Aren’t three day weekends the best? There is just something about the extra day that seems so luxurious. I was hoping to catch up on some sleep since I didn’t have to wake up early for work, but unfortunately my brain is pre-wired to get up early on weekdays. Maybe that means I’m growing up! Since the mister and I didn’t have anywhere to be until a barbecue later in the day, I thought it was the perfect time to make homemade breakfast since I never have time during the week.
