Sunday Breakfast

One of my favorite blogs, Love and Whimsy by Milynn, has a series called Sunday Breakfast and it always makes me nostalgic for the weekend! My Sunday Breakfast consists of a little tradition that S and I started when we first started living together. We'd go to the farmer's market, pick up small, red potatoes to chop up, red peppers, and onions. After sautee-ing the potatoes, peppers, and onions in a cast iron skillet  we crack an egg over the top and put it in the oven to cook. The egg whites slowly drip in between the potatoes while cooking onto them, and the yolk stays golden and runny. 
This weekend I worked an event that we have every year for a fraternity. Typically fraternities and sororities aren't my thing, but the planner was so nice and the group, as obnoxious as they can be with a few beers in them, they were great too. They were rowdy at times, and made a whole lot of noise when they kicked all of the vendors out of the exhibit hall to do their ritual. Here's just a glimpse of their pig roast on Instagram.
This weekend we also got inspired to get a new bookcase for our living room. Towards the end of the month (the wedding!) we'll have a ton of family and friends in and out of our apartment so I figured we should make the updates that I've wanted to do before they all come. After I convinced S of this, we headed to Ikea. We picked out a lovely bookcase that almost looks like a farmhouse chest - so not Ikea style at all - and we decided to take it home! Until of course they were out of stock. Ikea staff were nice enough to tell us when the next shipment will be in, so I'll keep you posted on our little revamp of this space. Until then, hope that your week is off to a great start!
