Mother’s Day is almost upon us…Even though I am a mighty fantastic Mother…I never really think of that on Mother’s Day, I always think of my own sweet Mother! Love her and all she has taught me! Not only has she filled my life with fantastic food, great parties, and tons of laughter (My Mother is quiet a character!) but, she has spiritually and emotionally fill my soul to the rim!! She is quite a gal!! These little ideas are all things that honor my Mother in some way or another and our color scheme was pick around her bedroom colors. She will look great sitting in bed eating her breakfast. Even if she is out of bed when I see her...I am making her get back in it so I can bring her brunch!!!
So let’s begin with brunch…I super enjoy an orange roll…my Mother makes THE best. Admittedly, I don’t always want to do all the work she is willing to do. SOOOOO, I altered the ever famous Monkey Bread Recipe that is pretty much known to the entire world. Sunrise Monkey Bread seriously rocks my family’s mornings. It is simple, quick, and OH SO fresh tasting! They are gooey and D-LISH!
Anyone who knows me very well knows I love all things BERRY! This quick and healthy berry breakfast is wonderful and I never get sick of it!!! The sauce is light and goes perfectly with the berries!! If your mom is the type that likes a light healthy breakfast...this is perfect. If she is they type that needs a bigger kick in the morning this will make a great side! By the way...the combo makes a great brunch!!!
I really wanted to deliver this glorious breakfast on a fabulous tray…couldn’t find what I was looking for!! Shoot, I had to make it. I added handles to frames and reinforced the glass and back. I wrote a little poem about “Breakfast-in-Bed” and put it in the frame. I can’t wait to serve my Mother from her new tray!
What's wrong with thinking your the Queen? Nothing! I got out a few crafting supplies to make a crown and my daughter asked what I was going to make. I told her I was making a crown for Mother's Day. She quickly told me that "You can't make yourself the Queen, I will do it for you!" I had such a difficult time handing over the supplies but she did me proud. She did lots of cutting, pasting, and glittering! Then she added lace and gems...a girl after my own heart! It was a fun project for her to do and she wants everyone to know that SHE made it not her crazy Mother!
