Today we’re here to share with you part one of our Breakfast in Bed series shot by Mackenzie Lamoureux Photography and styled by me, Amanda – oh, and I can’t forget to add a huge thank you to my handsome boyfriend for putting up with my crazy creative ideas (you’re the real MVP).
But, anyway, back to the blog.
Are you anxiously awaiting the weekend and maybe feeling a bit of the mid-week blues? This post hopefully will color up your day with some pretty pictures and inspiration for your weekend to come.
So, we all see “date night in” ideas on Pinterest, they’re composed of chinese food & a movie or card games & a few drinks… and, don’t get me wrong those can be fun, but how about spicing up your “date night in” with a little breakfast in bed? Now, as Kenzie pointed out in her blog post, we did not “wake up like this” however, many mornings of ours are spent together cooking omelets and drinking coffee. It’s our quiet time before our busy day begins. We both live a crazy hectic life so we embrace the little quiet time in the morning we get to spend together.
With that being said, we hope you enjoy the photos and have a wonderful rest of the week and an even better weekend! Continue scrolling to see a full style guide & recipe.
Recipe for 1 omelet:
eggs – beat 2 eggs in side bowl and pour over skillet on medium heat
spinach – add a handful spinach and break into smaller pieces – add as the egg begins to cook
ham – I use two slices of ham (but you could use any sort of meat/protein) and again break them into smaller pieces and add into the cooking omelet
turkey bacon – a healthier alternative to bacon that will add a nice flavor to your omelet. before cooking the egg, pop two slices in the microwave or on a skillet so they’re already cooked and ready to throw into the egg once it’s partially cooked
cheese – top with a handful of cheese & fold the omelet over and make sure the egg is fully cooked!
top with salt & pepper to taste!
