Mom's belated Birthday Brunch

Well! I was so excited slash anxious about trying to make one of my mothers favorite cupcakes that I woke up this morning at 6 am. No turning back. I'm not sure what time I went to sleep but it was not early. Thankfully I woke up a couple hours ago feeling very rested from a nice nap in the crook of my sweeties arm. Ahhhh..... Eeew gross I know!

I decided to make Red Velvet Cupcakes!! Also, a quiche that is tried and true. It's a Swedish recipe that I converted. Even though I thought I was well prepared with enough time, like clock work, I was running late! Everything came out of the oven in a timely manner, and Ryan cleaned up after me as I went. What a guy. My sister acted as sous chef once she got here and helped me frost the cupcakes.

Ryan happened to get a rather awesome new "app" for his iphone which allows you to take pictures through different "lenses" and act like different toy cameras. So we took a bunch of antique photos. We'll start with the real ones....





Now for the "antique" photos...
"Look MOM we magically transported back to the 70's just for you! Awww you can thank me later."




All in all everything was great! We drank mimosas, my sister brought delicious bread (she's still got Fennell in her blood) and salad. Everyone enjoyed it. Although Owen was distracted by Aunties drum set. We were all very impressed with his skills! My favorite was him playing all drums and cymbal and shouting the ABC's at the top of his lungs.

Aw wish I could have been there, instead of in my near unconscious state of periodic hallucination. But I ate a cupcake this morning and it was delicious!
