Warning: Pretty Random Post - Mother's Day Breakfast - Gifts - Gloomy by Matt Costa (A Song I'm Loving) - Tea - TV Shows I Like ...12:10 PM
This year we shared a simple breakfast with our Mom's.
Sparkling beverages from Trader Joe's
Blackberries, Blueberries, and Raspberries
Almond coffee cake from the cutest local Bakery - Thomas Cake Shop - the owners are adorable :)
Trader Joe's Dry Rubbed Bacon
I wasn't planning on taking pictures, but it all looked pretty nice.
Green Plates from Target last year.
White dishes - Sophie Conran
Vintage cake stand
We gifted our Mom's books (my Mom is already loving this Nate book)
and pots of Lavender. Josh wants to name the next dog Lavender - I like it! I can't wait to read this book as well. I just picked up books I really want, and hoped they would enjoy them.
Organic green tea was waiting on the table.
Teapot from Teavana. I really want to spoil myself someday with this peach tea that they carry. I tried it in the store - I found it delicious!
Noah had a baseball game on Mother's Day so I went to a little of that game. It was freezing out - hail was falling. I also caught up on my TV watching - Smash and Nashville. I like days where I don't feel guilty at all for just hanging out.
In honor of this great Michigan weather - here is one of my new favorite songs. It is by Matt Costa, and is called Gloomy. It's catchy, and upbeat despite the title. I LOVE it! My sister gave me his CD titled Songs We Sing, and it has been playing in my car very much as of late. It's one of those where I really like almost every song. Somehow mine has Gloomy on it, but I can't find it online - Gloomy is last on mine. Anyhow - I see he has a new CD - I will have to check that one out as well.
Video quality is really not so good - only one I could find though - and it's really only 2 minutes long. Hope you'll listen. Happy Tuesday!
