Mother’s Day Brunch

Maya UnMarketed | Mother's Day Brunch

Good morning everyone! I hope your morning has been cheerful and caffeinated so far! ūüôā

Remember the Mother’s Day brunch I mentioned in my Beach Rompin’ post? Here it is, it all its delicious glory!

Of course, we had to take a couple outfit snaps before we sat down!!

I love this ruffled silk blouse! (Sadly sold out, similar here and here.) I feel like the 3-minute florescent-lit photoshoot doesn’t do it full justice, but it is really beautiful in person. Plus, you can’t beat getting a pure silk blouse for only $19.99!
DSC_1873At least my pretty pink lipstick translated nicely¬†on camera! It’s actually not even mine; it was one my sister left¬†behind at my mom’s place when she headed to¬†college almost 2 years ago haha. But I pulled it out of the bathroom drawer and gave it some love! It’s a sweet and dainty shade for spring, don’t you think?

I wish I’d brought it back to NC and could look up the exact details, but I remember it was a Covergirl and¬†this one¬†in “Phantom Pink” is extremely¬†similar.¬†DSC_1869My palest blush nail polish has also been on repeat! It’s called¬†“Ballet Slippers” but it reminds me more of seashells! Maybe I just have summer on the brain though…DSC_1855The server actually remembered Stephen’s order, even though The Hangar is a newish family tradition. We’ve been once (maybe twice!) a year the past couple years. So we were all seriously impressed when she looked at him and said, “Chicken and waffles, right?”

I¬†guess I’ve got myself a memorable guy ūüėȬ†DSC_1878So, so good!!! That’s a spicy maple sauce and sausage gravy on top! (I may have tried a bite…)Maya UnMarketed | Mother's Day BrunchMy sweet man with two of his favorite ladies!

The only time you’ll catch Stephen ordering sweets at brunch is if there’s lots of savory action on top! Usually¬†I’m the one ordering waffles (I prefer mine with fruit and lots of whipped cream instead of chicken), but these Flying Fish Tacos were to die for!¬†DSC_1879Maya UnMarketed | Mother's Day BrunchOur Mother’s Day celebration was incredible!¬†I’m the most blessed daughter and daughter-in-law!!

Fun fact: my mom and Stephen’s mom were actually friends long before we even got together!

Sometimes I take for granted that everyone is so close but then I’ll see some kind of media reference to the stereotypical daughter-in-law/MIL relationships or hear about¬†a given couple’s families of origin not getting along… and I re-remember how lucky I am.

Like all families, we are not always perfect– but days like this sure are!! <3

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I know this is a bit belated, but at least it’s not as belated as my Easter post, right haha?

Have an amazing, delicious, and love-filled Thursday!
