Mother’s Day Brunch
Rob and I are extremely lucky to live in the same town
for 18 more days as both of our parents. We love being able to spend so much time with our families and I don’t know how I am going to survive in Pensacola without our weekly Sunday dinners. We knew we wanted to make the most of our time and celebrate mother’s day just hanging out with our moms so we decided to throw a brunch for them at our place. My mom is definitely the entertainer/cook/hostess so it was weird having the roles reversed!
First (and maybe most important!) on the menu was a “Mom-osa Bar” complete with champagne, pomegranate and orange mango juices. We also served breakfast bruschetta, cheddar sausage balls, fruit salsa with cinnamon chips, breakfast kabobs, and raspberry jello pie. Everything was delicious and easy to make/prep ahead to save time in the morning.
Like mother, like son. I couldn’t stop giggling at these pictures of Rob and his mom finishing off the champagne, straight from the bottle!
After brunch, we drove up to DC with our families and walked around the Eastern Market. My mom has never been and I knew she would love it. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and it was the perfect day to explore. I’m truly going to miss DC days like this.
