After the incredible Farmers’ Dinner on Saturday evening, Mal and I had grand plans to sleep in late on Sunday morning (king bed, no pug), but somehow we were wide awake at 7:30 AM. Whomp whomp. I guess we were really looking forward to breakfast!

You see, during dinner the night before, we chatted with a couple of the PR folks from Hotel Vermont about the amazing breakfast that they had eaten at Juniper that morning. Mal and I had originally planned to have brunch at Penny Cluse (just like his undergrad days), but our conversation about Juniper totally swayed us. Everything just sounded so delicious!

So, on Sunday morning, once we had a chance to get ourselves ready for the day, Mal and I headed downstairs to Juniper for breakfast and grabbed a couple of seats at the bar.

Our first order of business: coffee! I ordered a decaf almond milk latte, which was outstanding. Seriously, it was incredible. The espresso was perfect and, get this, the almond milk was homemade, so it was super-duper creamy. What a treat!

When our meals arrived, Mal was so excited about his Eggs Benedict, he insisted that I take a photo of it for the blog. It was served on a homemade English muffin with sautéed kale on the side, and he absolutely loved it.

I ordered the egg sandwich (also served on a homemade English muffin) with cheddar and grilled kale. It was so tasty and probably one of the healthiest breakfast sandwiches I have ever eaten.

After breakfast, we packed up our things, took a quick belly shot (I’m getting big!), and checked out of the hotel.


After that, Mal and I wandered around Church Street and did a little shopping for about an hour, but we eventually needed to head home to pick up Murphy from the “dog spa” (aka our friend’s house) and then go to a Super Bowl party.


When we got home, we gave Murphy a special present!

He loved it! Mal obviously did too. Go Cats go!

We watched the Super Bowl at our friends’ house. The guys huddled around the TV while the ladies chatted by the food. The Super Bowl is alllll about the food for me!


Mal ended up being the dog whisperer during the game! Haha!

Congrats to the Seahawks!


Questions of the Day

What’d you do for the Super Bowl?

What was your favorite Super Bowl commercial?

I honestly didn’t watch too much of the Super Bowl (chatting + food + uneventful game), but I caught this commercial over the weekend and thought it was so funny! Just wanted to share!
