Saturday Breakfast

All week we have been hearing that Issac would be moving into Indiana and the weekend would be wet.  After a very dry summer rain is certainly welcome!  I think rainy days are meant to be slow.  What better way to start a slow, rainy day then with a leisurely breakfast. 

Before we headed to bed Friday evening I pulled the outside table to the middle of the back porch.  I wasn't sure how heavy it would be raining and wanted to be sure to have dry place to serve breakfast. When I woke up Saturday there was no rain.  So much for Mr. Weatherman's forecast!

If you have been around for a while you know that I have a love for mason jars.  They are so cute and super practical!  Two things that make this girl happy. :)  When I saw this post I knew what I would be serving. 

While these were baking Megan and I got busy making some freshly squeezed orange juice. 

I like my orange juice really cold.  I usually add ice to it, but I don't like it when the ice melts and it gets watered down.  To remedy this I made some orange juice ice cubes the night before.  Problem solved!

I have seen this idea on many blogs.  I thought it would be the icing on the cake along with the breakfast in a jar.

Breakfast was rounded out with hard boiled eggs and fresh fruit. 

We ended up sitting outside for a long time.  Enjoying the sound of the world waking up and the company and silliness of the ones I love most!  .

May your day be filled with joy and contentment!


  1. Wendi, I just love Mason jars as well. I even named my youngest after them! I made two redneck wine glasses this weekend and while we don't drink wine except for special occasions, I discovered last night that they make fantastic ice cream/dessert holders! I will have to try your pin. My daughter loves OJ!

  2. I LOVE Mason jars...I have a special board just for mason jars on my pinterest account. I just clicked on over and started following you. :) Your breakfast and the spot...and the time together sounds absolutely PERFECT. Please come say hi. :)

  3. Wendi,

    Anything in a mason jar automatically gets my attention. How much more charming it is! I loved all of those ideas including yours of making oj ice cubes! Your table setting looks so homey and cozy! I know the best part was just spending time together as a family! You are making wonderful memories!
