A Happy, but Chilly Mother's Day



We had a really happy, but very chilly Mother's Day weekend that included a breakfast, a brunch, a baseball game and wonderful presents. The presents included flowers, a pretty flower bead for my Pandora bracelet and a really unique tray with chevrons and a monogram in colors to match my upcoming kitchen project. Look for my post tomorrow for photos and instructions on a additional handmade gift I received from Megan.

The weekend started with breakfast with my parents and Melissa. Time with older parents is always so precious.

Saturday night, we spent a chilly, but fun, few hours in Detroit, watching the Tigers. Luckily we took a blanket to keep us warm, because the temperature by the end of the game, was 43 degrees!

My family took me to our club for brunch on Mother's Day and it was a lovely time with really great food. We laughed and talked throughout the afternoon.

My favorite part of the meal and a splurge for me was the dessert buffet. Everything was in small portions - which is perfect for sampling all the goodies. I tried the warm apple cobbler, a chocolate chip cannoli, a key lime square and my absolute favorite dessert - creme brûlée.

My husband and daughters made me feel special - I hope you had a Happy Mother's Day too :-)

Happy Monday!

  8. Hi Vicki,
