The Little Things (See Jane's Weekend)

egg in a hole

I had a very low-key weekend.  Constant work travel, in addition to weekends away (visiting my brother and sister-in-law in LA and spending time with friends in Atlanta), has made me crave a much-needed recharge at home.  I've had a great time in the past few whirlwind weeks but sometimes you just want to lay low.  This act of 'laying low' is generally defined as:  making my own breakfast and coffee, because going outside in the cold, while hungry, requires a little too much effort in my opinion.

Now that it isn't Monday and you can think more clearly, tell me:  how was your weekend?

I totally understand - actually one of the things I hate most is getting up & going outside for breakfast. I'd rather have it delivered in bed ;)

I LOVE low key weekends. If you take away church and a quick shopping trip on Saturday that's what I did his weekend...haha (except my mom is the one who made breakfast)

I agree with everything you said....our weekends seemed to be very similar - time to hibernate! PS - hope you are gone and missing this BLIZZARD!!!

mmm... egg in a frame. I eat one for lunch every day! (Ok, two.) My weekend was nuts... successfully moved to Vermont just in time for a massive snowstorm! Working from home rules...this much I know.

I need weekends to recharge as well. If I don't get any downtime, Mondays are really rough. Your weekend sounds wonderful and so relaxing. And your coffee with whipped cream looks delicious!

We used to call that egg in a nest. hahaha!! I opened up your post and almost darted directly into the kitchen. Yum!

On that note can you believe it's only Tuesday? I need a nap. Weekends really are the best recharge times and it sounds like you did so in grand style. Your flowers are so pretty!

Low-key weekends are the BEST. I would kill for one where I'm not doing homework for 12 hours, personally... And your breakfast looks delicious!

Sounds absolutely perfect if you ask me! And I love egg in the hole - never really knew what it was called but I used to make this all the time in college.
