My girlfriend Babbo Natale hosted this PJ Brunch Club.  The theme was "Southern Style", and let me tell you.  YUMMMMMMMM!!!!

TEN and I went over early to help Babbo Natale set up, and finish cooking.  She had a wonderful menu prepared, and basically I just stood around and ran my mouth.  TEN did, however, cook the bacon, which was helpful!

We had:

Mimosas (we drank EIGHT bottles of champagne.  Oops!)
Paula Deen's French Toast Casserole
Biscuits & Gravy
Cheese Grits
Three types of yummy breakfast breads

I am from THE SOUTH, as we all know, but I DO NOT eat grits.  Never have.  I'm not sure why.  I think at some point in my life someone fed me some terrible grits, and I've not been able to eat them since.  Shrimp & grits has always been big with my family.  I simply eat the shrimp and avoid the grits :)

Well, at PJ Brunch Club I tried Babbo Natale's cheese grits and.....


I even had a second helping :) 

After drinking more mimosas than I wish to count, we all climbed onto Babbo Natale's bed for the requisite PJ Brunch Club Girl's Picture.  And here it is:

(I'm wearing my new pajama purchase from Old Navy...did you notice?)

And our handsome men:

After brunch TEN and I headed back to my house.  He made a fire, and I started reading The Help.  I then promptly fell asleep for the rest of the day.  All in all, a lovely weekend.

I am, however, ashamed to report that I did NOT commit a random act of kindness :(  I had the best intentions, but no opportunity presented itself.  I, obviously, should have gone out of my way to find an opportunity...but I failed.  I opened a few doors for people, and I did go over to Babbo Natale's early to help her get ready for brunch.  But I wouldn't really consider either of those things "random acts of kindness". 


I'm heading to Kroger to go shopping tonight.  Perhaps something will happen that will allow me to be kind to someone?

Oh, also. I tried grits for the first time the other week..and I just wasn't a fan. Maybe I need to find someone to make me a good batch of them.

I love grits! And everyone up here thinks I am crazy. Could eat them every single day.

You need to go to the grocery store during the day where you get the little old men and ladies!

Last week my mom and I were grocery shopping and there was an old lady in her hover-round on the milk aisle. She looked confused and I said ma'am do you need some help? She looked at me with the most desperate eyes and said, not shitting you, "I just want some sour cream and onion potater chips!" hahahah I ended up taking her list and grabbing the rest of her things for her while my mom continued shopping!!

I love the PJs, too cute!

I love, love grits! It's all about how they are made though.

I don't know how my family got into grits because while I was born in SC, my parents are from Ohio. Anyway - we eat peanut butter in our grits. Everyone scowls when I tell them that, but then they try it and LOVE it.

PJ Brunch Club looks super fun...I may have to suggest this to my friends!
