Summer Bucket List Check: Early Morning Breakfast

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!

6090887Every good breakfast starts with a hot cup of coffee, especially if the breakfast involved a 6:00 am wake up call.

6090890Who says breakfast dates aren't sexy? :)

6090894Though 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!

6090891Also 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!

You look way too cute to have gotten up @ 6am on a Saturday.
