After posting my summer bucket list a few weeks ago, I can officially cross something off my list. Though Matt and I brunch fairly often (it's a sport in Chicago, after all), we rarely make it there before 10:00 am. This means we typically wait for a while and then feel semi-rushed through the meal, wanting to turn over our table to the sweet waitresses at our favorite spot. So one of my summer bucket list items was so get up super early, head to breakfast, and enjoy a quiet, leisurely meal together, just the two of us. And two Saturdays ago, that's just what we did!
Every good breakfast starts with a hot cup of coffee, especially if the breakfast involved a 6:00 am wake up call.
Who says breakfast dates aren't sexy? :)
Though I love a fancy pants brunch as much as the next person, sometimes it's nice to just cut the fuss and have a true breakfast. Whole wheat pancakes with fresh fruit, scrambled egg whites, and turkey sausage. Not the least bit fancy, but oh so perfect!
Also mandatory for early morning breakfasts...ponytails, bare minimum makeup, and a morning full of garage sales. Check, check, and check!
One item done, eighteen to go! I can already tell it's gonna be a great summer :) PS: Congrats to the winner of my Misikko giveaway...Shana Russell! Shoot me an email, and I'll get you connected with the team at Misikko!
