbucks. I have always wanted a piece from Le Creuset, but I just couldn’t imagine spending the money. As a big surprise for me for Mother’s day, my husband got me a gift certificate for a local kitchen store insisting I purchase my Le Creuset pot, and purchase I did:
Love! I cannot wait to use it! Thank you Josh (and Kaylin & Frank ).
We also went to brunch with Josh’s parents, sister & her boyfriend. We tried a new to us spot, Carter’s Kitchen.
We started with an order of their fries. Very tasty and not greasy at all:
For my breakfast, I had coffee:
and a parfait (you can see Josh’s waffle breakfast in the background):
The restaurant is very charming inside. The food at brunch was good, but nothing really knocked our socks off. Josh’s family has been for dinner and said the dinner is amazing. We will have to give it a go. My little mover made a Mother’s day picture just blurry:
I think Josh’s Mom got more clear pictures on her camera. Will share when I get ahold of them!
The rest of my day was spent baking, cooking, cleaning, teaching body pump, and doing dinner with Josh, Kay & Josh’s parents. Such a great day.
I re-tried Dawn’s coconut chocolate cookies and they turned out perfect this time! SO good!
Hope you’re having a good week so far!
