Contest winner will be announced tomorrow!
Every so often, I have a completely perfect Sunday. As I’ve mentioned before, Sunday’s are a bit dicey for me. I usually get really upset because Monday is just around the corner and am filled with so much dread, I can’t actually enjoy Sunday. Well, thankfully, yesterday was not one of those Sunday’s. Yesterday was perfect.
We started off the day sleeping in, which for me, is nearly impossible. I have an internal alarm clock that wakes me up around 7-7:30 EVERY single morning. However, yesterday it was on snooze and I actually slept in until around 9! After I woke up, my pup, who NEVER cuddles, curled up next to me on the couch to watch a bit of
news, er, Lifetime.
Isn’t he, just, the cutest thing you ever did see?
After a bit of cuddling, I got ready for our Easter brunch date with some friends of ours. We went to Vermillion in Old Town, which is a fabulously trendy restaurant in a restored town-home. I’m talking exposed brick walls, lanterns and a fabulous wine rack along the side of AN ENTIRE wall. Oh and the food and drink? AMAZING.

I indulged in 2 delicious mimosas and the most decadent and fatty meal I’ve had in a LONG time, eggs benedict served OVER grilled cheese. I can’t even begin to imagine how many calories and fat grams were in it (the thought alone still haunts me) but it was definitely worth the splurge. The egg was perfectly poached and the bread was crispy and gooey. Absolute perfection. [I apologize in advance for the low quality iPhone pics!]
Whoever had the bright idea to put a poached egg on a grilled cheese definitely has my vote. However, this is one splurge I can only afford once every few years. My pants are already tight! Luckily everyone else was as stuffed as me so we decided to walk around Old Town and along the waterfront. The weather was ABSOLUTELY perfect.
After a lovely few hours of strolling around (I don’t stroll enough, I need to get on that) we headed home to take the pups out and so E could work on his paper. I took a nice little nap and woke up to the sound of thunder. I’m not a HUGE fan of thunderstorms but for some reason, I had the urge to grab the camera and take some photos of it rolling in. There’s just something so beautiful about a spring/summer storm rolling in. A little FYI though, lightning is impossible to get a photo of.
And then came the rain…
Rain can be so incredibly beautiful, can’t it?
How was your easter? Hopefully filled with lots of love, fun and food !
