Lunch Date & Brinner

Good morning to you all! What’s shakin’ this morning? Little man just went down for his morning nap so here we are.

As I mentioned yesterday, I had a lunch date planned with my friend Kanika and her daughter, Kaura. We both met up at Bountiful Bread, which is a place I’ve been to a couple of times, and since it was absolutely gorgeous out, we grabbed a table outside.


I ordered a “create your own salad,” with cucumbers, carrots, dried cranberries, grilled chicken, apple slices, and avocado. It was good, but since each topping was an extra charge, it wound up getting quite expensive. So for someone who likes about 1,000,000 toppings in her salad, I’m not sure the create your own option is the way for me to go. Winking smile

The four of us spent a good hour and a half or so just hanging out and catching up. Since Kaura is exactly 4 weeks younger than Lucas, we have a lot in common and a lot to talk about. Thankfully, Lucas was pretty good and just hung out in his car seat, until he started to get hungry. I always bring an emergency bottle with me just in case when I go out…and he almost always winds up taking it.


I wish I had taken a picture without his bib on…he had the cutest little polo on!

He’s also still trying to figure out if he likes his Wubbanub. I bought it for him earlier this week but he doesn’t seem to be crazy about it; he’s a little off and on when it comes to taking a pacifier (sometimes he’s all about it, other times he could care less) but he does seem to like having it near him and he will cuddle with it. Either way, it’s still cute.

A few hours later, my parents came over for dinner, and they came prepared to make us a delicious…brinner! Mmmmm, I love me some breakfast for dinner. Winking smile


My dad actually brought all of his ingredients, including his waffle iron, and made all of us some of his “world famous” waffles. I’ve mentioned these on the blog a few times…they are seriously THE best.

We don’t have any major plans for today, so I am hoping to get out for a walk with Lucas later because it’s another beautiful day out there. Gotta enjoy it while we can!

Talk soon, my friends! Smile

    My daughter wound up being on her binky for about 2 years. In the beginning, she was like Lucas, not sure if she wanted it or not. Wound up, she just didn’t like that style. I bought her a different style, and the rest is history. My son wouldn’t take one at all, though. I kinda wish he had, cuz I was basically his binky for 6 months (if you get what I mean) and OWWWW!

    That salad looks amazing.
    But, that Breakfast for Dinner definitely looks like it has it beaten. I love Brinner, probably my favorite meal to have.
    Enjoy the lovely day with Lucas! He’s too cute.

    We do breakfast for dinner almost every Friday night. I love making homemade waffles for my kids! They think it is such a treat and what they don’t know is that it is a really easy and cheap dinner!! Although….I may need to upgrade my waffle maker!

    I had a Wubbanub for my son when he was about Lucas’ age. My son didn’t seem to care about it too much. He was fine with any old pacifier and I found the Wubbanub to be too big and bulky for him. Now he is almost 9 months old and he loves it! He cuddles with it at night and its pretty cute to see!

    Brinner is the best! Last night I made buckwheat pancakes with blueberries and organic honey. It was so good and so simple, which is perfect after a long day at work!

    I’ve never had fresh waffles…would you believe you can’t buy waffle irons here in Ireland…I keep contemplating shipping one in!!! Random nosey question…did you say you are or aren’t breastfeeding? Or you just not in to doing it in public? I’ve a vague recollection of having read that…
