Garden Party Birthday Breakfast

(Does that title seem weird to you?

Maybe it should be titled "Birthday Garden Party Breakfast."

Or "Garden Party Breakfast Birthday"

Or "A Party in A Garden Where We Ate Breakfast for A Birthday."

I'll let you pick.)

For my mama's birthday, my seester and I decided to surprise my mom with breakfast! It was fabulous and the weather was gorgeous. I think June 16 is the most perfect day ever. EVER.

SIDE NOTE: That totally reminds of Miss Congeniality when the contestant was asked to describe her "perfect date." Love it. Mine would totally be June 16.

Since breakfast is my most favorite meal and because yesterday was my official "cheat day" for the week, my sister busted out my new favorite recipe: Orange and Dark Chocolate Buttermilk Scones.

And yes, they were just as delicious as they sound. Seriously, the best scones on the FACE OF THE PLANET. I am drooling just thinking about them.Recipe coming henceforth...whatever that means.

With them we served Greek yogurt, fruit with cinnamon and bacon. I heart bacon. I heart it very much.

We also brought over carrot cake (to eat later that day)...

And presents...

And her yard provided the garden...

It was a perfect morning! We even wore our garden party dresses! Really, we did. We all wore dresses. And we had a photo shoot which could have been the highlight of my entire day. I'll post some of those pics soon.

And to top it all off, we had a special guest at the party...

He is cute...

And funny...

And knows how to wear a helmet.

Can you guess who?


Thor never likes to miss out on a good garden party.
