Breakfast Bonding

I love finding quirky little breakfast spots.

Breakfast is my favorite meal to socialize over. It's fresh, it's a great start to the day, and the food is delicious. There's something special about sharing that first meal of the day with friends.

My friend Jenni discovered that this weekend there was a Fashion Market being held here in Houston, so she bought us tickets, and off we went. Before checking out all the lovely fashion stalls, we had a lovely breakfast at Boheme. While we ate, there was a constant stream of lovely music - alternating between spicy flamenco and beautiful French - it really put me in the mood for shopping!

What were the highlights of your weekend?

Dionne, I'll take your Patina Green in downtown McKinney if you consider taking me to this incredible restaurant for breakfast! Gorgeous decor and the waffle is seriously making my mouth water! How was the Fashion Market?

Nicole Egerer said...

All those breakfast photos are making me hungry! :) I'd have to agree, breakfast/ brunch is a fun meal to share with others.

The highlights of this last weekend included a church BBQ and my husbands first sermon :) It was an awesome weekend for sure!

Thanks for sharing! I will have a whole list of fun places to visit when I make it to Texas someday.

Kind Regards,
Nicole

Sey said...

what a great way to start a day. Your friend is so sweet. Look at the waffle, it's so mouth watering. I love it.

Kristin said...

you are adorable! and those waffles look fantastic. My question is, how do you eat so much delicious food and still look so trim and perfect? i'm afraid I'd grow to 500 pounds if I ate like you!

Anyhoo... I had a fantastic weekend... dinner out with friends to celebrate some recent birthdays on Friday, a lovely lunch at an adorable little cafe (coincidentally, called "Lovely Bake Shop") - that I know you would just love - on Saturday, and the rest of the weekend was spent cuddling with my kiddies.

Caroline said...

I agree, breakfast is my favorite meal as well. I love the simplicity of a good breakfast. Tea, Toast, and Jam!!! MMM!

Breakfast is my favourite meal to share as well! Sometimes we even do "brinner" (breakfast at dinner) if we have been too busy in the morning to properly enjoy it. My husband and I went out for bagels and hot chocolates on Friday morning actually :) x

Melanie's Randomness said...

I love breakfast!! I had an awesome breakfast with my boyfriend Sunday morning. Definitely bonding over breakfast! =)

Tender Branson said...

Great shot of the waffles and grapes. The highlights of my weekend were a trip to a much missed pizza joint.

Shea said...

It's been such a long time since I've been out for breakfast or cooked a big breakfast--I need to do that! I love breakfast foods--I think it's the combination of sweet and savory.

what a beautiful photo of you!!!!!!!!!

Brandi {not your average ordinary} said...

Now those waffles are really something else! Breakfast is absolutely my favorite meal. I could probably eat it three times a day. Without a doubt. Especially if there were waffles like that involved. I think I might need to take a trip to Texas next summer.

Jess said...

Kristin B said...
