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!
Mimosas (we drank EIGHT bottles of champagne. Oops!)
Paula Deen's French Toast Casserole
Biscuits & Gravy
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.....
MY LAND! THEY WERE TASTY!
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?
