Memorial Day Mimosas

Last weekend, Jay and I were thoughtfully given a bottle of champagne to celebrate our engagement.  Luckily, it made it back to Raleigh in one piece and tonight, we decided to pop it open before dinner for a toast (Zoe was actually quite intrigued by the “POP” & not at all scared).  We toasted to a weekend of not doing anything at all.

After we ate, we decided to make mimosas.  Well, a real mimosa for Jay (champagne & orange juice) and a poinsettia for me (champagne & cranberry juice).


I’m still sipping mine as I write this post while beginning to watch this season’s Supernatural that have been saved up on the DVR since September, but it’s delicious.  I heaped praise on the cake from last Saturday (I’ll have to post pictures ASAP) but I love and am so grateful for the champagne!

P.S. I really don’t want to go back to work tomorrow!  Now that I’ve had time to relax, I have a ton of stuff to do around the apt.  I could use another 3 days off lol or a job where I can work from home so I can do things like redecorate in between doing work haha.

P.P.S. Last night, Jay had his first attempt at biscuits & gravy for dinner (we had a breakfast-for-dinner night).  He wanted a picture of it documented so he could show his Grandma Ruth it, since she’s a biscuits & gravy master.
